Lenny Henry’s Caribbean Britain

9pm, BBC Two

Lenny Henry’s mum had simple advice for growing up in Dudley, in the West Midlands: “You have to integrate.” But throughout his career, he has found doing so increasingly complex. How far have artists of Caribbean heritage had to integrate as they’ve taken centre stage? Is it celebration or sacrifice? In this eye-opening two-parter, Henry surveys the explosion of British-Caribbean culture – from calypso music to politically incorrect comedies – with guests including David Harewood and Andi Oliver.

Billie Jean King: Amol Rajan Interviews

7pm, BBC Two

Wimbledon and Pride combine in this chat with the tennis great and activist. King looks back on her time, during the 1960s and 70s, as the world’s No 1 player who, challenged in 1973 to play against a man, Bobby Riggs, defeated him, but was publicly outed in the 80s – which meant losing sponsorship deals.

Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star

8pm, BBC Three

The pressure is on this semi-final, as the four remaining makeup artists work backstage at London fashion week, readying models for the runway.

The Great British Sewing Bee

9pm, BBC One

The charming sew-off reaches the semi-final stage with the four remaining stitchers faced with a trio of Japan-related tasks. Their upcycling and origami-adjacent skills will be tested, but first is a kimono dress challenge that reveals this minimalist design is fiendishly difficult to recreate. GV

The Savoy

9pm, ITV

The upmarket documentary following tamped-down staff at London’s most venerable hotel continues. Beneath the usual veneer of unflappable calm there is a frisson of tension as the Savoy – not long reopened – awaits the arrival of both an incognito hotel inspector and Masked Singer veteran Alan Johnson.

Jerry & Marge Go Large (David Frankel, 2022), Paramount+
Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening make for a lovely couple in David Frankel’s fact-based comedy-drama. He has recently retired after 42 years in admin at a cornflake factory and is dreading the prospect of his “golden years” when he discovers a loophole in a lottery game that means he can win big … very big. There’s no breaking bad here – unless you count an insufferable Harvard student who gets the same idea – just two people who want to give back to their community by getting them involved in the plan, while revelling in a belated new lease of life.
