ARM­CHAIR TRAV­ELLER Va­ca­tion, Va­ca­tion, Va­ca­tion: Real-es­tate gu­rus Kirstie and Phil are swap­ping homes for hol­i­days, track­ing down the best deals, in­clud­ing lux­ury for less, in this new se­ries; one can’t imag­ine Kirstie back­pack­ing in her trade­mark stilet­tos but per­haps the hen­pecked Phil will be car­ry­ing her along. Thurs­day, 7.30pm, Life­style. THE po­ten­tial for a cock­tail coma is tremen­dous at Clive’s Clas­sic Lounge at Chateau Vic­to­ria, an up­hill stroll from Silk Road. Aussie bar­keep Shawn Soole and his off­sider Nate Cau­dle are com­mit­ted to the re­vival of the clas­sic cock­tail, from the Moscow Mule to the South­ern Belle. The tipsy punches change daily and in­fused spir­its are a house spe­cialty. It’s a snug bar off the lobby of an other­wise plain ho­tel; as a Cam­pari devo­tee, I have my socks knocked off by a foamy Ital­ian Sour (Cam­pari, Strega, Gif­fard vanilla syrup, lemon juice and egg white).

Yel­low­stone: This muchap­plauded doco se­ries looks at a year in the life of Yel­low­stone Na­tional Park, with in­clu­sions di­vided by sea­son; in tonight’s episode, sum­mer looms, the park is thaw­ing out and the bi­son, elks and mi­grant birds are on the move. Fri­day, 9.30pm, BBC Knowl­edge.
