DCI Tom Barnaby may have retired but there’s something warm and cosy about these earlier outings with their immutable English scenery and bodies in the shrubbery. Tonight, 8.30pm, UKTV. Live Like an Animal: This is an intriguing series; last week three ‘‘beaver buffs’’ (true) set out to build shelters, sleep and eat like these crafty animals. Tonight an intrepid trio of wasp-watchers are setting up a bivouac in New York’s Central Park. Wednesday, 7.30pm, Nat Geo Wild.
