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.
