Kevin Whately and Lau­rence Fox (right, with guest star Celia Im­rie) re­turn as Lewis and Hath­away in the first of four new episodes of the Morse se­quel. The plot is as mad as ever, but the pro­duc­tion val­ues, lo­ca­tions and starry cast make it all ir­re­sistibly watch­able.

Her In­dian Shake­speare Quest takes Felic­ity Kendal (right) back to the land of her child­hood, where she re­calls her early days, meets old friends, and dis­cov­ers the ex­tra­or­di­nary grip that Shake­speare still has on the In­dian imag­i­na­tion.

Hid­den Tal­ent

9PM, CH4 This week’s typ­i­cally in­spir­ing show seeks out peo­ple with an un­sus­pected tal­ent for opera singing – and, sep­a­rately, a nat­u­ral abil­ity to find their way around with­out map or com­pass. In both cases, the tal­ent is very well hid­den – but real. .

Des­per­ate Housewives

Two Greedy Ital­ians: Still Hun­gry

8PM, BBC2 The last leg of Gen­naro Con­taldo and An­to­nio Car­luc­cio’s tour takes them from ru­ral Lazio to so­phis­ti­cated Rome, pon­der­ing the chang­ing iden­tity of the Ital­ian male – but mostly cook­ing, eat­ing, bick­er­ing and hav­ing fun.

The Great Euro Crash With Robert Pe­ston

9PM, BBC2 The BBC’S busi­ness ed­i­tor gives us a sober­ing ac­count of the state of the Euro. De­spite a mind-bog­gling tril­lion-euro cash in­jec­tion, it seems Europe’s econ­omy re­mains on the brink.

The New Ir­ish: Af­ter The Bust
