ON-DE­MAND TV One Deadly Week­end In Amer­ica, BBC3 via iPlayer

SLICKLY pro­duced doc­u­men­tary that dis­plays all too clearly the dif­fer­ence that gun laws can make when tem­pers fray. Styled like a thriller, it re­counts the shoot­ings of one week­end in July. From Sun­day, 10am.

FREE­VIEW CLAS­SIC The A-Team, 5pm, Spike

DE­SPITE all the guns fired and grenades thrown, and all the tanks hastily as­sem­bled in barns from old cars and bits of metal, only one per­son ever died in this Eight­ies clas­sic — Gen­eral Fubright, and he was killed by the Viet­namese. This is a re­peat from the start for the ad­ven­tures of that most mem­o­rable gang of Han­ni­bal, B.A., et al (pic­tured).

ALL THAT GLIT­TERS . . . The Se­cret World Of Gold, 6.55pm, PBS Amer­ica

DOC­U­MEN­TARY that starts out like stan­dard his­tory, then rolls out its big idea: for ev­ery 100 ounces of gold traded on the stock mar­ket, there may not even be one ounce of real gold to back it up. A fas­ci­nat­ing idea, well ex­plained.

ROM­COM star­ring Kather­ine Heigl and Josh Duhamel as the duo left as guardians of their god­daugh­ter when the child’s par­ents die, even though they can’t stand each other. A match­mak­ing ploy from be­yond the grave, per­haps, with added cute­ness in the form of the bur­bling babe.

HEART­BREAKER This Was My Dad, 10pm, BBC4

GE­OF­FREY MATTHEWS went from be­ing a top car designer to fi­nan­cial dis­as­ter, with dis­tant re­la­tion­ships with his six chil­dren.

MODERN LOVE Con­victed For Love, 10pm, More4

SEN­SI­TIVE new film that ex­plores the par­tial de­crim­i­nal­i­sa­tion of ho­mo­sex­u­al­ity in 1967, look­ing at how gay men were sub­jected to ‘treat­ments’ to con­vert them in the years that fol­lowed . . .

MODERN GIRL Katie Price: My Crazy Life, 10pm, Quest Red

‘I NEED more pic­tures of me about the house,’ says Price af­ter a 6ft por­trait of her face is ush­ered through the door by a fan. This new se­ries on her fam­ily life is weirdly mes­meris­ing . . .
