Monday Autumnwatch 8pm, BBC Two
AAAAAND relax, as the best looking of all the year’s Watches returns for its annual survey of the melancholy splendours of the season. Presenters Chris Packham, Michaela Strachan and Martin Hughes Games have set up home again in their glorious base at the National Trust’s Sherborne Park Estate in the Cotswolds, to catch up with the various badgers, barn owls and otters we last saw in Springwatch, and introduce us to whole host of new faces near and far – including a family of urban foxes living on the south coast, being spied on by Gillian Burke, who is out to put them through some sneaky intelligence tests. The series continues nightly until Thursday; look out on Wednesday for some worms. Meanwhile, there’s more going on via the BBC’s Red Button channel, where you can find a selection of wildlife films from across this year’s Watch, including the busy beavers of Cornwall, the rare summer migrants to Nottinghamshire, and the work of brotherly wildlife illustrators Richard and Ian Lewington.
