IN­SIDE FACE­BOOK: SE­CRETS OF THE SO­CIAL NET­WORK Tues­day, Chan­nel 4, 9pm

IT’S a sober­ing thought, but for a gen­er­a­tion of kids born in the last decade or more, they will never have known a time when peo­ple didn’t spend hours click­ing on an­i­mated GIFs posted by their friends, or spend hours more press­ing ‘Like”.

Face­book is, of course, a phe­nom­e­non which has changed the way we get our news and snoop on our near­est and dear­est. But who de­cides what can and can­not be posted on the world’s big­gest so­cial me­dia site? Here’s a chance to find out in an in­ves­ti­ga­tion which looks at how those de­ci­sions are made. It also ex­plores the im­pact that they have on the mil­lions of peo­ple who use Face­book. Af­ter watch­ing this, you may never look at that hugely ad­dic­tive so­cial me­dia site in the same way again.

THIS IS US Wed­nes­day, More4, 9pm

IN the US, this mov­ing drama has been a huge hit – the episode Super Bowl Sun­day was the most-watched scripted en­ter­tain­ment show to air on Amer­i­can TV in a decade.

If you want fur­ther proof of its suc­cess, check out the guest star in this edi­tion as Kate vis­its Kevin on the set of his movie and meets one of his fel­low ac­tors, Sylvester Stal­lone, who ap­pears as him­self.

OUR SHIRLEY VALEN­TINE SUM­MER Thurs­day, ITV, 9.30pm

THE play (and sub­se­quent movie) Shirley Valen­tine told the story of a bored house­wife who found a new lease of life when she went to Greece on hol­i­day.

But could a trip to the Greek is­lands have a sim­i­lar ef­fect on a group of fe­male celebri­ties who feel they have reached a cross­roads in their own lives?

Melinda Mes­sen­ger, Sian Lloyd, Nancy Dell’Olio, Ag­gie MacKen­zie, Ninia Ben­jamin, Lizzie Cundy, Annabel Giles, and In­grid Tar­rant are all sin­gle and all have a per­sonal goal in mind, whether it’s boost­ing their con­fi­dence, get­ting over a mar­riage break­down or find­ing a new ca­reer. Some of them are also hop­ing to find love. But can they dis­cover what they are look­ing for in the Greek is­lands.

SMASH­ING HITS! THE 80’S POP MAP OF BRI­TAIN & IRE­LAND Fri­day, BBC4, 10pm

THE fas­ci­nat­ing se­ries con­cludes with a look at the mu­si­cal north-south di­vide that emerged in the 1980s.

Pre­sen­ters Midge Ure and Kim Ap­pleby dis­cover that as dance mu­sic be­came more in­flu­en­tial, Lon­don and Manch­ester bat­tled it out to be Bri­tain’s cap­i­tal of pop. In­ter­vie­wees in­clude Shaun Ry­der from The Happy Mon­days and Peter Hook of New Or­der.
