VAN DER VALK
9PM, ITV3 ★★★ A repeat from the start for ITV’S slick take on the 1970s drama, starring Marc Warren as the world-weary Dutch detective Piet Van der Valk (left). In this first case, it seems there could be a link between two dead bodies found on the same day. The original series is repeated on Fridays at 9pm on Talking Pictures TV.
9PM, BBC4 ★★★ Tensions rise in the second double bill of this Aussie crime drama as the bones found by the archaeologist (The Bridge’s Sofia Helin) stir up trouble with secretive indigenous folk. Adding to the all-pervading sense of unease is the investigation of Fran (Jada Alberts, left), who believes the bones could be the remains of her cousin, Zoe.
HOW THE UNIVERSE WORKS
10PM, DISCOVERY ★★★
In 2009, Stephen Hawking (left) threw a champagne party for time travellers. Nobody turned up, but tonight’s new episode suggests that time travel is possible, and speed seems to be a part of it – astronauts orbiting the planet at 17,000mph age slower than we do on Earth, for instance. ROBIN WIGGS

anti-submarine tactics. Shockley worked on transistors, semiconductors and other scientific innovations, and was the driving force behind Silicon Valley in the 1950s. Stanley Tucci tells the story of Shockley, who was a terrible boss, a bad father, a racist and, by the time he was dead, hardly on speaking terms with anyone.
