9PM, BBC4 ★★★★

A fun round-up of songs and sto­ries in which Seal (left) re­mem­bers the joy when his song with Adamski, Killer, went to num­ber one – he ran to the bath­room and started cry­ing. Still, this was also the year that the power of TOTP was start­ing to wane next to com­peti­tors such as The Hitman & Her.

BRAVE NEW WORLD

9PM, SKY ONE ★★★★

Sky’s new drama based on Al­dous Hux­ley’s book looks in­cred­i­ble. It’s set in a seem­ingly utopian New Lon­don, where pri­vacy is a thing of the past, peo­ple are ranked, and drugged he­do­nism is the rule. In part one, Len­ina (Jes­sica Brown Find­lay, left) is ac­cused of break­ing this world’s code.

RAN­DOM ACTS OF FLY­NESS

9.35PM, SKY COM­EDY ★★★★ Sit­ting some­where be­tween sketch com­edy and an art in­stal­la­tion, this race-con­scious new HBO se­ries from Ter­ence Nance (left) def­i­nitely feels like some­thing new. Tonight’s open­ing salvo in­cludes an in­fomer­cial hosted by Jon Hamm, and a sur­real chil­dren’s show called Ev­ery­body Dies! RW

SI­MON EVANS GOES TO MAR­KET

11.30PM,

RA­DIO 4 EX­TRA HHHH

Si­mon Evans wears well-cut tweeds and pol­ished brogues for his com­edy gigs, and as­sumes the man­ner of a head­mas­ter try­ing to get a few sim­ple points across at a school assem­bly.

In this four-part re­peated se­ries, Si­mon – with the help of guests and res­i­dent ex­perts – ex­plains eco­nom­ics. He’ll fo­cus on the com­modi­ties oil, gold, grain and, start­ing this week, land. Us­ing wit and brain power, he de­liv­ers his com­edy econ­omy rou­tine, bring­ing us laughs and a glim­mer of com­pre­hen­sion. Clever stuff.
