BEST OF THE REST

THE GRA­HAM NOR­TON SHOW BBC1, 10.40PM

OH, how dif­fer­ent things could have been! In a par­al­lel uni­verse, it is the first fe­male Pres­i­dent of the United States who is ap­pear­ing on Gra­ham’s show tonight. Where they laugh together about how ter­ri­ble things might have been if Don­ald Trump had won the elec­tion.

In­stead, it’s as a for­mer Sec­re­tary of State and First Lady that Hil­lary Clin­ton takes to the red sofa, along­side her ac­tivist and au­thor daugh­ter Chelsea. They’ll be dis­cussing The Book of Gutsy Women, which they’ve writ­ten together, and which the pair of them clearly em­body. They’ll be joined by TV chef and cam­paigner Jamie Oliver and co­me­dian/ au­thor/ac­tor/uber-geek brain­box David Mitchell, dis­cussing his new book’. Ke­sha is on hand to pro­vide the mu­sic.

ANDY MUR­RAY: RESUR­FAC­ING AMA­ZON PRIME

IN the sum­mer of 2017 Andy Mur­ray was on top of the world – lit­er­ally, as the world’s num­ber one player – and about to de­fend his Wim­ble­don ti­tle. But when the hip in­jury which had been plagu­ing him be­came un­bear­able, life sud­denly looked very dif­fer­ent.

What fol­lowed was two years of agony and mul­ti­ple surg­eries, as the Grand Slam cham­pion slipped down the rank­ings and even­tu­ally found him­self com­pletely un­able to play. Fac­ing the end of his ca­reer at just 30 was a dev­as­tat­ing and ter­ri­fy­ing time. This in­ti­mate and in­spir­ing doc­u­men­tary fol­lows the ten­nis champ’s re­mark­able come­back from in­jury and tells his story, giv­ing a unique insight into just what it took.

Sir Andy Mur­ray
