FIVE THINGS FOR YOUR WEEK...
Men In Kilts: A Roadtrip with Sam and Graham StarzPlay, from Sunday
Sam Heughan and Graham McTavish became fast friends while working on Outlander, and now they’re back together, hitting the road to introduce viewers to aspects of Scotland that certainly weren’t featured in the smash-hit series – as well as a few that were. The pair are travelling the length and breadth of their beloved homeland and will get the opportunity to research the real-life counterparts of their fictional characters, although the main focus appears to be on having as much fun while sampling as many different experiences as possible. During the eight-part series, they will offer their unique perspectives on everything from the Battle of Culloden to whisky tasting and folk dancing.
C4, 10pm, Sunday
Some people may have originally been a bit bemused by the idea of a drama anthology series set in the world of the Coen brothers Oscar-winning film Fargo, but not focusing on the same characters. However, the first three series proved that the concept definitely worked, and brought us great performances from Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Kirsten Dunst and Ewan McGregor among others. So expectations are high for this fourth instalment, which unfolds in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1950 and sees two crime syndicates vying for control.
Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix Highlights
C4, 6.30pm, Sunday
Steve Jones, David Coulthard and Billy Monger present highlights of the fourth race of the season. Fast and flowing, the intensely demanding at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is one favoured by many drivers. Like many around the world, it’s been dominated by
Lewis Hamilton, left, for the last four years. The Mercedes driver executed a near-perfect race in 2020, leading every lap from pole to finish ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas.
The Queen and Her Cousins with Alexander Armstrong
ITV & STV, 9pm, Monday
Originally set to be shown shortly after Prince Philip’s death, this documentary was pulled in favour of a tribute to him, but it should be worth the wait. Although Alexander Armstrong is not of royal blood himself, the Pointless host is nevertheless curious to know what it means to be part of the extended royal family. He travels across the country to meet Her Majesty’s cousins.
The New Conspiracist various platforms
Flat earth. The Great Replacement. Conspiracy theories are swirling around like never before – tormenting mistrust, infecting our politics, and even tearing families apart. But Brit Award-winning comedian Jolyon Rubinstein and investigative journalist James Ball are here to save the day. Or at least try. Every episode takes one conspiracy theory – from niche to widespread, deadly serious to trivial – and one great guest, and dissects what makes it tick, what it tells us, and why it matters.
