TV tonight: art sleuths Fiona Bruce and Philip Mould return

Fiona Bruce and the art historian Philip Mould return for a new series of their art-sleuthing show, working out each week whether a discovered work could be a priceless original or a cheap copycat. Veering from their usual medium of paintings, this week, Bruce and Mould find an abstract sculpture in a Norfolk garden, which they think could be by Henry Moore. Mould first travels to Moore’s home and studio in Hertfordshire to look through his catalogue, then a 3D scan and scientific testing work out the material of the sculpture itself. Ammar Kalia

Carrie (Brian De Palma, 1976), 1.20am, Film4
The final film in the channel’s night of Stephen King-related films (Pet Sematary and Misery precede it) is this crackling teenie-terror tale from Brian De Palma. Waif-like Sissy Spacek is the put-upon kid unleashing telekinetic powers to avenge herself on catty schoolmates. Spacek and Piper Laurie, as her disturbed mum, are excellent. Paul Howlett
