TV tonight: Brassic is back for more brilliantly daft hijinks

Another series of hidden-economy hijinks as this daft, likable comedy romp returns. Joe Gilgun’s Vinnie is out of prison, but there’s a snag – his nemesis, DCI Slater, has been nursing a grudge. So what better time to embark on a scheme to steal frozen bull semen? In fact, why not go one step further and steal the bull? The plotting isn’t exactly subtle, but Gilgun is impossible to dislike – and you’ll learn a bunch of amusing euphemisms. Phil Harrison

Selma (Ava DuVernay, 2014), 11.15pm, BBC Two
Ava DuVernay continues the quest to bring the history of the US civil rights movement to the big screen with her 2014 drama about Martin Luther King’s 1965 voting rights marches from Selma to Montgomery in Alabama. She has conjured a rousing tale, which covers the headline names but also gives agency to the black people on the ground, suffering and dying for justice. However, it revolves around King, with all his frailties and fortitude, in a bravura performance from David Oyelowo. Simon Wardell
