今夜のテレビ: David Attenborough takes our plant obsession to a whole new level

David Attenborough is back to breathe some life into 2022 with this documentary series all about plants. 最初に: tropical worlds – from the fierce leafy battle for space on the forest floor of Costa Rica (it gets a bit Little Shop of Horrors at times) to the risky defence tactics of the poison arrow tree in Australia’s most ancient rainforest. Utterly fascinating – and don’t turn your back on those house plants. ホリー・リチャードソン

Our intrepid trio reach Hong Kong, the commercial heart of the far east. While Abigail is looking forward to a “bath the size of Shropshire”, there’s a “tiny fly in the ointment”: the bank has blocked Phileas’s finances. Things go from bad to worse after Abigail prints an article that stitches him up like the proverbial kipper. アリ・カットラル

As the 11th series continues, Vera (Brenda Blethyn) suspects an inside job when a heist at a shipping container results in the death of a security foreman. A mystery involving local drug rings and kidnapping ensues. いつものように, much of the joy stems from no-nonsense Vera herself, zipping through the case with one-liners and characteristic grit. Henry Wong

“Are you sure you wanna know who you really are? なぜなら, メイト, you’re not gonna like it … ” At the end of last week’s cliffhanger, Luci (Shalom Brune-Franklin) then told the Man (Jamie Dornan) his real name and the fact that he had killed someone. As episode three of the amnesia thriller kicks off, Dornan’s character will be less keen to go the police with Luci. 代わりに, he’ll be asking her a lot of questions, such as the all-important: “Who the hell are you?」 HR

After the Storm, 12.10午前, BBCTwo

Hirokazu Kore-eda’s 2016 drama is another of the great Japanese film-maker’s understated, comic tales of fractured families and the ways they find to muddle through life. Hiroshi Abe plays Ryôta, a divorced, one-time novelist now gambling away his earnings as a private detective and neglecting his young son. His encounters with his no-nonsense widowed mother Yoshiko (Kore-eda regular Kirin Kiki) and long-suffering ex-wife Kyōko (Yōko Maki) nudge him slowly towards sorting his life out, though not exactly in the way he was hoping for.

The Sisters Brothers, 10午後, BBCTwo

Jacques Audiard, the French director of Rust and Bone, is not the first person you would expect to do a western. But this 2018 film is a fine piece of work, nodding respectfully to the genre staples of gunplay and glorious vistas while sneaking in moments of existential reflection. John C Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix play Eli and Charlie, the chalk-and-cheese assassin siblings of the title, sent to follow Jake Gyllenhaal’s scout John Morris to California and then kill a chemist, Hermann Warm (Riz Ahmed), who has developed a potentially lucrative method for extracting gold from rivers.
