TV Tonight: Ant and Dec are back together on Britain’s Got Talent | Television & radio


Unstoppable: Sean Scully and the Art of Everything

9pm, BBC Two

As one admirer puts it in this documentary portrait, the Irish abstract painter Sean Scully’s striking striped and chequered works act as “sounding boards for the soul”. On top of their aesthetic qualities, they have made Scully one of the world’s most saleable artists, one whose works are hung everywhere from New York to Shanghai. Not bad for a lad who experienced a tough upbringing, first in Dublin then pre-gentrification Islington, which he recounts here. Gwilym Mumford

Britain’s Got Talent

7.15pm, ITV

The variety contest returns, but the focus in this opener will be less on sword swallowers and wannabe Susan Boyles and more on the men behind the curtain, with Ant and Dec hosting together for the first time since the former’s rehab stint. As ever, judges Holden, Dixon, Cowell and Walliams will be doing the scrutinising. GM

The Voice UK

8.40pm, ITV

Nothing much happens to you after you win The Voice, but it is time for the remaining singers to face the final. There is a sense of occasion, with each hopeful performing a duet with their coach, before the winner drifts off into the great pop abyss. Pity the poor soul who has to match the vocal powerhouse of J-Hud. Hannah Verdier

Follow the Money

9pm, BBC Four

New series of the crime thriller set in Denmark. Nicky is laundering the money from his hash supply business through a juice bar, but news about his young son deflects his big plans. Meanwhile, police officer Alf is battling PTSD and having a secret affair. Both heroes and villains are absorbing characters. David Stubbs

Pulp: A Film About Life, Death & Supermarkets

9pm, Sky Arts

Among the Britpop lot, Pulp were always in a different class. Florian Habicht’s film documents their farewell show at Sheffield Arena in 2012 but focuses as much on fans and eccentrics as the band. It’s followed by a Brixton Academy gig from their 1995 imperial phase. Graeme Virtue

Live PD

10pm, More4

An update of that reality TV classic Cops for our 24-hour surveillance age, this series from US network A&E follows urban and rural police forces in real time as they patrol communities. It’s a mammoth three-hour affair that can shift from sedate to manic in an instant, but it’s often the more quotidian moments that feel most compelling. GM
