TV tonight: an atrocious reality show in search of the next Prime Minister | Television


make me prime minister

9:15 p.m., Channel 4

This new competition, in which Alastair Campbell and Baroness Sayeeda Warsi find the UK’s alternative prime minister, is excruciating. Think The Apprentice but with budding politicians. The 12 candidates (including Zoom star Jackie Weaver) must complete tasks each week – starting with announcing a new education policy. Cue a humiliating press stunt, a heated TV debate and plenty of sarcastic comments from narrator Sue Perkins. Hollie Richardson

The Great British Bake Off

8 p.m., Channel 4

Comforting TV continues with a break from sweets for Bread Week. Can bakers, uh, measure up under the watchful eye of Paul “The Breadmaster” Hollywood? First they fall for a classic pizza, then there’s a trickier Danish sandwich cake to tackle before one of them leaves the tent for good. Hannah Verdier

In 1997, crowds flocked to see rotting cow’s heads, pickled sharks and Myra Hindley at the Royal Academy’s controversial Sensation exhibition. This thought-provoking three-part documentary celebrates contemporary art and looks back at key moments in its history, starting with the 1980s. HOUR

Storyville: And I Still Sing

9 p.m., BBC Four

For Zahra Elham and Sadiqa Madadgar, entering a TV talent show is very risky. No woman has ever won the Afghan Star, and just taking part leads to them being threatened by men on the street. Can either of them triumph? An already edgy film becomes heartbreaking when the Taliban regains control. Jack Seale

Cunk on earth

10 p.m., BBC 2

“The ironic thing about Jesus Christ becoming a carpenter is that he was actually named after the first two words you’re most likely to shout after hitting your thumb with a hammer. .” Philomena Cunk (Diane Morgan) tackles the history of religion tonight – and it may be her funniest half hour yet. HOUR

Industry

10:40 p.m., BBC One

Picking up a year after the peak of the pandemic, hedonistic Pierpoint graduates return to the sexiest and most outrageous office in London’s financial district. Harper struggles to make connections, until she befriends billionaire “Mr Pandemic” Jesse Bloom. And Yasmin enjoys her newfound sense of power a little too much. There are also a few new recruits to spice things up. HOUR

Gift (Joel Edgerton, 2015), 9 p.m., great! Movies
Actor Edgerton has proven to be gifted in writing and directing this psychological thriller. He plays Gordo, who navigates his way through the lives of a successful, old-school contemporary alpha male, Simon (Jason Bateman), and his wife, Robyn (Rebecca Hall), after they move to Los Angeles. With the eccentric Gordo’s interest in them bordering on intrusive, if not pathological, Simon is determined to keep him out, in a film that cleverly teases us with the obvious before sneaking into more interesting avenues.
