TV tonight: Jamie Oliver returns with five essential ‘hero’ ingredients | Television


Jamie’s Five Ingredient Meals

8 p.m., Channel 4

Even though Jamie Oliver’s presentation style isn’t to everyone’s taste, he remains an inventive culinary problem solver. In this new series, he creates a series of dishes that do a great job of, as he insists, “putting everyday ingredients into heroes.” These sound like hacks you could actually use – for example, a brilliant technique for crisping chicken thighs that’s so simple you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of it first.

Panorama: defying Putin – Moscow and the mutiny

8 p.m., BBC One

Predictably, it didn’t take long for Yevgeny Prigozhin to have an unfortunate accident following his challenge to Vladimir Putin’s authority in June. In this documentary, Jane Corbin looks back on this incident and wonders if there were long-term consequences for the Russian president. PH

Scarlett Driving School

8:30 p.m., BBC One

After 13 years of learning to drive, Adeola is desperate to pass her test – and her patient cheerleader sister, Ronke Jane, is also keeping her fingers crossed. Hitting the pavement, struggling to find roundabouts and panicking on steep inclines are major challenges along the way. Meanwhile, Scarlett attempts an emergency stop. Hannah Verdier

The balance sheet

9 p.m., BBC One

Jimmy Savile – played with chilling accuracy by Steve Coogan – was able to continue his crimes largely thanks to the protection of his employer, the national broadcaster. In this episode, the aptly named BBC One drama arrives at the height of Savile’s fame, hosting Jim’ll Fix It on, you guessed it, BBC One. Ellen E Jones

Union with David Olusoga

9 p.m., BBC Two

Insurrection is in the air as David Olusoga’s historical series continues. Olusoga is brilliant at bringing dusty files to life: this week, he explores army demobilization papers following the Napoleonic Wars. The sad individual stories behind this apparent triumph explain what followed: Chartism: the first mass movement driven by the working classes. PH

The long shadow

9 p.m., ITV1

The strength of this grimly important series lies in its convincing assertion that Peter Sutcliffe’s crimes were, in the context of their times, essentially the extreme version of universally toxic male attitudes toward women. Another woman survives an attack – but can David Morrissey’s arrogant ACC George Oldfield make anything stick? PH

Summer of the Soul (Questlove, 2021), 10 p.m., Channel 4
In the summer of 1969, while Woodstock was making headlines, the Harlem Cultural Festival was taking place in New York, featuring a stunning lineup of black musical talent. Questlove has collected hours of footage from this long-neglected event into a stunning documentary. Stevie Wonder, the Staple Singers, Mahalia Jackson, Sly and the Family Stone and force of nature Nina Simone are some of the stars performing at their best in front of a packed family crowd. The context is given by the performers and audience members, but the music does the work on its own. Simon Wardell
