Secret World Of Sound With David Attenborough

Sky Nature/Showcase, 8pm

Secret World of Sound

Sound takes centre-stage in this series, which explores how animals hear and produce sound, and how it influences their lives. High-definition cameras and cutting-edge audio technology reveal a new understanding of animal behaviour. Eavesdrop on lions and hyenas battling in the dark using noise, explore how an odd fish baffled residents with its eerie hum, and how starlings have mastered the art of mimicry to remarkable effect.



ITV2, 10pm


Liverpool in all its funny, sweary glory as we follow a group of ordinary kids navigating school while tackling big issues, like grief, sex, diversity and class. Tonight, new boy Christopher (Jake Kenny-Bryne) is a bit of a fish out of water on his first day in school.

The Mighty Mississippi With Nick Knowles

It’s less planes, trains and automobiles and more Harleys, helicopters and heart-stopping moments – like throwing the first pitch at a ceremonial baseball game – as Nick wends his way along the Mississippi River exploring the Deep South. And when he’s not tasting authentic Lakota fare, he’s water-skiing, exploring celebrated local author Mark Twain, or taking a sobering look at the river’s long and agonising links to slavery.


Eurovision: Graham Meets Olly, followed by The Big Eurovision Party

BBC1, 10.40pm and BBC1, 10.55pm

Lots of Eurovision stuff around today and the contest isn’t even on until May. Tonight, Graham Norton, our Mr Eurovision, meets the man who’ll be representing us in Malmö, Sweden, this year, and on whom all UK hopes are pinned – Olly Alexander. Last year was a washout for the UK after Sam Ryder had done so well the year before, so maybe this universally popular popinjay can bring home the bacon? Let’s see…

And then, hardcore Eurovision aficionados will love the nostalgia on offer tonight, as some famous names celebrate the contest’s legacy by giving us an encore of their classic songs. Among those performing from the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam are Austrian drag queen Conchita Wurst, who tasted triumph in 2014 with the dramatic Rise Like A Phoenix. Meanwhile, Rylan Clark is on hand to interview the stars backstage.
