Our choice of programmes to watch week beginning Saturday, August 22

On Demand: Trinkets (Netflix, from Tuesday) The first series of this teen drama, based on the novel by Kirsten Smith, introduced viewers to Elodie, Moe and Tabitha (played by Brianna Hildebrand, Kiana Madeira and Quintessa Swindell), three young and very different high school students who became friends after attending the same Shoplifters Anonymous meeting.

However, while in class, they ignore each other, keeping their relationship a secret, but maintain a close bond that helps them deal with various problems. The first run ended in dramatic fashion, so fans will be pleased to see the show is coming back, although unfortunately, the second series will be its last. Plot-wise, we’ve been promised loose ends will be tied up, so at least there should be a satisfying finale to the tale.

SATURDAY: The Voice Kids (ITV, 7.25pm)

Emma Willis hosts the semi-final of the junior talent contest. At the end of the Battle Rounds, each of the four judges has selected three acts to stay in the contest. These 12 solo singers and double acts must now give it their all for the chance to be their mentor’s choice for next week’s grand final, and get the chance to win a £30,000 bursary towards their musical education and a family holiday to Universal Orlando Resort.

Sean Connery: In His Own Words (BBC2, Regions Vary) A fictional London casino, Le Cercle. Men in tuxedos and beautiful woman in red. A game of Chemin-de-fer leads to a tense exchange. And then the immortal line: “Bond, James Bond.”

From the moment he uttered those that iconic words with measured nonchalance in Dr No in 1962, many people have considered Sir Sean Connery to be the quintessential 007.

To celebrate his 90th birthday on Tuesday, the BBC is dedicating a night to the Scottish actor, beginning with another chance to see Sean Connery: In His Own Words, as friends and actors pay tribute to Connery in a programme to mark his 85th birthday in 2015.

George V: The Tyrant King (C5, 9.00pm) Behind his brother, Prince Albert Victor, in line to the throne, the unpromising George V initially sought a career in the British Navy, but his sibling’s untimely death from flu placed him on the throne.

He married his brother’s fiancee Mary, and subsequently the stern, stamp-collecting Victorian-age conservative ended up becoming an unlikely moderniser. This profile examines the secrets and speculation that surrounded the life of the king who reigned from 1910 to 1936 and took Britain into the First World War.

Rillington Place (Drama, 9pm) Another chance to see the three-part drama, first shown on the BBC in 2016, about the real-life case of serial killer John ‘Reg’ Christie, and the subsequent wrongful execution of Timothy Evans. The show is based on the notorious murders in Notting Hill in the 1940s and 50s and told from three different perspectives. Tonight, Ethel Christie (Samantha Morton) reunites with her husband Reg (Tim Roth) following a separation, but the fractures in their relationship soon reappear.

Over the course of the next six weeks, the duo will be casting off at some of the most picturesque angling spots in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, putting the world to rights, eating heart-healthy food and yes, even catching a fish or two along the way.

Harry Hill’s World of TV (BBC2, 8.30pm) Oh how we miss Harry Hill’s TV Burp. It was a shining light in a sea of mediocrity, never failing to brighten our mood thanks to its mix of surreal sketches and hilarious observations inspired by the previous week’s shows. Unfortunately, it’s not coming back any time soon, but the big-collared funnyman is returning to the small screen with a shout about, well, the small screen. It’s a six-part run in which he examines a different genre each week, explaining its key points and playing clips from memorable moments. Hill’s first focus is on soaps.

MONDAY: Inspector Morse (ITV, 8pm) Another chance to see The Remorseful Day, the final curtain call for John Thaw’s iconic TV detective. Morse is ill-prepared for retirement, and after trying his hand at bird-watching, he realises Lewis knows more about the feathered creatures than he does.
