Our choice of programmes to watch week beginning Saturday, February 27.

ON DEMAND: Back to the 90s Collection (BritBox, from Thursday)

For those of us who remember the decade well, were the programmes available for us to watch any better? To answer that question, make sure you stream this new boxset, which contains some key classics from the era. Among the highlights are all six seasons of the delicious newsroom comedy Drop the Dead Donkey, Alan Bleasdale's wonderful drama GBH, which stars Robert Lindsay and Michael Palin, Hamish Macbeth, which turned Robert Carlyle into a star, and episodes from children's TV adventure Jungle Run, Nightmare and the original run of The Crystal Maze.

SATURDAY: Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway (ITV, 7pm)

The duo were like a little ray of sunshine when they reappeared on our screens last week with the first of a new run of their much-loved show. Thankfully, the fun is all set to continue this Saturday because the Pandas are back - we'll get to see them trying to escape from the famous Hamleys toy shop in London. Andi Peters is also in action, while Gordon Ramsay is the latest celebrity to act as the star guest announcer. Plus, there's another chance to Win the Ads and the Takeaway Rainbow is hitting the road again.

Man in Room 301 (BBC4, 9pm)

Repeats of Inspector Montalbano are all well and good, but after the emotional trauma of the last-ever series of French thriller Spiral, crime drama fans need something new to get their teeth into. Thankfully, BBC Four is about to oblige. For the first time ever it's airing a Finnish series, albeit one written by a Brit – Kate Ashfield, who is best known for her acting duties in Shaun of the Dead and Sanditon. The focus is on the Kurtti family, whose lives are torn apart by the fatal shooting of their two-year-old son Tommi. Matters take a disturbing team 12 years later when, during a holiday in Greece, they spot a man who looks just like the killer.

SUNDAY: McDonald & Dodds (ITV, 8pm)

If you needed proof of how likeable or popular this odd-couple murder mystery is, then look no further than the calibre of guest stars appearing in the second season's first episode. Rupert Graves, Martin Kemp, Patsy Kensit and Cathy Tyson play Gordon, Mick, Barbara and Jackie -a quartet of friends who achieved notoriety in the 1980s. They become the chief suspects after a hot-air balloon trip ends in murder. Meanwhile, Rob Brydon co-stars as the jobsworth Roy Gilbert from the Air Incident Investigation Agency. It's his job to help the eponymous Bath detectives (Tala Gouveia and Jason Watkins) with their investigation, as they struggle to untangle a complex web of lies spanning 30 years.

Bloodlands (BBC1, 9pm)

It became clear early on in last week's opener that DCI Tom Brannick (James Nesbitt) has a pretty sizeable score to settle. Tonight, he continues the hunt for legendary assassin Goliath, despite police protocol not letting him near the island investigation. Instead, Tom attempts to solve the recent kidnapping case, and with the help of Birdy (Chris Walley), he is soon in perilous pursuit of a possible connection to the crime. But is it Goliath they are hunting, or someone making a false trail?

MONDAY: My Unique B&B (BBC2, 6.30pm)

In recent years, the number of Brits renting out their spare space has almost doubled. Research shows that the quirkier and more outdoorsy the better; Brits are tired of budget chain inns and dated B&B's, and are now looking for an experience for their next weekend away. In this new series, carpenter and master tree-house designer Simon Parfett and his team help families, couples and retirees cash in on their untapped, income-generating potential by creating their own unique B&B. They begin by heading to the picturesque Wye Valley to help George and Al transform their battered old family camper van.

Max Clifford: The Fall of a Tabloid King (C4, 9pm)

For many years, he was the man to call if you had a story to sell - preferably one involving sex, politics and a hefty tabloid payout. Then PR man Max Clifford became the story. This documentary looks at the life of the master media manipulator who would plant or prevent stories that could end the careers of politicians, sportsmen and celebrities – until he was convicted of eight counts of indecent assault in 2014.

TUESDAY: Why Is Covid Killing People of Colour? (BBC1, 9pm)

Last year, it was reported that Black, Asian and minority ethnic patients were dying in disproportionate numbers from Covid-19. In this documentary, actor David Harewood tries to find out why.

DNA Family Secrets (BBC2, 9pm)

Stacey Dooley meets up with 75-year-old Bill, who was born at the end of the Second World War. His father was an African-American GI who returned to the US at the end of the war - all his son really knows about him is his name. Now, Bill is hoping that his own DNA might be the key to finding out what happened to his father and if he has any living relatives in the US.

Everest: Conquering the Death Zone (C5, 10pm)

This documentary looks at what it takes to conquer the mountain, from Howard Somervell, who in 1924 got within 300m of the summit before being forced to turn back by illness, to the successful climb by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953. It also explores the dangers facing the Sherpas who act as porters and guides to 21st-century tourists.

WEDNESDAY: The Terror (BBC2, 9pm)

In 1845, two ships under the command of Captain John Franklin set sail from Britain on an ambitious voyage to the Arctic in order to locate the fabled Northwest Passage. Three years later, they had both disappeared, with all 129 crew members presumed dead. This menacing 10-part survival horror series tells a fictionalised account of what befell the men of the HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, headed up by the religious Franklin (Ciaran Hinds) and sharp-tongued alcoholic Captain Francis Crozier (Jared Harris).

The Pandemic at No 47 (C4, 10pm)

The anniversary of the first lockdown is looming, and to mark it director Paddy Wivell is exploring the impact of isolation on his own community. The film-maker knew few of his neighbours before the pandemic, and the new restrictions made it difficult to mix with them. So, Wivell took to filming the diverse local community at a distance – through their doorways and windows. That may initially sound more sinister than sociological, but as the documentary shows, it gave him a chance to befriend people who were once strangers as they open up about their fears and anxieties, as well as some of the opportunities presented by the lockdown, and the ways in which it has made them reconsider what's important.

THURSDAY: Luxury Holidays: How to Get Away This Year (C4, 8pm)

After the grimmest of winters, many of us are desperate to go on holiday in 2021, but how, when and where do we go? Sabrina Grant investigates whether a proper break will be possible this year, looking at where we may be able to visit once restrictions are lifted. She meets families who are desperate for an escape and explores the options for taking a luxury trip both at home and abroad.

Piers Morgan's Life Stories (ITV, 9pm)

Back in 2012, Rupert Everett branded Piers Morgan "slobby", "elephantine" and "pathological" when he recalled working with him on Comic Relief Does The Apprentice. It seems the duo have now put their differences behind them, as Everett becomes the latest celebrity to join the GMB host for an intimate chat about his life and career. They will discuss the caustic comments the actor and director has made about several co-stars, including Madonna and Julia Roberts. He also talks about the promiscuous life he led in the 1970s and 1980s, the impact of the HIV/Aids crisis, and his romantic relationships with women, including TV presenter Paula Yates.

FRIDAY: Deutschland 89 (More4, 9pm)

The third and final series of the acclaimed drama begins. When the Berlin Wall falls on November 9, 1989, super spy Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay) gets caught up in a deadly chain of events. The full boxset will be made available on All 4 after the transmission of this first episode.

The Graham Norton Show (BBC1, 10.45pm)

The eagerly awaited sixth series of Line of Duty is due to start any time now, and Norton will be hoping two of its stars - Vicky McClure and Adrian Dunbar - will give him the lowdown on what to expect when they appear on tonight's programme. Daisy Ridley also promotes her sci-fi adventure Chaos Walking, Chiwetel Ejiofor waxes lyrical about romantic comedy heist Locked Down (a timely title if ever there was one) and Bryan Cranston discusses his role in the TV drama Your Honour. Plus, music comes from Imelda May.
