TV tonight: Maxwell, Epstein and Prince Andrew – the accusations through survivors’ voices

Presenter Ranvir Singh pulls many threads together. Plus Rules of the Game. Here’s what to watch this evening

Ghislaine, Prince Andrew & the Paedophile

9pm, ITV

Jeffrey Epstein died in a prison cell in 2019 before he could face federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges – but the details of how he and his circle used wealth and power to abuse girls for years are still coming to light. In this documentary, Ranvir Singh pulls the many threads of the story together, including the truth about Ghislaine Maxwell’s involvement (ahead of her sentencing) and the disputed allegations against Prince Andrew. Singh also gives a platform to the voices of the survivors, and speaks with some of the people listed in Maxwell’s “little black book”. It promises to be a comprehensive examination of the story behind the tangled web of endless headlines. Hollie Richardson

Rules of the Game

9pm, BBC One

“We’re whores if we like it and frigid if we don’t, and when we’re not desirable any more – that’s it, we’re invisible.” This challenging drama about sexual politics in the workplace continues, with Sam (Maxine Peake) recalling HR director Maya’s (Rakhee Thakrar’s) discovery of evidence that threatened the flotation of the company. HR

Junior Bake Off

5pm, Channel 4

Harry Hill delivers more wholesome teatime goodness from the Bake Off tent. This time, the young bakers are tasked with making fashion-conscious wearable biscuits, plus they need to create an edible “About Me” biscuit box that illustrates different aspects of their lives. They’ll have to impress judges Liam Charles and Ravneet Gill. HR


9pm, Sky Comedy

Cancer, coercion and stranger danger all feature in the latest double bill of the Y2K-set coming-of-age comedy with a visual twist (grownup creators Anna Konkle and Maya Erskine play teen versions of themselves). If that sounds pretty heavy, the show continues to be adept at balancing emotional rawness with warmth and wit. Graeme Virtue

Memory Box: Echoes of 9/11

9pm, Sky Documentaries

After 9/11, a recording booth was set up for survivors and eyewitnesses to recall memories of the day’s events. Twenty years on, this remarkable documentary uncovers that footage and catches up with participants. Film-makers David Belton and Bjørn Johnson are careful to balance the inevitable horror with hope and resilience. Henry Wong

Toast of Tinseltown

10pm, BBC Two

Matt Berry’s magnificently tactless, rude and self-regarding thesp Steven Toast continues on his unlikely mission to break America. Tonight, his wildly declamatory performance style seems to have found a natural home in a film by director Weech Beacon. But will his embryonic relationship with sexologist Shepherd Gerbil get in the way? Phil Harrison
