Billy Connolly: Made in Scotland
9pm, BBC Two
Did the Big Yin’s conversational style change the face of British comedy for ever, as this two-part special argues? Either way, the Glaswegian remains one of the funniest men alive and it’s good to see him in such fine form as he goes home to tell the story of his journey from welder to internationally feted comedian. Sentimental but never schlocky, his reflections on childhood, the shipyards of the Clyde and the drinking culture of Glasgow form a mesmerising portrait of both man and city. Mike Bradley
Take That: We’ve Come a Long Way
7pm, BBC One
Love ’em, hate ’em, there is no denying that Take That have pretty much cracked the whole pop comeback thing, what with their 2006 album Beautiful World going nine-times platinum in the UK. This one-off marks 30 years of the band, and features a rare reunion with Robbie. Hannah J Davies
Re-Play 2018 With Richard Osman
Who won Eurovision? How long have we got before the ice caps melt? And how many Tories have resigned in the past 10 minutes? Richard Osman and Scarlett Moffatt may or may not be asking four teams of celebrities these questions in a brand-new quiz on the most talked-about events of the year. Ali Catterall
The Sound of Movie Musicals With Neil Brand
9pm, BBC Four
Picking up in the 1970s, Brand brings the story of musicals up to the present day, when The Greatest Showman is quite possibly still playing at your local multiplex. Highlights here include Jeremy Deller on Tommy, and Julien Temple’s wry take on Absolute Beginners tanking at the box office. Jonathan Wright
Things may look more settled for chef Gina (Dawn French) and hotel manager Sam (Emilia Fox) as a third series of Dan Sefton’s West Country gastro-drama begins, but trouble looms in the form of a predatory silver fox who sweeps them off their feet. Cue: juicy storylines served alongside a Pandora’s box of family secrets. MB
Rob Rinder’s Good Year, Bad Year
10pm, Channel 4
Best mates with Benedict Cumberbatch and a stalwart of daytime ITV, Judge Rob Rinder has a pretty varied backstory as it goes. Now he adds Charlie Brooker-lite to the CV, too, with this year-in-review show in which he mulls over the events of 2018 with Ed Balls, Clare Balding and more. Hannah J Davies
Iron Man 2 (Jon Favreau, 2010), 6.25pm, ITV2
Uniquely among the plethora of Marvel adaptations, Iron Man tends to be more exciting when the superhero is in his civvies. The battles between the metal-clad hero and Mickey Rourke’s Russian giant Ivan Vanko are all very well, but Robert Downey Jr is inspired as the eccentric billionaire, Tony Stark. Paul Howlett
