TV tonight: take a break from Euro 2020 and visit idyllic south-west England

The slow-paced documentary series Devon and Cornwall returns. Plus: Harry Redknapp on Big Zuu’s Big Eats. Here’s what to watch this evening

Devon and Cornwall

8pm, Channel 4

The idyllic documentary strand returns for a new batch of episodes, focused on the day-to-day lives of the locals in some of the most sought-after areas of Britain. In tonight’s opening episode, we follow Alisdair Moore, the head gardener at the Lost Gardens of Heligan in Cornwall, as he plants a wildflower meadow. Meanwhile, Tristan Northway, a fisher, livestreams his catch to his Facebook followers and the wildlife ranger Jake Chant looks after a group of wild beavers who are being reintroduced to the habitat.

24 Hours in A&E

9pm, Channel 4

The patients in the casualty department of St George’s hospital in south London are in a ruminative mood this week. A builder’s crushed finger prompts a reckoning about masculinity, while a haemophiliac’s bike accident leads to an appraisal of how the condition affects families. Plus, a 93-year-old might need a pacemaker. Jack Seale

Big Zuu’s Big Eats

10pm, Dave

The football manager Harry Redknapp has invited Big Zuu, Tubsey and Hyder to join him at his exclusive golf club in Bournemouth, but on one condition: they prepare him a slap-up meal to enjoy after his round on the course. Expect grub with a nod to Zuu’s Sierra Leonean roots. Ellen E Jones

Rick and Morty

10pm, E4

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s cult animated creation returns for a fifth season. Time-travelling super-brain Rick is still vying for his daughter Beth’s affections and reluctantly bringing his grandson Morty along for grotesque yet strangely philosophical space adventures. AK

Harley Quinn

10.30pm, E4

Who needs Batman anyway? As season two of the sweary animated comedy kicks off, the chaotic crime queen Harley (voiced by Kaley Cuoco) has neutralised Gotham’s glum dark knight and her toxic ex the Joker. But with the city in lawless ruins, other opportunistic villains are trying to muscle in. Graeme Virtue

Do Black Lives Still Matter?

10.45pm, BBC One

With the booing of the England football team for taking the knee before games having become a focal point for the culture wars, the rapper Saskilla speaks to Premier League players and coaches to find out if a generation of black players has been lost to the sport because of racism. AK
