TV tonight: comic disaster in a country house convertible | TV & radio



The show that goes wrong

8:30 p.m., BBC One

A welcome return for the heroically over-ambitious Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, whose ill-conceived genre pieces, chewy landscape performances and internal power struggles create perfectly calibrated chaos. Tonight, they attempt a country house drama. But Robert is in charge and wants everyone to do things their own way. The overall effect is both gently comedic and strangely experimental; like an avant-garde theater group joyfully parodying light clichés. Very funny. Phil harrison

Gordon, Gino and Fred become Greek!

9 p.m., ITV

The boisterous kitchen and travel show returns with Ramsay, D’Acampo and Sirieix hopping in their campervan and frolicking through Greece. They start in Crete, baking and diving for lobsters. It’s stereotypical but quite enjoyable if you can handle the alpha males’ jousting. PH

24 hours in police custody

9 p.m., Canal 4

When a man is caught on CCTV committing a horrific assault, the police go blank. But what about when the images are shared on Facebook? PH

Alma is not normal

10 p.m., BBC Two

Life searches for Alma when she discovers the Bolton Theater School as the escort business is booming. And when a beautiful customer with a penchant for champagne makes a new reservation, it looks like she’s put her own Richard Gere in a bag. His fate is dark but comes with a burst of comedy.
