TV tonight: Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock on British racism

·3-min read

Leigh-Anne: Race, Pop & Power

9pm, BBC One

As a member of perhaps the biggest girl group in the world, Little Mix, singer Leigh-Anne Pinnock is uniquely placed to discuss the pressures and attendant racism that come from being one of the most recognisable women of colour in the UK. In this confronting documentary, Pinnock examines Britain’s systemic racism and speaks to fellow pop stars including Alexandra Burke, Nao and Keisha Buchanan from the Sugababes, who recount their own experiences of racial abuse.

Gardening With Carol Klein

7pm, Channel 5

Klein continues to offer horticultural tips from the placid environs of her Devon cottage and its surrounding greenery. This week she is feeding and protecting bees, while creating an outlandish floral display. Plus, she delves into the world of 19th-century auricula theatres and small alpine troughs. Jack Seale

Dragons’ Den
8pm, BBC One

Another round of nervy pitching in the socially distanced Den as would-be tycoons field vexing questions about their blue-sky business plans. The gadgets and gimmicks on parade this week include a timely nose filter, a nifty beach product and a whisky concept that wisely does not stint on the free samples. Graeme Virtue

Frank of Ireland

Elephant (Gus van Sant, 2003) 10.10pm, Sky Atlantic
Inspired by Alan Clarke’s bravura 1989 short drama depicting 18 killings in Northern Ireland, Gus Van Sant dispassionately follows events at a US high school, while two teenage boys prepare and carry out a mass shooting. The Columbine-style attack is even more chilling for being so matter-of-factly filmed. Simon Wardell
