people v oj simpson

True American crime, cutting-edge satire and a top conservative politician make up this evening's viewing.

Boris: The London Years 7:30pm, BBC One

BoJo is one of the most high-profile politicians in the country, and one of the best-known campaigners for Britain to leave the EU. This film looks at his eight years as Mayor of London, and what changes he has brought about for the capital city. He is one of the favourites to be Prime Minister one day, so London's state could be a good indicator as to how he'll do if handed the country's reigns.

The People v OJ Simpson 9pm, BBC Two

Episode five of 10 of this real-life crime drama is titled The Race Card. It sees defence lawyer Johnnie Cochran employ all sorts of tactics to defend OJ, including mind games, and how he presents Simpson's life story. It's way too cheesy at times, and John Travolta's starting to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger (the less said about David Schwimmer's hair the better). But it's compelling viewing nonetheless.

Last Week Tonight With John Oliver 10pm, Sky Atlantic

Oliver has well and truly stepped out of the shadow of his former boss John Stewart with this, his very own take on the week's news. (Don't believe us? Check out his takedown of Donald Trump a couple of weeks ago, and how it inspired Marco Rubio to insult the length of Trump's fingers.) There's no word on what topics this episode will cover, but we're sure it'll be as good as ever.
