If you're going to delve into the world of Ealing Comedies, a thespian is as good a guide as any.

'Brexit: A Very British Coup? 9pm, BBC Two


We'll still be feeling the effects of Brexit for decades to come, so this documentary might be a little premature. Still, it's an entertaining look at the tumultuous events of the summer, and it does throw up plenty of good soundbites.

It takes place behind the scenes of the Leave campaign, and promises to lay bare all the ambition, passion and animosity that help that side to victory. Whatever your political persuasion, this documentary is guaranteed to elicit some kind of reaction.

'Red Dwarf XI' 9pm, Dave

The eleventh series of the sci-fi comedy kicks off on Dave, with the team visiting an alternative version of 1920s America.

Prohibition is in full effect, but instead of alcohol being banned, it's technology. Only 'Red Dwarf' could imagine a past in which Albert Einstein is a wino who carries a ball of string in a trolley.
