black and british 2

Two hard-hitting documentaries and a bit of light relief, if you're not already sick of the US election.

'Britain's Adoption Scandal: Breaking the Silence'

9pm, ITV

This Exposure documentary tells the stories of thousands of women pressured by the Church and state to give their babies up for adoption in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. These women now break their silence, telling how they were made to feel ashamed, as if they had done something wrong by giving birth. A harrowing sign of the times.

'Black and British: A Forgotten History'

9pm, BBC Two

British-Nigerian historian David Olusoga explodes the myth that Britain is somehow indigenously white. In the first episode, he visits Cumbria and East Sussex, both of which bear evidence that people of African origin lived there during Roman times.

Indeed, it remained the case during the Tudor and Georgian eras. The four-part series is part of the Black and British season on the BBC.  'The Last Leg: A US Election Special'

10pm, Channel 4

The usual trio of Adam Hills, Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe pick through the wreckage of the recent US election.

They'll be joined by celebrity guests in a bid to make sense of the events of last night. As ever, it's recorded live, so anything could happen.
