US traitors

    8 p.m., BBC 3

    If you were left begging for more of the best reality series of 2022 after a party binge, here it is – American style. Set in the same castle, with the same rules and many of the same tasks, there are only two big changes: Alan Cumming is delightfully deviant as Claudia Winkleman, and half of the contestants are American celebrities (well, the former Big Brother and Below deck stars). Sure, it can’t beat the UK one – but it’s still a cracking game to get stuck into. Hollie Richardson

    Both haunting and beautiful, this documentary narrated by Helena Bonham Carter begins with three minutes of silent footage filmed by David Kurtz in a Jewish town in Poland in 1938. Kurtz’s grandson, who found the film in 2009, helps unraveling the stories of people smiling and going about their daily lives. Most were later murdered during the Holocaust, but one of the few remaining survivors – a boy in the film – recalls his memories here. HOUR

    Beast (Michael Pearce, 2017) 10:50 p.m., Film4
    This feverish crazy love mystery from 2017 was our first indication that Jessie Buckley was a star in the making. She shines through the film as Moll, the disgruntled daughter of a wealthy Jersey family who is drawn to the dangerous Pascal (Johnny Flynn). Meanwhile, a string of girl murders has the island on edge. While Pascal may have his secrets (is he the killer?), Moll is not the devoted child his controlling mother (the tall Geraldine James) would like. Writer-director Michael Pearce next directed Riz Ahmed’s tense thriller Encounter, so there’s another one worth watching. Simon Wardel
