IF your wallet can handle the stress of another streamer, Paramount+ has been here since late last month. Free for Sky Cinema customers, $7.99 a month for others.

t has a powerful new product starting today in the form of a three-part documentary Victoria’s Secret: Angels and Demons. Director Matt Tyrnauer’s series charts the decline of lingerie company risqué, a giant conglomerate in the 1990s and early 2000s battered by corporate scandals and changing attitudes. social level after the rise of MeToo.

Particular focus is on former October CEO Les Wexler’s quiet relationship with the obnoxious Jeffrey Epstein, whom Wexler has allowed access to and a great deal of control over.

James May is a little more comfortable without his eyes on Clarkson and Hammond. James May: Our man in Italy (Amazone Prime), the second season of his travel series, brings him in to sample “the most enviable lifestyle on the planet.”

After an open double bill is filled with a sense of anticipation, Black bird (Apple TV+) finally brings protagonist Jimmy Keene (Taron Egerton) face-to-face with the man he’s supposed to confess to, suspected serial killer Larry Hall (Paul Walter Hauser).

But the operation is threatened by the actions of Jimmy’s kind father (a great TV swan by Ray Liotta), who has no idea what his son is up to. A great miniseries, this one.

The Covid-19 lockdown is the best thing that can happen to nature. Documentary Nature’s big year (PBS America, 6:45 p.m.) see how wildlife thrives while spoiled creatures called humans are kept in captivity in their habitats.

Classical music lovers will be delighted because The first night of the prom (BBC2, 7.15pm) is back in full strength after two years of re-scaled concerts and limited audience. Season premieres at Royal Albert Hall with Verdi’s . complete performance pray.

Last leg (Channel 4, 10pm), which began as a nightly order for the 2012 Summer Paralympics, returns for its 25th season, with the immaculate Miriam Margolyes among the guests.

The last time she was on the show, in 2020, her comments about wanting Boris Johnson to die of cancer sparked 500 complaints against Ofcom. My guess is that 499 of them are from Nadine Dorries.

Rodrigo Lombardi and Sophie Charlotte in Passport to Freedom

Tomorrow

ALL but the most ignorant of history will recognize the name Oskar Schindler. But how many people know about a woman named Aracy de Carvalho?

Video of the day

Eight-part movie Passport to Freedom (TV series, 9 p.m.) tells the remarkable story of how from 1938 onward, Carvalho (Sophie Charlotte) used her position as a secretary in the Brazilian consulate in Hamburg to secretly help many people. Jews escape from Nazi Germany.

Carvalho’s distinguishing feature was to make it look like it was for all intents and purposes, as if she were obediently enforcing her country’s anti-Semitism policy. Rodrigo Lombardi plays the new deputy consul Joao Guimaraes Rosa, who is also horrified by what is happening and becomes her ally. The two fell in love and then got married.

Entertainment Superman and Lois (BBC1, 5.05pm & 6.05pm) returns with a double bill dipping his toes into real-world events as the Man of Steel faces an “America First” military general who manipulated supernatural beings on his side and, in an act of sacrifice, attached them to Superman’s famous Kryptonian badge.

One of the weirdest celebrity stories of recent times is how actor Jussie Smollett, who appeared in the record-breaking TV series Empirereleased a story alleging that he was attacked by racists who wore a noose around his neck, only to have it emerge that he had staged the whole thing.

Strange stunts are tested in Jussie Smollett: A Faking It Special (Discovery +), trying to make sense of Smollett, who tried to stick to his story even when the truth was discovered.

Sunday

It was a night filled with drama. Murder in Provence (UTV/ITV, 8 p.m.), based on the books by ML Longworth, follows investigative judge Antoine Verlaque (Roger Allam) and his romantic partner Marine Bonnet (Nancy Carroll) as they settle many different units. This is the first of three full-length episodes. Unfortunately, everyone speaks in their normal accent instead of using a phoney French accent.

Trip has ended, but only until the fourth part has been confirmed, for Start up Das (Atlantic sky, 9 p.m.) As U-949 embarked on its final gold delivery mission, there were emotional moments.

Croatian horror movies Four Strangers (Channel 4, 11 p.m.; all episodes on All 4) is about, you guessed it, four strangers who all find themselves involved in a violent incident that leads to death. They decide to run away on their own terms – but of course, it’s not that simple.

Have a nostalgic treat earlier on New Year’s Eve with a double bill from the classic ’60s anthology series Alfred Hitchcock Gifts (Sky Arts, 8pm & 8:30pm), presented in a sly style by the owner.
