Prince Harry: A Troubled Prince (Channel 5, 8.30pm)

DESPITE being born into enormous wealth and privilege, Prince Harry’s life has not exactly been a fairytale.

Then, as an adult, the press and the pressures of royal life have weighed heavily on Harry’s shoulders.

Diego Maradona (C4, 9pm)

FOR many Scots football fans, Diego Maradona (below) is famous for one single thing: the famous “Hand of God” goal in the 1986 World Cup quarter-final against England. The Argentine footballer was a divisive player but he was also outrageously talented, and his story off the pitch is incredibly complex. Directed by Asif Kapadia the film is constructed from more than 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from Maradona’s personal archive. The film focuses on his seven years playing for Naples in the 1980s.
