British Academy Television Awards 2020 (BBC1, 7pm)

WITH help from the BBC’s IT crowd, Richard Ayoade will host the socially distant ceremony from a closed studio, two months after the event was due to take place. Lee Mack could win another Bafta for his work on Would I Lie To You? The Crown is up for yet another plaudit as Best Drama Series; jet black comedy drama The End of the F***ing World returned for a stunning (nominated) second run, and nominee Naomi Ackie helped breathe new life into the mini-series. Given the return of Fleabag, it’s hardly surprising the show’s creator, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, is up for Best Actress, along with Sian Clifford as her screen sister.

The Gadget Show (C5, 7pm)

IT’S a nightmare that millions of people with lawns face: an unruly power cable that has an unwelcome meeting with the mower. One answer is a battery-powered lawnmower, but which is the best on the market? Jon Bentley tests out three on a Ryder Cup course to find out which is a fair way ahead of the others. In the States, Georgie Barrat takes a ride in the world’s most advanced autonomous car allowed on public roads. Plus, Craig Charles kits out his smart home with a multi-room music system.

Travel Man’s Greatest Trips: Out and About (C4, 8pm)

NEW series. Richard Ayoade raids the Travel Man archive to look back on some of his greatest trips. In this episode, he presides over a selection of the finest adventures from more than 40 mini-breaks, beginning with a tour of Vienna in miniature hot rods with Chris O’Dowd, before jetting off to Dubai with comedian Johnny Vegas to scale the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

Jack Whitehall’s Sporting Nation (BBC1, 8.30pm)

WHITEHALL continues his light-hearted look back at Britain’s sporting history, telling the nation’s story through its most iconic moments and characters. Here, he examines how class is woven into the DNA of British sport and how breaking its social boundaries can lead to incredible drama. The focus is on the fierce athletic rivalry of Sebastian Coe and Steve Ovett, Fred Perry taking on the Wimbledon establishment and Andrew Flintoff destroying the Australians at the 2005 Ashes.
