Television What’s On
Pick of the day Anton & Giovanni’s Adventures in Sicily 9pm, BBC One Giovanni Pernice saying “Lovely jubbly!” in his thick Sicilian tones as he pours a cuppa. Anton Du Beke trying to explain what “budgie smugglers” are. Lots of Steps choreography. There are too many oddly golden moments to mention in the first episode of the dancers’ utterly charming road trip. The first stop is in Agrigento, home of the Valley of the Temples, where all that’s left to do in an empty ancient theatre is … dance. HR The Holy Land and Us: Our Untold Stories 9pm, BBC Two Rob Rinder and Sarah Agha trace their respective Jewish and Palestinian family histories in the conclusion of this strictly impartial series, marking 75 years since the establishment of the state of Israel and the Nakba that displaced Palestinian Arabs.
