TV tonight: Emily Atack confronts the men who harass her online

Emily Atack: Asking for It?

9pm, BBC Two

“I can’t wait to watch this, I’ll be masturbating while watching.” That’s one of the replies Emily Atack received after announcing this damning documentary about online harassment. She’s used to it, though – she woke up to 37 unsolicited “dick pics” one morning. But her mission to make cyberflashing illegal compels her to ask the question: “Am I asking for it?” While we know the answer is always no, many women will relate to Atack’s tendency to self-blame. On her nuanced journey, she contacts some of the men who harass her, speaks to the police and – most infuriatingly – hears from a group of schoolgirls who have become inured to receiving unwanted pictures from men.

Know Your S**t: Inside Our Guts

Eggy burps that are linked to stress? Fear of travelling because of a tricksy bowel? Hypnotherapy to reduce IBS symptoms?

Bradley & Barney Walsh: Breaking Dad
9pm, ITV

The Chase host and his son plough on with the fifth series of their road trip. This week’s leg of their Latin American tour takes them to Costa Rica, where they tackle a roller derby and take a sightseeing trip in a helicopter that’s not exactly to height-fearing Bradley’s tastes – it has no roof.

24 Hours in A&E

The grim subject matter of this week’s episode is needle-spiking attacks. It’s October 2021 and three female students have arrived in A&E on the same night – all potentially victims of this terrifying crime. Interspersed with treatment, Sarah and Pavni talk about the confluence of threats (spiking, Covid, racism) that have marred their university experience. Phil Harrison

The Family Pile
9.30pm, ITV

A buyer’s offer has been accepted, so the still-grieving sisters speed up the clearout of their childhood home. At least emptying Mum’s fridge-freezer provides an excuse for a family get-together – plus some dubious, past their sell-by date gags from Nicole: “So much meat! It’s like Dennis Nilsen’s wardrobe!” Ellen E Jones

Storyville: Casa Susanna
10pm, BBC Four

“If I go to Casa Susanna and find I’m more woman inside than man, that might be where the path of my new life starts.” In this exquisite Storyville documentary, Katherine Cummings (who died in 2022) is reunited with Diana Merry-Shapiro to share stories about what impact Casa Susanna – a place in the Catskills for “female impersonator shows” in the 50s and 60s – had on their lives.

Film choices

Pamela, A Love Story (Ryan White, 2023), Netflix
What a smart move by Ryan White to base his documentary about Pamela Anderson around her home movies. It shows the Playboy model turned Baywatch actor as a loved-up partner and devoted mother, and mitigates the effect of the sex tape that nearly destroyed her life. In interviews, Anderson comes across as personable and funny, while candidly discussing her childhood abuse, serial marriages to “bad boys”, and how, despite his jail sentence for spousal abuse, Tommy Lee is still the love of her life. An indomitable spirit. Simon Wardell

Servants (Ivan Ostrochovský, 2020), 2.15am, Film4
The square screen ratio and black-and-white camerawork give this tale set in communist Czechoslovakia an impressively boxed-in, oppressive feel. At a Catholic seminary in Bratislava, two new students discover their institution is both a hotbed of anti-state resistance and collaboration with the regime. From sending news reports to Radio Free Europe to presiding over secret religious gatherings, pupils and priests experience shadowy danger and whispered defiance. SW
