TV tonight: Maxwell, Epstein and Prince Andrew – the accusations through survivors’ voices

·2 min read

Ghislaine, Prince Andrew & the Paedophile

9pm, ITV

Jeffrey Epstein died in a prison cell in 2019 before he could face federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges – but the details of how he and his circle used wealth and power to abuse girls for years are still coming to light. In this documentary, Ranvir Singh pulls the many threads of the story together, including the truth about Ghislaine Maxwell’s involvement (ahead of her sentencing) and the disputed allegations against Prince Andrew. Singh also gives a platform to the voices of the survivors, and speaks with some of the people listed in Maxwell’s “little black book”. It promises to be a comprehensive examination of the story behind the tangled web of endless headlines. Hollie Richardson

9pm, Sky Comedy

Cancer, coercion and stranger danger all feature in the latest double bill of the Y2K-set coming-of-age comedy with a visual twist (grownup creators Anna Konkle and Maya Erskine play teen versions of themselves). If that sounds pretty heavy, the show continues to be adept at balancing emotional rawness with warmth and wit. Graeme Virtue

Memory Box: Echoes of 9/11

9pm, Sky Documentaries

After 9/11, a recording booth was set up for survivors and eyewitnesses to recall memories of the day’s events. Twenty years on, this remarkable documentary uncovers that footage and catches up with participants. Film-makers David Belton and Bjørn Johnson are careful to balance the inevitable horror with hope and resilience. Henry Wong

Toast of Tinseltown

10pm, BBC Two

Matt Berry’s magnificently tactless, rude and self-regarding thesp Steven Toast continues on his unlikely mission to break America. Tonight, his wildly declamatory performance style seems to have found a natural home in a film by director Weech Beacon. But will his embryonic relationship with sexologist Shepherd Gerbil get in the way? Phil Harrison
