Our top daily TV programmes week beginning Saturday, May 23.

SATURDAY: Citizens of Boomtown: The Story of the Boomtown Rats (BBC2, 9.20pm)

Even though it was way back in 1985, many people probably still associate Bob Geldof with Live Aid, the charity rock concert he organised to build on the success of his Band Aid single the previous Christmas.

It's certainly not a bad thing to have at the top of your CV. The concerts did, after all, end up raising $127million for famine-stricken Africa. It even won him an honorary knighthood from the Queen. But Bob Geldof is known as a man not to mince his words and as he would no doubt be keen to tell anyone and everyone, he does have a day job too – as lead singer of punk/new wave band the Boomtown Rats.

In the year that the band released a new album, Citizens of Boomtown – their first since 1984's In the Long Grass – this documentary looks back at the story of Geldof, guitarist Garry Roberts, bassist Pete Briquette, drummer Simon Crowe, pianist Johnny Fingers and rhythm guitarist Gerry Cott, from their early days in Ireland to their chart successes and how the rest of the band felt overshadowed by Geldof's charity achievements.

The film features all four remaining members, Bob Geldof, Garry Roberts, Pete Briquette and Simon Crowe, looking back at the highs and lows of life as a Boomtown Rat, and there are insights from fellow musicians Bono, Sting, Sinead O'Connor, Blondie drummer Clem Burke, Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, Jools Holland (who co-presented music show The Tube with Bob's wife Paula Yates) and Steve Conte of the New York Dolls.

SUNDAY: Killing Eve (BBC One, 9.15pm)

If, during the last three seasons, you have been wondering why Villanelle is like she is, last week's standalone episode in which we explored her origins, should have provided a few answers.

Recently, the gloriously over-the-top assassin has, with a growing influence from Dasha (Harriet Walter), focused on furthering her career and becoming a 'Keeper'. However, Villanelle's fractious meeting with her Elton John-obsessed family in Russia has changed her outlook on life.

"With Villanelle going into her past it's like seeing her in a whole different world, with a new insight, which is really exciting," actress Jodie Comer, who plays the flamboyant killer, explains. "Everyone's being tested in different ways and it feels like a couple of the characters come to a point of realisation.

"Villanelle is very reluctant to play ball and do as she's told because if there's anything that she wants most in this series, it is her own freedom and control and not to have to play by other people's rules."

During this third series of the black comedy drama based on the novels by Luke Jennings, we've also seen the other lead character, Eve, endure plenty of grief.

In tonight's sixth episode, the former British intelligence agent is reeling after the devastating events in Poland a fortnight ago. However, she does make a breakthrough in her attempts to uncover the Twelve – and that brings her closer to Villanelle again.

Fingers crossed that will lead to another one of those showdowns, which, although are very enjoyable and emotional (think about the scene on the bus), are quite rare.

"Jodie and I don't actually spend that much time filming together so it makes the scenes between Eve and Villanelle quite powerful," says actress Sandra Oh, who plays Eve.

"Jodie and I trust each other very much and we both have our deep understanding of the characters.

"It's wonderful when you're surprised, when everyone thought the scene was about this and then something different happens between the actors."

Eve's former boss Carolyn has been understandably subdued during this series, as she has dealt with the arrival of Steve Pemberton's slimy agent Paul Bradwell as her new superior, and the loss of someone very close to her.

Tonight, as she continues her own personal investigation, Carolyn discovers vital information is being withheld by those close to her.

Fiona Shaw, who plays the MI6's Russian expert, also assures the viewers that they haven't seen the last of the big surprises in this third series.

She says: "The audience are very quick and know everything that could possibly happen but I think they're going to get something that they didn't expect this season."

Although there are only two episodes left after this, fans of the show can rest easy knowing Killing Eve has already been commissioned for a fourth series.

MONDAY: Normal People (BBC1, 9pm)

Can it be only four weeks since the story of Marianne and Connell began on BBC One? It seems these star-crossed lovers have been in our lives for much longer (although for anyone who has already watched the full show on BBC Three, then that's true).

Based on the bestseller by Sally Rooney, Normal People follows the relationship between two young people from a small town in the west of Ireland. Connell is the good-looking athletic student who everyone wants to be. Marianne is the intimidating loner who actively avoids others and questions authority.

Back in episode one, the two came into each other's orbit through their mothers (one works at the other's house) and soon, a deep connection had grown between the teenagers – one that they could not stop but they were determined to conceal from others.

However, that was back then. In the present, the pair have moved on to college. Marianne is on a student exchange programme in Sweden for a year and while her break-up with Jamie has cost her some friends, she is still in touch with Connell and Joanna. Word of her sex life with photographer Lukas makes its way back to Dublin, and when Connell bumps into Peggy at a party, she asks him about the gossip and whether things were like that with him and Marianne.

The drama has proved a big success for the BBC – but then it has a pretty good pedigree. It is directed by Hettie Macdonald (whose credits include Beautiful Thing, Doctor Who and the TV version of Howards End) and Lenny Abrahamson (who won an Oscar nomination for 2015 Brie Larson movie Room).

TUESDAY: Bake Off: The Professionals (Channel 4, 8pm)

At the moment, escaping to the cosy, cake-filled world of The Great British Bake Off seems more inviting than ever, but it could be a while before we get to experience it again.

It's been reported that the new series may be delayed by coronavirus. A spokesperson said: "We continue to monitor the situation and follow the advice of Public Health England and we will delay filming on Bake Off until it is safe to proceed."

But while we wait to find out how the latest batch of amateur bakers – and new presenter Matt Lucas, who has been recruited to replace Sandi Toksvig – get on, there is a new run of Bake Off: The Professionals to tide us over.

Admittedly, this series, which as the title suggests, sees professional pastry chefs battling it out rather than gifted home bakers, has never caught viewers the public's imagination to quite the same extent as the original. When it launched on BBC2 under the title Bake Off: Creme de la Creme, it was arguably hampered by a complicated scoring system and too many contestants.

However, if you haven't given the new incarnation on Channel 4 a chance yet, this may be the time to check it out. Comedian Tom Allen, who was recruited to co-host alongside former Bake Off contestant Liam Charles, believes that it definitely has the same spirit as the GBBO.

Speaking ahead of his first series, he said: "It's a heightened version of Bake Off, the standard is much more exacting I suppose. The teams put themselves under so much more pressure. They are doing something that they have built their whole careers and life around so there is that added element to it."

He added: "It has all of that warmth and human interest, the high falutin' patisserie side is there, but you also get to see the humour, which is a coping mechanism. I call it Bake Off's bitchy older sister who has been away at university and comes back with a lot of knowledge and a bit of attitude. Passions run high. It's got that added edge and drama to it."

The drama begins tonight, as six new teams from top hotels, restaurants and small businesses return, ready to find out which of them are the best patisserie chefs in Britain.

WEDNESDAY: Britain's Unsung Heroes (Channel 4, 9pm)

On May 10, Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed the nation to announce that the message in England was changing from stay at home to stay alert – and included an update for many of the nation's workers.

He said: "We said that you should work from home if you can, and only go to work if you must. We now need to stress that anyone who can't work from home, for instance those in construction or manufacturing, should be actively encouraged to go to work."

It was a speech that got a mixed reception, to say the least, but the Channel 4 documentary Unsung Heroes is here to remind us that some people were still going into work to carry out vital roles, even before there was any talk of easing the lockdown.

Understandably, much of the attention has been focused on our brave NHS workers. This documentary is turning its attention to some of the other people who have been doing their bit. They include refuse collectors, bus drivers, carers, cleaners, supermarket staff and teachers, along with many others.

They have been putting their lives at risk to keep the country fed, clean and moving, or to care for other key workers' children so they can continue doing their jobs.

And while it may sometimes seem easy to take some of them for granted, without them life would have been very different and a lot more difficult over the past few weeks.

THURSDAY: Football, Prince William and Our Mental Health (BBC One, 9pm)

Suicide is the single biggest killer of men aged under 45 in the UK, and, in 2018, three-quarters of all UK suicides were male.

These are shocking statistics, and one person who feels it doesn't have to be that way, is our future king, Prince William.

An ardent champion of mental-health causes, the Duke of Cambridge has agreed to appear in this documentary, which was made by Gary Lineker's production outfit Goalhanger Films and commissioned by the BBC to tie in with Mental Health Awareness Week (18-24 May).

Football, Prince William and Our Mental Health follows the royal as he meets players, fans and managers from all levels of the sport.

Former England goalkeeper Joe Hart talks about how he has been forced to cope with a very public decline in form, while ex-Premier League footballer Marvin Sordell opens up about his struggles with depression.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard compares today's attitudes to mental health with how they used to be when he was a young player.

And, as well as these stars, the programme will also shine a light on a group of bereaved fathers who have found their local football team to be a network of support in their time of hardship.

FRIDAY: Joe Lycett's Got Your Back (Channel 4, 8pm)

When comedian Joe Lycett entered into a correspondence with a council over a parking fine, he couldn't have guessed it would lead to a whole new career. Or perhaps he could.

The stand-up, who can also currently be found hosting The Great British Sewing Bee on BBC1, jokes: "My grand plan was to get a parking fine in York, contest it with a series of increasingly absurd emails, perform it on Cats Does Countdown and use its success to convince Channel 4 to give me a consumer show. It worked."

But even if it was a happy accident, over the course of two series of Joe Lycett's Got Your Back, he has discovered that his approach to championing consumer rights gets results. Joe says: "At first, I thought it was just fun to make a funny version of Watchdog, but it's become apparent with some of the stories that using humour is actually really effective in getting companies to listen up and change their ways.

"It's a bit embarrassing for a company to be exposed for wrongdoing, but it's really embarrassing if it's done by making them the butt of a joke."

Perhaps Joe's method of dealing with companies may be partly down to the fact that he doesn't really like confrontation, although he says it's something he's getting better at.

He explains: "I'm so British and polite that creating a scene or being confrontational is so not my vibe. But [sidekick] Mark Silcox said to me that you basically have to suspend reality on this show, and I've found that really helpful. As the series goes on, I think I get more courageous. But I still find it absolutely terrifying!"

So, it's good that he's got Mark and some celebrity helpers to share the load. As anyone who has been watching this second series, which is now up to its eighth episode, will know, the line-up is certainly eclectic.

As Joe says: "We've got amazing comics like Katherine Ryan, Lucy Beaumont and Rosie Jones, plus some classic television legends like Anneka Rice and Mr Motivator, and then cameos from people like Alan Sugar and Uri Geller. It's like a mad dinner party."

This week, he's joined by Alison Hammond who will be helping him find out if an online review site is as trustworthy as it seems.

Joe also takes aim at a paintballing company's dubious practices and recruits help from a mini-me to take on Google Play Store. And Mark puts high-street bags for life to the test.
