Celebrity Trash Monsters: How Big Is Your Trash?
9 p.m., Canal 4
As the Cop26 climate change summit approaches, television is taking a variety of constructive and sober approaches to exploring aspects of the climate crisis. But then there’s this: a baryan-sounding challenge show that combines upcycling and fame to an absurd, albeit well-intentioned, effect. Jon Richardson has a challenge for John Barnes, Jodie Kidd and Kerry Katona: they have to carry the things found in their trash cans. Spot the ever-expanding waste combinations as the trio’s consumption of ready-made meals and single-use plastics is revealed. Phil harrison

The 1968 Summer Olympics produced one of the defining images of the civil rights movement, when African-American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised their gloved fists in a Black Power salute on the winner’s podium; next to them was silver medalist Peter Norman, a white Australian who had been anything but a passive spectator. This film tells their story. Ali catterall

Armando Iannucci brings his look at the absurdity of the policy on the Soviet Union in 1953 in his frenzied comedy, although the evils of the dictatorship give it the darker edges. When Stalin suddenly dies, the intimidated Central Committee is plunged into panic, with Secret Police Chief Beria (a delightfully devious Simon Russell Beale) and Councilor Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi) scrambling for the succession. A fine cast delivers the wasp-like dialogue with relish – especially Jason Isaacs as the outspoken General Zhukov – as the veneer of Stalin-imposed stability is erased. Simon wardell
