TV Tonight: The Inside Story of The Hacienda
The Haçienda: The Club That Shook Britain
10.15pm, BBC Two
“It was like a spaceship landing in this grey city,” says DJ Mike Pickering of the Haçienda in this immersive ode to the Manchester club. (He also claims he had no part in booking Bernard Manning, who apparently left shouting: “Keep the money, you’ll need it for this shithole.”) Colourfully charting its evolution and legacy, the documentary is rounded off with talking heads including New Order’s Peter Hook and Stephen Morris, Aniff Akinola, Shaun Ryder, club-goers and staff (who weren’t impressed by Madonna’s visit).

Huge Homes With Hugh Dennis
4.30pm, Channel 4
A new series that feels both inappropriate and fascinating in the context of the cost of living crisis. What’s it like living in a massive house? Tonight, Hugh Dennis visits a converted tower in Surrey, a fort in Wales and a castle in Scotland and asks the burning question: how on earth do you heat this place? Phil Harrison

Queens for the Night
EastEnders’ Ian Beale, Corrie’s Steve McDonald and Mr Motivator as drag queens? This might be the new Saturday talent contest you didn’t know you wanted. Mel C, Rob Beckett, Courtney Act and Layton Williams make the judging panel. And if that wasn’t enough, Lorraine Kelly is your host. HR
9pm, BBC Four
Season two of The Scandi Drama That Has Carrie-Anne Moss In It concludes with a strong double bill. After some high-peril thrills, a well-judged finale based on emerging secrets and a recurring motif about the aftermath of war contains one last cracking twist. Jack Seale
Arctic Monkeys at Later … With Jools Holland
9.30pm, BBC Two
Something to make millennials feel ancient: the Arctics debuted on Later 17 years ago. Anyway, Holland dedicates tonight to Sheffield’s finest. They’ll be playing songs from their new album, The Car, and talking to Jools too. HR
Manchester-by-the-Sea (Kenneth Lonergan, 2016), 12.05am, BBC Two
Kenneth Lonergan doesn’t make many films – this work is only his third to date – but they are always worth the wait. His 2016 drama also takes its time but the emotional payoff is immense as it follows janitor Lee (an Oscar-winning Casey Affleck), returning to his titular home town after his brother’s death to look after his nephew Patrick (Lucas Hedges). Revelations about his former life with ex-wife Randi (Michelle Williams, as affecting as ever) are eked out, while we watch Lee struggling with a past that threatens to overwhelm him. Simon Wardell
