Joanna Lumley and the Human Swan

9pm, ITV

All hail our husky-voiced national treasure, whose wide-eyed enthusiasm for meeting “the human swan” – AKA paramotorist and conservationist Sacha Dench – is the reason for that warm, fuzzy feeling growing deep within as you watch. Dench proves herself to be equally iconic, zipping around Britain, encouraging people to tackle the climate crisis. As Lumley joins her (behold: she takes flight at one point) they encounter climate threats and the good people fighting against them. Wholesome content. Hollie Richardson

The Political Slot

7.55pm, Channel 4

A week of brief but punchy state-of-the-nation political pronouncements from representatives of all Britain’s big parties.

Tomorrow, Labour’s Bridget Phillipson on the party’s ideas for the post-Covid, post-Brexit economy. Phil Harrison

The Outlaws

9pm, BBC One

Succession

9pm, Sky Atlantic

With sibling rivalry intensifying, Kendall’s behaviour is becoming more erratic (one TV host describes it as “a severe case of what doctors call caucasian rich brain”). Meanwhile, Logan summons his arsenal as the FBI closes in on Waystar, and Tom makes him a potentially life-altering offer. HR

Frankie Boyle’s New World Order
