TV tonight: Josh Hartnett’s capitalism-crushing thriller The Fear Index

The Fear Index

9pm, Sky Atlantic

This new four-part thriller, based on the Robert Harris novel, rolls groggily out of bed with an opener that could have conveyed the necessary plot information in a quarter of the time. Josh Hartnett, always careful not to overact, is scientist-turned-hedge-fund-genius Dr Alex Hoffman, whose new algorithm might be a step too far. Cue a plot to destroy the world’s financial markets. Jack Seale

The Apprentice

9pm, BBC One

The undersung joy of this reality TV classic is the moment when Alan Sugar pays an early-morning surprise call to the contestants and catches them scruffing about in their PJs. Expect to delight in the panic of sleep-crusted business goofs, before they try to profit off the rise in staycations. Alexi Duggins

Mary Beard’s Forbidden Art

9pm, BBC Two

Controversial profiled art tonight ranges from Otto Dix’s work (banned by the Nazis) and Derek Jarman’s paintings to Tyler Shields and Kathy Griffin’s “decapitated Trump” (it earned Griffin an FBI investigation). Beard explores a range of contested culture that has spoken truth to power, or conversely, been weaponised to serve political ends. Ali Catterall

Kate Garraway’s Life Stories

9pm, ITV

In the second episode of this short but successful run with Kate Garraway in the driver’s seat, she welcomes Bake Off star, cook extraordinaire and the woman we all want round for tea, Nadiya Hussain. Ever the open book, she talks with candour about her mental health. Hollie Richardson

Who Killed Billie-Jo?

9pm, Channel 5

The 1997 murder of 13-year-old Billie-Jo Jenkins at her home in Hastings was a high-profile tragedy that became a national sensation when her foster father was charged, convicted, but then ultimately acquitted. This film re-examines the still unsolved case 25 years on, with contributions from police, lawyers and forensic scientists. Graeme Virtue

First Dates: Valentines

10pm, Channel 4

What fresh romance will be in the restaurant’s air tonight? Most notably, there’s a genuine hard luck story in the shape of 35-year-old Chris, who recently experienced the triple-whammy of redundancy, divorce and a heart attack. Surely a change of luck is overdue? PH
