TV tonight: More on-air tirades and faux pas from Alan Partridge

This Time With Alan Partridge
9.30pm, BBC One

Steve Coogan’s beloved and bumbling broadcaster Alan Partridge returns for another spoof of sedate magazine shows such as The One Show and This Morning. Accompanied by eternally patient fellow host Jennie Gresham (Susannah Fielding), the second season follows Partridge as he is now established as the show’s co-presenter but is battling behind the scenes to keep his spot amid controversies surrounding his stream of on-air tirades and faux pas.

7pm, BBC Four

It’s squeaky-bum time in the search for a new classical star, as the category winners – in strings, percussion, woodwind, brass and keyboards – face off in a 90-minute semi-final festival of twiddly excellence, delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Only three can go through to the grand final. Jack Seale

Jenny Eclair is the latest celeb to join standup Rosie Jones on her ribald tour of provincial tourist spots. The pair raise some hell on the island of Anglesey via ineffective sheep-herding and hair-raising zip-wire rides before a well-deserved nibble on some Welsh rarebit. Graeme Verdier

Britain’s Favourite 80s Songs
10pm, Channel 5

Friday night has long been retro music night on television. This series has suggested that Channel 5 might be preparing to colonise the soon-to-be-vacated territory of BBC Four. Expect Kylie and Jason, Belinda Carlisle, Bros and, perhaps, a few hints of the emergent acid house scene. Phil Harrison

The Blair Witch Project (Eduardo Sánchez, Daniel Myrick, 1999), 11.35pm, BBC One
The celebrated micro-budget horror movie that reinvented the genre. It’s the story of three film-makers – Heather Donahue, Michael Williams and Joshua Leonard – shooting a documentary in a remote Maryland wood. When night falls, things start to go bump, and an unseen horror closes in. Paul Howlett
