9pm, Channel 4

The travel enthusiast is halfway through his adventure across the Great White North, taking the most scenic route possible.

Noel Edmonds: The Rise & Fall of Mr Saturday Night

9pm, Channel 5

The face of Saturday night TV in the 90s, Edmonds had worked his way up from Radio Luxembourg to Noel’s House Party – and had brought Mr Blobby into our lives. This documentary remembers what happened in between that period and his return to screen with Deal or No Deal in 2005. HR

State of Happiness

9pm, BBC Four

The money’s still coming in, but the time for disco-dancing is over in tonight’s double bill of the 70s-set Norwegian oil boom drama. As the search gets under way for missing Marius, Anna’s secrets are being revealed. Meanwhile, she and Christian are busy uncovering industry secrets, with far graver consequences. Ellen E Jones


9pm, Sky Sci-Fi

Prepare for the heebie-jeebies, as tonight’s episode contains bloodied wedding cakes and grannies delivering dark omens. Suspecting best friend Priya’s pre-wedding jitters to be a full-blown curse on her bridal corset (they can be perilous at the best of times), Susan turns to Luke for help, with signs pointing to a paternal haunting.

The Secrets She Keeps

9.20pm, BBC One

The strewth will out as season two of the swanky Aussie psychological thriller continues.

Meanwhile, things start to get very Prisoner: Cell Block H for banged-up villain Agatha. Graeme Virtue

Film choice

Samaritan, Prime Video

Granite City is, not unlike Batman’s Gotham, a disaster area of poverty and crime. For 13-year-old Sam (Javon “Wanna” Walton), superhero Samaritan could be the man to fix it all, even though he apparently died years ago in an explosion with his evil brother Nemesis. Could his loner neighbour Joe (Sylvester Stallone) secretly be his idol? Julius Avery’s film employs its action sparingly – more Luke Cage than Dark Knight – but it’s always fun to see Sly flex his muscles and grunt out his lines, and Pilou Asbæk keeps his crime boss Cyrus to naturalistic levels of badness.

Days of Heaven, 9.55pm, Sky Cinema Greats

Before a 20-year hiatus from film-making, Terrence Malick created his masterwork, a ravishingly shot tale of tangled romance in 1916 rural Texas. Richard Gere’s labourer Bill realises the ailing landowner (Sam Shepard) has fallen for his lover Abby, who is posing as his sister, and sees the opportunity for a better life in promoting their union – but soon regrets his plan. Malick’s trademarks are all here – elliptical drama, elegiac voiceover, a sensitivity to the seasons and the natural world – in a landscape that glows with “magic hour” light. SW
