Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist
Channel 4, 10.00pm
Between October 2008 and August 2009, a wave of burglaries struck the Hollywood Hills. Dubbed the ‘Bling Ring’ by the press, an unlikely group of middle-class suburban teens stole over $3 million worth of cash and belongings from A-list celebrities including Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Lindsay Lohan.
As the first major crime spree of the social media age and a cautionary tale of celebrity worship, it is a story as timely as ever and ripe for a documentary series. Channel 4’s asks the Ring itself to retell it, explaining their motives and revealing where they are now.
Noughts + Crosses
BBC One, 10:40pm
Series two of Noughts + Crosses picks up from the cliffhanger of series one, which saw Sephy (Masali Baduza) and Callum (Jack Rowan) go on the run together so they could freely express their love.
With Sephy being an upper-class cross and Callum a lower-class nought, they must flee Albion in order to start a new life.
Based on the novel of the same name by Malorie Blackman, series two is set to follow the second half of the novel, but with a few surprises.
New cast members include Michael Dapaah as Mensah, a powerful TV personality who has influence that reaches right across Albion.
His co-host Chidi Abara will be played by Judi Love, with whom he has a tense relationship.
