Our Next Prime Minister
BBC One, 9pm
With the end of Boris Johnson’s tenure as Prime Minister, a new conservative leader will need to be chosen to lead the country.
The two candidates vying for the top spot are former Chancellor Rishi Sunak and former Foreign Secretary Liz Truss.
The pair will engage in a live TV debate from Stoke-on-Trent presented by Sophie Raworth. The debate will see them set out their reasons for why they should be the next Conservative Party leader and Prime Minister.
This will kick off a summer of fierce campaigning to win over Conservative Party members.
Under the Banner of Heaven
Jon Krakauer’s original book was a cautionary real life story of blind faith, juxtaposing the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with the 1984 murder of a Mormon mother and her baby daughter in the name of God.
Hulu have taken the bleak material and dramatized it, starring Andrew Garfield as the police detective Jeb Pyre whose own faith is tested when investigating the case. Daisy Edgar-Jones stars as the mother in question, Brenda Lafferty.
Writer Andy Siara won plaudits for his debut feature film, Palm Springs, an irreverent take on Groundhog Day starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti. The Resort sees him reunite with Milioti for another mystery-comedy, starring her alongside William Jackson Harper (The Good Place) as a couple vacationing at a resort in the Mayan Riviera.
The trip is meant to be a special 10th anniversary celebration, but their marriage is put to the test when they find themselves embroiled in one of Yucatan’s strangest unsolved mysteries from 15 years ago: the disappearance of two young adults, a murder and a once in a century hurricane. The revered creator of Mr Robot, Sam Esmail, directed the series.
Channel 4, 9pm

England v Germany, MOTD Live: UEFA Women's Euro 2022 Final
BBC One, 3.50pm
Bar a nervy quarter-final against Spain, so far the Lionesses have made it look easy. They stormed Group A with a perfect record, bagging 14 goals and conceding none, and this week’s semi-final saw them rout many people’s pre-tournament favourites, Sweden.
Now they face old foes Germany at Wembley, who beat them in the final of Euro 2009. Still seeking their first ever major trophy, they are one step away from wreaking revenge and making history on home turf.
