Scots keep the laughs coming today in a Two Doors Down special and Billy Connolly's documentary, while David Attenborough narrates another animal family drama.
Meerkat: A Dynasties Special
BBC One, 7.30pm
The award-winning documentary series, Dynasties, returns for another animal family drama narrated by nature’s spokesman, Sir David Attenborough.
Young meerkat queen Maghogho attempts to establish a dynasty in one of the harshest places on Earth, the Makadikadi salt pans of Botswana. So hot and dry are the pans that almost no life can survive.
For her and her family to even stand a chance, Maghogho must unite them all to face off dry seasons, dust storms and bitter rivals.
Two Doors Down Christmas Special
BBC Two, 9pm
Pandemic travel restrictions have ruined Cathy and Colin’s plans for a Christmas in Dubai, so the Two Doors Down special sees the Scots hit the Highlands for a festive staycation.
They have invited Beth, Eric, Christine, Ian and Gordon to the luxury lodge they’re renting, but Cathy - being Cathy - is a little too quick to get the party started. When she takes Gordon’s impersonation of her personally, the neighbourly bonds turn sour and they face the biggest test of their friendships yet.
Billy Connolly: It’s Been A Pleasure
A hilarious and emotional hour in the company of The Big Yin as he looks back on his remarkable comedy career following retirement from the scene two years ago.
Billy Connolly: It’s Been A Pleasure will mix Connolly’s stand-up highlights from the archive with new footage from his Florida home.
Among the famous faces paying tribute are Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Sir Lenny Henry, Dustin Hoffman, Russell Brand, Whoopi Goldberg and Aisling Bea.
