TV Times top picks for tonight
What’s on telly tonight? Here the TV Times team of expert reviewers highlight the best shows on Friday 29th June
Florida Fly Drive, 10pm, Channel 5
Fans of the late entertainer will surely shed a tear as his last TV outing reaches its final leg. Dale Winton [who gave us one of his final interviews] arrives at the Gulf Coast and first stop is the Don CeSar hotel, a playground for the rich and famous known as the Pink Palace. As you can imagine, Dale feels right at home. Dolphin-watching and a show by ‘real-life’ mermaids follow, with Dale riding off into the sunset with a gang of bikers. We’ll miss you… Rating: ****
Cruising with Jane McDonald, 9pm, Channel 5
Once again, Queen of Cruise Jane has proved to be a fun travelling companion in this fourth series, and she’s bowing out in style on the final leg of her South American voyage. In Argentina, she visits Gaiman, the largest Welsh settlement outside of Wales, and after a spot of singing, she’s back on the ship making Welsh cakes! In Buenos Aires, she learns more about one of Argentina’s most famous daughters, Eva Perón – or Evita, as the world came to know her. Could another tune be on the cards?! Then there’s lunch in Punta Del Este, Uruguay’s answer to Monte Carlo, before a final stop in Montevideo for a wine-tasting tour. Rating: ***
Boys on Film, 9pm, BBC4
In 1978 five lads from Birmingham formed a band. Little did they know that 40 years later they’d still be making music. ‘Boys on Film: A Night with Duran Duran’ kicks off with There’s Something You Should Know, in which Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor look back at their amazing career, from signing their first record deal in 1980 to being one of the biggest bands in the world. They talk openly about the highs of the early years, but also admit that by 1985 they couldn’t stand the sight of each other. A Night In follows at 10pm, looking at the band’s various inspirations, then Unstaged (11pm), an LA concert film directed by Twin Peaks creator David Lynch. Rating: *****
