TV Times top picks for tonight

What’s on telly tonight? Here the TV Times team of expert reviewers highlight the best shows on Saturday 14th July

The Voice Kids, 8pm, ITV

The little people are back to show the adults how it’s done as The Voice Kids returns. This time, all the action from the blind auditions, battle rounds and semi-final will be crammed into one week! Every night, the pint-sized performers will attempt to impress the returning coaches, McFly’s Danny Jones, singer Pixie Lott and music producer and Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am. Keep your eyes peeled for seven-year-old Bristolian cowboy Shaney-Lee and 13-year-old Lucia, whose dad might be familiar to Coronation Street fans. Will they be able to do enough to make the coaches turn those bright red chairs around? Rating: *****

Reginald D Hunter’s Songs of the Border, 9pm, BBC2

Following his wonderful Songs of the South series, comedian Reginald D Hunter takes a road trip along the US-Mexico border and sees how music can give us insight into issues such as immigration, drug smuggling and national identity. In Texas, Reginald meets country legend Lyle Lovett and asks: do Texans have a Lone Star state mentality? While President Trump wants to keep the nations separate with his wall, Reginald argues that through music, they’re inextricably linked. Part travelogue, part history lesson, part musical celebration. Rating: ****

Hidden, 9pm, BBC4

DI Cadi visits Endaf Elwy in prison. He was charged with murdering Anna Williams but Cadi suspects Anna’s death is linked to the other cases she’s investigating. Elsewhere, Megan’s disappearance is reported to the police and they immediately suspect a link. She is, of course, festering in an outbuilding on Dylan’s creepy farm where he’s promising to take care of her, as long as she behaves… Rating: ***

More previews tomorrow.
