TV Times tops picks for tonight

What’s on telly tonight? Here the TV Times team of expert reviewers highlight three of the best shows on telly tonight for Saturday 2nd December

Casualty, 9.10pm, BBC1

Let’s just hand all the TV awards to Amanda Mealing right now – her performance throughout Connie’s cancer storyline has been heartbreaking. Tonight, Connie’s hair starts falling out, and Charlie starts to suspect there’s something wrong with his friend. Meanwhile, a patient is brought in with an unexploded device wedged into his leg, and Max decides it’s time to date again. Rating: ****

Can We Live with Robots?, 7.00pm, C4

Can We Live with Robots?

As part of C4’s Rise of the Robots season, this intriguing documentary follows acclaimed dancer and choreographer Akram Khan as he travels from the UK to Japan and the USA to learn about the future of artificial intelligence and robots. This makes for fascinating (and possibly unsettling, depending on your standpoint) TV in itself, but that’s not all. After meeting scientists harnessing AI, as well as some of the most cutting-edge robots on the planet, Khan devises a piece of dance that he hopes will reflect his fears and scepticism over the subject. There’s more AI machinery-based viewing at 10.25pm, too, with Will Smith’s 2004 dystopian sci-fi thriller, I, Robot. Rating: ****

Witnesses: A Frozen Death, from 9.00pm, BBC4

The intrigue deepens in the French drama when the body of a young woman is found beneath a wind turbine. Naturally, this leads the police to wonder if the death is linked to last week’s gruesome discovery of an abandoned bus with 15 frozen corpses on board. Could a dating app used by Catherine shed light on events? Rating: ****

More previews tomorrow
