Best TV shows on TV tonight

Jeremy Clarkson stays true to his acerbic, bolshie TV persona as this entertaining new eight part documentary follows his progress getting to grips, (or not as seems to be the case tonight), with the 1,000-acre Cotswold farm where he lives. Tonight’s opener sees him purchase a ludicrously huge Lamborghini tractor that he is clueless about operating, make a hash of ploughing some fields and get a severe telling off from his new right hand man, young farmer Kaleb who brings fun and youth to proceedings. Fans of Clarkson will enjoy it. Farmers will be rolling their eyes in despair!

‘I don’t even know what Dutch food is,’ says Gregg as he embarks on a mini-break in Amsterdam. But as well as filling his belly with the best local food he can find, he also wants to enrich his mind and learn more about this tolerant and liberal city. He visits the Rijksmuseum to check out the paintings of the Dutch masters and goes on a guided boat tour to discover more about the city’s rich history. He also has fun at the biggest flower market in the world and ends his trip at a floral festival where the blooms are as big as dinosaurs.
