Series two begins as Max is released from prison having lost everything that matters to him, and realising he’s going to have to lower his standards if he wants to start clawing it all back.

Last year, musician and broadcaster Myleene Klass broke one of society’s great taboos by posting an account on her Instagram of the four miscarriages she and her fiancé Simon Motson experienced before having their son Apollo. Myleene kept silent for so long because she was grieving and felt like she had failed somehow – and by bravely and frankly telling her story in this heartfelt documentary, she’s hoping to show other women that it’s okay, and in fact healthy, to talk about miscarriage. Myleene also meets MP Olivia Blake, who is pushing for a debate in parliament to call for better miscarriage care.

Musician will.i.am, aka William Adams, is a familiar face thanks to his career with the US group Black-Eyed Peas and his ongoing role as a judge on TV talent show The Voice. In this one-off, he’s showing his more serious side as he investigates the history of black Britain, learning more about Liverpool’s slave trade links and our own civil rights trailblazers, and hearing about the prospects for young black Britons today. There are insights into his own childhood, growing up in the East LA projects, striking memories of civil rights leader Malcolm X’s visit to Smethwick in the West Midlands, and an inspiring visit to a school in South London’s Peckham, where the students share their ambitions for the future.

Best film to watch on TV tonight

The Last of the Mohicans, 6.50pm, AMC

A rip-roaring, old-fashioned romantic adventure adapted from James Fenimore Cooper’s frontier novel set in 1757, when Britain and France were fighting for control of North America. Daniel Day-Lewis is superb as Hawkeye, a virile, enigmatic Irish-American frontiersman who has to protect colonel’s daughter Madeleine Stowe.
