TV tonight Keeping Faith

Faith takes on her most challenging case yet

This crime drama became a word-of-mouth hit with its first two series, and fans were left reeling last time around when Faith (Eve Myles) decided it wasn’t the right time to make a go of it with her on-off lover Steve Baldini (Mark Lewis Jones). As the Welsh thriller returns for its last ever series, Faith’s going through a traumatic custody battle with her estranged husband Evan (Bradley Freegard), while tackling her most emotional case yet. In tonight’s cracking opener, Celia Imrie joins the cast as the mysterious Rose, whose arrival is about to totally upend Faith’s already fragile life…

TV tonight Paloma Faith: As I Am

Voicing her opinions: Paloma Faith

It’s access all areas in this documentary following pop star, actor and mum-of-two Paloma Faith as she tours the world with her band, while caring for her first-born daughter. Filmed pre-COVID by her friend, Jane Mingay, and covering a year in Paloma’s life, the 39-year-old, who recently gave birth to her second daughter, talks with typical frankness about the troubles she had conceiving, relationships, and her career in a male-dominated industry. Candid and hard-working, Paloma is a force of nature who’s not afraid to voice her vulnerabilities, too.

Recently nominated for a Best Picture Oscar, this powerful film from revered screenwriter Aaron Sorkin tells the story of one of the most infamous court cases in American history. Set as the Vietnam War reached its height in 1968, it brings to life the tale of eight activists who were charged following a riot outside the Democratic National Convention and stood trial before a bitterly prejudiced judge. With fine performances from a star-studded cast including Oscar winners Eddie Redmayne and Mark Rylance, plus fellow Brit Sacha Baron Cohen, it’s a tale that resonates just as loudly today as it did 50 years ago.
