What is on TV tonight? Animals Behaving Badly and Game of Thrones Greatest Moments

The Week rounds up the best picks for this evening’s television

If you are suffering from Westeros withdrawal, celebrities and cast members looks back at the most memorable GoT scenes so far in Game of Thrones Greatest Moments, on Sky Atlantic at 10.10pm.

With just two episodes remaining, Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing is proving to be “one of summer’s surprise TV treats”, says The Daily Telegraph. Tonight, on BBC Two at 10pm, comedians Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer fish at Christchurch’s Bridge Pool in Dorset.

Meanwhile, in Animals Behaving Badly, at 8pm on BBC one, Liz Bonnin explores the biological reasons behind wildlife antics, such as macaques kidnapping babies and mongooses starting fights in order to mate.

This is followed by Killed By My Debt, at 9pm on BBC One. The docudrama tells the true story of a Croydon teenager who spiralled into debt after receiving two minor traffic fines, and later committed suicide.

Tonight’s best film recommendation is Flightplan (2005), on Sky One at 9pm. Jodie Foster stars as a distraught widow whose daughter disappears on board a plane and is told that there is no record of the girl getting on the flight - described by veteran critic Roger Ebert as “a frightening thriller with an airtight plot”.
