Alan Carr .’s epic game show

7pm, ITV

Is this a game show or a potted history of outdated quiz franchises? Both, effectively, with this episode seeing a reincarnation of Take Your Pick – a curious combination of general knowledge, picking boxes at random, and trying not to say “yes” or “no”. Judging by the participants, the latter is more difficult than you might think. Alexi Duggins

Bob Marley Reinvented

Bob’s grandson Skip, with soul icon Ruby Turner and singer JP Cooper, marks 60 years of Jamaican independence and tops this celebration of the music of the man from Town Hall, Birmingham – one of the UK’s most reggae-focused cities.

Movie choice

Who do you think I am, 9pm, BBC Four

The dangers of social media are the theme of this French drama, but the subject is not your typical childhood. Middle-aged professor and single mother Claire (Juliette Binoche) is dumped by her lover in her twenties. She takes revenge by creating a fake Facebook profile – 24-year-old Clara – and befriending his roommate Alex. A relationship with Alex grows through text messages and phone calls, and a Claire lets herself into thinking she represents the real she. Safy Nebbou’s film sensitively unravels Claire’s desires and insecurities, all beautifully expressed by Binoche. Simon Wardell

A roll call from largely unsung female electronic music pioneers is the focus of Lisa Rovner’s fascinating historical introduction. From theremin soloist Clara Rockmore and BBC Radiophonic Workshop co-founder Daphne Oram to 1960s soundscape artist Pauline Oliveros and advertising soundtrack Suzanne Ciani, all found creative autonomy outside the establishment through tape loops, printed circuit boards and synthesizers. With a wealth of performance images, it is a laudatory tale of forced DIY careers and indomitable imaginations. SW
