Celebrity Trash Monsters: What’s Your Waste Size?
9pm, Channel 4
As the Cop26 climate change summit looms, TV is taking various constructive and sober approaches to exploring aspects of the climate crisis. But then there’s this: a barmy-sounding challenge show combining upcycling and celebrity to absurd, if well-intentioned, effect. Jon Richardson has a challenge for John Barnes, Jodie Kidd and Kerry Katona: they must wear the stuff found in their bins. Cue ever-expanding suits of trash as the trio’s consumption of ready meals and single-use plastics is revealed. Phil Harrison

The 1968 Summer Olympics produced one of the defining images of the civil rights movement, when African-American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised their gloved fists in a Black Power salute on the winners’ podium; beside them, silver medalist Peter Norman, a white Australian who’d been anything but a passive onlooker. This film tells their story. Ali Catterall

The Death of Stalin
Sunday, 10.45pm, BBC Two
Armando Iannucci brings his eye for the absurdity of politics to bear on the Soviet Union in 1953 in his spry comedy, though the evils of dictatorship lend it the blackest of edges. When Stalin dies suddenly, the cowed Central Committee is thrown into panic, with secret police chief Beria (a deliciously sly Simon Russell Beale) and adviser Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi) jostling for succession. A fine cast deliver the waspish dialogue with relish – particularly Jason Isaacs as the blunt-speaking General Zhukov – as the veneer of Stalin-enforced stability is wiped away. Simon Wardell
