Top Gear: 50 Years of Bond Cars, BBC Knowledge, 6.30pm
RICHARD Hammond presents a special that will delight movie buffs at least as much as it does car lovers. Veteran Bond film director Guy Hamilton, former 007 Roger Moore and current super-spy Daniel Craig are among those who tell fascinating behind-the-scenes stories and nominate their favourite Bond cars and car chases. Hammond provides plenty of interesting background on the cars and on the eventful relationships between the car companies and the filmmakers. Great stuff.
Shahs of Sunset, Arena, 2pm
SHAHS of Sunset might be a cookie-cutter Persian-American knockoff of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but it does at least have a couple of semi-sympathetic cast members. One is the openly gay Reza, who last episode apparently found peace and acceptance in an overdue heart-to-heart with his father. The other is M.J., who, inspired by Reza's success, sets out tonight to seek rapprochement with her critical and unaffectionate mother (who, unfortunately, only ups the hostility and in effect pronounces M.J. unfit for marriage). On the whole, though, the rich-kid cast exhibits the same sort of bratty, self-absorbed gaucheness and dedication to conspicuous consumption that we see everywhere, from Made in Chelsea to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Once again, it goes to show it doesn't matter where you come from; what really matters is how much money your parents gave you.
