Spring walks

7:30 p.m., BBC Four

US traitors

8 p.m., BBC 3

The casting of the US version of the vicious reality series led to a subtly different and arguably less effective dynamic than in the UK iteration. But as the endgame approaches, it’s no less compelling. This week, a negative consensus is forming around Cody. But in Traitor Turret, prepare for the mother of all twists. Phil Harrison

“Putin, who had long opposed intervention on foreign soil, did just that.” The second episode of this gripping series focuses on Putin’s assertion of Russian power in the Middle East, including David Cameron’s recollection of a “bickerfest” after taking Putin to watch judo at the London 2012 Olympics to try to bring it closer to the west.

Never Rarely Sometimes Always (Eliza Hittman, 2020), 11:15 p.m., BBC Two

As a genre, “abortion drama” can be something you really have to prepare for, but that’s definitely not the case with Eliza Hittman’s terrific indie about a pregnant teenager forced to travel from rural Pennsylvania to New York to have a pregnancy termination. In lesser hands, a premise like this would simply be a vehicle for scoring histrionic points. Hittman, however, handles the subject with sensitivity and grace, which only adds to his power. And then there’s lead actor Sidney Flanigan, a rookie who’s destined to become a megastar. You saw her here first. Stuart Legacy
