Get ready for another trek across the globe with the lovely Ms Lumley! Her four-part journey, taking in the diverse countries along the legendary road once used by silk traders, starts in Venice where she looks at the impact the silk trade has had on the city since 13th-century explorer Marco Polo brought silk there from China.

DIY SOS: Grenfell, 9pm, BBC1

Since then the close-knit community has been dispersed even further by a shortage of affordable housing. While the banter, bravado and sheer hard work on the building site of the new community centre is inspiring, the real strength of this DIY SOS special is that it gives a voice to the people living through this painful tragedy.
