What’s On TV Tonight? Our Pick Of The Best Shows: Friday 24th November

TV Times tops picks for tonight

What’s on telly tonight? Here the TV Times team of expert reviewers highlight three of the best shows on telly tonight for Friday 24th November

Extreme Wives, times vary, BBC2

The final episode of the series sees Kate in Shillong, north eastern India. She is with the Khasi people, who have one of the very last matrilineal cultures left in the world. After the brutality and inequality witnessed in the first two episodes, Khasi culture feels like a utopia for females. A woman can be independent and educated, she is in charge of all property and the family’s finances, and the children take her name. It almost seems too good to be true but, of course, it’s not perfect. Kate discovers many Khasi women are single mothers, with men feeling they have no responsibility to care or pay for their children. A fascinating conclusion to one of the year’s best documentary series. Rating: *****

But to spot this majestic bird of prey, Ray must take to the skies with bush pilot Paul O’Brien, where they hope to catch a glimpse of eagles riding the thermal currents. Rating: ****
