The Gamechangers (BBC2, 9pm)

Tuesday’s TV tips

As the star of the Harry Potter movies, Daniel Radcliffe knows better than most what it’s like to be caught up in a cultural phenomenon. So, he’s arguably the perfect choice to star in this fact-based drama, which explores the story of the computer game Grand Theft Auto.

If you weren’t among the fans who helped the most recent iteration of GTA earn £1billion in just three days, making it fastest-selling entertainment product in history, the game was created by a British team, led by Sam Houser (Radcliffe) and gives players the chance to enter a fantasy version of America’s criminal underworld, where they can hijack cars and gun down criminals.

But while that may be an enticing offer for some, the game also picks up its fair share of critics, including campaigning lawyer Jack Thompson (Bill Paxton).


Lucy Worsley’s Reins of Power: The Art of Horse Dancing (BBC4, 9pm)

Lucy Worsley may be an expert historian, but she is a novice horse rider. However, this doesn’t stop her attempting to learn the 17th-century art of horse ballet leading up to a public performance.

Along the way, she explores the origins of this peculiar pastime, in which a rider appears to be relaxed and effort-free while the horse willingly performs the requested movement.

Plus she witnesses some spectacular displays abroad and discovers its surprising legacies.


The Interpreter (ITV4, 9.00pm)

(2005) Sydney Pollack’s gripping thriller stars Nicole Kidman as Silvia Broome, a UN translator who overhears a plot to murder an African head of state.

When the would-be killers discover she knows about the plan, she is sucked into a dangerous world of murder, double-crossing and espionage.

Placed into the protection of federal agent Tobin Keller (Sean Penn), the crisis deepens as he uncovers information about her murky past and connections, leading him to believe she could be part of the assassination.

However, he is also facing a battle against his own demons, and soon the duo become dependant on each other to stay alive as they try to discover the truth.

Pollack was a specialist in tension, as previous triumphs Three Days of the Condor and The Firm have shown, and this offering certainly doesn’t dent that reputation.


The Changing Room (Ch4, 10pm)

New series. With the aid of cameras in the fitting rooms of House of Fraser, New Look, H&M, Monsoon, River Island and House of CB, this series investigates the assorted dramas within.

Fashion designer Henry Holland aims to help shoppers with their wardrobe woes and shares his tips on what to buy and what not to buy.

In the first episode, Brooke searches for a killer dress to win back her ex, Dai and his mates look for holiday gear to show off their muscles, and Henry helps a woman having problems with epaulets.


Adam & Paul (Film4, 2.10am)

(2004) Adam (Mark O’Halloran) and Paul (Tom Murphy) have been friends since they were small boys and have followed similar paths through life, ending up as two hopeless Dublin junkies.

Over the course of a single day, these two doomed souls scrounge and steal money to buy drugs and feed their habits.

Unfortunately, fate is not kind to Adam and Paul, and after all these years together, the felonious twosome has finally run out of luck, credit and friends.

Made on a shoestring budget, this movie is testament to what can be achieved with a good idea and strong performances. In fact, O’Halloran and Murphy were so convincing that the local Garda thought they really were junkies during filming, and asked them to leave the set.
