Here are 7 TV shows you can't miss this week...


1. Young, Black and Right-Wing

Sunday 13th November at 10pm on Channel 4


Presenter Zeze Millz is on a journey to explore what it means to be young, Black and right-wing in Britain today. Outspoken in her own views, Zeze has come under fire for views some see as conservative. Now, she's in search of answers.


Why can it be hard to express these views? What drives a Black person to reject systemic racism? Has the left lost touch with Black communities? How much of a barrier to success is racism, really? And ultimately, where on the political spectrum does Zeze lie?


The Black British community is often portrayed as a pretty homogenous group, with very similar opinions: left-leaning and liberal, anti-Tory, fed up with the police and, more than anything, incredibly 'woke'. But for many Black people, this is far from the truth. In fact, there's a whole world of Black Brits who hold polar-opposite views: they're young, they're Black and they're right-wing. But the Black right is not a homogenous group either.


Across the Black right-wing spectrum, there's a range of eclectic groups who vary dramatically in their politics. There are political values that unite these groups, like tradition, personal responsibility and the monarchy. But there are also significant differences in their politics. Some are social conservatives, who believe casual sex is ruining Britain; while others are entrepreneurs, passionate about business, economic growth, making money and low taxation.


In the past, Zeze has voted for both Labour and the Conservatives. Now, she's on a mission across Britain, meeting the various right-wing groups and uncovering their radical, sometimes controversial, views - and working out where on the political spectrum she is. She wants to understand the views of these right-wing groups and individuals to discover where she might have common ground, and where she might clash.


Zeze meets a strong-minded community of social media stars, right-wing influencers, those with strongly held Christian views, and those from within the Conservative party. Delving into a number of complex issues, this film examines young Black politics in Britain.

2. The Santa Clauses

Wednesday 16th November on Disney+


It's been 28 years since we first met divorced dad Scott Calvin, played by Tim Allen, in The Santa Clause who accidentally killed a man in a Santa suit and him and his son are transported to the North Pole, where an elf explains that Scott must take Santa's place before the next Christmas arrives.


Now 16 years after The Santa Clause 3, Scott Calvin is back and after being Santa Claus for nearly thirty years, he’s as jolly as ever. But as Christmas declines in popularity, so does his Santa magic.


On the brink of his 65th birthday, Scott realises that he can't be Santa forever and as he struggles to keep up with the demands of the job, as well as being there for his family who could benefit from a life in the normal world, as well as a lot of elves, children and family to please, Scott discovers there is a way to retire from his post.


As he considers stepping down as Santa Claus, Scott sets out to find a worthy successor, while preparing his family for a new adventure south of the pole, so that he can become a better father and husband.
