TV tonight: Ruby Wax revisits her time with Donald Trump | Television
When Ruby Wax met
9 p.m., BBC Two
“Trump scared me,” Ruby Wax recalls. “And I think it’s my fault he continued his career.” It’s a striking opening bet, but the footage from their 1996 game is undeniably disturbing in places. This series in which Wax – now with the perspective provided by an MA in Cognitive Therapy – looks back on her previous career as a celebrity interviewer is a fun, at times revealing vision. Other featured, slightly less stressful encounters include OJ Simpson and Carrie Fisher. Phil harrison

The Straight Story 11am, Film4
Whimsical, slow, and incredibly smooth, that’s exactly what you wouldn’t expect from David Lynch. Richard Farnsworth exudes charm and dignity as Iowa farmer Alvin Straight, who jumps on his lawn mower to visit his dying brother. It’s a long road, rich in Lynch’s underhand view of American life.
