TV Guide 2019-07-06

The annual Wimbledon Exposition of Rainwear dominates schedules this week, to the extent that we don't have any new shows, or any finals.

Shall we pick three under-rated shows? Harry Hill's Alien Fun Capsule (ITV, Sat) continues to subvert the panel show genre. The Great Garden Challenge (2) (C5, Tue), which we promise to watch because it's not on against the football. And Elephant in the Room (Radio 4, Thu), an interesting take on things we hold in common.
