TV and Streaming – Sunday 19th April 2020

Morning!

Well, it’s Sunday. A day of rest. Although how much rest can we have? I hope you are all keeping well and not going to loco. Tonight on BBC1 at 7.15pm is the Lady Gaga concert that went out last night, with added Brit stars. Don’t normally mention TV shows here but it might be worth tuning into (just to see Charlie Puth’s bed!) Extended versions are available on Amazon Prime and YouTube.

Elsewhere, movies to catch during the day, evening and night.

Stay safe, stay inside and Happy Sunday!
