TV and Streaming – Monday 24th August 2020

Morning!

Another Monday as we head ever closer to September and an attempt to some form of normality. I will be slowly bringing this daily blog to end this week but fear not, I will be producing a weekly rundown for your planning pleasures, as I return to the cinema for the first time since March (Misbehaviour was my final movie). Anyway, here are today’s recommendations.

Stay safe, look after yourself and Happy Monday!
