One of the joys of Mike White’s murder mystery-cum-satire about overprivileged tourists holidaying in Sicily is trying to guess who is going to be killed by whom. My money for the chop is on financier Cameron (Theo James) and serially unfaithful Dom (Michael Imperioli), although that might be too simplistic for what is a lethally sharp drama dissecting the social and intellectual differences among the White Lotus’s guests. The latest episode covers the sexual impasse within Ethan and Harper’s relationship, suggests that Tanya’s new husband, Greg (Jon Gries), may be a gold-digger and reveals the tragedy at the heart of Cameron and Daphne’s marriage.

In case anyone was wondering about the whereabouts of “the pact” of the drama’s title, all will become clearer after this week’s episode. It all comes to a head at Megan’s wedding, inevitably gate-crashed by long-lost son/cuckoo in the nest Liam/Connor (Jordan Wilks). “I know what you did… I know the truth”, he tells Christine (the excellent Rakie Ayola) when she confronts him outside the church.

In the wake of the 1988 Euros, the reputation of the England players and fans had hit rock bottom, so the Italian authorities put England’s group games in Sardinia, to keep the hooligans away from the mainland. This continuing series shows how, as the players progressed, undercover British police officers were tasked with keeping the peace off the pitch, in the hope that England could make it to the knockout stage and not be thrown out of the competition.

The concluding programme in the series looks at Britain’s influence on technology in the 80s. In Cambridge, a chance discovery leads to the creation of a chip so powerful it found its way into billions of mobile phones. And a new generation of computer-literate kids built the foundations for an industry now worth $235bn (£208bn), while Tim Berners-Lee staked a claim for the biggest discovery of all. Yes, you’re probably using it right now.

Presenter Alan Yentob has been busy and in his second Imagine profile in as many nights (and not counting last week’s interview with Bob Geldof), he follows artist Sonia Boyce as she represents Great Britain at the 2022 Venice Biennale.
