Game of Thrones reaches its bloody finale this evening, Michael Palin's new kids series and David Beckham settles into retirement

The Clangers

CBeebies, 5.30pm

New series. Michael Palin narrates a revival of the classic animation about the adventures of a clan of friendly aliens living on a small blue planet. Little has changed as the family – Major, Mother, Granny, Tiny and Small – are still pink, knitted, mouse-like creatures, they still whistle and they still tell gentle, sweet stories. Today, the Music Tree notes for Tiny Clanger’s marvellous new melody are blown away by a strong wind and no-one can find them.

 

David Beckham into the Unknown

Documentary following David Beckham and three friends into one of the few places on Earth where the ex-footballer isn’t known – the Amazon rainforest. Before flying to Manaus, Beckham enjoys a game of beach foot-volleyball with locals from Rio’s Vidigal favela, but things look set to hot up when almost 800 miles of boat and bike travel brings them to a remote jungle territory, home of the Yanonami tribe.
