As the great and good of British television descend on London’s Royal Festival Hall for the BAFTA TV Awards, it’s tempting to think of the awards show as a star-studded exercise in self-congratulation. Which, in some ways, it is.


But television has a lot to feel good about right now. Louis Theroux talks about learning to love himself and why he is no longer a TV outsider. Plus, Radio Times talks to Sharon Horgan, Joe Lycett, Golda Rosheuvel, Ellie Simmonds, Will Sharpe and Munya Chawawa.

In the last few days, TV has brought Britain together for the coronation. This week there’s another example of a live show that has the power to unite viewers – not just across the nation, but across frontiers, too – Eurovision!

Last year’s contest – in which Britain’s Sam Ryder came second – attracted 10.1 million viewers in the UK! In this week’s Radio Times, read interviews with Graham Norton and UK entry Mae Muller.
