Pick of the day: Adam Lambert: Out, Loud and Proud

9pm, ITV1

It’s currently Pride Month and, in this documentary, American singer and Queen frontman Adam Lambert explores how British LGBTQ+ artists have fought for their place in the music industry. Through interviews with Brian May and Roger Taylor, who reflect on queer icon Freddie Mercury, and conversations with LGBTQ+ artists including Erasure’s Andy Bell, Skin from Skunk Anansie and pop icon MNEK, Lambert investigates the history of his community in the UK. There’s also a look at ongoing struggles, with Golden Globe-winning transgender actress and singer Michaela Jaé Rodriguez.

1pm, ITV1/4.30pm and 7.30pm, BBC One

Scotland’s second Group A match, this time against Switzerland, will garner the most domestic interest today (kick-off at 8pm). Gabby Logan presents the live BBC coverage in Cologne. Steve Clarke’s men will, of course, be keen to win after their 5-1 defeat to hosts Germany. Earlier kick-offs today are Croatia vs Albania and Hungary vs Germany.

Waitrose: Trouble in the Aisles?

8pm, Channel 5

Presumably owner John Lewis Partnership won’t be advertising during this report on the declining sales of their supermarket, known for being the mainstay of middle-class shoppers, which also explores the reasons for its decline in popularity.

Grand Designs

9pm, Channel 4

Channel 4 appears to have given up the ghost this evening, with back-to-back repeats. This, however, was one of the more memorable builds presented by Kevin McCloud – a red-clad “skinny house” in a terraced street in Hackney, north London.

Klimt and the Kiss

9pm, Sky Arts

“The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt – an evocative and sensual image of an unknown couple embracing – is one of the most recognised and reproduced paintings in the world. This documentary charts the history of the dazzlingly decorated portrait, painted in Vienna in 1908.

Alaska Daily

9pm, Alibi

This drama, about a disgraced hotshot New York journalist (Hilary Swank) now working for a struggling regional title in Anchorage, was cancelled after one season and it’s easy to see why. But if you don’t mind clunky dialogue and heavily signposted plot developments, it’s not entirely without its merits.

Unfortunately, their newspaper’s owner has endorsed the candidate.

The Cops

10.15pm, BBC Four

Made by Tony Garnett’s World Productions, who had great success in the 1990s with This Life and Between The Lines (and later Line of Duty), this two-times Bafta-winning police drama, which ran between 1998 and 2001, is largely forgotten now. It follows the work of a team of uniformed officers in the fictional crime-ridden northern town of Stanton (in reality Bolton), and the realism was groundbreaking at the time.
