TV tonight: Sue Perkins takes on a bear in Alaska

Sue Perkins: Lost in Alaska

9pm, Channel 5

There are easier places to film a celebrity travel show, but Sue Perkins has opted for the stunning if challenging terrain of Alaska.

The second episode of this ominous horror documentary series takes us back to the night the “very religious” DeFeo family were found dead in their beds in 112 Ocean Avenue – a year before the Lutzes moved into the suburban home and were famously driven out by inexplicable events in just 28 days. Were mob ties to blame … or paranormal forces? Kayleigh Dray

Seth MacFarlane returns as the potty-mouthed teddy bear magicked to life in this prequel series to the 2012 film. Judging by the belligerent opening double bill, the aim is to send up 1990s family sitcom tropes via swears and slurs. Admittedly, the CG is a marvel: Ted miming masturbation looks uncannily real.

Film choice

Benjamin (Simon Amstell, 2018), Friday, 2am, Film4
Simon Amstell’s follow-up to his futuristic vegan mockumentary Carnage is a more conventional affair. A witty relationship drama with a self-deprecating but politely direct lead character who could be an avatar for Amstell himself, it follows Benjamin (an engagingly vulnerable Colin Morgan), a film-maker working through the ambivalent response to his latest, semi-autobiographical feature. Then he meets music student Noah (Phénix Brossard), and their stop-start romance provides the meat of an appealing if meandering story of awkward feelings. Simon Wardell
