Countdown to Surrender: The Last 100 Days

8.40pm, PBS America

PBS’s three-part series – airing nightly until Wednesday – charts the final phase of the second world war, as the Nazis’ power diminished, and both western Allies and the Soviets continued the conflict on German soil. It proved to be another brutal chapter. Hannah J Davies

Long Lost Family

The venerable hankie-wringer continues to organise intensely emotional reunions. Tonight, Paula’s quest to find her birth family takes her far from her childhood home in Scotland, while Lisa has the classic Long Lost Family story: growing up in poverty meant her elder sister was given up for adoption. Jack Seale

The Killing Fields (Roland Joffé, 1984) 11.50pm, AMC
Joffé’s charged vision of Cambodia’s year zero, the true story of US journalist Sydney Schanberg (Sam Waterston) tracing the guide, Dith Pran (Haing S Ngor), he was forced to abandon in Phnom Penh as Pol Pot’s genocidal Khmer Rouge arrived. The horrors never engulf the moving central relationship. Paul Howlett
