How Not To Die on Holiday (BBC3, from Sun, 10am)

The title may sound rather amusing, but there's absolutely nothing funny about this four-part documentary series. Every year we hear terrible stories about people who have gone off on holiday, never to return having suffered some form of accident while supposedly having the time of their lives. Here viewers learn how to help people who may have fallen from a balcony, got caught in a rip current, been involved in a moped crash, become trapped by an avalanche, and other freak events associated with vacationing abroad. There's also a chance to hear from those lucky enough to survive such circumstances. They were lucky to lived to tell the tale, and streaming this programme could enable you - or someone close to you - to do the same.

Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready (Netflix, from Tue)

Six of the eponymous actress's favourite comedians are featured in this series which the streaming giant describes as "A bold new collection of hilarious half-hour stand-up specials". Ms Haddish hosts and produces the rib-tickling series, and the rising stars taking part are Chaunte Wayans, April Macie, Tracey Ashley, Aida Rodriguez, Flame Monroe and Marlo Williams. As you might know, Tiffany is one of Hollywood's hottest properties right now, having popped up in 2017 hit Girls Trip. She also lent her dulcet tones to a string of animated sequels: The Lego Movie 2, The Secret Life of Pets 2 and The Angry Birds Movie 2. Whether you're a fan or have never heard of her, safe to say there are plenty of giggles here to enjoy.

Stacey Dooley Investigates: Nigeria's Female Suicide Bombers (BBC3, from Wed, 10am)

Boko Haram is a notorious terrorist group, regarded as one of the most dangerous in the world; it has gained notoriety for the mass kidnapping of schoolgirls and using women as suicide bombers. In this chilling documentary, Dooley travels to the city of Maiduguri in Nigeria to meet a survivor of the group's terrifying regime. Falmata was abducted at the age of 13, forced to marry three times and then strapped into a suicide belt before being sent out on a bombing mission. Miraculously she lived to tell her chilling story. Dooley also talks to Ammabua who joined Boko Haram voluntarily, but a twist of fate saved her from becoming a suicide bomber, and now she's trying to re-integrate into a community whose residents she was once willing to kill.

Diagnosis (Netflix, from Fri)

In case you're not familiar with Dr Lisa Sanders' New York Times Magazine column, there's a chance to see what the Yale physician's amazing life involves in this new series. She crowdsources diagnoses for rare and mysterious medical conditions in the new documentary strand. "What if social media could save lives," she asks. "Right now there are literally millions of people struggling with undiagnosed medical conditions...". Among the patients treated in this compelling series is a little girl who is paralysed for short times up to 300 times a day. We also meet a Gulf War veteran who is losing his memory. It's an uplifting show which proves social media isn't always about selfies and trolls.

Mindhunter (Netflix, from Fri)

The title might not have generated much interest in 2017, but the drama centring on the early days of behavioural analysis proved to be one of the most compelling series of recent years. For those playing catch up, it centres on 1970s agents Holden Ford (Jonathan Groff) and Bill Tench (Holt McCallany) of the bureau's Behavioural Sciences unit. They attempt to understand patterns in murderous behaviour by interviewing incarcerated serial killers. Series two covers a series of murders in Atlanta from 1979-81, which saw 28 kids, teens and adults (all African-American) killed in the Georgian capital. Producer David Fincher, who also made compelling thrillers Seven and Zodiac, directs the first episode of the new run.
