Warrior Women With Lupita Nyong’o

10pm, Channel 4

The Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o played a warrior princess in the Marvel superhero movie Black Panther. In this documentary she visits Benin in West Africa to seek out real-life counterparts – the Agoji, an army of women who fought for the rulers of the kingdom of Dahomey. Nyong’o is divested of romantic notions of empowerment when she learns that the Agoji were forcibly recruited and used to abduct captives for the Atlantic slave trade. “Any notion of the Agoji being a beacon of enlightened feminism has long gone,” she remarks ruefully, but adds: “This is one of Africa’s untold stories.”

The Apprentice

9pm, BBC One

The remaining 13 contestants have a lie-in this week – well, until 4.45am anyway, when they are ferried off to the London Transport Museum to learn of their next task. This week, it is to design and market a new electric bike, which feels like a bit of a step-up after ice lollies and children’s toys. Iasha and Thomas are the project managers. I’m not sure if anyone has yet produced a dictionary of Apprentice speak, but the comment “If that’s your decision then I’ll go with it,” should be translated as “See you in the boardroom when I’ll knife you in the back.” Karren Brady and Claude Littner’s facial expressions, of course, need no translating.

Korea: The Never Ending War

9pm, BBC Four

The Korean War of 1950 to 1953 is also referred to as the “forgotten war”, despite the massive loss of life (five million people were killed), how it nearly escalated into a nuclear conflict and the legacy that is still with us today. This lucid documentary tells the story of how the Cold War saw the country divided arbitrarily (in just 30 minutes) along the 38th Parallel, and how mixed signals from Washington gave the green light to the Communist north’s invasion of the US-aligned south. General Douglas MacArthur saved the south in the nick of time, but his gung-ho leadership drew China into the fight – and the rest was bloody stalemate.
