Not a cricket fan, although I do confess to having watched (and enjoyed) a few tests over the years. Nevertheless I was drawn to the 'The Longest Feud: Chappell v Botham' last night on Prime. I'm on Botham's side here; it sounds to me like Chappell is a bit of a pr!ck and is the main reason it was never resolved between them.

For anyone who likes true crime it looks like 2 good programs on tonight at 9pm;

Imposter: The Man Who Came Back from the Dead
9pm, Channel 4
Strap in for an utterly absurd true-crime story. An eccentric man known locally in Glasgow as Arthur Knight woke up from a Covid coma in 2021 and found himself surrounded by police. US authorities claimed his real identity was Nicholas Rossi who, after several rape charges, faked his own death. This four-parter follows the countless shocking reveals as, over two years in court, he and his English wife, Miranda, continued to insist he was Knight. It also speaks with journalists, legal figures involved and the women Rossi allegedly assaulted. The case led to a judge ruling that he is, in fact, Rossi, and he is now facing charges in the US – but the journey needs to be seen to be believed.

Cold Case Investigators: Solving Britain’s Sex Crimes

9pm, BBC Two
A remarkable new series, which follows major crime unit detectives as they reopen cold cases using new DNA technology. We see some of their successes in catching and convicting perpetrators for crimes as far back as 1983, in what are both monumental and frustrating feats – as shown when one man, who was raped in a park when he was a teenager, doesn’t know how to react to the news.
