Eurovision at 60 (BBC4, 9pm)

Tomorrow’s Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna will mark the 60th time the musical extravaganza has taken place.

Here, viewers are taken on a nostalgic trip back in time from the contest’s launch in 1956, when just seven countries were involved, up to the present day when 195 million viewers will be tuning in. Hosts and competitors tell the behind-the-scenes story of the greatest and most eccentric song contest on Earth.
