A view to a kill

Give your dad the ultimate Father’s Day gift: some peace and quiet so he can enjoy a 22-hour James Bond marathon that starts with the Sean Connery comeback vehicle “Never Say Never Again.” If Pop has been really good this year, mix him a shaken-not-stirred martini in the afternoon. 8 a.m. Saturday, Epix

Oh, say can you sing

The national anthem may be almost impossible to sing, but — gosh darn it — it’s our song and we’re going to embrace it. Join the celebration with “A Star-Spangled Story: Battle for America,” a detailed look at how Francis Scott Key came up with the number without the guiding hands of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Super soprano Renee Fleming is among those interpreting the lyrics. 8 p.m. Saturday, Smithsonian

This means war

“Inside Combat Rescue: The Last Stand” takes an unfiltered look at the final stages of Operation Enduring Freedom, a two-hour special told through testimonials from the men and women who were on the ground and air. Cameras capture harrowing moments in hostile territory. 8 p.m. Sunday, National Geographic
