Daniel Radcliffe plays the title role in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.”

Give ’em heck, Harry

Hard to believe that “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” one of the best films in the J.K. Rowling-inspired series, came out a dozen years ago, with fresh performances from its young cast, including Daniel Radcliffe, who couldn’t have been a better choice for the title character. 7 p.m. Saturday, KSTP, Ch. 5

Jack in a box

If you’re hungry for a more grown-up Radcliffe, check out “My Boy Jack,” in which he plays the only son of Rudyard Kipling, who goes missing during France’s Battle of Loos in 1915. David Haig, who directed and wrote the screenplay, cast himself as the famous author. Kim Cattrall and Carey Mulligan also star. 7 p.m. Sunday, Ovation

Meals on wheels

Tyler Florence returns to host a fifth season of “The Great Food Truck Race,” in which three-person teams vie for $50,000 to start their own business. Among the competitors: Chatty Chicken, Let There Be Bacon, Lone Star Chuck Wagon and Madres Mexican Meals. Is anyone else suddenly famished? 8 p.m. Sunday, Food Network
