The Inspector Lynley Mysteries (PBS, 9-10:30 pm): That dashing lord of the realm is back on the beat in this summer's "Mystery!" In the first episode, a little boy has disappeared and an old school chum, now a teacher, calls Lynley for help.

P.O.V. - Soldados: Chicanos in Vietnam (PBS, 10-10:30 p.m.): Latinos have fought in every US war since the Revolutionary War, and we have rarely heard about them - until now.
