Branded 8 p.m., ESPN

This is the final entry in ESPN’s summer documentary series “Nine for IX.” “Branded” looks at how the media and Madison Avenue focus on appearance more than accomplishment when it comes to female players. Women athletes are expected to be sexy as well as good at their sport in order to get attention. Among those interviewed: Chris Evert, Mary Lou Retton, and Gabrielle Reece. The film is from Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, whose previous work includes “Jesus Camp,” a look at the young Christian Right that was nominated for an Oscar.

The March 9 p.m., Channel 2


This PBS documentary looks back at the 1963 March on Washington, a political rally for human rights and equality. The hour chronicles some of the backstage stories, as well as clips of participants such as Harry Belafonte and US Representative John Lewis (D-Ga.) as well as a look at Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
