9 PM - Channel 4 - Born to be Different
1/3

Here's a programme designed to have us weeping into our sofa cushions. It's a set of tales about small children with disabilities and the struggles of their long-suffering parents. It's familiar ground: scenes of tearful mums and dads hugging in hospital corridors, toddlers on gurneys and doctors trying to sound upbeat. But what could be just emotive becomes genuinely uplifting as the programme goes on. You're lost in admiration for mothers such as Vicky, whose daughter Shelbie is dependent on oxygen machines. An intimate and unsentimental documentary.

11 PM - Scottish - Badiel and Skinner Unplanned
Frank Skinner and David Baddiel - unscripted and totally unrehearsed - tackle subjects suggested by a studio audience.

7 PM - BBC1 - The Story of God

The God of the Gaps


Robert Winston presents a documentary series on the history of man's quest to understand the nature of God. He examines how belief in God had been challenged in the modern world by secular ideas, in particular science, and looks at how people of all religious beliefs have over the centuries accommodated their faith with the pursuit of knowledge. Also, how advances in astronomy, physics and biology challenged religious beliefs, and the past and current debates over Darwin's theory of evolution.

Take your pick:

BBC1, Sweeney Todd

Two throat-slashings, a dismembering, the removal of a bullet without anaesthetic, an illegal abortion and an amputation. No, it's not some weird change of direction for Richard Four Weddings and a Funeral Curtis, merely the contents of the first half-hour of this extraordinarily gruesome drama. The always watchable Ray Winstone is Sweeney Todd, a tormented and unhappy barber who channels his sadness into slashing the throats of his customers before chopping them up and sending the bits to the bakery next door to be made into pies. He's helped by the owner of said pie shop, the comely Mrs Lovett (Essie Davis) who, along with her remarkably cantilevered bosom, holds Sweeney Todd in her thrall. It's all very atmospheric, and you can almost smell stinky 18th-century London. And there are moments of black humour. But blimey, you'll need a strong stomach.
RT reviewer: Alison Graham


BBC2, Three Men in a Boat

1/2
Initially, this looked cringe-making to me. Three comedians mess about in a rowing boat to re-create Jerome K Jerome's trip up the Thames, the kind of TV travelogue that sounds like a load of rusty rowlocks. How wrong could I be? Something in the chemistry between Griff Rhys Jones, Rory McGrath and the younger Dara O'Briain works a treat and the result is very funny in the way that only silly, off-the-cuff, joshing comedy can be. The trio make some pleasant stops along their way, such as David Gilmour's palatial houseboat-cum-studio. "Nice of him to let us in unannounced," they say. Yeah right, the publicity-shy Pink Floyd guitarist with a solo album out soon had no idea at all that three comics and a camera crew were about to turn up. And wrestling isn't fixed. Despite such fakery, there's loads to enjoy here, including a scurrilous anecdote about David Seaman, a prickly meeting between Dara and Antony Worrall Thompson, and some lovely scenery, too. The concluding part is on Thursday.
RT reviewer: David Butcher


Scottish, Teenage Tourettes Camp

There are moments in this documentary that are like a Little Britain sketch. Except this isn't funny. It follows five British teenagers with the incurable neurological disorder Tourette syndrome as they spend a week in a special American summer camp. Here there's no need to suppress the random verbal outbursts, uncontrollable twitches and strange noises that society finds so unacceptable. Everyone's doing it. The kids are accepted, not ostracised, so they can relax and find new ways to manage their antisocial tics. For us it's a rare chance to see past the offensive behaviour, understand how difficult this inherited condition makes their life and feel a sympathy we may not have had at the outset.
RT reviewer: Jane Rackham


BBC4, The Life and Times of El Niño

With concern about the cooling of the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic, here's a timely film about the disruption of currents in the Pacific. Every few years, when the trade winds subside, warm waters roll eastward across the Pacific. The current is named El Niño - the Christ child, because it first appears at Christmas - and it wreaks havoc. But could it grow even more fearsome?
