C4, 9pm – 24 Hours in Police Custody

Another gripping true crime documentary featuring unprecedented access behind the scenes as police investigate a major crime. It's Saturday night in Luton, and a man is fighting for his life after being shot at point blank range in the chest with a handgun. The attack appears to be a completely unprovoked shooting of a stranger. With a gunman on the loose, the police launch a frantic operation to find the identity of the suspect. DC Colin Knight of Bedfordshire Police's Guns & Gangs unit admits the pressure: 'We have a very dangerous person out there willing to shoot innocent members of the public. The ultimate fear would be if he's done it once he can do it again...' A young woman walks into Luton police station and tells detectives she too has been threatened by the man. 'He caught me by my throat, and put the gun against my head and asked me whether if I was a wolverine or wolf.' Cameras follow every twist and turn of the manhunt as detectives gather evidence to work out what really lies behind the attempted murder of an innocent man, as they try to catch the shooter before he strikes again. This is real-life drama where the facts really do turn out to be stranger than fiction.

M4, 9pm – Matt Baker: Our Farm In The Dales

In this brand-new series, Countryfile and former The One Show presenter Matt Baker, his wife Nicola and their kids Molly and Luke, come to the rescue of his family's organic sheep farm in the Durham hills. Matt still plays a very active role in running the farm he grew up on, but recent circumstances meant his role was about to get a lot more intense. Last summer 2020, Matt's mum Janice was knocked over by some of her beloved Hampshire Down sheep and needed a knee operation. Determined to keep farming, Janice and her husband Mike knew they had to make some vital changes if they wanted to secure the future of the farm. Returning to where he grew up, Matt is faced with both the challenge of keeping the remote farm running and helping his mum overcome injuries from her accident. During the series, we follow three generations of Bakers round the farmhouse table as they make big decisions for the future of the farm, as Matt repairs, reuses and recycles his way through a hefty to do list. They have their work cut out, but can the Baker family make the changes needed so the farm can enter a new chapter? In this first episode, an emotional Janice revisits the scene of her accident for the first time, and she and Matt face up to some of the vital changes they'll have to make in order to secure the future of the farm and make life easier for Janice and Mike. First on the to do list is a much-needed renovation of the miniature donkey stables before pygmy goats Brookie and Bourbon can move in next door. But an attempted escape by the donkeys prompts Matt and Nicola to call in help to building a brand-new donkey-proof fence. In the wake of Janice's accident, the Bakers decide they need to start replacing the existing Hampshire Down flocks with some smaller and more manageable breeds, so Matt and Nicola head to Cumbria to collect some hardy Herdwicks. Back at the farm, Luke and Molly are excited by the prospect of new life on the farm when a visit from Billy the vet confirms that one of Janice's Cairn Terriers will be having puppies. Meanwhile, Matt and Mike turn their attention to an older farm resident in need of some TLC: a rusty 1946 American Dodge that's been left to face the elements. With some gentle persuasion, Mike agrees to let Matt contact a vintage car restoration company in the hope they'll be able to get it up and running once more.

C4, 9pm – Queen Elizabeth And The Spy In The Palace

On 20 November 1979, Anthony Blunt, knight of the realm, a royal courtier for almost 30 years, and one of the finest art historians in the world, was revealed to have been a Soviet secret agent. Although he admitted to betraying the British government during World War II, Blunt maintained that he was always loyal to the crown, which employed him as Surveyor of the King's Pictures - a role that he continued in as Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures under Queen Elizabeth for 27 years. With access to previously classified documents, private diaries and communiques, this documentary reveals the astonishing claim that Blunt provided his KGB handlers with a dossier of damaging information on his royal employers. Documents show how Blunt was personally tasked by King George VI to loot millions of dollars' worth of art treasures from war-ravaged Germany. Could it have been during this mission that Blunt collected evidence of collaboration between senior royals and their German Nazi relatives in the lead-up to war? Leading historians argue that the information Blunt may have gathered on the royals was a powerful weapon to blackmail his employers, explaining why he remained in service for more than a decade after being identified as a spy. The programme also reveals how the threat of Blunt's secret dossier continues to resonate into the 21st century.
