Air Crash In­ves­ti­ga­tions, 8.30pm, Seven ( Syd­ney and Bris­bane only) The Boe­ing 737 is one of the most pop­u­lar pas­sen­ger jets in the world. It has car­ried more than 12 bil­lion peo­ple around the globe. But in 1991, some­thing hap­pened on a 737 trav­el­ling from Den­ver to Colorado Springs that sent shud­ders through the avi­a­tion world. The plane sud­denly rolled then spi­ralled out of con­trol, smash­ing into the ground and killing all on board. It took 10 years, the long­est crash in­ves­ti­ga­tion in avi­a­tion his­tory, to un­der­stand what hap­pened. Cold Case, 8.30pm, Nine Jan­uary, 1996: a man re­flects with his fam­ily on a re­cent trip to Rwanda. His es­tranged mother turns up un­ex­pect­edly and, fol­low­ing a mas­sive power cut and some pow­er­ful bitch­ing in the dark, she is found float­ing face down in the fam­ily swim­ming pool next morn­ing. Jump to the present. When the house is sold for the first time, scratch marks are found un­der the div­ing board. En­ter De­tec­tive Rush ( Kathryn Mor­ris, pic­tured). The Un­teach­ables, 9.30pm, UKTV Some 140,000 chil­dren are ex­pelled from Bri­tish schools each year. Is the sys­tem to blame or are th­ese kids sim­ply un­teach­able? A man in a field in Suf­folk is be­hav­ing oddly. But he’s got 16 trou­ble­some teenagers eat­ing out of his hand. What is his se­cret? Imag­ine 16 foul- mouthed Vicky Pol­lards in the same class ( or field) and you be­gin to get a sense of what this is all about. Ed­u­ca­tion revo­lu­tion, or ex­pen­sive in­dul­gence?
