Cat­a­lyst: Don’t Die Young, 8pm, ABC The first of a six- part BBC se­ries about our vi­tal or­gans fo­cuses on the kid­neys. Meet Alice Roberts, an anatomist who can’t wait to start cut­ting up kid­neys to show us how they work. What can we do to look af­ter our vi­tal or­gans? Fast paced and funky, this show will teach you what your kid­neys are for and how to main­tain them in first- class work­ing or­der. Law & Or­der: Crim­i­nal In­tent, 9.30pm, Ten Fulla T, a rap­per who en­cour­ages his fans to re­port crimes when they see them ( right!), is mur­dered out­side a ra­dio sta­tion. ‘‘ It’s not about bein’ a snitch,’’ he raps, ‘‘ it’s about doin’ what’s good, and livin’ right.’’ Talk about fa­mous last words. Logan ( Chris Noth, pic­tured) and Wheeler ( Ju­lianne Ni­chol­son) are forced to work with a de­tec­tive from the gang unit. When key wit­nesses start dy­ing, they be­gin to won­der what side of the law their new mate is on. The Kid­nap­ping of El­iz­a­beth Smart, 9.35pm, ABC A mil­lion miles from the slick pre­dictabil­ity of Dick Wolf’s Law & Or­der fran­chise, this is the true story of the kid­nap­ping of El­iz­a­beth Smart, a 14- year- old who was ab­ducted at knife­point from her bed­room in her Salt Lake City home in 2002. Emo­tional fam­ily mem­bers re­count the in­ci­dent and the long, painstak­ing strug­gle to keep the in­ves­ti­ga­tion alive. Nine months later, El­iz­a­beth was dis­cov­ered, veiled in white and walk­ing with her cap­tors on the out­skirts of the city.
