PICKS OF THE DAY

Daily Express - - TELEVISION EXPRESS -

Re­al­ity: The Ap­pren­tice, 9pm, BBC1

Those re­spon­si­ble for putting to­gether the group of can­di­dates on this show each year al­ways seem to strike the right bal­ance be­tween hope­less folk who should be nowhere near the con­test, overly con­fi­dent mo­tor mouths and those with ac­tual busi­ness acu­men. Tonight, the re­main­der of this year’s gag­gle have to cre­ate ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paigns for a new car, split­ting into two teams – one half pro­duc­ing a TV ad and the other cre­at­ing a dig­i­tal bill­board.

Doc­u­men­tary: The Moors Mur­der­ers Left Me For Dead 10pm, Chan­nel 5

This two-part doc­u­men­tary fea­tures the har­row­ing tes­ti­monies of peo­ple like Terry West, Terry Kil­bride, Tommy Rati­gan, David Gray and Bernard King (all above) who came into con­tact with and man­aged to escape from Moors mur­derer Ian Brady in the 1960s. Rel­a­tives and friends of Brady and Myra Hind­ley’s vic­tims also share their mem­o­ries.

Drama: Peaky Blinders, 9pm, BBC2

Here it is, the long-awaited fourth se­ries of Peaky Blinders. Al­most 18 months af­ter the con­clu­sion of se­ries three, Tommy Shelby and the gang are back for six brand new episodes. Tommy re­ceives a strange let­ter on Christ­mas Eve 1925 and it dawns on him that his en­tire fam­ily are in dan­ger of dec­i­ma­tion, de­spite his new-found and un­prece­dented le­git­i­macy. As the en­emy closes in, he flees his coun­try house and re­turns to the only safe place he knows – Small Heath, Birm­ing­ham, where the fam­ily must find a way to put dif­fer­ences aside, take up arms and fight for sur­vival. Cil­lian Mur­phy (left, with young Jen­son Clarke as Charles Shelby) is at his brilliant best as he re­turns to the role of Tommy.

An­i­mals: The Se­cret Life Of The Zoo, 8pm, C4

Last night we got to take a sneak peak at the se­cret lives of four year olds and tonight we get the chance to do some­thing sim­i­lar with the an­i­mal kingdom. In the first of a new se­ries, Black rhino Ki­tani (above left) is due to give birth at Ch­ester Zoo and help swell the ranks of this en­dan­gered species. But hav­ing lost three pre­vi­ous calves, it is a wor­ry­ing time and the keep­ers are con­cerned things are not go­ing to plan.

Soap: Em­merdale, 7pm, ITV

When mak­ing a big de­ci­sion, peo­ple should al­ways con­sider the ram­i­fi­ca­tions of their ac­tions on oth­ers. Sadly, Paddy and Chas for­get all about that as they agree to tell every­one they are to­gether. What about the im­pact the news will have on poor Rhona (Zoe Henry, right)? Else­where, Pol­lard is eva­sive when pressed over the plans for the golf course while Moira is on edge as look­ing af­ter Isaac on her own be­gins to take its toll.
