SE­CRET SCOT­LAND WITH SU­SAN CAL­MAN

8PM, CH5 ★★★★

The co­me­dian is un­earthing more hid­den Scot­tish gems, this time in Grampian and the Cen­tral High­lands. She be­gins her jour­ney in Perthshire, vis­it­ing Blair Cas­tle, which has a unique claim to fame as the home of Europe’s only pri­vate army. Then it’s off to the Cairn­gorms to meet Bri­tain’s only wild rein­deer herd, be­fore she con­cludes her tour at Cul­lo­den, the site of Bon­nie Prince Char­lie’s fa­mous de­feat. There, she is given the hon­our of hold­ing Charles’s sword – and learns of her an­ces­tor’s fate on the bloody bat­tle­field.

MOUN­TAIN VETS

8PM, BBC2 ★★★

In the penul­ti­mate episode, vet Jen­nie breathes new life into Beau the re­tired show chicken, while Dar­ren treats a two-day-old lamb. Then, in our fi­nal visit to Mourne, spring has ar­rived, and vet Terry is on a call-out to a lo­cal farm, one of 12 such vis­its he will make ev­ery day as lamb­ing sea­son kicks off in earnest.

GAR­DEN­ERS WORLD

9PM, BBC2 ★★★★

At Long­meadow, Monty Don pre­pares his pond for the sea­son ahead, prunes a climb­ing rose, and cel­e­brates the gar­den as it moves into au­tumn. There’s also a sec­ond chance to en­joy Carol Klein’s au­tum­nal visit to Hid­cote Gar­dens, and we meet a cou­ple whose gar­den has been in­spired by their trav­els in the Far East.

THE GRA­HAM NOR­TON SHOW

10.45PM, BBC1 ★★★★ For­mer Ar­se­nal man­ager Arsene Wenger will be on this week’s show to dis­cuss his new au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, My Life in Red and White.
