Your round-up of what’s worth seeing this week.

MONDAY

Sex, Stags And Prague: Stacey Dooley Investigates (BBC Three, 9pm)

SOME people visit Prague for the architecture or the history. But for a British groom-to-be out to celebrate his last night of freedom, the city is probably best known for its reputation as a stag party paradise. But is there a dark-side to Prague’s no-holds-barred image?

Stacey Dooley discovers that despite the cops’ best efforts, the large groups of drunken foreigners have also become prey to the city’s criminals.

TOMORROW

Pride of Britain Awards 2013 (STV, 8pm)

GROSVENOR House in London’s Park Lane is the setting for this star-studded event, hosted by Carol Vorderman. Packed with uplifting and moving stories of courage, selflessness and achievement against the odds. Winners include a 10 year-old boy who saved his dad’s life when he collapsed with a heart attack.

WEDNESDAY

Whitechapel (STV, 9pm)

IT’S the last episode of the series, so hopefully a few loose ends will be tied up, not least those surrounding the mysterious footsteps that have been haunting Miles for weeks. His investigation into those, the silty water and the appearance of mould puts him in a direction he never expected. He also urges Chandler to see a psychic while searching for a missing girl - but that only opens up a whole new can of worms.

THURSDAY

Breathless (STV, 9pm)

SET in 1961, this new medical drama focuses on glamorous married couple Otto and Elizabeth Powell. Otto is a brilliant and charismatic surgeon working in a gynaecology unit. He’s convinced he can make positive changes to women’s lives, even if it means breaking the abortion laws. But despite appearing to be perfect, Otto and Elizabeth are hiding a dark secret that could wreck their lives.

FRIDAY

The Graham Norton Show (BBC ONE, 10.35pm)

THE Irish chat show host kicks off a new series with guests Harrison Ford and Jack Whitehall with music and chat from James Blunt.

SATURDAY

Atlantis (BBC ONE, 8.30pm)

JASON’S hasty actions have dire consequences for the trio as they are forced to compete in the parlous sport of bull-leaping.

After crossing a young nobleman, Jason and his friends find themselves at the mercy of King Minos, who declares Poseidon will decide their fate: they are to become bull leapers. To survive they must jump the charging beast.

With their lives on the line, it’s up to Jason to pull his motley team together in this ultimate test of bravery.

SUNDAY

Homeland (Channel 4, 9pm)

HOT on the heels of eleven Emmy nominations for Season 2, Homeland Season 3 opens during the aftermath of the horrific terror attack that decimated the US intelligence apparatus, and prompted a global manhunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist – Nick Brody (Damian Lewis).
