Murder In The Alps (BBC One, 9pm)

JUST over a year ago, in an isolated forest car park miles from anywhere in the French Alps, a British family were attacked.

The bodies of Saad al-Hilli, his wife Iqbal, her mother Suhaila al-Allaf – as well as French cyclist Sylvain Mollier – were found. To this day, a number of questions concerning the killings remain unanswered.

In an attempt to find out a bit more about the events of that terrible day, reporter Jane Corbin visits the scene of the crime in Lake Annecy.

TUESDAY

Atlantis (BBC One, 8.15pm)
