Our round-up of what’s on the box this week.


Prey (ITV, 9pm)

TIME isn’t on Farrow’s side as this gripping drama reaches its exciting climax.

He’s now struggling to stay one step ahead of his former police colleagues, trying to keep an eye on what they’re up to at the same time as he desperately attempts to find the evidence he needs to prove his innocence.

Reinhardt thinks she knows where to find Farrow, but her investigation takes a blow when Devlin backs away, unable to deal with the guilt he feels about what has happened to his ‘friend’.


Fogle’s Animal Clinic (Channel 5, 8pm)

Adventurer Ben Fogle is temporarily hanging up his walking boots, ice pick, and rowing oars to set up camp at the University of Liverpool’s Leahurst campus, which is home to one of the UK’s top veterinary colleges.

Ben is going behind the scenes at the campus’s state of the art operating theatres to follow the daily dramas that come with treating the 10,000 sick animals brought in every year.


Episodes (BBC2, 10pm)

The last time we caught up with the fictionalised version of Matt LeBlanc featured in this sitcom, his affair with TV boss Merc’s wife had just become public knowledge.

When we meet him again, his life is in tatters, and not just because of that indiscretion.


Wanted: A Family Of My Own (ITV, 9pm)

Quite frankly, we haven’t got over the emotional turmoil we suffered while watching last week’s episode.

This week single mum Clair wants to add to her brood of three by adopting nine-month-old Tom, who has hearing difficulties.


Masterchef: The Finals (BBC1, 8.30pm)

After an eight-week competition, the finalists must push themselves to the very limit one last time.

But how much have they learned?

We’ll soon find out, as they have three hours to demonstrate what sort of cooks they have become.


World Cup Films 1930-1954 (BBC2, 9pm)

An in-depth documentary looking back on the first five World Cup tournaments.
The documentary is part of FIFA’s 14 World Cup films – all of which will be shown in the run-up to this summer’s tournament – which turn the spotlight on the seminal moments of the World Cup.


BBC Young Musician: the final (BBC1, 8.30pm)

THE final of BBC Young Musician 2014, in full from the Usher Hall in Edinburgh.

Three instrumentalists remain in the UK’s leading contest for young classical musicians.

The finalists perform concertos of their choice – accompanied by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Kirill Karabits – before the winner of BBC Young Musician 2014 is announced, ten years after Scottish classical violinist Nicola Benedetti won the title.
