Billy Monger’s Big Red Nose Day Challenge

9pm, BBC One

It’s fair to describe racing driver Billy Monger’s 140-mile challenge as a gruelling one. Monger, who lost both legs in an accident, spent four days walking, kayaking and cycling 140 miles for charity and this special programme shows all the highs and lows he faces with determination.

The Secret Life of Sewage

9pm, BBC Two

Faeces? Yes please! This follow-up to the applauded Secret Life of Landfill sees Dr George McGavin and Dr Zoe Laughlin get their hands dirty on a more than metaphorical level as they explore sewage – a source of renewable energy that could also be used to power healthcare breakthroughs.

She made her stage debut at the age of two and achieved global pop stardom in the 70s as part of sister act the Nolans.

Unforgiven (Clint Eastwood, 1992) 9pm, TCM Movies
Clint Eastwood’s Will Munny, a gunman turned pig farmer, is tempted to do one last job. He sets out for Big Whiskey, where brutal Sheriff Daggett (Gene Hackman) rules with an iron fist. It’s a harsh, brooding western that questions the old myths and the genre itself. Paul Howlett
