The Bank that Almost Broke Britain, 9.00pm, BBC Two

Although we suffered more than most, Ireland wasn't the only country to indulge in a bank bailout following the global financial crash in 2008.

This documentary tells the extraordinary story of how a small Scottish bank briefly grew to become the biggest in the world before collapsing and triggering the largest financial bail-out in British history.

It focuses on a single day, 7 October 2008, when the Royal Bank of Scotland collapsed and almost took the entire UK banking system down with it. This dramatic financial thriller, set over 24 hours, is intercut with the story of the amazing rise and shocking fall of RBS.

The Truth About Harry Quebert Affair, 9.00pm, Sky Witness

The plot's Brexit daft, with former Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey in the eponymous role as a novelist charged with the murder of a teenage girl found buried in his garden alongside his manuscript - but it's still very watchable.

And if you dip your toe tonight and like it, you can catch up on Sky.

In this fifth episode of ten, Marcus - with new evidence linking Nola Kellergan to Elijah Stern - looks to Sergeant Gahalowood for help in investigating the suspicious circumstances surrounding Nola's murder.

Also, having agreed with his publisher to turn his investigation into a book, Marcus visits Harry at the prison for his blessing. While there, Harry reflects on his first meeting with Elijah Stern, and his equally suspicious chauffeur, Luther Caleb.
