Irish psychotherapist Stella O'Malley hosts a special about trans kids, 9-1-1 continues to entertain, while there are documentaries on diverse subjects such as the contraceptive pill and Robin Hood . . .

Pick of the day

Trans Kids: it's Time to Talk, 10.00pm, Channel 4

Irish psychotherapist and author Stella O'Malley reflects on the huge rise in numbers of young British people embarking on gender transition, through the prism of her own experience in her youth with gender identity issues.

As a child during the 1970s and 80s, she was convinced she should be a boy, but now O'Malley's a married woman with two children. She examines how the experiences and options open to transgender children today compare with her own childhood, and asks what person she might now be, had these choices been available to her.

She also talks to children, parents and academics about the contentious issue.

In an episode called Commitment, it's all out war. The United States's invasion of Colombia has begun and as Vulture Team moves to capture Tavo, the Nathan James finds itself fighting Tavo's battleship.

Limitless: Season 1, Sky Box Sets & NOW TV

Based on the film starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, this series tells the story of down-on-his luck New York musician Brian Finch (Jake McDorman).

He develops superhuman abilities after taking a mysterious drug called NZT, but when Brian’s friend is found murdered, the FBI (led by Jennifer Carpenter‘s Agent Rebecca Harris) believe he’s behind the killing.

Wanting to clear his name, super-smart Brian brings Harris evidence of a conspiracy to kill those with NZT, and the two characters quickly establish a prickly, cautious partnership.

It's better than The Last Ship, but that's nothing to boast about.
