There's a grim drama about grooming, a documentary about Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses, while it's cheerio to Operation Transformation, The Bridge and Pure . . .

Pick of the Day

Three Girls, 10.35pm, RTÉ One

If you missed this when it was first shown on the BBC, here's a chance to catch up with a drama that's a pretty hard watch – but also extremely powerful.

The always superb Maxine Peake stars in this true-life tale of grooming and sexual abuse in Rochdale, Greater Manchester.

The story is told from the viewpoint of three of the victims: fourteen-year-old Holly Winshaw (Molly Windsor), sixteen-year-old Amber Bowen (Ria Zmitrowicz) and her younger sister Ruby (Liv Hill); although the focus later shifts to sexual health worker Sara Rowbotham (Maxine Peake), who became the main whistleblower in the case.

The Satanic Verses: 30 Years On, 9.00pm, BBC Two

The publication of Salman Rushdie's novel The Satanic Verses in 1988 sparked a culture war in Britain between the Muslim community who considered it blasphemous and called for a ban, and those defending it as an expression of freedom of speech.

Now, 30 years on, broadcaster and journalist Mobeen examines the lasting effect the book has had on the Muslim community and how the events of 1989 continue to have an impact today.

Pure, 10.45pm, Channel 4

Not quite 'this year's Fleabag', but this has been a hugely enjoyable dramedy about a Scottish twentysomething with OCD who's trying to get her life sorted in London.

The run ends with a double episode: first up, Helen (Olive Gray), Marnie's (Charly Clive) best friend from Scotland, is visiting London and Marnie worries about the consequences.

Later, Marnie is terrified when she realises she's pushed Shereen (Kiran Sonia Sawar) too far, and starts to become paranoid now that everyone knows about her condition.
