There are documentaries about UK politician Boris Johnson and climate protest group Extinction Rebellion, while Better Things and GameFace both return for a second run . . .

Pick of the Day

The Invention of Boris Johnson, 9.00pm, Channel 4

Millions of words have been used to describe Boris Johnson and his suitability to be the UK's next Prime Minister. None is more illuminating than those spoken and written by Johnson himself. To some, he's a charismatic, straight-talking and blessed with a unique ability to connect with the public. To others he's untrustworthy and incompetent - unfit for the highest public office. How better to judge him than by a forensic examination of the things he has put his name to? As he competes with Jeremy Hunt to become UK Prime Minister, this documentary sifts through hours of forgotten archive interviews and newspaper columns to build a compelling picture of the man and his track record, largely in his own words.

Meanwhile, Marcella continues life coaching sessions with her therapist (Karl Theobald) and his student Frances (Eliot Salt), visits her mother (Pauline McLynn) and finds her ex, Simon (Dustin Demri-Burns), in a compromising position.

Our Cops in the North, 9.00pm, BBC One

In the first episode, police in Sunderland come to the aid of a 70-year-old who has been robbed at knife-point by masked assailants, who have made off with £15,000 in cash.

In a secluded hamlet where sheep outnumber people, PC Curtis Ritchie investigates the theft of a vintage Land Rover Defender, which turns out to be one of many vehicles stolen on the same night.

Extinction Rebellion: Last Chance to Save the World? 10.55pm, BBC One

Reporter Ben Zand follows climate-change protest group Extinction Rebellion for four months, as they prepare for 11 days of protest, taking over and occupying various locations in London.

The film also focuses on three young people who have been inspired to join and lead the protests. Zand speaks to Roger Hallam, the leader of the movement, who has spent years academically researching tactics for social change.

He also challenges Hallam on his methods and asks whether it is justifiable to encourage young people to break the law.
