My Life: Home Grown Boys

4.30pm, BBC1

This charming documentary profiles a group of inner-city boys who spend their summer holidays growing and selling veg from a site in London's King's Cross. Land is provided by the council and start-up funds are obtained from a local charity, but these kids otherwise have autonomy over their project, selecting seeds and offering their wares to some high-profile businesses, including Eurostar and the Guardian. With a window of six weeks in which to grow and sell their product, the young entrepreneurs are under significant pressure, but the boys turn a significant profit. Gwilym Mumford

It's a good week for … Clever creatures

3 February 2012 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

New "science" show Super Smart Animals launches this week (Wed, 8pm, BBC1) featuring Liz Bonnin travelling the world to meet the planet's cleverest creatures. Qualified biologist Bonnin presents YouTube hamster clips dressed up as scientific experiment. Look, a skateboarding dog! A fish on Mastermind! Guaranteed to keep super dumb humans yuck-yucking at their intellectual overlords for the duration.

Meanwhile on Wild India (Mon, 8pm, Nat Geo Wild) Sir Attenborough gives us a guided tour of India's wildlife with special focus this week on elephants. A new baby elephant runs the gamut of drought, fire and flood in its first six months, not to mention the Bengal tiger and King Cobra who both want to eat it. The massive adult elephants stand in a tight circle around it like minders keeping fans away from Prince. You can also enjoy a boa constrictor throttling and ingesting its furry prey like Denise Welch meeting one of One Direction. »
