Stripes were in short supply for much of the admirable Lost Land of the Tiger, which, over three nights on BBC1, gave armchair wildlife fans – conditioned by the extravagant splendours of the Attenborough years – a lesson in sitting up a tree waiting for something to happen. Were there tigers to be found here in Bhutan, a rainy stretch of jungle in the foothills of the Himalayas? No one knew. What we did know was that tigers were heading for oblivion, reduced by shrinking habitats and a longstanding fondness among Chinese apothecaries for exotic animal penises.

Excluded turns out to be Dead Poets Society – but with maths. And more real, says Sam Wollaston

Anybody thinking of giving up their safe, well-paid but ultimately unfulfilling job in order to teach should be made to watch Excluded (BBC2). It's what Ian Bately, played by Bryan Dick, has done, for idealistic reasons. He hasn't picked the easiest place to teach – a crumbling, failing inner-city London comprehensive, and it's not going well. "Come on guys, I have asked you for quiet," he pleads pathetically to the class into which he's trying – and failing miserably – to instil some enthusiasm for linear number sequences. One of them, Mark, gives him an especially hard time.

Lost Land Of The Tiger

9pm, BBC1

Tigers are in trouble. The global population has been reduced by 95% over the last century – in less than a decade, they could become extinct. Big cat biologist Dr Alan Rabinowitz thinks their final hope lies with the tiger population in Bhutan in the Himalayas, but no one knows whether the big cats here are thriving or in decline – the kingdom is usually shut off to outsiders. So a crack team made up of a naturalist, scientist, camera operators and tracker dog has been assembled to go into the jungles and mountains to find evidence of the tigers. Part two is on tomorrow.
