A Poem Is …

5.25pm, Disney Junior UK

Return of the series of shorts where celebrities narrate poems with a cartoon accompaniment. It's a laudable attempt to introduce poetry to youngsters, though most little 'uns are already up to their ears in the stuff with nursery rhymes and early years singing sessions. Tonight, Jessica Hynes reads And the 'Roo Jumped Over the Moon by David Henry Souter, with contributions later in the series from David Walliams, Richard Briers, Michelle Dockery and Matt Smith.

In Confidence

8pm, Sky Arts 1

It's a great irony that Sky, often thought of as a destroyer of British TV culture, is currently providing content on its arts channels that the BBC no longer dares to commission. In this series, Laurie Taylor plays the role John Freeman used to in Face To Face,

7pm, BBC2

Unusually, the biggest name on tonight's show is that of one of the reporters: David Attenborough, who presents a digression on the subject of John Craxton, as a new exhibition of the late artist's work opens at Tate Britain. Elsewhere, in a typically bountiful lineup, Mark Kermode speaks to Philip Seymour Hoffman about his directorial debut, Jack Goes Boating, Jacques Peretti meets writer Iain Sinclair, and Michael Smith attempts a Friday-night art crawl in south London.

Andrew Marr's Megacities

8pm, BBC1

Andrew Marr takes us on a tour of the "megacity", the habitat of the future. There are already 21 cities with populations of more than 10 million and plenty more on the way. For the first time in human history, there are now more people across the

7pm, BBC2

Although it sometimes seems as if it never really goes away, the arts strand returns for a new season. Tonight, that means Andrew Graham-Dixon hosting from London's South Bank at the celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the Festival Of Britain. Highlights include Tracey Emin chatting about her first major London retrospective, Love Is What You Want, and producer Danger Mouse explaining why he loves spaghetti western soundtracks. Plus Mark Kermode on videogame La Noire, the opening of Hepworth Wakefield, and Lee "Scratch" Perry.

Hunting Britain's Most Wanted

Martina Cole's The Runaway

9pm, Sky1

It's the big finish tonight and Cathy's Farrah Fawcett wig has got a serious case of disco droop. At least she's got her peripheral vision back. Eamonn dances the dainty line between the police and the Ira – "Either you spy on the Ira for us or go to prison for murder" – and everyone continues to talk in a way that a child would find unconvincing. Needless to say, the denouement comes complete with Alan Cummings' transvestite club singer murdering a Diana Ross tune while a montage of the whole series plays. So dense it's actually sitting in the corner, wearing a pointy hat with a D on it. And the hat is the wrong way up. Julia Raeside

Three In A Bed

8pm, Channel 4

Not content with turning dinner parties, bus trips, marriages and even living in a Yorkshire village into competitive TV, Channel 4 has commissioned a second series of this B&B battle. This time, three couples compete for the plaque declaring them best hosts, with neat-freak Debbie demonstrating her special talent for spotting stray pubes in the shower and local busybody Frances putting on a show at breakfast (she's even got homemade yoghurt). Things get heated when somebody spills red wine on a pristine duvet, but did they do it on purpose? Sian Rowe

Martina Cole's The Runaway

9pm, Sky1

Martina Cole's The Take was a hit for Sky last year, and this follow-up shouldn't leave fans or curious newcomers disappointed. Fourteen-year-old Cathy (Joanna Vanderham
