Nick Knowles meets the Sweet family in Weston-super-Mare, whose three children have all been diagnosed with multiple rare illnesses and will soon be full-time wheelchair-users.

Alex Scott: The Future of Women’s Football, 10:50pm, BBC 1

The growth of women's football has been rapid in recent years, and in a new BBC film, former England player Alex Scott looks at what's next.

Christian, 10pm, Sky Atlantic

This new Sky Atlantic drama follows a man who lives in a desolate neighbourhood on the outskirts of Rome and has the power to cure people with his hands. Starring Edoardo Pesce, we’re hoping this Italian-language drama is just as good as Sky hits Gomorrah and Mad Dog.


WEDNESDAY 27th

The Great, 10pm, Channel 4

The Emmy-nominated drama returns for a second series, which now sees Catherine taking the Russian throne. Series two kicks off four months after Catherine launched a coup against her husband, gaining the upper hand in her war against Peter. The fact that he is deeply in love with Catherine and their unborn child does little to dissuade her from taking his throne. Stars Elle Fanning, Nicholas Hoult and Phoebe Fox.


THURSDAY 28th

The ceremony will end with the Competitors' Oath and the finale to the Queen's Baton Relay, which has travelled 90,000 miles around every nation and territory in the Commonwealth.


FRIDAY 29th
