The Vow

9pm, Sky Documentaries

When does a “multi-level marketing company” become a cult? The self-improvement gurus and purveyors of an “Executive Success Program” known as Nxivm set up shop in 1998 but seemingly crossed the line into something more sinister some time ago. Indeed, its founder Keith Raniere has just begun a lengthy prison sentence for sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit forced labour. This nine-part series sees Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer investigate the group with the help of some high-ranking former members. Phil Harrison

Surviving the Stone Age

7.10pm, Channel 4

Have we gone soft as a species? Or could eight neolithic experts survive the rigours of stone age life? Channel 4 has gone deep into one of Europe’s last remaining wildernesses to conduct this live history experiment, and the scenery is spectacular. Plus, the practical tips may soon come in handy.

Britain’s Most Historic Towns

8.10pm, Channel 4

The engaging Alice Roberts is back for a wander around notable British towns. She begins in Lincoln at the magnificent cathedral, but soon she is immersing herself in the more marginal cultural details of the past, twanging a period crossbow and checking out post-plague sartorial options. PH


9pm, BBC Four

Two more episodes from an international crime drama that has a nice wintry snap to it. Newly formed sleuthing duo Rolf and Claire (Anders W Berthelsen and Charlotte Rampling) flit fretfully between France and Poland as they track the sex-trafficking ring; in the latter, they struggle with some intransigent nuns.

Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance 2020

9.10pm, BBC One

Expect a very different kind of ceremony this year as Huw Edwards presents a pre-recorded event from the Royal Albert Hall. Reminders of the grim present will be everywhere: from the tributes to the nursing profession to the presence of Captain Tom Moore. PH

Show Me the Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall

10.30pm, Sky Arts

Marshall was the prickly photographer who captured the spirit of the 1960s via images of Hendrix, Dylan and Joplin and others, often with a knife tucked in his belt. This clear-eyed portrait of a troubled soul features archive interviews from before his death in 2010. Graeme Virtue

Silence, 11.20pm, BBC Two

Two 17th-century Catholic missionaries (Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield) undertake a Conradian quest from Lisbon to Japan, where their mentor, Liam Neeson’s Ferreira, has reportedly been forced under torture to embrace Buddhism. The silence of their god hangs heavy in Martin Scorsese’s powerful historical epic. Paul Howlett
