Byline: BRIAN McIVERS

The Homecoming

Channel 4, 9.00pm

AS part of the Forgotten Children series, this is one of those documentaries that will have you in tears, as we see a moving tale of an orphaned girl trying to trace her roots.

At the age of four, Rachel Roberts was placed in a Doncaster children's home.

Now, 30 years later, armed with nothing more than a solitary photo from the Seventies and some distant memories, Rachel is going in search of some of the other children from the home to find out where their lives have taken them.

There are surprises around every corner as she meets a long-lost member of her family as well as unearthing some astonishing stories from her former housemates.

Lily Allen At Radio 1's Big Weekend

BBC Three, 7.00pm

IT'S easy to forget that the party girl star and darling of the paparazzi is also a cracking singer and great performer, but she is the main attraction of this show tonight.

BBC Radio 1 DJs Edith Bowman and Reggie Yates present highlights of Lily Allen's set at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Swindon, which took place last week at Lydiard Park.

The programme also features highlights from other artists performing at the festival, including Ne-Yo, The Prodigy and The Enemy..

The Mentalist

Five, 9.00pm

PATRICK Jane may not have as much glamour as his life as a TV psychic/mind reader conman, but he can still get the excitement going in his work with the California coppers.

The brain bender teams up with the California Bureau of Investigations once again, when years of police training, education and expensive technology all prove useless in the search for a double murder suspect.

Tonight his incredible powers of deduction lead him to suspect bent coppers may be behind a shooting.

Property Watch

BBC Two, 8.00pm

THE house market is in a slump, people are scared to buy and mortgages are harder to come by thanks to the rocket scientist banking wizards who bet on all our money then lost it.

As this short but interesting series comes to a conclusion, presenters Kate Silverton and Justin Rowlatt speculate on what happens next.

With the whole country hoping and waiting for things to bounce back, they ask when will it return to health?
