HIGHLIGHTS.

Tonight Robin Hood, BBC One Wales, 6.45pm Keith Allen's Sheriff of Nottingham is back with a bang for the concluding episode of this muscular retelling of the age-old tale. Expect lots of pyrotechnic and special effects trickery.

Tomorrow Revelations: How to Find God, Channel 4, 7pm Cardiff-born writer and broadcaster Jon Ronson, below, takes on the task of examining a new trend on Christianity, an introductory course called Alpha. Can it make a believer out of a confirmed agnostic in just a few weeks as is claimed?

Monday Inside Nature's Giants, Channel 4, 9pm How the elephant got its trunk, the giraffe got its neck and the whale got so gosh darn big.

Evolutionary biologist Sir Richard Dawkins will be helping veterinary scientist Mark Evans puzzle his way through the process.

Tuesday Word's Best Diet, ITV1 Wales, 8pm Part two of the dietary challenge sees the celebs jetting off to Japan, the Mediterranean and India to find out which has the healthiest cuisine.

Wednesday Skins, Channel 4, 11pm In case you missed it on digital channel E4, the third series of the teen drama hits terrestrial. A good watch, if you're not offended by casual drug taking, louche behaviour and comedy gangsters.

Thursday Psychoville, BBC Two Wales, 10pm This slow-burning horror comedy, from the makers of the League of Gentlemen, is getting better week by week. Expect more eBay-based drama, deranged clowns and a mother-son murdering team in this latest installment.

Friday Horne and Corden, BBC Two Wales, 10pm More comedy as the patchy-but-generally-worthwhile sketch show gets a terrestrial slot. Worth it for Ricky Gervais' cameo alone.
