BRITAIN'S OLDEST CROOKS ITV, 9pm Many of us love the thought of retirement, a time when we are allowed sit back and relax, and take time to hang out with our families and friends. But, it seems, there are those who prefer to spend these supposedly carefree days pulling off heists of all different kinds. According to this documentary, the over-60s are now the fastest-growing group behind bars. Visions of Monty Python's Hell's Grannies may now be appearing in your mind, but this is no laughing matter. Here we learn what compels these OAP crooks, who have committed everything from shoplifting and fraud to breaching their ASBOs. What causes them to behave in such a way at a time of life when they could be putting their feet up? And when the average cost of locking up a pensioner is almost PS40,000 a year, is sending them to prison always the best solution? THE LAST KINGDOM BBC2, 9pm Alfred and Uhtred are united as they leave the marshlands, knowing they must get word to Saxon forces to assemble and fight a decisive battle for the future of Wessex and England.

Treachery, deception and heartache follow as the warriors fight to save their land - but at what personal cost to Uhtred? Alexander Dreymon stars in the epic medieval drama charting the battle between Vikings and Saxons, based on the book by Bernard Cornwell.
