WEEKEND: WEEKEND TV: SUNDAY TV.
State of Play BBC1, 9pm
IT isn't often a TV programme featuring journalists can be recommended but BBC1's State of Play is an exception.
The compelling conspiracy thriller comes to an exciting conclusion tonight with the focus on Cal McCaffrey (John Simm) investigating the death of an MP's mistress.
We already know the trail leads back to an oil company that paid the woman to leak information gleaned from her lover, but there is plenty more to come.
And there's the whole love triangle thing that holds the key to everything.
If the plot has had you totally flummoxed up to now you can rely on the excellent journalistic skills of Cal and co to unravel it and explain all.
Best news for fans is that a spin-off series is planned.
Time Team Big Dig C4, 5.35pm
IT may be an unlikely hit but Time Team has turned us into a nation of diggers. C4 starts a week-long special Big Dig to celebrate the team's 10 years on the telly and launches a live archaeological dig at 1,000 sites across Britain.
Tonight's opener looks at a community dig in Great Easton, Leicestershire, as locals get their hands dirty to discover more about the past of their village.
And all week other communities will be joining in to search for history in their own back yards. The regular experts keep a watchful eye on proceedings.
