Rob Burrow: Living With MND

7pm, BBC Two

Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow feels like a prisoner in his own body with motor neurone disease. But, as he tells his kids in this heartstring-tugging documentary, “I’m not giving in until my last breath.” His optimism and humour is infectious, even in the face of the bleakest realities. “I wouldn’t plan for six games away!” he tells his consultant when she asks him to look at planning end-of-life care as he would a game of rugby.

Greta Thunberg: Amol Rajan Interviews

7.30pm, BBC Two

It’s hard to believe that global environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg – a “modern icon” to some and an “alarmist pariah” to others – is still a teenager (she is 19 years old). In this carefully approached but ultimately probing chat, Amol Rajan questions the activist on fracking, greenwashing, entering politics and Elon Musk (which prompts her to burst out laughing). HR

The Great British Bake Off

8pm, Channel 4

Yes, ’tis the season when all manner of ghouls are let loose. But enough about political party conferences. To mark Halloween week, the remaining bakers are tasked with conjuring up an apple cake and, for their showstopper, a spooky piñata (presumably filled with enough sweets to keep every trick or treater in the district happy).

Make Me Prime Minister

9.15pm, Channel 4

Jackie Weaver finally gets the authority she deserves, as she takes on the role of PM in tonight’s episode (but it’s very unfortunate that she chooses purple rosettes, forgetting that it is Ukip’s colour). The teams set off on regional campaigns – and in a mirror of Liz Truss’s recent public relations disaster, this includes local radio interviews. HR

Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable

10pm, Dave

Can Mel Giedroyc and her shamelessly evil assistant Lou Sanders bring out the worst in Stephen Mangan, Josh Pugh and Ellie Taylor? Confessions include kicking a friend after a ouzo binge, behaving in a shameful way on a VIP cruise and being responsible for an elderly celebrity’s missing post. And they’re just the ones that won’t make you wince. Hannah Verdier

Loving (Jeff Nichols, 2016) 11.45pm, BBC Two
Richard and Mildred Loving were a couple in 60s Virginia who defied a state law against interracial marriage and then took their case all the way to the supreme court to legally let them stay together. Jeff Nichols’s moving version of their tale revolves around Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga’s exceptional performances as the devoted pair. He plays Richard, a man of few words who finds himself reluctantly in the spotlight, while Mildred shines with optimism but, being Black and female, is more aware of the dangers they face.
