Turner Prize 2015
7.30pm, Channel 4

“Like calling bubblegum caviar.” That was the opinion of Billy Childish, in 2000, of the “ongoing national joke” that is the Turner Prize. Now in its 31st year, the divisive jamboree shows no signs of stopping. In fact, this year promises to stretch the idea of what constitutes art even further: among the works in contention are Janice Kerbel’s Doug – an operatic musical piece in nine songs for six voices. Lauren Laverne hosts the live coverage from the Tramway in Glasgow where Sonic Youth’sSonic Youth’s Kim Gordon names the winner. Ali Catterall

London Spy
9pm, BBC2

The dark, stylish, increasingly odd London Spy reaches its final curtain, as Ben Whishaw’s Danny closes in on the truth about his murdered lover, former MI6 collaborator Alex. After cracking the code in the USB drive, he’s now armed with Alex’s “lies analysis” theory, the ultimate lie detector, which he had hoped would “change the world” rather than get him killed. The truth of what happened on the night of his murder is revealed in shocking fashion. Ben Arnold

Las Vegas With Trevor McDonald
9pm, ITV

What is it like to live and work in the “shadow capital” of the US? Over two documentaries, Trevor McDonald meets some of those who have made Las Vegas home. The dark side of Sin City soon comes to the fore as ex-sex worker Annie Lobert, who now runs a safehouse for those trying to escape violent pimps, discusses her experiences. Elsewhere, McDonald joins bondsman Jon Foster on a mission to bring in a minor criminal who has jumped bail, and chats with a mellow Mike Tyson. Jonathan Wright

Hunting the Paedophiles: Inside the National Crime Agency
9pm, Channel 4

A stated aim of the NCA is to show the public that crime doesn’t pay, seizing assets of organised criminals and winning a hearts-and-minds battle. One of director Keith Bristow’s priorities is cybercrime, and this documentary focuses on one such case, detailing how the NCA worked across international borders to track the perpetrators of a crime that lured teenage boys into sending indecent images of themselves to a threatening online abuser.

Storyville: The Six Day War – Censored Voices
9pm, BBC4

A fine addition to our understanding of the 1967 conflict between Israel and its Arab neighbours – a war that, to some extent, the Middle East has been fighting ever since. The film is built around a series of previously censored interviews, fully released for the first time here, conducted with Israeli soldiers back from the battlefields. The interviewers were a group of kibbutzniks led by a young Amos Oz, at the beginning of his career as his country’s literary conscience. Andrew Mueller

Reggie Yates’ Extreme UK: Gay and Under Attack
9pm, BBC3

Yates delivers a typically measured exploration of ingrained homophobia in black and Asian communities. The title overstates how distressing it is: we’re talking attitudes and assumptions rather than violence, although that’s no consolation to the young adults Yates meets who have been spurned by their families. Indoctrination by religion or tradition throws up anomalies, such as a DJ at a night for gay people of colour who still plays homophobic dancehall records. Jack Seale

Crackanory
10pm, Dave

The sadistic storytelling series returns with a new selection of fables for adults. Paul Whitehouse narrates the tale of a “fully immersive battle re-enactment” that inevitably gets out of hand. Next, Carrie Fisher’s soothing presence contrasts with a story about a young couple who check into a mysterious B&B. Why is it the only place in the town with a vacancy? It’s not just because of the three-minute shower rule. The twisted lovechild of Jackanory and Tales of the Unexpected delivers darkness and laughs. Hannah Verdier

Film Choice

Play (Ruben Ostlund, 2011) 1.55am, Channel 4

Swedish film-maker Ruben Östlund’s uncomfortable drama is based on a real-life case of teenage bullying in Gothenburg. A gang of black youngsters coaxes white kids into their orbit and proceeds to humiliate and rob them. It came in for much critical flak, but the main target appears to be the ineffective, overly-PC adults. Paul Howlett
