Sylvia Plath: Life Inside the Bell Jar

21:00, BBC Two

"I write because there is a voice inside me that will not be firm," observed American poet Sylvia Plath at 15. Tragically, that voice should have been silent in 1963, when he committed suicide four weeks after the publication of the novel semi -autobiographic The Bell Jar. Teresa Griffiths' film collects reconstructions, unpublished letters and photographs and an interview with Plath's daughter, Frieda Hughes (pictured), to create a touching portrait of the talented author.

WOS Wrestling

17:00, ITV

With the time going through all of 1976, it is right that World of Sport Wrestling is back on the box, evoking those orange days, with barbed wire. Rachel Stringer introduces another wave of overwhelming chaos from characters like Viper and Rampage, while the film star Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies, So Cal Val, adds her two cents. Ali Catterall

A year in the new forest

7pm, channel 4

Spring timing is crucial in the New Forest, where the right conditions are needed because the wild ponies are preparing to give birth and land-dwelling birds like the Dartford silvia lay their eggs. In this uplifting look at life in the forest, the buds open, the trees burst into leaves and life begins again. MB

My family and the Galapagos

8pm, channel 4

Last in the series where Monty Halls and the family of conservatives explore the islands where seals and turtles wander like dogs and cats but whose fauna is threatened, especially sharks. Tonight, Halls is engaged in a gripping mission in the remote arch of Darwin in search of the elusive whale shark. David Stubbs

Cardinal: Blackfly Season

21:00, BBC Four

Now we get some of the background that we were waiting for as the detectives discovered Red's identity courtesy of CCTV footage from the day he appeared at the tavern. Red is not out of the woods, though, as Ray reads the shells and fortune tellers, "He did not cross." The tension rises into a compelling double bill. MB

Oasis Night

9:00 am, Sky Arts

An evening of nostalgia for Gallagher offers There We Were – Now Here We Are, a documentary on the invincible first days when Oasis do what they do best – be interviewed – as well as some trial footage. After that is Live By the Sea, a concert film shot in Southend in 1995. Jack Seale

In a courtyard in Nairobi, little Alia (Aisha Takow) plays, unaware that she is spied on by drones tracking down al-Shabaab terrorists.
