I SPY

Confessions of an Undercover Cop

Channel 4, 9pm Not quite the 'Carry On' show the title might suggest. This fascinating documentary follows undercover police officer Mark Kennedy (below), who infiltrated the environmental movement and Europe's left-wing extremist political groups and spent eight years there. In the process he lost his wife and children, and the friends he made during his time with the protesters. He discusses the consequences of getting too close to those he infiltrated.

Natural World

RTE2, 7.30pm Unwind and get a taste of Africa with this documentary charting life along the Zambezi River, set against the spectacular backdrop of the Victoria Falls and told through the experiences of a local angler, who has fished the waters for 69 years.
