The TVweek: Sunday 23rd - Friday 28th November 2014

Sunday
9.00pm Remember Me BBC1 - First of a three-part contemporary ghost story set in Yorkshire. Tom Parfitt's arrival at a local retirement home leads to an eerie unexpected death. Disillusioned cop Rob Fairholme can't find answers, but 18-year-old care worker Hannah is drawn to Tom's house and mystery surrounding him. Michael Palin stars.
Monday
2.15pm The Doctor Blake Mysteries BBC1 - Series 2 of the Australian crime drama.
9.00pm Posh People: Inside Tatler BBC2 - Documentary which goes behind the scenes at Tatler, the world's oldest magazine. The publication has been reporting on the lives of Britain's most privileged and powerful for 300 years. Tatler not only documents but also dictates the social calendar of Britain's elite. With an archive full of society's movers and shakers, being pictured in its pages has long been a rite of passage for Britain's ruling classes.
9.00pm Skint Channel 4 - Skint returns for a new series telling the intimate stories of people living with the devastating effects of long-term unemployment in one of Britain's most deprived areas. Filmed for over a year in the East Marsh area of Grimsby, this powerful and sympathetic observational documentary series is the follow-up to last year's Grierson Documentary Award-nominated series, which was filmed in Scunthorpe.
Tuesday
9.00pm The Paedophile Next Door Channel 4 - Historian and acclaimed social documentary maker Steve Humphries sets out to discover why all the elaborate policies and legislation put in place to protect children from sexual abuse have failed. He discovers some radical new solutions proposed by an increasing number of child protection experts, which challenge our deep-rooted attitudes and emotional reactions to paedophiles. 'They're not monsters with horns and tails, but ordinary blokes,' says senior lecturer Dr Sarah Goode, and this makes them so dangerous and difficult to identify. Controversially, Dr Goode believes that the most promising way to reduce the number of child abuse cases is to encourage paedophiles who have not yet targeted children to 'come out' and receive treatment.
Wednesday
10.00pm Confessions of a Doctor Channel 4 - Over the last 50 years Britain has changed almost beyond recognition. Police officers patrolled our streets exuding power and respect, teachers could enforce their authority with the belt and the cane, men in the main were in charge in the workplace, and doctor always knew best. With the onset of increasingly strict regulations, health and safety rules and political correctness, this three-part series, Confessions Of, looks at whether many of our professionals have lost the respect and authority they once held so dear and took for granted. With surprising, candid, shocking and personal confessions, ordinary coppers, GPs and secretaries lift the lid on their working lives.
10.00pm Ten Years Old and Living on the Poverty Line Five - Documentary that follows three families coping with day-to-day life under very challenging financial circumstances as seen from the point of view of a child within each family. Ten-year-old Lyndsey who sleeps in a room with no curtains and 11-year-old Paige has to visit a friend's house when she wants a hot shower. Eight-year-old Aniya hopes that her Mum will find a job so that for her next birthday she might get a present.
