The Great British Bake Off BBC Two HD, 8pm

Pies and Tarts. The English custard tard has been around for nearly 700 years, and they're still proving to be quite the technical challenge for our bakers. The signature bake is a double-crusted fruit pie, which turns out to be an ordeal for one contender who hates all things fruit. And finally, for showstoppers they need to create a filo pie centrepiece – with their own handmade thin pastry.

Peaky Blinders BBC Two HD, 9pm

Heralded as our version of Boardwalk Empire, this new crime drama is set during the post-war bleakness of industrial Birmingham, 1919. The lavish drama follows the violent family gang called the Peaky Blinders – named after their practice of sewing razor blades in the peaks of their caps – and the man who heads the organisation, Tommy Shelby.

With firearms brought home from the trenches and the threat of a Communist revolution, the time is ripe for the Blinders to rise – even amidst resistance from Churchill's Special Branch forces. Starring Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, Sam Neill and Andy Nyman.

Starring James McAvoy, Rebecca Hall, Alice Eve, Benedict Cumberbatch, Catherine Tate, and Mark Gatiss as UC host Bamber Gascoigne.
