Nigel Slater's Simple Suppers Ep 5/6

Wednesday 7 October
7.30-8.00pm BBC ONE

Sticky chicken with lemon and honey, grilled prawns with yoghurt and mint and pork meatballs with anchovies are on the menu this week, as food writer Nigel Slater creates a week's worth of simple but delicious meals that provide a real contrast on the plate.

Whether it's sweet and sour, hot and cold or spicy and cool, the right contrasting flavour combinations can create fantastic results.

Most people don't have time to follow cookery books and, in this series, there's no need to write down complicated recipes – Nigel's unflustered style makes these feasts easy to remember.

In tonight's penultimate programme of the series, Nigel visits busy mother-of-two Kat, who shares his passion for growing vegetables in her London garden.

Nigel Slater's Simple Suppers is part of the BBC's Dig-In campaign which, throughout spring and summer, has been urging new growers to get digging, offering free seed starter packs, advice and information at The campaign is now moving from plot to pot as the focus shifts to cooking lovely fresh produce.

Criminal Justice Ep 3/5

Wednesday 7 October
9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE (Schedule addition 23 September)

A few months have passed and Juliet goes into labour four weeks early while she's on remand, in the third episode of Peter Moffat's thrilling drama. Her daughter is born in hospital under prison guard. The baby gives Juliet a renewed sense of purpose but her future is not looking any less bleak.

Meanwhile, DCI Faber visits Joe's clerk, Saul, who clearly has a very biased view of events and would like to see Juliet convicted.

Dr Dominic Rose confides to Norma that his family is coming under increasing strain due to Ella's worsening mental state and they will not be able to foster her baby sister.

With Joe dead, Jack and Anna can use provocation as a defence – but only if Juliet gives them some details about what happened between them.

Saul, in the meantime, seems to be trying to groom Ella against her mother.

Norma tells Juliet there are no mother and baby unit places free so her baby will have to be fostered. At the last minute, a place becomes available and Juliet is delighted. However, a care plan has to be agreed for the baby's future. At the Family Court, Juliet is quizzed on her suitability to mother, considering her record of violence. Jack hopes that this experience and the court decision will make Juliet realise she will have to open up at the criminal trial if they are to save her from conviction and from losing her children.

DCI Faber and DI Sexton argue about the case once more. Sexton cannot countenance the possibility that Juliet might be freed and allowed to keep her children.

Juliet is played by Maxine Peake; DCI Faber by Denis Lawson; Saul by Eddie Marsan; Dr Dominic Rose by Rupert Procter; Norma by Nadine Marshall; Ella by Alice Sykes; Jack by Sophie Okonedo; Anna by Zoe Telford; and DI Sexton by Steven Mackintosh.

Roy – Roy Pulls A Face Ep 10/13

Wednesday 7 October
4.30-5.00pm CBBC

It's Sunday lunchtime in the O'Brien house and Roy is making faces at Becky, who has decided to become vegetarian, as the comic adventures of a cartoon boy living in the real world continue. Becky's decision, however, means that the family have to make do with a nut roast instead of their usual joint of meat.

Roy's superstitious grandmother warns him that if he pulls faces and the wind changes he might be stuck like that forever. Roy takes little notice until a sudden gust of wind forces the door open. Lo and behold, Roy's cartoon face gets stuck in a massive inane grin.

His school friends rally round, using a series of enterprising methods to try to reverse the process but to no avail. With the annual school photo looming, will Roy be able to restore his face in time, or will his ridiculous expression adorn the walls of Ballyfermot School for years to come?

Roy is voiced by Scott Graham, Becky is played by Martha Byrne and Grandma Rose by Maura Shannon.
