Thursday 13 October
9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE

Ronan Bennett's taut and gripping four-part conspiracy thriller Hidden, starring Philip Glenister, continues on BBC One, directed by Niall MacCormick.

With his office blown to pieces, Harry is determined to find out who Gina Hawkes is. He gets his friend and accomplice, Frank Hanna, to break into her doctor's office to access her files. But when Hanna is chased out by armed heavies he realises they are caught up in something far more dangerous than they originally thought.

With no new leads, Harry thinks Gina's barrister, Nigel Fountain QC, might be able to unlock the mystery. However, he is unforthcoming, leaving only the imprisoned Stevie Quirke to supply any clues. Harry goes to visit him but what he finds rattles him. In one last desperate bid, Harry tracks Gina to Paris, only to be confronted by a past he thought he had long since left behind.

Harry Venn is played by Philip Glenister, Gina Hawkes by Thekla Reuten, Frank Hanna by Richard Dormer, Sir Nigel Fountain by David Suchet, Steve Quirke by Paul Ritter, Elspeth Verney by Anna Chancellor, Paul Hillman by Mark Flitton, Fenton Russell by Thomas Craig and Alexander Wentworth by Bertie Carvel.

Mixed Britannia Ep 2/3

Thursday 13 October
9.00-10.00pm BBC TWO

Covering the period 1940-1965, the second film of this three-part series exploring the story of Britain's mixed-race community sees the Second World War creating a miniature baby boom of "brown babies" born to local British women and black American GIs.

Some were born to women who had husbands fighting abroad, others to women whose families would not countenance a mixed-race child in their house. George Alagiah hears the story of his brother-in-law, Tony Martin, who was one of the many mixed-race babies given up for adoption.

The film also tells the tragic story of the British-Chinese children in Liverpool whose Chinese seamen fathers were repatriated, and explores how, with post-war mass immigration, mixed couples, once rare and exotic, were becoming more common; and how our society finally witnessed the first interracial kiss on British television.

Deadly 360 Crocodiles Ep 5/13

Thursday 13 October
5.15-5.45pm CBBC

Steve Backshall delves deep into the world of predators and their prey in this latest episode of Deadly 360.

Using his specially equipped Deadly HQ studio, and touch-screen-style interactions, 3D models and stunning footage, Steve investigates the hidden facts that influence each hunt carried out by the featured predators, in an attempt to uncover which is likely to succeed and which will fail.

This week's predators are all crocodiles. The Nile crocodile tries to surprise an unsuspecting group of wildebeest; the acrobatic caiman hunts the world's most dangerous fish, the piranha; and the Australian fruit bat tries to outsmart the biggest of all crocs, the salt water crocodile.

Three predators versus three prey – but which will win?
