Fashion's Dirty Secrets: Stacey Dooley Investigates (BBC1, Regions Vary)

IN an age when high street/online stores can make a fortune selling cheap clothing to cash-strapped customers, it seems like a win-win situation for everyone.

But of course when Stacey Dooley's name is attached to any project other than Strictly these days, you know there's a dark side to the issue. She'll travel the world to see how toxic chemicals released by the garment industry are polluting waterways that millions rely on. And there's a jaw-dropping moment when she takes a look at what was the Aral Sea. At one time it was one of the largest bodies of fresh water, but now it has been reduced almost entirely to dust. After this show, you may think twice before snapping up the next cheap garment.

Lawless Britain: Where Are the Police? - Channel 4 Dispatches (C4, 8pm)

HAVE you been burgled, robbed or assaulted but feel that the police brushed you off?

You're not alone. Dispatches hears from victims of crime who claim that the police have failed to investigate their cases fully, if at all. These are stories of violent attacks, homes broken into, property vandalised and family businesses left to fend for themselves against thieves. Exclusive research featured in the programme raises concerns that Britain is now sliding into a new era of policing. One of the most comprehensive analyses to date reveals the levels of crimes that many forces are choosing not to investigate. Dispatches also examines the wider impact of the policy of 'screening out' and other practices by the police.

Old People's Home for 4 Year Olds (C4, 9pm)

LARK Hill, on the outskirts of Nottingham, features a specially built nursery where the classmates' ages range from three to 102.

It's the setting for a three-month experiment inspired by the success of series one. That took place in Bristol, and the second run features older pensioners, and the nursery runs for twice as long. It remains to be seen whether an experiment of this length is sustainable and if the results can inspire long-term solutions in older care. Geriatric specialists will measure the impact of pre-schoolers on the mood, memory and mobility of the older group, while a child development specialist will oversee proceedings. Among the participants in episode one are 102-year-old Sylvia, and four-year-old Scarlett, who recently lost her mum.
