Britain’s Favourite Walks: Top 100, 7.30pm, ITV

With nearly 10m of us pulling on our hiking boots every month, it’s clear we are a nation of walkers, but what is the nation’s top trail? Thousands of ramblers have been asked and now Julia Bradbury and Ore Oduba travel the length and breadth of the UK to count down through the most popular routes. Featuring some heart-warming stories, this is a lovely celebration of the great outdoors, and whether you’re a hardcore mountain hiker or you just enjoy a gentle stroll to the pub, there’s bound to be something to inspire you. Be warned, though, you’ll be dying to stretch your legs afterwards as it’s a two-and-a-half-hour show! Rating: *****

Inside No 9

Ever wondered how they decide who wins all those glittering TV and film awards? Tonight we get a (fictional) glimpse into a Bafta-style judging room, courtesy of the ever-brilliant Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton. As the assembled industry ‘experts’ attempt to whittle down the nominees for Best Actress, there’s a sense they’d all rather be doing something else. There’s the actress who is running late for her costume fitting, the writer using the discussion as a networking opportunity, and the competition winner belittled every time she speaks. Will they ever make a decision? Warning: you’ll never watch awards shows in the same way again! Rating: ***

Lotje Sodderland [pictured] was an outgoing 34-year-old with a good job and a vibrant social life. Then one night she suffered a stroke that almost killed her and left her with permanent brain damage. Five years later she still struggles with simple tasks like reading, yet Lotje is now on a mission to understand how the human brain works. In this remarkable film, she meets neuroscience pioneers who have made astonishing progress in their bid to repair “broken brains”, and their patients, who have heart-breaking and inspirational stories. Lotje is left wondering how much science really knows about the complex organ that makes us who we are. Rating: *****
