Britain's Olympic Torch Story
BBC 1.  19:30pm - 20:00pm

Duration: 30 minutes
With just two days to go before the Olympic flame reaches its final destination at the Olympic Stadium and officially starts the Games in London, Britain's Olympic Torch Story tells the incredible tale of how the 2012 torch relay has completely captured the imagination of the British public.
Millions of people have lined the streets over the past three months to watch the 'ordinary' torch bearers with extraordinary personal stories carry the torch through nearly a thousand towns and cities on its way to London.
We hear some of those stories that have touched the nation, such as that of paratrooper Ben Parkinson, considered to be the most seriously-wounded soldier to survive the war in Afghanistan, who somehow walked his section of the relay using his prosthetic legs. Few will forget 14-year-old Mia Rathband, running blindfold in memory of her dad David, who was blinded by Raoul Moat and tragically committed suicide months later. Or 94-year-old Thora Beddard from Oldham, who has certainly proved you're never too old for anything by learning to swim at 50 and modelling lingerie at 70!

We also re-live some of those once in a lifetime torch moments, like the torch zip-wiring across the Tyne Bridge; crossing the Border in Ireland; climbing Mount Snowdon; being part of a marriage proposal; and dancing in the ballroom at Blackpool - to name just a few.

This is the heart-warming story of a nation uniting behind the Games. Above all, it shows off the best of British, including all the wonderful landscapes and landmarks.

World's Maddest Job Interview
Channel 4.  22:00pm - 23:05pm

Eight volunteers have five days and one mission: to ace the world's maddest job interview.
Some have had or are still managing significant mental health conditions, others have not had any at all, but all are putting their work skills under the microscope in order to challenge the discrimination that sees one in five workers claim they are eased out of their jobs after telling an employer about their mental health issue.
The volunteers are trying to impress a panel of business people, who don't know which of the interviewees have been affected by mental health problems. Can the volunteers prove that those with mental health issues are as employable as those without?
The volunteers complete a variety of tough tests to assess work skills such as leadership and teamwork so that the employers - Claude Littner (The Apprentice), Chairman of Sir Alan Sugar's IT company Viglen; Elaine Holt, Bid Director at National Express; and entrepreneur and small business owner Austin Gayer - can assess their talents.
At the same time, the psych team - a consultant clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst and a consultant psychiatrist - try to identify those who have a background of mental health issues, and those who don't.
Can the volunteers prove the stereotypes wrong?
