Old People’s Home for 4-Year-Olds (Channel 4, 9pm)

The documentary continues tonight, following a group of four-year-olds who join a new nursery set within a retirement village on the outskirts of Nottingham. In week three, the timetable is all about memory. Can everybody remember each other’s name well enough to write them on a blackboard? Who will need to cheat? After that, the pensioners and the four-year-old kids take a field trip to a nearby maze and new friendships between the kids and elderly residents begin to blossom when four-year-old Lily convinces 87-year-old Ken to swap his chips for her vegetables. 

Eamonn & Ruth: How the Other Half Lives (Virgin Media Two: 8.30pm)

New series in which Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes shed some light on the lives of the world’s richest people. They start their journey off with a trip to New York, which is home to more billionaires than any other city in the world. They meet a family who run a hotel empire together, and examine their day-to-day lifestyles (which include activities such as eating $1,000 ice cream sundaes covered in 24-carat gold), before heading to meet a woman who has lived in a luxury hotel for the last 23 years.
