Saturday

10pm, Ghost Asylum, Discovery Science. Apparent hauntings at abandoned mental homes


11:20pm, Women on the Verge, W channel. Journalist Laura, furious when the column she craved was taken from her by her married boyfriend/boss and given to an “influencer”, is becoming a little bit wearing. Certainly therapist Dr Fitzgerald can barely keep her head out of her hands as self-absorbed Laura rambles on and on about her problems


12:55am, How Mad Was King George?, PBS. The reputation of King George III as a foolish madman often overshadows his achievements. New revelations from diaries and letters, and interviews with experts tell another story.


Sunday

11:30am, Dr Sanjay Gupta, the CNN news channel. General health magazine show, often has mental health items

9pm, Bull, Fox. Follows the employees at Trial Analysis Corporation (TAC), a jury consulting firm headed by Dr Jason Bull, who is a psychologist and trial science expert. Bull uses his skills and those of his team not only to select the right jurors for his clients, but to help his clients' lawyers decide which type of argument will win over jurors best.


Monday

1am, My Crazy Ex, Lifetime channel.


Tuesday

10.35pm, Eating With My Ex, BBC 1. Over a meal couples discuss why their relationships failed

3:30am, Mr Jones (1993), Sony Movie Channel. Romance - psychological drama about a manic-depressive who begins a romance with his psychiatrist, who becomes infatuated with him, and sacrifices her professional ethics to keep the relationship alive.


Wednesday

5:30pm, Leading Women, CNN. Profiling current influential women who have made it to the top in their fields. Leading Women connects you to extraordinary women of our time. Each month, we meet two women at the top of their field, exploring their careers, lives and ideas.

Watch online - Leading Women



Thursday

8:30am, Dr Sanjay Gupta, the CNN news channel. General health magazine show, often has mental health items


8.30pm, Young Sheldon, E4. Spin-off from college comedy series The Big Bang Theory, featuring a 9 year old Sheldon Cooper. Despite speculation that Sheldon's personality traits may be consistent with Asperger syndrome, obsessive–compulsive personality disorder, and borderline asexuality, co-creator Bill Prady has repeatedly stated that Sheldon's character was neither conceived nor developed with regard to any of these traits


9pm, The Descent (2005), Horror Channel. A caving expedition goes horribly wrong for a group of female friends when they get trapped by rock fall. Friendships sour and paranoia increases as they are pursued by a strange breed of bloodthirsty predators - or is it all just cabin fever making them imagine it?


10pm, Space: 1999 : Beta Cloud, Forces TV. Old sci-fi Gerry Anderson series. A large explosion on the Moon has cast it into outer space, taking with it the manned base on the surface.

In this one, most of the crew are struck down with clinical depression, but it is a ruse staged by aliens using the forced melancholy to easier attempt to steal the nuclear reactor from the resulting indifferent crew and immune skeleton staff. Even Maya's (Catherine Schell) shape-shifting powers fail against the seemingly invincible thieving creature that incapacitates the crew.


12.05am, Danniella Westbrook - In Therapy, Channel 5


1am, My Crazy Ex, Lifetime channel.
