Wednesday's TV: Show Me Your Money and Brooklyn's Finest
Tonight on the telly box Channel 4 has a very, very interesting workplace experiment in Show Me Your Money, while the Olympics hype continues.
Main Event: Show Me Your Money, Channel 4, 10pm
Employees at Pimlico Plumbers in London are asked by managing director Charlie Mullins to reveal how much they are paid, as the company carries out an experiment to see how exposing salary discrepancies affects individual performance.
Once everyone's wages are public knowledge, the staff engage in a series of job-swapping schemes to find a suitable solution to end the apparent injustice of people performing the same tasks for different amounts of money.
We can’t wait to see the reactions once the disclosed salaries hit the notice board, which is why we’ve made the show our TV Pick of the Week.
Sporting Pick: Faster Higher Stronger – Stories of the Olympic Games, BBC Two, 7pm
Tonight’s show details the story of the 1500m and the most famous athletes to have gone for gold in the middle-distance track event, including Great Britain's trio of Sebastian Coe, Steve Ovett and Steve Cram, who all competed in the Los Angeles Olympics of 1984.
The programme reveals that although the race is run on the track, it is won on punishing training runs in natural landscapes, from the forests of Finland to the high-altitude terrains of Kenya and Morocco.
Movie Pick: Brooklyn’s Finest, BBC One, 11.45pm

A veteran on the brink of retirement is presented with a difficult dilemma, a corrupt cop is willing to do what it takes to provide for his family and an undercover officer has grown disillusioned with his role and is ready to step down.
A satisfying but unspectacular crime thriller, starring Richard Gere, Don Cheadle, Ethan Hawke, Wesley Snipes and Vincent D'Onofrio
