By Any Means, Sun, BBC1 // When Miranda Met Bruce, Sat, BBC1

Last night's viewing - Long Lost Family, ITV

The last time I cried during prime-time on ITV, Argentinian goalkeeper Carlos Roa had just saved a penalty from David Batty and England's football team were heading back home from Saint-Etienne. Now, I'm not saying that those soapy montages on The X Factor, or whatever, never moved me, but, well, actually, that's exactly what I'm saying. This third series of Long Lost Family had me in puddles. Just like a shanked hoof by an English midfielder. Long Lost Family follows a fairly simple format – researchers find stories of people who've lost their mother/brother/sisters/father and set out to seek and reunite them. Essentially, it's the last five minutes of Surprise, Surprise without Bob Carolgees and Cilla's song.

Last Night's TV: Classroom Secrets/BBC1<br />Torchwood: Miracle Day/BBC1

Class 4FF, you are LIVE on BBC1, please do not swear!" Davina McCall's foghorn may have been absent but Big Brother loomed large over Classroom Secrets. The idea was to rig up a classroom at Humberstone Junior School in Leicester with fixed cameras, film the pupils and teachers for a week and then show the footage to staff and parents in order to root out the causes of "low-level disruption" and eradicate them together. A lesson in Big Society schooling, if you like.

Last Night's TV: Long Lost Family/ITV1<br />Secrets of the Arabian Nights/BBC4

The biggest surprise in Long Lost Family is that it's not been made before. Ancestry, investigation, lost relatives: it is, surely, a match made in wall-to-wall heaven. After all, these are the people who brought us Who Do You Think You Are?. This was but a moodboard away.
