One of the important nights of the week for television viewing is Sunday.

This week ITV are airing two new programmes which will each last for three weeks. The first programme at 8pm is The Story of Cats. Cats are one of our most popular pets and many of us share our homes with them. But how much do we know about them and how similar or different are our domestic cats to those big cats that roam in the wild? The programmes will seek to demonstrate how adaptable cats are to the different conditions that they find themselves.

Then at 9pm, post watershed, ITV are screening a period drama called Doctor Thorne, from the 1848 novel by Anthony Trollope. It has been adapted for television by Julian Fellowes, who was the creator of the very successful ITV Sunday night drama Downton Abbey.

It explores some of the problems people of that time faced if they were born illegitimate.
