Diamond geezers and gold dealers

UTV, 9pm

Hatton Garden has been London's jewellery quarter for more than 200 years. Located north-west of the City, it's a half-mile 
stretch where millions of pounds of gold, 
silver and precious stones are bought and sold every single day. This documentary goes
behind the scenes, meeting the wheelers and dealers and bespoke designers working in the area, from high-end diamond traders to scrap gold dealers and those who find gold in the most unlikely places - like teeth. A good look into the hidden world of precious metals.

commonwealth games

BBC One, 7pm

Gary Lineker introduces live coverage of the opening evening of swimming finals at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre in Glasgow. Tonight will see semi-finals in four 
disciplines as well as the first medals decided, including in the men's 400m freestyle and 200m breaststroke, and women's 4x100m 
freestyle relay. Australia were clearly the 
dominant force in the pool four years ago in Delhi, with England a distant second, and 
Scotland winning just two swimming 
golds. The home crowd should have a major contender to cheer on this evening though, 
provided Michael Jamieson made it through 
this morning's qualifiers in the 200m 
breaststroke.
