Live Uefa Europa League Final
7.15pm, ITV

Should Chelsea win tonight against Benfica, they will enjoy the distinction of having won all three major European trophies. However, it might feel anticlimactic, having won the Champions League in 2012. They've looked committed thus far in pursuit of what might be considered a booby prize, but Portugal's Benfica have pedigree of their own and looked impressive in dispatching Fenerbahçe in the semi-final. At least it's being held on a Wednesday night, the true timeslot of European football. David Stubbs

Join the world's most urgent-sounding voiceover man as he documents the brave souls risking their lives to help others while riding really quickly on motorbikes. Every day the angels on wheels are faced with surfing teenagers, collapsing pensioners and drivers feigning surprise at failed breathalyser tests. In the West Midlands there's a lesson about what happens when you pop to the shops with no car tax or insurance, while in Truro you know you're in safe hands if a calm fella called Keith comes to your aid.

Stories From The Dark Earth: Meet The Ancestors Revisited
8pm, BBC4

Julian Richards revisits two digs involving iron age burials. The first, in the Cotswolds, uncovered the remains of a teenage girl. The second, in Wetwang, east Yorkshire, involved the unearthing of a "chariot queen". Going back to both excavations reveals how research carries on long after archaeologists finish digging. The Yorkshire remains, for instance, have offered new insights into our forebears' beliefs, based on the discovery of a mirror contained within an otter-fur bag. Jonathan Wright

Bankers
9pm, BBC2

There's not much reassurance here that bankers are any more responsible than when the financial system crashed five years ago. The second part of the series on risky financial activity shows how overconfidence and hubris created two recent crises at brokerage firm MF Global and JP Morgan – one of the better-managed banks, apparently. It would be hilarious if it wasn't so scary. Martin Skegg

Great Artists In Their Own Words
9pm, BBC4

Hard to believe that the BBC didn't make a clip show from their vast repository of cultural programming years ago. Now they have, it's predictably excellent, not just as an overview of art movements of the last century, but for its engaging anecdotal qualities. We are as moved and entertained, for example, by the wiry humility of Sir Henry Moore as by the frequently inarticulate but acerbic thoughts of Francis Bacon. Of the chaos in his studio he says in 1974: "It's often like having a great dog in here to keep you out." JW

Parks And Recreation
10pm, BBC4

After a series of successful dates with Justin, Leslie is desperate to impress him with an endlessly entertaining dinner party. Can an event-packed shindig really be scheduled with metronomic accuracy? Leslie certainly hopes so. Next up, Tom is marking his divorce by moving to a new bachelor pad, roping in most of the parks department to help with the move. This allows April to get closer to Andy, Andy to re-watch ludicrous shark-attack horror Deep Blue Sea, and for the viewers to meet the magnificent DJ Roomba. Mark Jones

Mad Men
10pm, Sky Atlantic

So, after last week's expectation-upending instalment, what now for the newly merged offices of Sterling Cooper Draper Price and Cutler Gleason and Chaough? Well, for starters, they could do with a snappier name. There's also the immediate question of how to placate the two firms' competing clients. Pete Campbell is usually pretty adept at this sort of thing, but he's a little busy fighting fires in his troubled personal life; this week he's forced to deal with an unexpected guest. John Slattery directs. Gwilym Mumford
