Underground: The Julian Assange Story, Sunday, 8.30pm, Ten

There are two ways to look at this telemovie. On one hand, it is a Boy's Own adventure with attractive young leads battling against the "system" and hacking the world's most secure organisations, to prove they can and, in Assange's case, to do the right thing.

On their tails are a comically underprepared police squad and the big, bad CIA. Or you can see it as a docu-drama about what made WikiLeaks founder Assange into what he is today.

If the general details of the story are as accurate as some of the computer hacking scenes then it is best treated with caution.
