Irish American ex-Dragon Seán O’Sullivan has made hundreds of millions, not only through his own IT designs - he coined the term “cloud computing” and invented map apps for mobile phones - but also through venture capitalism. He was raised in poverty by a devoutly Catholic mother, and he tells Gay Byrne (pictured with Seán) that he is more interested in values than profits. O'Sullivan says that he spends his life trying to give back to the world more than he takes from it.

Quirke: Silver Swan, 9.00pm BBC One
It is early 1957, and the Griffin family has been blown apart since the revelation in Boston that Quirke is Phoebe’s natural father. Quirke is drinking heavily and his brother Mal (Nick Dunning) and Sarah’s marriage is on the rocks. Quirke and his adoptive father - the formidable Judge Garret Griffin (Michael Gambon) are estranged - and Phoebe (Geraldine Somerville) defiantly takes up with a louche and dangerous young man called Leslie White. Quirke investigates two apparent suicides, one a well-to-do society woman, the other the wife of his former student.
