Pick of the Day

Gerry Adams: War, Peace & Politics, 9.00pm, TV3

Vincent  Browne first met the leader of Sinn Féin more than 40 years ago. In this two-part programme he charts the role of Adams in the Northern conflict, his part in the peace process and how, under his leadership, Sinn Féin has transformed itself into one of the largest parties on both sides of the border. "I have known Gerry Adams for over forty years and have found him one of the most fascinating people in Irish public life during that time, " declares the veteran news presenter. " Against the odds he was successful. Without him, the atrocities almost certainly would have happened anyway but without him peace wouldn’t have happened when it did." Part one airs tonight, part two tomorrow Thursday at 9.00pm.

The Eurovision Song Contest will take place on May 12 in Lisbon. We have our way of selecting our entrant, but this is how Blighty is doing it. Mel Giedroyc and Mans Zelmerlow host a 90-minute show from the Brighton Dome as six acts do their best with their vocal chords and pzazz to impress the viewers and a jury of 'music professionals'. A winner out of the six acts may have already emerged, according to the Express newspaper, a young lady called Asanda. "Just over 80 per cent of all bets have been for Asanda, who is very much the favourite to represent us at the Eurovision Song Contest," a William Hill spokesman told the newspaper.

The Tommy Tiernan Show, 9.35pm, RTÉ One

Tommy Tiernan 

This lively vehicle is in its second season as the quiet hit of Irish telly, as Tommy gets into his stride. Or does he get into his stride? Well, the whole point is he never gets a chance, because he might be lucky and meet a kindred soul, someone whom he knows like Michael Harding. Or he might be presented with three vivaciously blonde triplet sisters who he doesn't recognise as, indeed, happened on the first series. The telly nation now knows that Tommy does not know who his guests are until the moment the emcee introduces them. If he is lucky, he recognises them. If he gets the curve ball of someone he doesn't know, it can be darkly wobbly for just a  few moments as he tries to figure out who he has been presented with. Edge of the seat stuff. For, er Tommy, that is, who nevertheless rises admirably to each challenge. Foster & Allen now, that was no challenge - they were total pros who wowed the kind of audience, who one can safely assume, would not darken the door of a concert by the two Midlands men.
