Pick of the day

Dave Allen at Peace, 9.00pm BBC Two & 9.30pm RTÉ One
Filmed in homage to his original TV series, this dramatisation of the life and career of the legendary Irish comedian follows Dave Allen from childhood and into the comedian’s forty-year career.

Starring Aidan Gillan, this drama explores how Allen’s comedy was shaped by the tragic loss of his father, his brother, and his finger.

The film is structured as an affectionate homage to the format of his hugely popular TV show. From his famous bar stool, the comic reflects on his formative years and showbiz career. Flashbacks, some visualised as comedy sketches, highlight significant moments from his life.
