Pick of the day

Jamie Cooks Italy, 8.30pm, Channel 4

In this new series, Jamie Oliver and his friend and mentor Gennaro Contaldo go straight to the heart of Italian cuisine: tradition.

Visiting the awe-inspiring Aeolian Islands, they track down undiscovered island recipes untouched by time.

93-year-old caper farmer Franchina teaches Jamie her show-stopping stuffed squid, inspiring Jamie's sensational grilled squid and zingy caper salsa.

Jamie also cooks up a delicious Sunday lunch with the matriarch of one of the archipelago's biggest families. On the menu is a lip-smacking chicken and aubergine pot roast with lemony couscous.

Cilla, 9.00pm, TV3

Sheridan Smith is great in this three-part biopic of Liverpudlian songbird Cilla Black, who works as a typist but has dreams of stardom.

She also performs at Liverpool's famed Cavern Club, where she meets young singer-songwriter named Bobby Willis. The rest is the stuff of Hollywood scriptwriters.

If you haven't seen this before (it was originally broadcast on ITV in 2014), it's well worth a look. And if you have seen it, you'll probably fancy seconds. It's a great story, impeccably told.

Ending Tonight

The Game, 9.35pm, RTÉ One

The third and final episode brings the sport up to date and looks at the women's version of hurling, called camogie.

In the men's game Galway’s breakthrough in the 1980s gave way to Ger Loughnane’s winning Clare side in the 1990s and Kilkenny’s fine tuning of the pressure game in the 200o’s - a team that seemed impossible to beat.

For the People, 10.00pm, Sky Witness & NOW TV

Last week's opening episode of this new legal drama from Shonda Rhimes' Shondaland stable was slick and pacy but a little bit on the cold side. Here's hoping for a bit more humanity this week.

As they tackle their second round of cases, the six young lawyers grow even more determined to bring home wins and prove they belong in The Mother Court.

Jay must set aside his personal feelings as he defends a client with controversial beliefs, and Sandra’s idealism leads to an important lesson from Ms Krissman.
