Pick of the Day
Operation Transformation, 9.35pm, RTÉ One
Operation transformation returns for its 12th season and this year the programme has undergone something of a transformation itself.
The show has been provided with a new base, a new medical expert, new challenges – and as always there are five new leaders for viewers to follow.
Presenter Kathryn Thomas will once again spearhead the nationwide campaign to get people moving by giving them the tools they need to complete a 5K run by the end of the series.
This year the show will be based in the north county Dublin town of Balbriggan as OT attempts to get the whole town moving, encouraging local community leaders to get their area active with the programme reporting on their success.
