Daniel O'Connell: Forgotten King of Ireland, 9.35pm, RTÉ One
The second part of Olivia O'Leary's Daniel O'Connell documentary charts his latter years when he began the movement to repeal the Act of Union of 1801, which had dissolved the Irish parliament.
By 1830 O'Connell was a member of the British parliament, the first Irish Catholic ever elected. His strident politics had helped achieve rights for Catholics, but his eyes were now set upon a far greater challenge: to repeal the Act of Union that had taken away Ireland’s political autonomy.
But would he be able to assail the British establishment with the same success that he enjoyed when he achieved his crowning glory: Catholic emancipation?

This three-part documentary tells the extraordinary story of his controversial rule, and how he set about transforming China into a tightly controlled state where loyalty to the Communist Party appears to be valued above everything else.
