The second episode in this absorbing series about songs associated with the Irish War of Independence and Civil War.

The War of The Worlds, BBC One, 9.00pm

Tonight, George (Rafe Spall) is alive. He races home to look for Amy (Eleanor Tomlinson) but she’s not there. As George frantically tries to find her he meets a weary Artilleryman (Harry Melling) and is told he must fight for his country.
