Homeland is back for a final season, there's a documentary about Sister Stanislaus Kennedy, and it's goodnight and good luck to A League of Their Own: European Trip . . .

Pick of the Day

Homeland, 10.30pm, RTÉ 2

It's the eighth and final season of the CIA thriller that went from great to awful and landed on pretty good for the last few runs.

Once again Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin return as the bipolar former CIA agent Carrie Mathison, and Saul Berenson, Carrie's mentor both within and out of the CIA.

The final season begins with Carrie recovering in Germany after the events of last season, while Saul makes a negotiation and freelance surveillance expert Max (Maury Sterling) has a new mission.

Hunted, 9.00pm, Channel 4

The real-life thriller returns as ordinary people go on the run from a team of expert hunters.

This time the hunted include a mother on the run, a 78-year-old grandfather with a mysterious past, and a couple of childhood sweethearts - 10 pairs pursued by an elite group of determined ex-military, law enforcement and security forces.

For the first time, the fugitives have been stripped of all personal belongings and money - all they have is the clothes on their backs.

The Secret Life of the Zoo, 8.0pm, Channel 4

Cameras once again lead viewers into the places that Chester Zoo's regular visitors never get to see.

For starters, on Chimpanzee Island, dominant male Dylan's 15-year rule is in jeopardy when the females prove a distraction, and a new generation of males take the opportunity to challenge the pecking order.

Here's an old clip that shows the flavour of the show:
