Pick of the Day

The Den, 6.30pm, RTÉ One

During these pandemic times, many people look to nostalgia to keep them going through lockdown. And nostalgia doesn't come with more zogabongs than this.

Ray D'Arcy reunites with his old after-school alien buddies Zig and Zag, promising a mix of nostalgia, fun and lots of laughs. There's also some turkey called Dustin. Apparently he once sang for Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest.

It's live too, so pretty much anything could happen. You have been warned.

Leftover Women, 9.00pm, Sky Documentaries & NOW TV

In China, women are under immense pressure to marry young or face the stigma that comes with being single.

This film by award winning filmmaker Shosh Shlam follows three successful Chinese women - Qiu Hua Mei, a 34-year-old lawyer; Xu Min, 28, who works in public radio; and Gai Qi, 36, an assistant college professor in Beijing - who, despite thriving careers, are still labelled "leftover women," or sheng nu, a derogatory term used in China to describe educated, professional women in their mid-20s and '30s who are not married.

Shlam’s film uncovers the myth that marriage equals happiness, and follows the three hopeful singles as they seek to define love on their own terms.
