Pick of the Day

Fungie's Kingdom, RTÉ One, 7.30pm

Baz Ashmawy makes the trip to Kerry in the aftermath of the Dingle Dolphin’s disappearance to explore the magic and the mystery of the cheeky, solitary, wild dolphin who made Dingle Bay his home for 37 years.

Ashmawy admits the upcoming documentary about the bottlenose dolphin is "really emotional".

"And all the people I met, the stories, it felt like a wake of someone I didn't know," he told the Irish Daily Mirror.

"Fungie is like a rockstar. Like people travelled from all over the world to see him," he continued.

"It was just a real mind blowing story and I kind of fell in love with the idea of him then. It is one of my real regrets that I never took my kids there.

"There is a certain element of having that reflection with how this year has been and taking things for granted and you know, one day they are gone and you think to yourself, I shouldn't take the little magical moments for granted."

"And there was a feeling of that and a feeling of slight regret and awareness."

Viva, RTÉ2, 11.30pm

Jesús (Héctor Medina) has no family; his mother is dead and his father - a one-time local boxing hero - abandoned them when he was just a child. Living alone in his familial apartment, he makes a living cutting old women's hair and caring for the wigs of the local drag performers.

In need of some money, he decides to audition for a part in their drag show, and it doesn't take long for him to find himself on the stage, as he finally has a sense of belonging that has been missing from his life. Of course, this is when his father comes back to town and forbids him from performing, pulling him back into the past just as he is about to develop a new future. Read our review here
