Pick of the Day

Jimmy Carter: Rock n’ Roll President, 9.00pm, Sky Arts & NOW TV

Here’s a very watchable documentary about the much-loved and respected former US president, Jimmy Carter.

Serving as 39th President of the United States from 1977 to 1981, his lifelong passion for music gave him an unexpected edge as a presidential candidate as he tapped into a force that transcended racial and generational divides, and often party lines.

Carter’s appreciation for all genres of music and friendships with the likes of Bob Dylan, Gregg Allman, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, and Willie Nelson helped to define his administration.

Featuring intimate interviews with Carter and an eclectic cast of contributors including Willie Nelson, Bono, Bob Dylan, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Jimmy Buffett, Rosanne Cash, Chuck Leavell, Paul Simon, Andrew Young and Madeleine Albright, the film traces how Carter’s genuine approachability, combined with the unifying power of music, became key to his political appeal.

The Tommy Tiernan Show, 9.35pm, RTÉ One

This improvised chat show - in which neither the host nor the audience are told the identity of the guests in advance - remains the best watch on a Saturday night.
