Pick of the Day

CBS Presents Oprah with Meghan and Harry, 9.30pm, RTÉ2

Less than 24 hours after its airing in the USA, here's the much-hyped Oprah Winfrey sit-down with Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, for an intimate conversation and a few digs at Harry’s dysfunctional and outrageously privileged family.

This spat between them and the rest of the Windsors is far from edifying, but - of course - it offers a major distraction from real life for many and is manna from celebrity heaven in a tabloid culture.

In a wide-ranging interview, the couple will - according to the promo blurb - speak about everything from life as a working royal, marriage, parenthood, philanthropic work to how they are handling life under intense public pressure and their move to America.

Royal watchers will lap it up, of course. And that’s the point.

The Confessors, 10.35pm, RTÉ One

Another chance to see Alex Fegan’s quaint and quite touching documentary about the current state of Irish clerical life.

Urban and rural Irish priests and chaplains reveal what it is like to hear the sins of others in the confessional, and also talk about why they have stayed within the Church.

Already, this looks like it was made at another time, in another Ireland, despite including covid. But the priests involved seem happy enough to ramble on, oblivious to the world outside passing them by.
