There's The DART: No Ordinary Day, new country music drama George & Tammy, more Taormina trauma on The White Lotus, and a three-part look at domestic abuse and femicide in Ireland . . .

Pick of the Day

The DART: No Ordinary Day, 9.35pm, RTÉ One

This documentary goes behind the scenes of the Dublin Area Rapid Transit electric railway – better knows as the DART – as it heads towards its 40th anniversary.

It captures ordinary and extraordinary days through the experiences of those who work and travel on the trains.

It features the time the system came to a standstill after a delay resulted in passengers mass evacuating from trains and walking along the track, as well as following the team managing the thousands of passengers en route to the Ireland v Armenia match at the Aviva Stadium.

There’s a wide range of contributors – such as a clerical officer who moonlights in crowd control on big event days, a young man about the begin a graphic design course in college who is grateful to his parents for moving their family to Ireland.

And there’s engineer Monika whose job entails a tight turnaround for night-time maintenance on the tracks.

Viewers will also see those working in security on the line and we hear from some passengers who use the train for work and for leisure.

We hear how parts of the line is under threat from climate change and watch a team as they climb the rockface doing checks.

The documentary also features unprecedent access to Irish Rail on the day of the Bray Air Show, which resulted in passengers leaving trains and taking to the railway line.
