Pick of the Day

Nothing Compares, 9.00pm, Sky Documentaries

This documentary film tells the story of the late - it feels weird writing that - Sinéad O'Connor's phenomenal rise to worldwide fame and how her iconoclastic personality resulted in her exile from the pop mainstream.

Focusing on her prophetic words and deeds from 1987-1993, the film reflects on the legacy of this fearless artist through a contemporary feminist lens.

Then at 11.15pm there's Sinead O'Connor Live At Vicar Street on RTÉ One, which will also be available on the RTÉ Player.

For this hour-long special, recorded live in Vicar Street in 2002, Sinéad was joined by her remarkable band for this inspirational and uplifting performance.

The show includes performances of iconic songs such as Molly Malone, My Lagan Love, Nothing Compares 2 U and Fire On Babylon.
