What's the cream of the television tonight?

Fancy some FACTUAL?

Then watch -  SCANNAL

RTE,  7.30pm

This edition looks back at the FAS expenses scandal, a  sorry tale involving the squandering of public money that emerged at just the

wrong time. With contributions from Shane Ross, Conall O Morain and Ronan O Domhnaill.

Fancy some  DOCUDRAMA?

Then watch -  BLACKOUT

Channel 4, 9.00pm

Rather scary docudrama that imagines the consequences of a full-scale cyber attack on Britain’s national grid. With power supplies cut, law and order quickly breaksdown, food becomes scarce, services cease to function and the country descends into chaos. Anthony Schuster stars.


Fancy a good DOCUMENTARY?


RTE1, 9.30pm

Second in a two–part documentary that follows the families of five boys hoping to get into Dublin’s prestigious Belvedere College via their Social Diversity Programme. Shot over two years, the film gives an insight into how one school endeavours to makedifference and gives a perspective on Irish education.
