Staying in tonight? If you're not interested in seeing Liverpool try to rescue their Champions League campaign, there's plenty more to watch...

PRIME TIME

RTE1, 9.30pm

In this  special investigation, Inside Bungalow 3, Prime Time goes undercover into a  HSE care home in Co Mayo and broadcasts some disturbing footage. This evening's programme shows three defenceless women being slapped, dragged and verbally abused at the HSE-run Aras Attracta facility in Swinford, Co Mayo. The  women aged between their mid-50s and mid-70s are treated roughly and forced to sit in the same position on couches or chairs for most of the day, with little to stimulate them other than the television.

Nine staff at the centre were suspended without prejudice, after the abuse was reported to the HSE the week before last. The footage is now being investigated by gardai.

But the security  breach at the embassy has a number of far-reaching consequences as the fourth series of the CIA thriller continues. Claire Danes, Rupert Friend and Mandy Patinkin star in a show that has more than found its footing after some shaky seasons and is back to its best

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE LIVE: Liverpool v Basel

TV3, 7.30pm

Liverpool v FC Basel (Kick-off 7.45pm). Tommy Martin presents coverage of the match day six fixture at Anfield, where only a win will see the Reds qualify for the knockout stage. The Swiss champions won the reverse fixture 1-0, and they have also upset Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in recent European campaigns. However, Brendan Rodgers’ men will feel they can gain revenge in front of their own fans if they find their best form in what has been an inconsistent season for them so far. With commentary by Dave McIntyre and Mark Lawrenson.

 

THE MISSING

THE SECRETS OF QUANTUM PHYSICS

BBC4, 9pm

The presenter then recreates this experiment – with shocking results.
