Celtic Wo­man: A New Jour­ney, 1.30pm, SBS Be­gor­rah! Here’s a con­cert recorded at Slane Cas­tle in County Meade, Ire­land, in which the orig­i­nal five Celtic women ( Chloe Agnew, Orla Fal­lon, Lynn Hi­lary, Lisa Kelly and Alex Sharpe) are joined by a sixth. She is the lovely and tal­ented Hay­ley Westenra, who in­ci­den­tally has a gor­geous turn on Mike Old­field’s forth­com­ing classical CD Mu­sic of the Spheres . The evening, fea­tur­ing Celtic clas­sics, con­tem­po­rary hits and orig­i­nal ma­te­rial, is hosted by the ge­nial Lord Henry Mountcharles. Be­ing Clau­dia Car­di­nale, 7.30pm, SBS One day, young Clau­dia Car­di­nale, pic­tured, was dis­cov­ered by an Ital­ian film ex­ec­u­tive, who en­tered her in a ‘‘ most beau­ti­ful girl in Tu­nisia con­test’’, which she won. Her prize was a week at the Venice film fes­ti­val and a screen test. Nat­u­rally, things went swimmingly and Car­di­nale be­came the nat­u­ral suc­ces­sor to Gina Lol­lo­b­rigida and Sophia Loren. A body of work fol­lowed that sur­passed her body beau­ti­ful. She worked with most of the great Ital­ian direc­tors, in­clud­ing Luchino Vis­conti, Fed­erico Fellini and Mario Mon­i­celli. NYPD 24/ 7, 10.55pm, Nine What is it with Nine and fly- on- the- wall po­lice re­al­ity shows? As if the ex­e­crable Po­lice 10/ 7 from New Zealand weren’t enough, now you can be a fly on the wall in a Noo Yawk po­lice car and see how dif­fer­ently they han­dle things there. Mind you, there’s prob­a­bly go­ing to be a tad more drama in the Big Ap­ple than in the Bay of Plenty.
