Peo­ple of the year, RTÉ One, Sunday, April 15, 9.30pm

The an­nual awards cer­e­mony pre­sented by Gráinne Seoige and Ai­dan Power, pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for the Ir­ish pub­lic to honour the coun­try’s most in­spir­ing peo­ple. The live tele­vi­sion show recog­nises the brav­ery, cov­er­age and de­ter­mi­na­tion of Ire­land’s great­est he­roes. Healthy Ap­petite, RTÉ One, Wednesday, April 18, 8.30pm

Each week, two of the coun­try’s top chefs com­pete to see who can re­duce the in­dul­gent el­e­ments in their de­li­cious restau­rant sig­na­ture dishes and turn them into the healthy op­tion. In episode one, there’s plenty of healthy com­pe­ti­tion in the kitchen as TV favourite Gary O’Han­lon (Oper­a­tion Trans­for­ma­tion, The Restau­rant) takes on Cork’s finest Kate Lawlor (Fenn’s Quay, Oys­ter Tav­ern), pic­tured. What Are You Eat­ing? RTÉ One, Thursday 19th April, 8.30pm

Ire­land is throw­ing away 1m tonnes of food an­nu­ally, cost­ing the aver­age Ir­ish house­hold €700 ev­ery year. Pre­sen­ter Philip Boucher-Hayes looks at some of the mis­takes peo­ple make. What’s Your Emer­gency? C4, Thursday, April 19, 9pm

In the first episode of a new se­ries, we see how Bri­tish po­lice re­spond to the ris­ing use of cannabis, which is now in­creas­ingly be­ing smoked openly. This shift­ing at­ti­tude is es­pe­cially ev­i­dent among the young. When po­lice catch a group of teenagers smok­ing joints out­side, one un­fazed teenage girl re­sponds: ‘I know you think it’s like il­le­gal’ — and when of­fi­cers tell her that re­ally it’s ac­tu­ally still il­le­gal, she of­fers in mit­i­ga­tion to ‘next time smoke it in­doors’.
