PrimeTimeEm­myAwards RTÉ2, 9.30p m A red car­pet spe­cial pre­cedes the high­lights of the pre­vi­ous night’s awards cer­e­monies in which West­world and a Trump-in­spired Satur­day Night Live could win big. The Classro o m Di­vide RTÉ One, 9.35p m Fifty years on from the in­tro­duc­tion of free sec­ondary school ed­u­ca­tion, Joe Duffy looks at how the sys­tem is work­ing. In par­tic­u­lar, he in­ves­ti­gates how eq­ui­table it re­ally is, look­ing at how in­come still has a bear­ing on ed­u­ca­tional at­tain­ment. Hav­ing gone from a hum­ble Bal­lyfer­mot back­ground to Trin­ity Col­lege in the 1970s — a time when Ir­ish so­ci­ety was even less fluid — it’s a sub­ject that’s ob­vi­ously close to Duffy’s heart.
