The Ap­pren­tice

24 Hours In A&E

9PM, CH4 A new run of the doc­u­men­tary se­ries fol­low­ing the busy, de­mand­ing life of the A&E depart­ment of London’s King’s Col­lege Hospi­tal. With cases rang­ing from the triv­ial to the deadly se­ri­ous, it’s by turns heart­warm­ing, heart­break­ing, touch­ing and funny.


10PM, SONY TV Here’s a chance to see the slick, high-speed, strik­ingly un­pre­dictable Bri­tish spy drama from the first episode. It gets off to a con­fi­dent start, build­ing up to the kind of nail-bit­ing cli­max that be­came its trade­mark.

BBC Young Mu­si­cian 2012 Sun­day, 6pm, BBC2

Ire­land’s Beauty Queens

9PM, BBC1 It’s an­other rail­way sta­tion ren­dezvous for the thrust­ing young go-get­ters as Lord Sugar sum­mons them to St Pan­cras In­ter­na­tional and the long­est cham­pagne bar in Europe. There, he is­sues them with their lat­est chal­lenge – to mar­ket English sparkling wine. This is a rather more se­date af­fair than the Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent final, but no less com­pelling – and the stan­dard of mu­si­cian­ship on dis­play in this con­test for young per­form­ers is re­ally quite as­ton­ish­ing. Watch and won­der. here are out of work and un­sure of what their fu­tures will hold.

Would I Lie To You?

8.30PM, BBC1 In the first of BBC1’S Fri­day-night com­edy triple bill (Have I Got News For You and Not Go­ing Out fol­low), Rob Bry­don over­sees pro­ceed­ings as four more celebri­ties look to call each other’s bluffs. Join­ing Lee Mack are Bob Mor­timer and Patsy Ken­sit, while on David Mitchell’s team are Greg Davies and Point­less co-host Richard Os­man.

Mae­stro At The Opera

9PM, BBC2 With an­other con­tes­tant hav­ing de­parted last week, just two celebri­ties are left to go head to head in the final chal­lenge: con­duct­ing Puc­cini’s La Bo­hème. First, they look for in­spi­ra­tion at the com­poser’s house in Lucca, Tus­cany.

Shame­less USA

9.05PM, RTÉ TWO Fiona bumps into Steve and his new girl­friend Estefania at Jas­mine’s end-of-sum­mer party. And though Fiona en­joys Granny’s com­pany, Frank is des­per­ate to get rid of her.


10PM, BBC2 The sec­ond episode of the new se­ries finds Matt pin­ing for his ‘bro­mance’ with Sean, and try­ing to woo him back with a very ex­pen­sive gift. Mean­while, pro­ducer Merc is in melt­down when the rat­ings for Pucks! sud­denly crash.


10.05PM, RTÉ TWO Vince goes against his friends’ ad­vice and gives his old neme­sis, pro­ducer Carl Ertz, when he claims to be in­ter­ested in his movie project.

Nurse Jackie

10.40PM, RTÉ TWO Kevin dis­cov­ers a se­cret stash in the den­tal floss, while Jackie man­ages to steal more drugs from on­col­ogy. And the new nurse con­tin­ues to charm the rest of the staff, but Jackie re­mains unim­pressed.
