SIX HIGHLIGHTS FOR WHAT

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SEVEN DAYS -

If you want great grub.... MARTIN AND PAUL’S SURF ’N’ TURF Wed­nes­day, 8pm, RTÉ One

Each week, two chefs, one with a pas­sion for fish, the other for red meat, travel to a lo­ca­tion in Ire­land where they cook up two sep­a­rate dishes. Martin Shana­han will be cook­ing the fish dishes, while Paul Flynn will pre­pare the meat. The lo­cals then judge who’s the win­ner.

If you want good cook­ing – with ac­tors... RIVER COT­TAGE: THREE GO MAD Wed­nes­day, 8pm, Ch4

In this one-off spe­cial, Hugh Fearn­ley-Whit­tingstall gives a food and cook­ery mas­ter­class to Kee­ley Hawes, Felic­ity Ken­dal and Philip Glenis­ter (what would Gene Hunt say?). It’s a lot of fun, and the dishes they create look very ap­petis­ing.

If you want an eye­open­ing ex­per­i­ment... WHEN I GET OLDER Wed­nes­day, 9pm, BBC1

In this first of a two-parter, Glo­ria Hun­ni­ford, John Simp­son (right), Les­ley Joseph and Tony Robin­son move in with less for­tu­nate pen­sion­ers to dis­cover what their lives are like. On Thurs­day, they sam­ple life in a care home. It makes for sad and salu­tary view­ing.
