THE LAST LAP

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

Twenty Twelve Tues­day, 10pm, BBC2

10PM, CH4 Con­tin­u­ing Chan­nel 4’s men­tal health sea­son, this two-parter (con­clud­ing to­mor­row) puts eight vol­un­teers – some with men­tal health is­sues, oth­ers with­out – through a gru­elling work skills as­sess­ment. Will their po­ten­tial em­ploy­ers, and a panel of ex­perts, be able to tell which of them has men­tal health prob­lems?

11.40PM, CH4 Sea­son two con­cludes with Sarah and Holder clos­ing in on Rosie’s killer. But there’s a twist in the tale, as more than one per­son was re­spon­si­ble for her death – and the coup de grâce was de­liv­ered by some­one close to her...

11.40PM, RTÉ ONE In 1989 Bernard Lough­lin walked the lanes and roads along the Bor­der, un­der the shadow of the British Army’s watch­tow­ers. All’s changed since then, and this is re­minder of how far we’ve come in a quar­ter of a cen­tury. With only days to go un­til the Games, the Olympic De­liv­er­ance Team is ty­ing up loose ends – and pretty hair-rais­ing ‘loose ends’ they are. But how will it end for Ian (Hugh Bon­neville, left) and Sally? That would be telling.
