SIX HIGHLIGHTS FOR WHAT
If you want a cracking fantasy series... SINBAD Sunday, 7pm, Sky1
Sky’s fantasy series is lots of fun, mixing drama with some great moments of humour. In tonight’s episode, there’s a great deal of black magic in the air, as Taryn (Irish actress Orla Brady, right) sets a trap for Sinbad, who has returned to Basra to rescue his granny.
If you want a pageant... THE ROSE OF TRALEE Monday, 8pm, RTÉ ONE
The Rose of Tralee remains one of RTÉ’s most popular programmes of the year. And tonight, Dáithí Ó Sé, who recently married former New Jersey Rose Rita Talty, returns for another staging of the event (won last year by Tara Talbot, right) live from the Dome.
If you want a fascinating true story... THE QUEEN’S MOTHER IN LAW Tuesday, 9pm, Ch4
This documentary charts the sad, but ultimately fulfilled life of a remarkable woman – Prince Philip’s late mother (Elizabeth II’s mother-in-law) Princess Alice, who turned her back on royal life, devoted herself to others, and became a nun.
