Who Do You Think You Are? BBC1, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Ir­ish co­me­dian Brendan O’Car­roll, best known as his al­ter ego Mrs Brown and star of the BBC sit­com Mrs Brown’s Boys, tries to find out the truth about his grand­fa­ther’s mur­der, and at­tempts to un­cover the iden­ti­ties of the men re­spon­si­ble. Shop­keeper Peter O’Car­roll was killed in Oc­to­ber 1920 at the height of the Ir­ish War of In­de­pen­dence, and the Dublin-born ac­tor be­gins his jour­ney of dis­cov­ery with only a news­pa­per ar­ti­cle from the time and the words ‘shot dur­ing the cur­few’ from Peter’s grave­stone.
