Raised by the Vil­lage, RTÉ One, Mon­day, June 4, 6.30pm Two city fam­i­lies who need ma­jor help with par­ent­ing and are tak­ing dras­tic steps to get it. Un­der the guid­ance of child psy­chother­a­pist, Stella O’Mal­ley, the prob­lem pair — Scott from Kim­mage (left) and Leah from Tal­laght — will get a dose of teenage life Ir­ish vil­lage style. But will the two teens learn to be­have bet­ter when they’re part of a tight-knit com­mu­nity where the lo­cal adults keep a very close eye on what they get up to? Bride & Prej­u­dice, C4, Tues­day, June 5, 9pm Six cou­ples pre­par­ing for the big­gest day of their lives are de­ter­mined to win their fam­i­lies’ bless­ing. In this first episode, a 24-year-old stu­dent Dee is weeks away from mar­ry­ing lo­cal coun­cil­lor John — who is 35 years her se­nior. Will she get the ap­proval she craves from her grand­fa­ther? The Truth About Carbs, BBC One, Wednes­day, June 6, 8pm Dr Xand Van Tulleken is a self-pro­fessed lover of carbs, to the point where he used to weigh 19 stone. He’s keen to dis­cover whether they re­ally are a killer as claimed by many, re­spon­si­ble for record lev­els of obe­sity and type 2 di­a­betes. The doc­u­men­tary also in­ves­ti­gates cut­ting-edge re­search into the possible link be­tween carb con­sump­tion and in­fer­til­ity in women and men. Healthy Ap­petite, RTÉ One, Wednes­day, June 6, 8.30pm In the final episode of the se­ries, Stephen Gibson of Pichet (which has a Miche­lin Bib Gour­mand) com­petes with Lina Gau­tam from Monty’s of Kath­mandu to turn the de­li­cious dishes at both Dublin city restau­rants into health­ier op­tions.
