A REBEL'S STORY FUN AND GAMES game ON MAKING DOUGH

1916 Seachtar na Casca TG4, 9.30pm This excellent series chronicles the life and times of the seven signatories of the 1916 Easter Proclamation. Tonight it's the turn of Leitrim-born Sean Mac Diarmada. He became heavily involved in the Republican movement at an early age, despite suffering from polio.

An organiser and participant in the Easter Rising, he was executed by firing squad aged just 33.

Champions League RTE2, 7pm

Manchester United have the home advantage for their encounter with Turkish side Bursaspor in their Group C clash. As Wayne Rooney has said that he wants to leave the club and has been ruled out of tonight's game with an ankle injury, it'll be interesting to see how United react on the pitch. Much of their attacking threat will lie with the rejuvenated Dimitar Berbatov (above).



MAKING DOUGH

The Apprentice BBC1, 9pm

All the contestants in the British competition must raise their game big time after last week's litany of errors while designing a new product for the beach. They trade in their flash suits for hairnets as the next port of call is a bakery, where they're busy creating their own bread and buns to sell on a market stall. However, the challenge gets tough when they have to pitch their produce to an upmarket hotel, a restaurant and a coffee shop.
