a little bit showband

tg4, 11pm

Ronan Collins presents a six-part documentary series celebrating the careers of the stars who rose to fame during the country's showband era. This first edition focuses on Brendan Bowyer - often hailed as 'Ireland's answer to Elvis' - and lead singer of 1960s pop group the Royal Showband.

AS series three of the hit comedy concludes, viewers are treated to a double bill of the show loosly based on Armando Iannucci's The Thick of It. Having lost his job with the Maddox camp, Jonah begs his mother to talk to his uncle Jeff Kane, who controls the senior vote in New Hampshire. Meanwhile, Selina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus, right) has an interview with pretentious journalist Quincy Carter, who leaves his phone on her desk and records the team derisively discussing a $4,000 campaign donation. Selina realises that she is sunk, but Kent arrives from DC with some stunning news.
