What to watch on TV tonight: Wednesday

This is the telly everyone will be talking about tomorrow. rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

The People Vs The NHS: Who Gets the Drugs? (BBC Two, 9pm)

Back in 2006, the NHS ruled that PrEP, a drug which many experts believe could end the HIV and AIDs epidemic, would not be freely available. This documentary follows the legal battle to overturn that decision and goes behind the scenes to look at why the original decision was made. Given PrEP isn’t freely available in Ireland one would hope Simon Harris might tune into this and fix that immediately.

Big Beasts: Last of the Giants (Sky One, 9pm)

We know that a lot of animals are facing extinction. In this episode Patrick Aryee is in Africa examining the challenges that desert giraffes, tusker elephants and great white sharks face in the struggle for their survival.

Love Island (3e, 9pm)

After last night’s very dramatic episode in which nearly all the couples fell apart, tonight will see one of the couples be eliminated and dumped from the island. Can Alex survive another public vote? Has Wes sealed his fate with his handling of Laura? Is Megan more of a snake than Adam? Answers to these questions and more will be found by tuning in tonight.

Everybody’s talking about.. Maradona’s reactions to the Argentina win

Argentina were involved in a tense game with Nigeria last night which resulted in Argentina scraping through to the last 16. However, it was Diego Maradona who caused concern throughout the match.

In fact in a full breakdown of events, he unveiled a banner of himself, fell asleep in the first half and then gave the double middle finger after Argentina scored the winning goal towards the end of the game.

A video later emerged of him being helped from his seat at the end of the game where he collapsed and was treated by Russian paramedics.

A lot of people weren’t impressed with BBC commentator Gary Lineker remarking that Maradona was ‘in danger of becoming a laughing stock’.
