What to watch on TV tonight: Monday

Here are the shows that’ll be on your Twitter timeline later.

You, later
You, later

Every lunchtime, rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

The Man Who Shot The Great War (BBC One, 9pm)

In 1915, Belfast man George Hackney left home to fight the trenches in the Great War. And he took his camera with him. His photographs – in a place where unofficial photography was completely illegal – are a rare candid look at the lives of ordinary soldiers amid the horror of war.

Some Irish People With Jokes (BBC Two, 9.45pm)

How good are Irish people at telling jokes? Simply turn to BBC Two to find out, as they bring their series – where people from a particular social group are given 15 minutes to tell their best jokes – to what they call the ‘Emerald Isle’. Watch our nation either distinguish or embarrass itself, depending on who they pick.

Republic of Telly (RTÉ Two, 10pm)

Everyone’s talking about: The Fall

7096631-high- Source: RTE

If you haven’t started watching The Fall yet, get on it. The Belfast-set thriller starring Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson aired the second episode of season two just last night, and so far every single minute has been a nail-biter. It’s co-produced by RTÉ and has flown weirdly under the radar until now, but here’s a secret: it’s actually MUCH better than Love/Hate.

Or flick over for…

  • I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! (3e, 9pm) The celebrities get used to life in the jungle.
  • How The Rich Get Richer (Channel 4, 8pm) Dispatches looks at the increase in the wealth gap, and asks how rich people actually get richer.
  • University Challenge (BBC Two, 8pm) Want to feel stupid, but weirdly compelled? Step right up.
  • The Lie (TV3, 8pm) A Dubliner takes the stage in TV3′s game show to try and find the lie.
  • Toast of London (Channel 4, 10.50pm) Cult comedy continues.
