 Tokyo Girls (BBC4, 10pm)

This film gets to the heart of a cultural phenomenon driven by the obsession with young female sexuality. Rio, a bonafide Tokyo idol, talks about her life and pursuit of fame as well as the group of adult male superfans who devote their lives to following her.

The show looks at how men who have given up salaried jobs to pursue an interest in female idol culture are not unusual in Japan anymore, and that it’s currently quite a mainstream interest. It also examines how these female idols are getting younger and younger.

Portrait of a Gallery (RTÉ One, 9.35pm)

This show will look at the reopening of Dublin’s National Gallery for the first time since 2011 after a huge refurbishment. The refurbishment cost €30 million and was one of the largest refurbishment projects the state has ever undertaken. This documentary will provide unique access to the changes that the gallery has undergone and let us get a sneak peak at the curators who re-hang 650 paintings in advance of the gallery’s reopening.
