What to watch on TV tonight: Tuesday

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

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

Man on Bridge (RTÉ One, 9.35pm) 

A worth repeat of the documentary which tells the story of Arthur Fields, a Dublin photographer who spent decades snapping people on  O’Connell Bridge. #ManOnBridge

Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners (Channel 4, 8pm) 

The Channel 4 show travels to Galway for this week’s episode. Castle Ellen, the 19th century home of Michael Keaney located outside Athenry, has been subjected to his hoarding for many year. It’s time to call in the experts. #ObsessiveCompulsiveCleaners

Great Ormond Street (BBC Two, 9pm)

This week’s episode follows cystic fibrosis sufferers Charlie and Jess, as doctors work their magic in London’s Great Ormond Street. Tissues, as always, at the ready. #GreatOrmondStreet 


Everybody’s talking about… #True Detective

Specifically people are asking “when is it going to get good?”.

The second season is not really enjoying the acclaim and success of the first, with many appearing to stick with it in the hope that it will approve. The AV Club thinks last night’s episode may have done enough to reset the series, while Business Insider still isn’t sold.

Or switch over for…

  • Child Genius (Channel 4, 9pm) Terrifyingly bright children make you feel bad about your brains

  • Up in the Air (UTV Ireland, 9pm) No, not the dead good George Clooney film, but a documentary about Virgin Atlantic staff
  • Franc’s DIY Brides (RTÉ One, 8.30pm) A nautical-themed wedding for €10k. CAN IT BE DONE?
