EVERY WEEKDAY lunchtime, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow.

Great British Bake Off (BBC One, 8pm) 

Another Wednesday, another fight to the death in the tent of tension as warriors from all walks of life battle to get Paul Hollywood to twinkle his eyes in their direction. This week it’s pastry. KEEP EVERYTHING COLD! FOR THE LOVE OF GOOD KEEP EVERYTHING COLD! #GBBO 

This World: Ireland’s Lost Babies (BBC Two, 9pm) 

Martin Sixsmith (the journalist behind the book and film Philomena) follows the stories of mothers who’ve contacted him to tell their stories of adoption and separation from their babies. #IrelandsLostBabies

Marley and Me (E4, 8pm) 

You can try and try to resist, but you will be inexplicably drawn towards the joy/weep fest that is Marley and Me. Bonus points for being able to tell Owen Wilson and the yellow Labrador apart. #MarleyAndMe


Everybody’s talking about… #Breaking Bad Ozymandias


One year after the broadcast of the third last episode of Breaking Bad (the one where Walt is confronted by Skylar and Walt Jr and ends up kidnapping baby Holly), the Emmy-winning writer of the episode Moira Walley-Beckett and the director Rian Johnson have given some behind-the-scenes details of filming Ozymandias.

The toughest moment as I remember it was before the fight, when Walt admits that Hank is dead and Skyler believes this means that he killed him.

Bryan and Anna were total troupers during the fight. We rehearsed the choreography of the struggle and when we shot it they nailed it take after take after take.
