Here are some of the things you should be watching this week, while you’re actually watching that ‘I’m a celebrity’ nonsense. Seriously?
Small Axe – Sundays at 9pm, BBC One
“Small Axe is based on the real-life experiences of London’s West Indian community and is set between 1969 and 1982.”
This feels a lot more ‘big screen’ than ‘small screen’ with diretor Steve McQueen and actors such as John Boyega. You can find out more details on the BBC Website here. Sadly, you’ve already missed one episode but there’s more to come.
One Man and His Shoes – Tuesday 17 November, BBC Three
If you have BBC3, this is on tonight! It’s all about the birth of Nike. Not the Goddess of Victory, the shoes obviously.
The Good Lord Bird – Wednesday, Sky Atlantic, 9pm
Did I ever tell you I once met Ethan Hawke in a lift? Or maybe that’s a song. This is currently getting rave reviews from most folks, so you should definitely dip your toe into this 7 part mini-series.
“The Good Lord Bird is told from the point of view of “Onion” (Joshua Caleb Johnson), a fictional enslaved boy who becomes a member of Brown’s motley family of abolitionist soldiers during Bleeding Kansas…”
The Works Presents – Thursday, RTÉ One, 11.10pm
If you don’t love John Kelly, you’re doing something very wrong in life! He’s back and meeting lots of famous folks with stories of life during lockdown and beyond…
“In conversations with John, these key creative forces share their own unique insights into how and why they work in their chosen fields. John explores what inspires them and how it drives them.”
Other TV Shows of Note – Bloody Sunday, 1920 – RTE Player
