RTE brings us the BBC's Who Do You Think You Are? by way of spud hunting. Here, three well known individuals; broadcaster and financial advisor, Eddie Hobbs; model and business owner, Jasmine Guinness; and journalist, John Waters; all set out on a misty eyed journey to trace their own family back to this seminal event. Aided by genealogical research, the trio discovers what choices their ancestors might have made, or were forced to make, in order to keep starvation from the door - how they preserved the lives of themselves and their children so future generations could survive and live in the affluent Ireland we enjoy today. If you'd rather steep yourself in a depiction of today's Ireland; Raw is a new drama set in a Dublin restaurant starting at 9.30pm over on RTE2.
