In a world where everyone is striving for what is not worth having, orphan Becky Sharp sets out to claw her way to the top of English society.
Written by Gwyneth Hughes, this 7-episode Vanity Fair is a new adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s 19th century literary classic.

This four-part series follows Martin Clunes as he travels round the islands and coasts of the USA, meeting people and getting to know about their lives and cultures and stories.
Over the course for four episodes, we will be taking a playful yet informative look at the complexities and intricacies of island and coastal life across America. We weave together stories of wildlife conservation, culture, food, history to create a varied, light-hearted and informative series. From the epic salmon runs of Kodiak Island to the dunes and fun-seekers of Fire Island; from the orca playgrounds of the San Juan Islands, to the creole swamps of Georgia and Louisiana; from the wild and the primitive to the sophisticated and the urbane; from the grizzly bear to the land of latter-day ‘great Gatsbies’.....each island stop has its own character and its own unique story to tell.....and each one offers a new way of examining a country we imagine we know so well.
Starting in in the frigid waters of Alaska, Martin works his way south along the coast of Washington State and California, before crossing to Louisiana, Florida, and Georgia. Finally, his journey – by boat and plane – steers him north up past Long Island, bringing him to the coast of New England long before the leaves begin to turn.
Along the way, he rides with saltwater cowboys on Assateague; entesr a hot dog eating contest on Coney Island; fishes for giant halibut off the Alaskan coast; joins a gospel choir with the isolated descendants of plantation slaves; he shucks clams, dives with seals and samples life on an island which hasn’t had a shop since 1942.
Few things in life can be relied upon, but the drama, humour and wildly disparate personalities of Doc Martin and Portwenn are always guaranteed to bring joy to viewers everywhere.
As we join the Doctor in this eighth season, we find his relationship with his wife Louisa back on a more even keel, although juggling their jobs with baby care is proving more challenging daily. Meanwhile Bert and Al Large face challenges of their own, with brewing whisky and running a B&B not quite turning out as they had hoped; Mrs Tishell suffers a terrible and unexpected setback in her life; and Penhale, already facing romantic challenges, faces a mini crime spree and decides to host a Police Open Day. Newcomers to the village include a new curate as well as Morwenna’s parents, Jack and Tara who worked as missionaries in Kenya; and the village sees the return of Beth, the American tourist and veterinarian Angela Sim.
And swimming through the maelstrom of it all is Doctor Ellingham, suffering humanity’s foibles with little tolerance and suffering literally with a newly adopted dog, against his better judgment, underfoot

Glossy musical portrayal of Nazi Germany produced by Disney, in which a group of teenagers calling themselves the 'Swing Kids' express their rebellion against Hitler's regime by adopting American and British fashion, modes of speech and the swing music prevalent in the US in the late 30s and early 40s, but banned in pre-war Germany. Half drama, half musical, the film follows the escapades of Peter (Robert Sean Leonard), Thomas (Christian Bale) and Arvid (Frank Whaley) as their initially secret swing sessions become increasingly bold - and they are ultimately forced to decide between safety and freedom, family and politics.

Rose Theatre owner Philip Henslowe (Geoffrey Rush) is desperate that Will's new play - tentatively entitled Romeo and Ethel the Pirate's Daughter - be finished, whilst a new cast member, Thomas Kent, is equally eager to make his stage debut.

Martin Clunes is happy to admit that with Mary, it was love at first sight; her soft, brown eyes, her perfect figure and that unstoppable wagging tail. As cocker spaniels go, she was perfect. Mary was soon joined in the Clunes' household by Tina, another cocker, and Arthur, a black Labrador. Reminiscent of "Marley & Me," the dynamics between the three dogs makes hilarious reading--puppy classes, Scrufts, and the competition for top dog status (and even Martin has to fight for this), which leads to visits from a dog psychologist. His passion for dogs inspired Martin to embark on a journey of discovery about their ancestors, both wild--the painted dogs of Tanzania--and extremely tame--the members of the Beverley Hills Mutt Club. With his trademark warmth and humor, Martin describes meeting a worldwide cast of doggie characters, and how humans have shaped the dog world as we know it today. One thing is certain--he will never see Mary, Tina, and Arthur in quite the same way again.

Two adventures from the early 1980s with Peter Davison starring as the Time Lord. In 'Kinda' (1982), the Doctor (Davison), Tegan (Janet Fielding), Adric (Matthew Waterhouse) and Nyssa (Sarah Sutton) land on paradisical Deva Loka, for rest and recuperation. However, the military expediton on the planet has lost several crew members, and the Doctor and Adric are taken hostage by the near hysterical Hindle. Meanwhile, Tegan's dreams have provided the gateway to an ancient evil, the snake-like Mara. The Doctor must prevent the Mara from taking over the Kinda and destroying the expedition, as the wheel of creation begins to turn. In 'Snakedance' (1983), a loose sequel to 'Kinda', Tegan must have made a mistake when she was setting the co-ordinates for the TARDIS, because the Doctor certainly hadn't intended landing on Manussa. When the Doctor learns that Manussa was once the home of the Sumaran Empire, he realises that an evil force has begun to take over Tegan's will. This force, the Mara, is planning to use Tegan as a vehicle to retake power on Manussa. Just as the celebrations to commemorate the destruction of the Sumaran Empire by the Federation are about to take place, the Legend of Mara is about to come true.
