DIMBLEBY AT SEA ON PBS

Monday, November 21st, 2022

For thousands of years Britain has been shaped by the sea, and our relationship with it has been a crucial part of the British identity and its development, history and culture. In BRITAIN AT SEA (Tuesday 29th – Friday 2nd, 8.30pm), David Dimbleby takes to the water in his beloved red-sailed boat in an attempt to chart Britain’s complex and passionate relationship with the sea, travelling along our coasts and waterways as he visits ports, forts and other places intimately associated with our waters, and explores art, music and literature inspired by it.
From Turner’s seascapes to traditional sea shanties, along the way he’ll uncover the artefacts and meet the people that tell the story of this island nation.

PAST THE TUDORS WITH PBS

Tuesday, November 8th, 2022

For most of the 17th Century, the Stuart dynasty ruled a newly united Britain during a period of religious conflict, civil war and political revolution. When Elizabeth I died, her cousin James VI of Scotland was installed as James I of England. His son, Charles I, was beheaded following a civil war and his family forced into exile.

Even after the Restoration, the family’s fortunes ebbed and flowed; eventually James II was forced from
the throne by his own daughter, Mary, and her husband, William of Orange. Join Dr Clare Jackson for THE STUARTS (Monday 14th – Wednesday 16th, 8.45pm) as she takes viewers through the story of a family who, though an era of political violence and spiritual conflict, helped lay the foundations of the modern UK.

GREAT! MOVIES GETS HALLOWEEN-READY

Friday, October 28th, 2022

Get into the Halloween spirit with these frightening films! Supernatural horror THE CRAFT (Monday 31st, 9pm) stars a pre-Scream Neve Campbell. Sarah (Robin Tunney) has always been different, so as the new girl at St. Benedict’s Academy she immediately falls in with the high school outsiders (Campbell, Fairuza Balk, Rachel True). But these girls won’t settle for being powerless misfits. They have discovered ‘the craft’ and they are going to use it.
Then, at 11.05, Emily Blunt stars in the creepy WIND CHILL. Just before their university campus goes quiet for the winter break, a young woman (Blunt) asks a classmate for a lift home. The two students set
off on their trip and begin to get to know each other. But, when a reckless motorist drives them off the road, they find themselves stranded in the snow on a remote highway. Bad enough, but as the night grows colder, the two are also confronted by a horde of menacing ghosts and struggle to escape with their lives.

NAZI SECRETS ON PBS

Friday, October 28th, 2022

When SS General Hans Kammler, a key figure in the Nazis’ secret weapons programme, vanished in 1945 he was said to have taken his own life. Yet recently discovered documents cast doubt on this claim. Although he oversaw a vast network of underground sites essential to the Nazi war effort, and was instrumental in the construction of concentration camps whose inmates were put to work as forced labourers, his disappearance meant he avoided prosecution for war crimes at Nuremberg.

Absorbing documentary HITLER’S SECRET WEAPONS MANAGER (November 2nd, 9.45pm) investigates the various rumours concerning Kammler’s fate, including the possibility that the Allies considered his knowledge valuable enough to have him covertly spirited away across the Atlantic, behind a convenient smokescreen of mystery and confusion.

CLASSIC O’TOOLE ON GREAT! MOVIES ACTION

Wednesday, October 19th, 2022

The story of T.E. Lawrence, the English officer who successfully united and led the diverse, often warring, Arab tribes during World War I, is told in David Lean’s Oscar-winning, sweeping epic LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (Sunday 23rd, 7pm).
With his knowledge of the local Bedouin tribes, British Lieutenant T.E. Lawrence (Peter O’Toole) is sent to Arabia to seek out Prince Faisal (Alec Guinness) and serve as a liaison between him and the British in
their fight against the Turks. Lawrence rebels against the orders of his superiors and strikes out on a
daring camel journey across the harsh desert to attack a well-guarded Turkish port.

PBS EXPLORES THE AFTERMATH OF WWI

Wednesday, October 19th, 2022

Signed amid hopes that the mass carnage of the First World War would never be repeated, the
1919 Treaty of Versailles was, ironically, to open up seemingly irresolvable conflicts that fester
to this day. This attempt to ensure lasting peace by creating a new world order in which nations
would enjoy self-determination met with insurmountable problems, as this series explains. Noble ideals soon ran up against harsh realities.
Focusing on Eastern Europe and the Middle East, A BLOODY LEGACY (Monday 24th, 6.15pm) shows how ill-considered decisions arrived at a century ago would lay the groundwork for lasting strife. For any true understanding of many present-day conflicts in these regions and elsewhere, it is necessary to examine their roots in the resolutions agreed at Versailles.

SMITHSONIAN DIVES INTO THE GREAT LAKES

Wednesday, October 19th, 2022

At the heart of the US-Canada border sit The Great Lakes – the world’s largest freshwater ecosystem, containing as much as one fifth of the planet’s supply. The water’s journey from source to sea spans half a continent, two thousand miles, and takes more than three centuries to complete. These immense lakes each have their own character and moods. Cold, deep Superior can rage like a furious sea with waves 30ft high. Michigan, plunging far to the south, contains one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. Huron, riddled with islands, is strewn with shipwrecks. Erie picks up the pace as the water hurtles
over Niagara Falls with a force so powerful it grinds 12 inches off the rock face each year. Then Ontario, the most densely populated at the end of the line, bears the brunt of pollution flowing downstream. Finally, the St Lawrence River drains into the largest estuary on Earth, with the mighty Ottawa River and its subterranean caves providing a final flush of freshwater.

This vast watershed nourishes a rich, diverse web of life, above the surface and below. Endangered loons and piping plovers flock here to breed. The surrounding forests and wetlands are home to beavers, wolves and great horned owls. Delicate monarch butterflies and millions of birds must cross the expanse of open water on their epic migrations south. And in the nutrient-rich waters of the Gulf of St Lawrence, fourteen species of whale come to feed. Learn more in GREAT LAKES UNTAMED (Wednesday 19th, 8pm).

But when he’s double-crossed by his crew and left for dead, it’s time for payback.


He forms an unlikely alliance with a woman on the inside, played by Jennifer Lopez, and they hatch a plan to track down the gang and hijack the score of the crew’s latest heist. It’s the perfect film for the Friday Night Film Club!

SMITHSONIAN’S FRESH LOOK AT BEAR CUBS

Wednesday, October 5th, 2022

Montana naturalist and filmmaker Casey Anderson knows grizzly bears better than most. In his twenties, Casey rescued an orphaned cub and created a sanctuary near Bozeman for grizzlies in need of care. Yet Casey is a firm believer that it’s usually better to leave cubs in the wild and let nature take its course. But one day, a call from Alaska forces him to break his own rules. An abandoned cub there will be euthanized unless a home is found. Reluctantly, Casey agrees to take it into his sanctuary where it will live in captivity.

Meanwhile, in the Grand Tetons, Wyoming, a well-known “roadside” bear named Felicia has abandoned her cub, Pepper. With onlookers anxiously watching, Pepper’s struggle plays out when the little cub is forced to fend for himself. As the parallel dramas of Max and Pepper unfold in GROWING UP GRIZZLY (Wednesday 12th, 8pm), we’re forced to decide for ourselves which cub has the better chance of growing up grizzly.

THE HUMAN FACE OF WILDFIRES ON PBS

Wednesday, October 5th, 2022

Cobargo in South-East New South Wales was an unremarkable town until it became the focus of what has been described as ‘Australia’s Black Summer’ – the very human face of the terrible bushfires that tore through Australia in late 2019 and into 2020. Spreading with greater speed and intensity than anyone can remember in Australia’s modern history, the bushfires caused devastation across the continent, creating conditions that were unstoppable, and in many cases, un-survivable.

In HELLFIRE: BATTLE FOR COBARGO (Friday 7th, 7.40pm), eyewitness accounts and previously unseen video chart the progress of the fire, while investigative reporting uncovers the warning signs and inaction that contributed to the deadly bushfires, and document the heartbreaking stories told by those who faced the flames – and survived.

PBS EXPLORES EUROPE’S FORGOTTEN BORDER

Friday, September 2nd, 2022

PBS: UK Premiere Tuesday 13 September 7.20pm

For many, the Berlin Wall is the great symbol of Cold War division, an implacable barrier dividing Eastern Europe from the West. But it wasn’t the only border between Capitalism and Communism.

Between 1945 and 1989 280 people died trying to cross the 809 kilometre border that separated Czechoslovakia from the West, along with an estimated 600 guards, many of whom took their own lives. Today, those who died are receiving belated justice as investigators press charges against the people responsible.

Europe’s Forgotten Border follows some of these cases, as friends and relatives of the victims search for the truth, hoping that the answers to their questions will bring them peace, and help bring the Czech people together.

SMITHSONIAN CELEBRATES ROYAL HISTORY

Monday, August 29th, 2022

Smithsonian: Saturday, 10 September from 4pm

Revisit the history of the British monarchy with:

PRIVATE LIVES OF THE WINDSORS – Nearly 70 years ago, a new monarch ascended the British throne, Queen Elizabeth II. To succeed, she would need the full power and glamour of the Royal Family, but three key figures in her life would complicate that task: her rebellious sister, Princess Margaret; her husband Philip’s power-hungry uncle, Lord Mountbatten; and the royal matriarch: the Queen Mother. Using letters and diaries written by the Windsors, we delve into the stresses and strains of their relationships as the Royal Family faces new challenges in the modern age.

HENRY VIII & THE KING’S MEN – To many, the legacy of King Henry VIII begins and ends with his six wives. But remarkable though his marital history is, it is not what defines him. Just as influential were the men who surrounded him before and during his 37-year reign as King of England. Join host Dr. Tracy Borman as she reveals the story of Britain’s most famous monarch and how his male advisors, ministers, family, and friends moulded his views, shaped his destiny, suffered his ruthlessness, and, in the end, exploited his vulnerability.

Monday, August 29th, 2022

PBS America: Spying On Hitler’s Army: Monday 5 September at 7.35pm

The Second World War would see enormous numbers of captured combatants on both sides confined to POW camps. Officers fared better than ordinary soldiers – some higher-ranking Germans in British custody were even lucky enough to end up incarcerated in former stately homes.

However, unbeknown to these particular captives, their conversations were being monitored through hidden microphones, and they let slip far more than just name, rank and serial number. With their guard down, their inner thoughts were carefully recorded, as was their complicity in crimes against humanity.

From this clandestine campaign emerged military secrets that would help the Allies gain victory. Over 70 years on, historic transcripts reveal the startling extent of this information gleaned from eavesdropping on the enemy.

The man is a poor dentist, and her wealthy English family are disapproving of him and his lack of family name. Lilia dies giving birth to their son, so her two English relatives travel to Italy to take care of and gain custody of the baby. The pair expect everything to go smoothly with no trouble from the father, but that’s far from what the pair find when they arrive in Italy.

Hey there, Georgy Girl! This charming comedy drama, set in 1960s swinging London, is both hilarious and heart breaking. Lynn Redgrave got a well deserved Best Actress nomination for playing the title role, a somewhat dowdy, but incredibly vivacious young woman who is just itching to explore life. But she faces a dilemma when she’s pursued by her father’s older employer and the young lover of her promiscuous, pregnant flatmate . Also starring great British talent including Charlotte Rampling, Alan Bates, and James Mason, the film features the infectious theme song “Georgy Girl” by the Seekers.

Discover fascinating archive footage from Down Under, painstakingly restored and brought to vivid life with the addition of colour for a 21st-century audience.

Offering valuable insights into Australia’s social, political and economic history, this celluloid treasure trove tells the story of a nation gradually gaining confidence, producing its own sporting heroes and cultural icons.

By including the voices of Indigenous and other women, people all but absent from the traditional historic record, AUSTRALIA IN COLOUR presents a clearer picture of the sometimes harsh reality of the past. It shows how a society that started out as a penal colony faced numerous challenges as, during the course of a century, it grew into a unique, complex and cosmopolitan country.

SMITHSONIAN REACHES FOR THE SKIES

Wednesday, August 17th, 2022

Aviation Stunt – Saturday, 27 August 27 from 4pm

Fly through the skies and discover how some of the fastest and biggest planes in aviation get off the ground, featuring episodes of:

AIR WARRIORS – The British bomber that broke the back of Nazi Germany with a fearless crew and an earthquake bomb. The ugly-duckling fighter aircraft that transformed into one of the most versatile and effective military planes of the late 20th century. The “Little Bird” chopper, able to land in places no helicopter can—or should—land. This series takes you behind the scenes to reveal the origin stories of the military’s most iconic aircraft. We examine the unique features that make them so deadly and effective, meet the men and women who fly and maintain them, and show through rare, archival footage and compelling testimonies how they’ve overcome incredible obstacles to become kings of the sky.

BREAKING THE SOUND BARRIER – Sleek, powerful and bullet fast, the Bell X-1 was designed to accomplish one feat: break the sound barrier. In the years before this top-secret aircraft was built, the race to reach Mach 1 resulted in many destroyed planes and claimed lives. But these rocket scientists and military flyers refused to be denied. This is the story of how, against all odds, this little, lightning-fast plane forged the mythology of the American test pilot and blazed a trail for experimental aircraft everywhere.

GREAT! MOVIES CLASSIC WEDNESDAY 26TH JULY AT 9 PM

Evita triumphs! The impressive musical stage show by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Tim Rice is brought to the big screen in this stunning adaptation directed by Alan Parker.

There may have been controversy over the casting of Madonna in the lead role, but she breathes new life into the part of Eva Peron, a woman who was loved and hated in equal measure.

Written by Parker and Oliver Stone, Evita also stars Jonathan Pryce as Eva’s husband Juan Perón, and Antonio Banderas as Ché, an everyman who is cleverly worked in to all the scenes to act as the film’s narrator. The acclaimed film depicts the life of Eva Perón, detailing her beginnings, rise to fame, political career and death at the age of 33.

SMITHSONIAN TAKES US BACK TO THE ANCIENT WORLD

Friday, July 8th, 2022

Stunt – Saturday, 30 July from 4pm

Venture back to the days of samurais and Vikings and explore the civilizations of the past, including:

SECRETS OF THE CELTIC GRAVE – The Roman Empire’s invasion of Britain in 43 A.D. marked one of the most violent and transformative periods in the nation’s history. Tales of how Claudius’ armies defeated kingdom after kingdom are well known, but a recent discovery of an ancient burial site in Wales has changed the story of the Roman conquest and shed light on the strength of the Celtic resistance. Follow archaeologists as they unearth evidence buried in the ground for 2,000 years and reveal new secrets about Britain’s transition from the Iron Age to Roman rule.

LEGEND OF THE CRYSTAL SKULLS – The Hollywood blockbuster “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” is a fictionalised account of the legend of the crystal skulls. Now this exciting docudrama traces the true story of the world’s celebrated crystal skulls and state-of-the-art technology finally reveals their ancient secrets. Crystal skulls have a devoted following who believe in their mystical (and perilous) powers and a Mayan legend of 13 skulls coming together in a time of great peril to save mankind by divulging the secret knowledge of all ages. Today there are a handful of crystal skull relics, including one at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.  This is the story of curator Jane MacLauren Walsh’s 16-year quest to trace the origins of the 31-pound crystal skull mailed anonymously to the museum in 1992. Walsh’s investigation takes her from ancient Mesoamerica to archives across Europe and the Americas, where she traces legend and makes comparisons to other skulls and to pre-Columbian Aztec and Mixtec rock crystal artefacts. But the skulls are perfectly designed to confound researchers. Made of quartz crystal, they contain no carbon, essential to dating. Walsh and her colleagues faced a formidable challenge, pitting science against the supernatural. Join them as they uncover the truth behind one of the world’s most enduring mysteries… that of the mythical crystal skulls.

Martha turns to her sister Lucy (Sarah Paulson), who along with her husband Ted (Hugh Dancy), offers to take her in. During her stay with them, Martha seems unfocused about what she will do with her life and struggles to re assimilate. Martha starts to spiral, struggling to separate her dreams from reality and dealing with the haunting memories of her past uncontrollably resurfacing.

Lucy and Ted soon realise that she may need more help than anyone is able to give her and consider that Martha could be a risk to not only themselves but to herself.

From the Canadian wilderness to urban America and the backyards of Britain, scientists reveal unexpected and astounding discoveries from the year of the pandemic.

In all kinds of ways, the natural world was soon demonstrating its remarkable ability to rebound.

See Miami Go Wild On Smithsonian

Saturday, May 14th, 2022

Smithsonian: Premiere – Wednesday, 25 May at 8pm


Welcome to the wild side of Miami, where peacocks strut in the streets, giant iguanas throng the canal banks and colourful parakeets wreak havoc in the power lines. The melting pot of Miami is home to myriad species hailing from distant shores, many of which aren’t welcome.

Here, invasive species—often released as unwanted pets or arriving as unwitting stowaways in international cargo — vie for space alongside the locals, all thriving in the tropical climate of Southern Florida.

Set in a neighbourhood park, Miami Wild follows a diverse cast of furry, feathered, finned and scaly characters struggling to carve out territory, find new mates and raise their families.

Voiced by Miami’s own Gloria Estefan, this tale of international immigrants plays out to an up-tempo score inspired by Miami’s rich musical heritage.

When the tomb of Tutankhamun was opened on 17 February 1923, the world was awed by the

discovered and then taken from the pharaoh’s tomb.

This endearing fantasy romance comes straight from the brilliant mind of director Tim Burton.

That is until Avon lady Peggy Boggs (Dianne Wiest) comes to call. Venturing up to the castle, Peggy invites lonely Edward down and dazzles her placid suburban neighbours with Edward’s extraordinary
ability for topiary design and flair for hair styling. Edward becomes a town celebrity and soon finds himself drawn to Peggy’s weary but sympathetic daughter, Kim (Winona Ryder), who happens to be dating Jim (Anthony Michael Hall), the neighbourhood bully who takes a strong dislike towards Edward.

LIVING IN GERMANY AT WAR

PBS: UK PREMIERE Monday 9 May & Tuesday 10 May at 7.35pm

When the Second World War began in September 1939, the idea of war was deeply unpopular amongst the German population. Yet by April 1945, when the war was clearly lost, they were fighting to the bitter end for the Nazi regime.

Jerome Prieur’s award-winning documentary series attempts to understand the seismic shift in German public opinion, drawing exclusively on archive material to recount the daily lives of both civilians and soldiers during the six years of World War 2.

From soldiers writing to their fiancées to World War I veterans, members of Hitler Youth to persecuted Jews, letters, diaries and eyewitness accounts reveal what it was like for the men and women living in Germany at war.
