  4. When Welsh wildlife is in trouble, it's often humans who are to blame although nature and the weather can also take their toll. Dr Rhys Jones is back with a brand new series of Rhys to the Rescue on BBC One Wales, Wednesdays at 7:30pm. Reptile and animal handling expert, Dr Rhys Jones. In episode one, currently available on BBC iPlayer, Rhys deals with an escaped snake in a bathroom, a big cat sighting and a lonely chimp! Next week, Rhys rescues two tawny owl chicks found in the middle of a wood in Cwmbran. Had they become distressed and disorientated during a recent storm or taken and later abandoned by humans? His next call is to Caerleon to see a grass snake, before travelling to Bridgend to save a Manx shearwater and attempt to release it back into the wild off cliffs at Southerndown.

  5. Astronomy will be brought down to earth in a special moment of live stargazing that will motivate the nation to look up at the wonders that fill our skies every night of the year. The three episodes on BBC Two, stripped over the three consecutive nights of 3 - 5 January will be presented by Prof Brian Cox, Dara O Briain and One Show astronomer Mark Thompson whilst Liz Bonin is live from Hawaii. In his own inimitable fashion, Brian shows how anyone can be an astronomer, as he encourages the audience to set off on their own journey of discovery. This event is being planned to coincide with a series of three exciting celestial events that should be visible to amateurs and experts alike in the UK (weather permitting!). Each of these events will provide an ideal way to theme each programme including the appearance of Jupiter in conjunction with Uranus for the first time since the 14th Century, a spectacular partial solar eclipse and the Quadrantid Meteor Shower. The presenters will answer questions, request photographs of the sky from the audience and use demonstrations and real-time astronomical images to guide the nation's amateur astronomers across the skies. There will be plenty of resources on offer such as downloadable star charts and audio guides to get you started and plenty of events happening throughout Wales.
