|Nureyev – From Russia With Love |
Nureyev – From Russia With Love
This feature-length performance
documentary breaks new ground in exploring
the formative years of Rudolf Nureyev, one of
the most glamorous icons of the 20th century,
who brought classical ballet centre stage.
This intimate psychological portrait uses previously unseen
footage of Nureyev's performances at the Kirov Theatre in
Leningrad to reveal him as a breathtaking star in Russia long
before he became famous in the West.
With the help of his friends and colleagues at the time, this
moving and often funny film by John Bridcut (who directed the
acclaimed Britten's Children for BBC Two in 2004) shows how
Nureyev's rebellious temperament and fanatical devotion to his
art made his defection from the Soviet Union in 1961 inevitable.
Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure – The New World
Wine expert Oz Clarke and Top Gear's James May team up

beer drinker James into a wine aficionado as they motor
their way around some of the New World’s most stunning
The odd couple travel across this vast and varied country in
their all-American Winnebago, though they ditch the mobile
home on arrival at each base in favour of more fitting
vehicles, including a classic Cadillac in which they cruise
the Pacific Coast Highway.
Oz And James's Big Wine Adventure aims to entertain while
giving viewers a fascinating array of information and takeout
tips along the way.
The Peter Serafinowicz Show
Comic actor Peter Serafinowicz (Look Around
You, Hardware, Spaced) morphs into a visual
cacophony of characters in this off the wall
comedy sketch show.
Through his impressions of familiar faces, Serafinowicz creates
a wacky world in which the likes of Al Pacino mingle with his
own quirky creations, such as impressively incompetent
private investigator Brian Butterfield.
Taking a satirical look at the best and worst of today's TV, The
Peter Serafinowicz Show also hosts television’s most futile game
shows, including Heads Or Tails and Which Hand Is It In?, and
offers "celebrity" interviews on O! News that can't be seen
Raymond Blanc – flamboyant Frenchman, king of
cookery and Michelin-starred restaurateur –
turns the heat up on nine hopeful couples as he
challenges them to run their own restaurant, in a
brand-new television event.
Married couples, siblings or best friends, the twosomes face the toughest of
all business challenges – managing a successful restaurant. Every decision,
every mistake and every argument they have is caught on camera.
They must work and live together 24 hours a day. Each week, one of the restaurants is
eliminated from the competition by Raymond Blanc and his panel of
"inspectors" – Lee Cash, Sarah Willingham and John Lederer.
Only one couple can win the dream prize – their own restaurant financially
backed and personally supported by Raymond with a six-figure sum of his own money.
The series is an uncompromising, but entertaining, insight into the
business of restaurant management, bringing with it the incredible
pressure of living and working with a partner, learning how to cook,
managing staff and a reminder that the customer is always right!
Steve Coogan returns for a new series as Tommy
Saxondale, the world-travelled ex-roadie with
anger-management issues and his own pest control
business in Stevenage.
Still living with his girlfriend Magz (Ruth Jones),
proprietress of an anarchic T-shirt shop, and still
with his naïve assistant Raymond (Rasmus Hardiker),
Tommy continues to wage war on pests large and
But, more importantly, Tommy is more
determined than ever to carry on his one-man
mission to smash the "system", confront "The Man"
and bring him to his knees.
Throughout the series, Tommy continues to be
antagonised by Vicky (Morwenna Banks); defends
the rights of squatters on his housing estate; takes
care of a suicidal man; represents himself in court
over an unpaid fine; and gets his bottom stuck to
a chair in a private school.
Stephen Fry – HIV & Me
Following on from his widely acclaimed series,
the secret life of the manic depressive,
Stephen Fry tackles the largely forgotten
world of HIV and Aids.
In the early Eighties, little was known about Aids or how to treat
it. The focus was restricted to certain groups, including gay men,
and Stephen watched as friends became infected and died.
On a personal journey, Stephen explores the situation today and
finds that, although effective medication is now available, a third of
those infected don't know they are positive. He also finds new
infections are rising.
To illustrate the changing face of the virus, Stephen meets up with
an HIV-positive grandmother, a 16-year-old schoolgirl who has had
HIV since birth and HIV-positive couples who have given birth to
He also meets celebrities Andy Bell, George
Michael and Scissor Sister Ana Matronic to hear their personal
stories about HIV.
