Mad Men
Mad Men

BBC Four puts science at the heart of its Autumn/Winter schedule


Mad Men


Set in Sixties New York, this sexy, stylised and provocative drama follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising - an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell.


Returning for its second season, the Golden Globe®-winning and Emmy-nominated series for Best TV drama and actor (Jon Hamm) continues to blur the lines between truth and lies, perception and reality.


With the advertising world moving in a new direction, will the Sterling Cooper Agency be able to keep up?


Meanwhile, the private life of Don Draper is becoming increasingly complex.


Executive produced and written by Matthew Weiner, season two features a returning cast including Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, January Jones and Christina Hendricks.


Featured guest stars include John Slattery and legendary stage and screen star Robert Morse.


Mad Men also stars Michael Gladis, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer and Bryan Batt.




Spiral 2


The hard-hitting, stylish and critically acclaimed French police thriller returns for a second series as Pierre Clement and Police Captain Laure Berthaud descend into the paranoid rivalries of the drug trafficking underworld.


Unflinchingly realistic and nail-bitingingly tense, the series follows the investigators into the dark and uncompromising world of organised crime.


As a seemingly isolated case of urban violence grows in complexity and danger, each new piece of evidence unearths a duplicitous world of international trafficking, informers, double lives and arms dealing.


Each with a different vision of justice, each with their own personal demons, the characters become ever darker, disillusioned and warped.


As the heart-racing suspense builds, an audacious plan to strike at the heart of the crime network means that the slightest slip will result in certain death.
