Holby City

Tuesday 5 January
8.00-9.00pm BBC ONE

Faye hopes that if she throws herself into her work, it will help her get over her grief for Archie, as the medical drama continues. Being back in the hospital where Archie died, though, only intensifies her need for answers. Against Joseph's advice, Faye finds a quiet place to talk to Lauren and asks her why she killed her son. Later, Lauren is brought into Holby as a patient...

Meanwhile, a chilled-out Ric returns to work after his suspension and Jac sees an opportunity to retain her consultant status and share his patient list. However, she unintentionally upsets him by undermining him in theatre, so he blocks her promotion.

Chrissie bumps into Sacha Levy, with whom she recently went on a date, and discovers that he is covering a shift at Holby. She is surprised to see him and tries to avoid him. But, when he asks to see her again, he realises that she is pregnant – and that the child is his.

Faye is played by Patsy Kensit Healy, Joseph by Luke Roberts, Lauren by Riann Steele, Ric by Hugh Quarshie, Jac by Rosie Marcel and Chrissie by Tina Hobley.

BBC TWO Tuesday 5 January 2010

Great British Railway Journeys Ep 2/20

Monday 4 to Friday 8 January
6.30-7.00pm BBC TWO (Schedule addition 10 December)

In the second leg of his first journey from Liverpool to Scarborough, Michael Portillo visits "cottonpolis" – George Bradshaw's home town of Manchester – as the series that explores how the railways changed the nation continues.

Meeting up with tour guide Jonathan Schofield, Michael finds out how the world's first railway helped to turn Manchester's cotton industry into a global success.

Michael then takes the train out to Denton in the suburbs of Manchester. This was once the centre of the hat-making world, turning out thousands of hats which were transported all over the country on the railways. Here, Michael meets Karen Turner from Failsworth Hats, the last remaining hat factory in the area. Karen fits Michael for his own custom-made trilby which, some say, was invented here, and he finds out where the phrase "mad as a hatter" came from.

Back in the centre of Manchester, historian Trefor Thomas tells Michael more about Bradshaw and how he came to produce the world's first pocket railway timetables.

Leaving Manchester for Bury, Michael meets businessman Tony Rogers to find out how the railways helped to create the national institution of fish and chips. The railways allowed fish to travel quickly inland and it soon became available everywhere, allowing fish and chip shops to flourish all over Britain. Tony runs a fish and chip shop supply business and takes Michael to one of the best shops in the area for a fish supper.

Student nurse Zoey, meanwhile, questions whether or not nursing is the right career path for her – a question prompted after a severed ear floats up in the toilet.

Jackie is played by Edie Falco, Kevin by Dominic Fumusa, Grace by Ruby Jerins, Mrs Akalitus by Anna Deavere Smith and Zoey by Merritt Wever.
