All New Total Wipeout Ep 6/8

Saturday 1 May
5.25-6.25pm BBC ONE

Twenty more intrepid British souls head to Argentina in search of sun, sport and the sweet smell of success on the silliest obstacle course in the world, as Richard Hammond and co-host Amanda Byram present the sixth in the current series of All New Total Wipeout.

Most hopefuls will return with nothing more than a bruised body and ego along with some rope burns, but one will be £10,000 richer and the proud holder of the prestigious title of Total Wipeout Champion.

There's an all-new qualifier this week, as contestants battle against the Catwalk Sweeper designed to knock them clean off their feet. They will also be swinging from the ceilings on the curiously named Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah and bounced into oblivion, as always, on the Big Red Balls.

Twelve contestants take on the terrifying Crash Mountain; five are spun senseless on Dizzy Dummies; and just three will be left to pit their wits, if they have any left, against the stupendously difficult Wipeout Zone.

Will Michael Jackson fanatic Troy from Dundee produce a Thriller of a performance, or will he be plain Bad? Can hairdresser Ed from Sussex cut it and will cat lover Bonny from Luton pull off a purr-fect run, or will it end in cat-astrophe?

On what would have been Harry's first birthday, Adam and Lyn, who has been wounded, are being held at gunpoint by Lyn's bitter ex-husband, Vince.

Feeling that he has nothing left to lose, Adam makes an agreement with Vince – it's his life for Lyn's. After she is released and taken to hospital, Adam stays to face his fate.

Although some kind words from paramedic Polly and a heart-to-heart with Vince persuade Adam that he may have something to live for after all, Vince reveals that he has rigged the farmhouse to explode when the heating clicks on. All Adam can do is hope to persuade Vince to get them out before the house goes up in flames.

I'm In A Rock 'n' Roll Band! – The Singer Ep 1/6

New series
Saturday 1 May
9.40-10.40pm BBC TWO (Schedule addition 21 April)

From the first time they play live to their dying day, rock 'n' roll bands are loved by millions of people who keep a special place in their hearts for their favourite groups and musicians.

Now, BBC Two presents a new six-part series investigating what makes the perfect rock 'n' roll band.

As part of a multi-platform project with BBC Radio 2 and, the series dissects the traditional band, looking at what makes each of the individual members tick, and culminating in a live studio show in June, in which industry experts discuss their favourite musicians before creating the ultimate fantasy band.

This first programme examines the role of the singer, often the mouthpiece of the band and the gateway to the fans. Untouchable yet one of the people; extrovert yet shy offstage; unutterably ugly yet a pin-up to thousands, they all have a lingering impact on people's lives.

Examining the role of the leader, this documentary delves into what makes them such a success, looking at the aesthetics behind the faces and uncovering the roots of their enduring appeal.

It also explores the pressures of being the leader, the stage personas and the hiring and firing, as well as the relationships they develop with their fellow bandmates and the fans. Highlighting great singers, the programme journeys through some of the greatest rock 'n' roll stories of the last 50 years.

Narrated by Mark Radcliffe, I'm In A Rock 'n' Roll Band! includes contributions from Jon Bon Jovi, Siouxsie Sioux, Shirley Manson, Roger Daltrey, Matt Bellamy, Alice Cooper, Bob Geldof, Noddy Holder, Sting and many more.
