7.00-8.00pm BBC TWO and BBC HD
Andrew Graham-Dixon visits the National Gallery
Andrew Graham-Dixon visits the National Gallery

The Culture Show this week comes from the Science Museum with a whole programme dedicated to the relationship between science and art.

Andrew Graham-Dixon visits the National Gallery, which is showcasing its collection of 40 or so pieces of fake art, misattributed art, and previously lost masterpieces which have been discovered through the work of their pioneering science and conservation departments.

Michael Smith visits the Wellcome Collection, founded by obsessive Victorian collector Henry Wellcome, to explore the connections between medicine, life and art. Michael is also given a sneak preview of the bizarre and disturbing artefacts of the Foundation's new show, Skin.

Mark Kermode meets mathematician and movie buff Marcus Du Sautoy to discuss how films have influenced perceptions of science, advancement and the image of much-maligned scientists – usually portrayed as evil, insane or just plain geeks.

Writer Will Self explores the science of geology, taking a walk along the East Riding coast, the fastest-eroding coastline in Britain, and ponders the connections between science, memory, art and the BBC's Nationwide programme.

Architectural critic Tom Dyckhoff takes a trip to one of the world's first material libraries, set in the engineering division of King's College London, and takes a closer look at some of the amazing properties that could shape and inspire the architecture of the future.

Clemency Burton-Hill talks to Conrad Shawcross, the artist-in-residence at the Science Museum, about his new sculpture for the Oxford Science Park. She finds out why he is inspired by the failed quests and calculations of scientists from the past.

And finally, art critic Ben Lewis attempts to apply the science of psychometrics to assess people's attitudes towards the future of art and constructs a questionnaire with the help of leading opinion pollsters and social scientists to find out what the art world really thinks.

The Culture Show is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat 108, Freeview 50, Sky 143 and Virgin 108.

BBC THREE Thursday 10 June 2010

Stanley Park

High Definition programme
Thursday 10 June
9.00-9.30pm BBC THREE and BBC HD
Holliday Grainger stars as Dirty Debbie in one of BBC Three's bold new pilots
Holliday Grainger stars as Dirty Debbie in one of BBC Three's bold new pilots

The poignant and often hilarious exploits of "Dirty" Debbie, "Raggedy" Ann and "Bent" Ben, a group of young friends growing up in Stanley Place, is one of the new bold pilots commissioned by BBC Three for 2010.

Written by Leo Richardson, Stanley Park demonstrates the channel's continued support of original UK drama and commitment to experimentation.

Sassy fashion designer Debbie lives with her gin-swigging, serial internet-dating Auntie Pat. Debbie's outfits are as outrageous as the erotic fiction she writes and her confident air fuels her belief that no man can resist her charms.

Across the road from Debbie lives emo Ann, who is convinced that she was a Bohemian poet in a past life. Ann's on-off romance with Lee Stevens, a typical "boy" who always seems to get things wrong, provides her with enough angst to keep her poetry flowing.

Ann's fabulous, Beyonce-loving best friend Ben is always on hand to provide a shoulder to cry on and a constant source of advice, but Ben would do well to counsel himself occasionally.

As the residents of Stanley Park go about their everyday lives, Harry "the hottie" winks at Debbie as she walks home and sets in motion a chain of events that will change everything and everyone in the street forever.

Stanley Park premières online at on Thursday 3 June.

Holliday Grainger plays Dirty Debbie, Jennie Jacques plays Raggedy Ann, Richard Southgate plays Bent Ben, Sharon Horgan plays Auntie Pat, Jack Cole plays Lee Stevens, Nick Blood plays Harry Stevens, Morwenna Banks plays Julie Stevens, David Kennedy plays Rob Stevens and Antonia Thomas plays Sadie.

Stanley Park is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat 108, Freeview 50, Sky 143 and Virgin 108.

High Definition programme
Thursday 10 June
9.30-10.00pm BBC THREE and BBC HD (Schedule addition 24 May)

Dappers is a 30-minute pilot written by Catherine Johnson for BBC Three starring Ty Glaser and Lenora Crichlow as best friends Faye and Ashley, two young mums living on benefits in Bristol.

When their cash-in-hand pub-cleaning job comes to a messy end, they are determined to find another enterprising idea to make lots of money. Ashley suggests dog-walking but Faye has a bigger plan – Woofitys Doggy Day-Care For Cared-For Dogs. There's just one small problem; they can't really keep a pack of dogs in their housing-association flats in uptown Clifton. So the girls persuade Wendy and Barney, the eccentric occupants of the basement flat, to let them have the run of the garden.

As payday approaches with a cheery "kerching", disaster strikes. Gizmo, the pug, goes missing and Faye and Ashley have to use all their ingenuity to get out of the looming crisis. Their daughters' dads – Faye's ex, Marco, the nightclub owner, and Ashley's boyfriend, Ryan, the cheeky chancer – are hauled into the shenanigans.

Next door, Ben and Anna are glumly ruing the day they moved to laid-back Bristol – they hadn't bargained on Faye and Ashley as neighbours and they're fast coming to the end of their tether with the noise, parking and dog poo. As everything comes to a head, changes are in store for Faye and Ashley when Marco and Ryan reveal the secrets of the night before…

Faye is played by Ty Glaser, Ashley by Lenora Crichlow, Wendy by Gwen Taylor, Barney by Eddie Large, Marco by Tom Ellis, Ryan by Jack Ashton, Ben by Darren Boyd and Anna by Olivia Poulet.

Dappers is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat 108, Freeview 50, Sky 143 and Virgin 108.

Lee Nelson's Well Good Show Ep 1/6

New programme
Thursday 10 June
10.30-11.00pm BBC THREE (Schedule addition 25 May)

BBC Three welcomes viewers to the world of the irrepressible Lee Nelson in this brand-new comedy show. The loveable south-London tearaway fronts his Well Good Show, getting in among the studio audience to entertain them with cheeky banter, tales of mischief-making and all manner of daft games – assisted by his best friend, "fat legend" Omelette.

In between the studio-based chaos, Lee takes time out to introduce the audience to some of his favourite TV shows including: 110% Bent, a fly-on-the-wall documentary about preening footballer Jason Bent – one of the Premier League’s brightest talents; Hospital Life, a behind-the-scenes look at one of Britain’s worst performing NHS hospitals with bungling medic Dr Bob; and Faliraki Nights in which unhinged holiday rep Chris Young give Brits abroad the time of their lives in this bottom-of-the-barrel expose of the Faliraki holiday scene.

Back in the studio, audience members are put through their paces in various games (all with a Lee twist), and regular slot Old People Do Fun Stuff sees, well ... old people doing fun stuff.

There are Herculean tasks of humiliation set for Lee’s best mate in Omelette’s Peer Pressure Challenge, and Lee’s Nan closes the show with her own inimitably awful interpretations of top chart bangers.

Viewers are warned to brace themselves for some "well good" fun as Lee unleashes his anarchic brand of good-natured ribbing, dubious life-lessons and general scallywaggery.
