Holby City

Tuesday 20 July
8.30-9.30pm BBC ONE

Ric shows Kate, a Trust member tasked with allocating funds left in a will, around Holby, as the medical drama continues. Ric suggests that the funds be invested in the NHS rather than Holbycare. When Michael realises that Ric is getting the better of him both professionally and personally, he comes out fighting by announcing to the ward that he and Annalese are over, and that he's having dinner with Kate later.

Elliot is uncomfortable with all of the attention that his OBE has received and is focusing on avoiding journalists as opposed to treating his patients. Oliver puts him in his place when a patient seriously deteriorates and he needs Elliot to oversee the case. Elliot later apologises to Oliver for being a bad mentor.

Mud sticks and when Mark questions Donna about Sacha's behaviour with the female staff, the rumour mill kicks in. When a patient overhears Donna gossiping they decide they don't want to be treated by Sacha. Jac spins this to her advantage, but in the end it is Jac who stands up for Sacha and quashes the rumours once and for all.

Ric is played by Hugh Quarshie, Kate by Sarah Gallacher, Michael by Hari Dhillon, Annalese by Anna-Louise Plowman, Elliot by Paul Bradley, Oliver by James Anderson, Mark by Robert Powell, Donna by Jaye Jacobs, Sacha by Bob Barrett and Jac by Rosie Marcel.

BBC THREE Tuesday 20 July 2010

Danielle Lineker – My New Stepfamily

Tuesday 20 July
9.00-10.00pm BBC THREE

Stepfamilies are the fastest growing family type in Britain, with as many as one-in-three children experiencing family breakdown by the age of 16, and a third of the overall population being part of a stepfamily situation in one way or another.

Single mother to seven-year-old Ella and a stepchild herself, lingerie model Danielle Bux married Gary Lineker in 2009. In doing so, she became not just a new wife, but a new stepmother to his four boys from his first marriage, including eldest son George who is just 12 years her junior.

Danielle meets other stepchildren and listens to their accounts of the emotional and physical upheaval of trying to survive their parents' marital breakdown, and the establishing of new family units. She hears first-hand stories about integrating into a new stepfamily and how moving between houses and between parents becomes a regular part of new family life.

Through hearing about their experiences, Danielle hopes to gain a deeper understanding of how she relates to her own new stepfamily, and how she brings her daughter and Gary's sons together to form a new family unit. Will the fact that she was a stepchild herself help her, and can Danielle become a model stepmum?

Danielle Lineker – My New Stepfamily is part of BBC Three's Adult Season.

New series

Clare Balding embarks on a pedal-powered odyssey across Britain
Clare Balding embarks on a pedal-powered odyssey across Britain

Clare Balding embarks on a pedal-powered odyssey across Britain to rediscover the magical world of Fifties cycling.

Her journey follows in the wheeltracks of compulsive cyclist and author Harold Briercliffe, whose guidebooks – The Cycling Touring Guides – provide an evocative glimpse of by-passed Britain.

Pedalling Briercliffe's own bike, Clare begins her exploration in North Devon following his Cycling Touring Guide to the South West.

She visits Lynmouth, scene of Britain's worst flooding disaster in 1952; travels on the world's steepest railway up a 500ft cliff to the sister village of Lynton; and explores the unexpectedly mountainous delights of a Devon valley known to the Victorians as "Little Switzerland". It even boasts a population of mountain goats!

She then retraces Briercliffe's tracks through Woody Bay, where local publican David Orton reveals a hidden story of criminality, death and disgrace lying beneath the green tranquillity of this coastal beauty spot.

Then it's downhill to the Hunters Inn, a historic off-the-beaten track pub, before heading off to the secret silver mines of Combe Martin – whose riches were said to be a key factor in the historic English victories at Agincourt, Poitiers and Crecy – and on to the neat seaside town of Ilfracombe, once a more important port than Liverpool.

The town is now reinventing itself, attempting to harness the power of its natural environment through wind farms and the second largest tidal rise in the world.

Utilising the gifts of nature, or falling victim to them, has been a familiar story to this coast for centuries – and a constant theme of Clare's nostalgic cycle ride through this beautiful North Devon coastal landscape.

Britain By Bike is part of BBC Four's celebration of the outdoors – Call Of The Wild.

Terrible Tudor Henry VIII (Ben Willbond) is in fighting mood
Terrible Tudor Henry VIII (Ben Willbond) is in fighting mood

Crazy cave men, terrible Tudors and an all-singing, all-dancing Incan Emperor reveal their horrible and hilarious histories, in the penultimate episode of the highly acclaimed historical comedy sketch show.

A crime scene investigation in the savage Stone Age throws up some very interesting cavemen traditions, including the firing of 17 arrows into the chest of a dead person as a mark of respect and slicing their heads open to remove their brains!

Meanwhile, code breakers in the woeful Second World War struggle to work out their own codes and show off some rather nifty inventions, such as bombs disguised as animal poo.

Terrible Tudor Henry VIII challenges the King of France to a wrestlemania-style showdown, only to face the shame of being beaten when the handsome Frenchman trips him up.

Rounding off the show, a witty ditty details the terrible deeds committed by the Incan Emperor Pachacuti.

Horrible Histories stars Simon Farnaby, Mathew Baynton, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Lawrence Rickard, Ben Willbond, Lawry Lewin, Alice Lowe and Dominique Moore.

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