Clem is determined to find out why his wife’s submersible is on the Volos, as the blockbuster thriller set thousands of feet below the Arctic ice, starring James Nesbitt, Minnie Driver and Goran Visnjic, continues.

The Orpheus crew tries to placate the Russians but, when the nuclear reactor looks set to blow, divisions are reaffirmed. The only way to stop the nuclear reactor from overheating is for someone to go in and manually change one of the control rods.

Everyone pulls straws – who will have to put their life on the line in order to save the rest of the crew? Or will Svetlana’s plan to try to recover the motherboard from the wreck of the Hermes stop this tragic sacrifice from taking place?

Sophie has won more beauty pageants than any other teenager in the UK

The fortunes of Britain's most lauded beauty queen, teenager Sophie, as she flies across the pond to take on the Americans at their own game, are followed in the fourth episode of Baby Beauty Queens.

Thirteen-year-old Sophie has won more beauty pageants than any other teenager in Britain. Having racked up 17 titles in the UK, Sophie wants a fresh challenge and so she's heading to Texas, home to the world's glitziest pageants, to compete in one of the largest of them all: the Universal Royalty National Pageant of America. How will she fare against young American girls who have been doing this for most of their lives?

Sophie hasn't always been obsessed with pageants. Until a year ago, she was a music scholar at a prestigious private school. Sophie's transformation from shy, studious schoolgirl to appearance-conscious beauty queen has been supported by her mum, Joy. Following Sophie and Joy on their ambitious adventure into the competitive and crazy world of American child beauty pageants, this film explores why, for Sophie, being a beauty queen is so important.

Part of BBC Three's Adult Season, Baby Beauty Queens explores the pressures on young people to grow up too quickly by shining a spotlight on life for aspiring pageant queens and child models in an image-obsessed Britain.

Britain By Bike – The Cotswolds Ep 5/6

Tuesday 17 August
8.30-9.00pm BBC FOUR

Clare Balding continues her journey around Britain By Bike
Clare Balding continues her journey around Britain By Bike

Cycling author Harold Briercliffe was unimpressed by the attractions of the rural Cotswolds, despite its idyllic image, so Clare Balding follows in his wheel tracks to discover the reality, as her journey around Britain By Bike continues.

The village of Broadway may be known as the "jewel of the Cotswolds" but, to Harold, it was slightly precious and over-preened. From the village's souvenir and tea shops, Clare heads to the gothic folly of Broadway Tower – a mock castle with commanding views across this timeless landscape, which was the country hideaway of Arts and Crafts pioneer William Morris.

She then heads south to The Slaughters and Bourton-on-the Water and on to Burford, whose magnificent Church of St John The Baptist was funded by profits from the medieval wool trade.

Clare hears the extraordinary story of when Morris visited this church and discovered the vicar laying Victorian tiling over a medieval stone floor. He was so horrified that he founded the Society for the Preservation Of Ancient Buildings, which has since saved countless architectural gems.

Clare's next stop is Blenheim Palace, where she learns that shortly after Harold's visit here, it opened its doors for the first time to the paying public. Archivist John Forster recalls the early arrival of cyclists in Blenheim Park.

As Clare arrives in Oxford, her final destination, she considers how Britain's enthusiasm for heritage tourism was made possible by Morris, who helped preserve so many wonderful buildings.

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