High Definition programme
Tuesday 24 August
9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE and BBC HD

Clem's (James Nesbitt) hopes come true
Clem's (James Nesbitt) hopes come true

Clem's wildest hope has come true and he is reunited with his wife Catherine, as the blockbuster thriller set thousands of feet below the Arctic ice, starring James Nesbitt, Minnie Driver and Goran Visnjic, continues.

The Orpheus is fixed and ready to return to the surface, but first Zubov, the Russian captain, insists that everyone helps bury the dead Russians. Once this task is complete they can head home.

But Zubov changes his tune after the burial and instructs his men to shoot all the Orpheus crew. In a desperate scramble, the Orpheus team manage to escape back onto their vessel, but Svetlana doesn't make it in time and Vincent, highly radiated, is also left on the Volos.

Arkady decides to leave the Volos, turning against his countrymen, and manages to get on board the Orpheus. Clem just wants to get his wife home to Scarlet, but Catherine changes the whole mission when she reveals her extraordinary discovery, the lava bugs – an organism that creates renewable energy. The dedicated scientist insists that rather than going back to the surface, they must go deeper still – deep down to the Archeon trench where the Russians have been digging for oil.

James Nesbitt (Occupation, Murphy's Law) stars as Clem Donnelly alongside Minnie Driver (Circle Of Friends, Good Will Hunting) as Frances Kelly and Goran Visnjic (ER, Welcome To Sarajevo) as Samson Ungliss. Catherine is played by Orla Brady, Zubov by Goran Kostic, Svetlana by Vera Filatova, Vincent by Sacha Dhawan, Arkady by Tom Wlaschiha and Scarlet by Molly Jones.

The Deep 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 Tuesday 24 August 2010

Baby Beauty Kings – Matthew Ep 5/6

Tuesday 24 August
8.30-9.00pm BBC THREE
Eight-year-old Matthew is determined to break into the competitive world of child modelling
Eight-year-old Matthew is determined to break into the competitive world of child modelling

Baby Beauty Queens is renamed Baby Beauty Kings this week to follow the story of Matthew, an eight-year-old boy who is determined to break into the competitive world of child modelling.

The youngest of four boys, eight-year-old Matthew isn't interested in football or computer games. More than anything else in the world, he wants to be a model. Matthew's parents feel that, since they support his brothers' interests in music and football, they must do the same for Matthew's less conventional passions and sign him up with a child model agency.

"I've got my reservations about it, you know," says Matthew's mum. "I don't want him going to a model casting and not getting the job and then thinking 'oh, is it because I don't look nice enough?' The modelling industry's a judgment on how you look. It's just something that he really wants to do, and it's all he talks about."

This film follows Matthew's journey from a quiet rural village to the competitive world of child modelling – a world very different from the catwalks of Matthew's imagination.

Part of BBC Three's Adult Season, Landmark Films' Baby Beauty Queens series 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 image-obsessed Britain.

BBC FOUR Tuesday 24 August 2010

Britain By Bike – The Scottish Highlands Ep 6/6

Tuesday 24 August
8.30-9.00pm BBC FOUR

With its backdrop of the magnificent mountains known as the Five Sisters of Kintail, the shores of Loch Duich is the Scottish Highlands at its best and the starting point for Clare Balding's final journey in the series.

Following in the tracks of cycling author Harold Briercliffe, Clare heads steeply over the Mam Ratagan pass, through thick plantations of Sitka spruce trees which obscure the view. These trees are foreign invaders from North America, controversially introduced by the Forestry Commission at the expense of Scotland's native Caledonian pine forest.

She then heads westward, following the same route taken by famous literary visitors Dr Johnson and James Boswell, along a road built by another outsider, English army commander Colonel Wade. His roads were constructed to aid government troops who occupied this region after the 18th-century Jacobite rebellions.

The mysterious brochs – elaborate dry stone dwellings – catch Clare's eye before she travels south towards Sandaid.

Close to this road, Clare discovers the site of the house made famous by Ring Of Bright Water, naturalist Gavin Maxwell's book about life with an otter. Clare meets TV naturalist Terry Nutkins who, as a teenager, abandoned city life to come and live in this remote place.

Like many incomers Terry has never left – and still lives in nearby Glenelg. At the end of her journey, Clare considers the fate of the many "invaders" who have come here, either to transform the landscape or be transformed by it.

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