New Tricks – Left Field Ep 3/10

Friday 24 September
9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE

Samantha Bond plays  left-wing activist Anne Gorton

Notorious paedophile John Davies admits to the abduction and murder of a five-year-old boy, 25 years ago, as the drama following a team of ex-policeman brought out of retirement to investigate unsolved cases from the past continues. UCOS are so suspicious of Davies's motives that they find themselves in the unusual situation of reopening the case to prove his innocence.

John Davies has only recently been released from prison and is struggling to adapt to life outside. His confession appears to be an attempt to return to the relative safety of a prison cell.

Five-year-old Yasser Blackledge disappeared while on a demonstration with his parents, left-wing activists Anne Gorton and Fred Blackledge. At the time, a media "witch hunt" against Anne and Fred clouded the investigation and, while John Davies was known to the couple through various freedom rallies and meetings, it couldn't be proven that he had abducted their son.

Fred and Anne separated shortly after Yasser went missing and, while they both followed different paths, they are clearly still living with the guilt of what happened that day.

Is John Davies telling the truth or does someone closer to home know what really happened to Yasser?

Amanda Redman plays Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman, James Bolam plays Jack Halford, Alun Armstrong plays Brian Lane, Dennis Waterman plays Gerry Standing, Samantha Bond plays Anne Gorton, Kevin R McNally plays Fred Blackledge and Adrian Schiller plays John Davies.

The Royal Ballet Celebrates Kenneth MacMillan Ep 1/2

New series

8.00-10.00pm BBC FOUR

BBC Four presents a two-part programme celebrating the genius of choreographer Kenneth MacMillan, staged in the year in which he would have turned 80.

Founder member of Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet and a protégé of choreographer, dancer and director Ninette de Valois, MacMillan created more than 60 ballets – including five full-length works.

The three contrasting works featured in these programmes showcase the beauty and dramatic power of his choreography. Concerto is an early work danced to the music of Shostakovich. In Elite Syncopations, brightly coloured dancers burst into life to the music of ragtime.

The second programme looks at The Judas Tree, the Laurence Olivier Award-winning ballet which was MacMillan's last work before his untimely death from a heart attack at the age of 62. Set on a building site in Canary Wharf, it is a highly charged ballet of brutal betrayal and tense sexual violence.

The programmes, narrated by Katie Derham, also feature interviews with the lead dancers in rehearsal, including Carlos Acosta, Sarah Lamb and Leanne Benjamin, as well as director of The Royal Ballet Monica Mason and MacMillan's widow, Deborah.
