New Tricks – End Of The Line Ep 2/10

Monday 11 July
9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE

When Peter Offord is arrested in connection with a warehouse robbery, DNA tests prove his innocence but link him directly to an unnamed vagrant who was strangled on a tube train 15 years earlier, prompting UCOS to reopen the case.

Having never known the identity of his father, Offord is left confused and angry when Pullman confronts him with the revelation. His mother, Iris, died in 1995, the year before the vagrant was killed, and while she had never named the young man she fell pregnant by at 18, she had never given up hope of being reunited with him. Offord reluctantly admits that he hired Roger McHugh, a dodgy private investigator known to UCOS, to find his father, but to no avail.

While Pullman, Standing and Halford pursue Iris's sister and the man they believe to be the victim's brother, Charles Allenforth, Lane questions the homeless community, with disastrous consequences.

Peter Offord is played by Richard Graham, Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman by Amanda Redman, Roger McHugh by Keith Allen, Gerry Standing by Dennis Waterman, Jack Halford by James Bolam, Charles Allenforth by Peter Davison and Brian Lane by Alun Armstrong.

BBC FOUR Monday 11 July 2011

British Masters

High Definition programme
Monday 11 July
9.00-10.00pm BBC FOUR and BBC HD
Art historian James Fox uncovers the British Masters
Art historian James Fox uncovers the British Masters

In a major re-calibration of 20th-century British paintings, art historian James Fox argues that British painting from 1910 to 1975 was an extraordinary flowering of genius. He predicts that art historians of the future will rank the period alongside the Golden Ages of Renaissance Italy and Impressionist France.

Drawing upon the work of Paul Nash, Graham Sutherland, Francis Bacon, Stanley Spencer and David Hockney, among others, Fox explores why, during the 20th century, British painters were often dismissed for being old-fashioned. He reveals how these artists carefully reconciled tradition and modernity, providing a unique creative tension that now makes the period seem so exciting.

Over the course of the series, Fox presents his theory that this period of artistic excellence was closely linked to a dramatic shift in Britain's fortunes. He suggests that the demise of the British Empire, as much as the two world wars, defines Britain's unique take on modern art: a determination to rediscover and cling on to "Britishness" while the country's territorial assets and global influence fell away.

The first episode, We Are Making A New World, goes back to the years immediately before and during the First World War, when a radical generation of painters, determined to eject Victorian sentimentality and nostalgia from their art, pioneered a new style of painting that would capture and make sense of the modern experience.

Walter Sickert shocked the public by making the low lives of Camden Town and a brutal murder the subject of his gaze. Wyndham Lewis and David Bomberg broke with centuries of realist tradition, reducing humanity to cold geometric forms. But as the country descended into war, three painters – Christopher Nevinson, Paul Nash and Stanley Spencer – reconciled what was best of the avant-garde with Britain's rich painterly tradition to create powerful images of war that would speak to us all.

British Masters is simulcast on the award-winning BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel available through Freesat 109, Freeview 54, Sky 169 and Virgin 187.

CBEEBIES Monday 11 July 2011

Baby Jake Eps 6-10/26

Monday 11 to Friday 15 July
10.15-10.30am CBEEBIES

Baby Jake and Nibbles the Rabbit go on a countryside adventure and play chase with dandelions in Monday's episode of the new CBeebies series, which follows a real baby whose magical imagination is brought to life through a mixture of live action and 2D photographic animation.

On Tuesday, Baby Jake watches a snowflake roll round and round as it falls out of the sky. The snowflake is cartwheeling and he copies the motion down a slope, cartwheeling himself into a big snowball. On Wednesday, Jake goes on a space adventure in the Hamsternaut's spaceship. He spins in Captain Spacey's chair and helps power the spaceship by running around the big hamster wheel. A countryside adventure on Thursday sees Jake enjoying a bumpy ride on Toot Toot the Tractor before he bumpety bumps on his bottom across the farmland. On Friday, Jake and Pengy Quin go on a snowy adventure where they practice "flappy clapping" – the art of catching snowballs by flapping and clapping their hands so the snowball disintegrates into a big white puff.

Rastamouse and the Easy Crew return to make more "bad tings good"

Rastamous the cool, crime-fighting, mystery-solving mouse voiced by actor and BBC Radio 1 star Reggie Yates, features in 10 brand-new episodes for CBeebies.

In Monday's episode, Da Easy Crew must track down Wensley Dale before Spike Cheez can stage the première of his latest movie but, instead, they find themselves tracking a mouse who is an expert skateboarder, windsurfer and jet ski rider.

There are strange holes in Wensley Dale's lawn, odd dents in Fats's car and a smashed window at the orphanage in Tuesday's episode as the Easy Crew uncover a strange nutty trail and a mouse who's in love with a game. On Wednesday, the mice are collecting cool new trading cards but there's a mystery mouse trying to swipe the rarest card of them all. Thankfully, Rastamouse has a super-swapping idea to make a "bad ting good"!

It seems that someone's trying to steal the entire island's power in Thursday's episode but why? An intrigued Rastamouse and the Easy Crew are soon tracking down a DJ mouse with an urge to make noise. On Friday, the Easy Crew must get out there and stop a messy mouse dumping rubbish all over the island.
