Joyce is still in shock after Ulrich, the German airman on the run, is shot dead, in the penultimate episode of BBC One Daytime's award-winning period drama. Connie asks her if she's worried about the inquiry, but Joyce can't remember what happened, so it will just be a formality.

Jack informs Ellen that he's leaving the following week and Ellen shocks him with a new colourful appearance. He suggests they take a walk but a jealous Diana points out that Ellen can't as she's too busy billeting evacuees. Later, jealous Diana drops by Jack's bedroom to drip some poison into his ear, telling him what Ellen had said about him. It has the desired effect and Diana gets what she wants.

At the inquiry, Joyce is surprised by the feelings that come back to her, and is left needing to know the truth. Later, when she sees Tucker give Billy a handgun for target practice, she recalls that Tucker was there when the shooting happened – which he denies. When a wallet is found and Joyce sees pictures of Ulrich, the truth comes flooding back to her.

At the billeting, Tulley hauls out 10-year-old Joseph, who is big enough to help with the digging. Connie is appalled and decides to keep an eye on the boy. She worries that he's not being fed properly and is being hit by Tulley. Connie decides to intervene, but it's not what she thinks.

Jack makes Bea a new offer – she can have everything she wants. Later, Bea tells Billy about rejecting Jack's offer, but Billy says she could see the world. At target practice, he tells Tucker that Bea has a choice other than waiting for him to die in the war.

Meanwhile, Finch starts selling carrot whisky to raise money for Martin's operation, but is caught by Mrs Gulliver. He is saved by Tucker who says the money is for the church roof. Meanwhile Esther, having been refused a loan by Lady Hoxley, goes to see Vernon.

Joyce is played by Becci Gemmell, Connie by Seline Hizli, Jack Gillespie by Clive Wood, Lady Ellen Hoxley by Sophie Ward, Diana Granville by Raquel Cassidy, Tucker by Danny Webb, Billy by Liam Boyle, Bea by Jo Woodcock, Finch by Mark Benton, Vernon by David Schofield, Esther by Susan Cookson, Martin by Mykola Allen and Mrs Gulliver by Carolyn Pickles.

Land Girls is simulcast in HD on BBC One HD on Freesat channel 108, Freeview channel 50, Sky channel 143 and Virgin Media channel 108.

Human Planet – Deserts Life In The Furnace Ep 2/8

High Definition programme
Thursday 20 January
8.00-9.00pm BBC ONE and BBC ONE HD

In the world's hottest, driest environments, humans, like all other animals, face the greatest challenge of all – the quest for water. Humans can survive for weeks without food, but only days without water, as the second episode of Human Planet reveals.

In Africa's Sahara Desert, 16-year-old Mamadou struggles through a sandstorm with his family's herd of cattle. Most of the water-holes have dried up, forcing him to travel 100 miles to a remote lake. When he eventually arrives, he faces a new challenge from a herd of thirsty elephants.

At Lake Antogo, in drought-ridden Mali, the receding water provides an abundant feast. Two thousand men rush into the water to catch the remaining fish. After a frenzied 15 minutes, the fishing festival is all over.

In a vast ocean of sand, a caravan of Tubu women and children on camels steer their way toward a single known well. Without a map or compass, they must read the dunes and the stars for clues. With only enough water for four days and a three-day journey to the well, going off-course here will be fatal.

For the Wodaabe people the arrival of desert rains means flowering and food – and a chance for new love. They come together to dance and party in search of a new partner. But, in Niger, it's the men who dress up and the women who choose.

The Behind The Lens segment of the programme features the trials and tribulations – and surprising humour – of filming the Tubu women crossing the desert from a cinebule – a hot air balloon with a motor.

Music Planet, a companion series presented by Andy Kershaw and Lucy Duran featuring some of the music from Human Planet's locations, can be heard on BBC Radio 3.

Human Planet is simulcast in HD on BBC One HD on Freesat channel 108, Freeview channel 50, Sky channel 143 and Virgin Media channel 108.

Michel Roux's Service Ep 4/8

Thursday 20 January
8.00-9.00pm BBC TWO

Michel Roux's trainees are on a fast track from the high street to haute cuisine. In just eight weeks of training he wants them to be good enough to run service at his own two Michelin-starred fine dining restaurant.

The trainees are now nearly halfway through their training and Michel takes them out of the restaurant and into the world of five-star hotel service. Over a busy bank holiday weekend, the trainees' challenge is to serve the high-paying guests at an exclusive country house hotel in the heart of Dartmoor, where the motto is "the guests can have what they want, whenever they want it".

Some of the trainees, including Ashley and Brooke, are eager to show Michel how much they want one of the two scholarships he will be ultimately awarding. They throw themselves into meeting and greeting the high-paying guests, the 24-hour room service and the challenges of formal dining.

But for other trainees the demanding guests and the opulent surroundings make them question whether a career in high-end service can ever be for them. Single parent Nikitta feels out of place and ill at ease. Privately educated James bristles when asked to serve a family in the intimate setting of their own guest chalet, saying: "I feel like their servant."

Michel wants his trainees to pull together and take over a very special evening service; the hotel guests all wish to dine al fresco. Out on the terrace every mistake will be amplified and there is nowhere for the trainees to hide.

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