New Tricks – Half Life Ep 9/10

Bank Holiday Monday 29 August
9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE

UCOS reinvestigate the murder of an identified male found in a West London alleyway seven years ago when the victim is named on a website highlighting unexplained disappearances.

The victim, Christopher Collins, is named by Lisa Carlisle, wife of garage owner John, who employed Collins as a mechanic six months before his death. The Carlisles assumed that Collins had just moved on. Neither seems to know anything about him beyond the fact that he could strip a gearbox.

The investigation takes an unexpected twist when every line of enquiry draws a blank, with Collins appearing to have had no past. Then the team discovers he was in the witness protection programme having testified against a major drug smuggler.

Meanwhile, Brian Lane and Gerry Standing are distracted by looming job cuts in the Force fearing that their unit could be hit. But can Pullman get any kind of reassurance from DAC Strickland over the future of UCOS?

Amanda Redman plays Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman, Alun Armstrong plays Brian Lane, James Bolam plays Jack Halford, Dennis Waterman plays Gerry Standing, Anthony Calf plays DAC Strickland, Robert Daws plays John Carlisle and Claudie Blakley plays Lisa Carlisle.

Alesha Dixon crowns the 2011 Street Dance Stars

Alesha's Street Dance Stars continues on Monday with five crews performing for a place in the semi-finals. The semi-finals take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and on Friday, the winners will be crowned.

Judges Kenrick "H20" Sandy, Lizzie Gough and Issac "Turbo" Baptiste put the contestants through their paces alongside host Alesha Dixon, as the crews compete to earn top marks for choreography, showmanship and technique.

At the end of Monday's episode, a surprise challenge awaits each of the successful dance crews who will find out which randomly selected dance style they'll have to perform in the semi-final – ballet, Bhangra or rock 'n' roll.

The semi-finals begin on Tuesday, when three crews each perform two brand-new dance routines – one street dance, and one dance incorporating new moves from the genre given to them as a challenge by the judges. The semi-finals continue through Wednesday and Thursday and special guests Perri and Jordan from Diversity join the crews backstage to wish them luck and help them with their moves before they take to the stage to perform for a place in the final.

On Friday, after weeks of hard work, three talented crews have made it to the final of Alesha's Street Dance Stars 2011.

Each will give the performance of their lives, revealing their new street dance routine in front of the expert judging panel in what promises to be an exciting, high-energy end to the series.

Marks will be awarded for technique, choreography and showmanship, and the crew that receives the most points will be crowned Alesha's Street Dance Stars 2011.

Host Alesha Dixon also introduces a very special performance by street crew kings Flawless, as the tension mounts in what promises to be a super-thrilling, jaw-dropping grand finale.

CBEEBIES Bank Holiday Monday 29 August 2011

Baby Jake Ep 26/26

Bank Holiday Monday 29 August
10.15-10.30am CBEEBIES

Baby Jake heads off on a funny snowy adventure to clown around in the final episode of the series, slipping and sliding and making bottom prints in the snow. Baby Jake bumps into Pengy Quin and they slide off on a huge ice cube, giggling as they go, eventually sliding down a hill and into an igloo.

A conga line of penguins appears from the igloo, and Baby Jake is last in line – performing his own penguin waddle and walk just like his penguin friends. The climax is a formation ice dancing Big Top routine where the penguins skate atop one another's shoulders, pyramid style – with Baby Jake wearing a big red clown's nose, right on the top!
