BBC THREE Friday 14 October 2011

EastEnders – E20

Friday 14 October
8.30-9.00pm BBC THREE

A Walford Gazette reporter and photographer arrive to report on young people – Donnie, Faith and Ava – helping the community, in this week's omnibus of EastEnders – E20.

Zainab and Richard act smug in front of the reporter, thinking they will get a positive story, until Donnie comes round the corner rolling Faith around in a Zorb...

Faith flirts with Donnie again but is rejected and she storms off in search of love, calling Fatboy to the Argee Bhajee where she tries to seduce him. Later, she searches for Olivia Bryan on the internet and discovers the truth about Ava's past...

Richard and Ava have dinner alone. Afterwards, Richard sees Ava back to her room and, after a goodnight kiss on the bed, Richard begins to take things further, even after Ava asks him to stop...

The next morning an upset Ava wipes last night's make-up off her face. Richard is cold with her and Donnie comments that she is obviously not Richard's favourite any more.

The three are made to clean the café and tensions between Ava and Faith remain fraught. Ava snaps and accidently injures Faith with a scraper. Richard comes by and instructs Ava to apologise. Donnie overhears the conversation and guesses something is up but Richard buys his silence by offering Donnie a letter of recommendation from Social Services.

Faith decides to get her own back on Ava by calling the Walford Gazette and tells them all about Olivia Bryan. Ava apologises to Faith and bursts into tears. Ava tells Faith what happened with Richard and Donnie overhears the whole conversation and then storms off to find Richard.

He punches Richard – disgusted by what he has done – and Faith calls the police.

When journalists arrive at 3 Albert Square for the scoop on Olivia Bryan, Faith realises her mistake and tries to fob them off but they won't go away. She eventually resorts to hosing them down with water but ends up soaking the new care worker, Theresa.

When they arrive home from the police station, Ava decides to confide in Donnie and tells him about her past.

BBC FOUR Friday 14 October 2011

Terry Gilliam's Faust

Friday 14 October
7.30-9.40pm BBC FOUR

BBC Four broadcasts English National Opera's highly acclaimed new production of Berlioz's The Damnation Of Faust, directed by film-maker and former Python Terry Gilliam.

Introduced for BBC Four by Gilliam himself, this spectacular show takes as its theme the art and politics of Germany from the 19th to the mid 20th century. Faust begins as a romantic seeker after truth, but his pact with Mephistopheles propels him on a rollercoaster ride through history. He experiences the carnage of the First World War, the turmoil of the Weimar Republic and becomes embroiled in the rise of Hitler. His beloved Marguerite turns out to be a Jewess disguised as an Aryan. This love affair leads Faust to damnation and Marguerite to the gas chamber.

It features a stellar cast with Christine Rice as Marguerite, Peter Hoare as Faust and Christopher Purvis as Mephistopheles.

The ENO Orchestra and Chorus are conducted by ENO Music Director Edward Gardner.
