Network TV Week 17

Monday 21 April 2008

BBC ONE Monday 21 April 2008
Missing Live Ep 1/20
Monday 21 to Friday 25 April
9.15-10.00am BBC ONE

Each year, more than 200,000 people are reported missing in the UK.


For four weeks, Missing Live will follow the work of the police and the charity, Missing People, as they attempt to discover the whereabouts of just some of those who have disappeared.


Missing Live is presented by Louise Minchin (BBC Breakfast) and Rav Wilding (former Metropolitan Police Detective and Crimewatch presenter).


Using filmed reconstructions of individual cases alongside live studio interviews with friends and family, Missing Live reveals the true-life drama of missing persons investigations as they unfold. The series also helps to re-unite people who have been missing – sometimes for years – with their loved ones.


Broadcast live every weekday for a month, each programme offers the opportunity to report on the latest missing person investigations, as well as providing information and regular updates on long-standing cases that remain unsolved. Viewers can also contact the programme, the Missing People charity and the police by phone and email to help solve cases.


Throughout the series, the programmes explore and discuss the reasons why people go missing and look at the ground-breaking technology and techniques used to help find those who have disappeared – from age-progression techniques to behavioural-recognition cameras.


Cases featured this week include that of two-year-old Katrice Lee, who went missing in 1981 in Germany where her father was stationed with the Armed Forces. She disappeared during a shopping trip with her family and has not been seen since.


Luke Durbin, aged 19, went missing in May 2006 after a night out with a friend in Ipswich. The last sighting of him was on CCTV later that night and, since then, there have been no confirmed sightings.


Alex Morris went missing at Christmas in 2003 and his family did not hear from him for four years. But eventually, with the help of Missing People, he was found and re-united with his family last year.


Missing Live is based on the previous BBC Daytime series, Missing.

feeling left out in Doctors

When a disabled woman tries to set up house on her own, she discovers some unsavoury things about her cousin who has been caring for her, as the Midlands-based medical drama continues. He pays someone to attack her so that she will realise she couldn't live without him because he loves her.


There's a delay with the STI test results that Ronnie asked George to take after she slept with Nick, and George isn't happy, particularly since she went private. She has a rant about it, obviously talking about it "on behalf of a patient", but Daniel knows she's talking about herself and tries to calm her.


Julia starts working on her pitch and business plan for the Campus Surgery and assigns jobs to everyone except Daniel, who feels very left out.


Finally, George gets a call and is given her results, but her face gives nothing away.


Ronnie is played by Sean Gleeson, George by Stirling Gallacher, Daniel by Matthew Chambers and Julia by Diane Keen.

Minty is played by Cliff Parisi, Heather by Cheryl Fergison, Shirley by Linda Henry, Christian by John Partridge, Steven by Aaron Sidwell, Jack by Scott Maslen and Tanya by Jo Joyner.



Waking The Dead – Sins
Monday 21 April
9.00-10.00pm BBC ONE

Boyd and his Cold Case team investigate the mystery surrounding human remains found in an urban canal with links to the murder of a prison governor, 15 years earlier, as the award-winning forensic drama series continues. Meanwhile, Boyd searches for his son, Luke, who discharged himself from the homeless unit, in the second of six two-part stories.


Boyd tracks Luke's mobile phone to a disused building, but there is no sign of him.


Suspicion for the murder of the prison governor originally fell on two ex-prisoners, Kelleher and Ryan, who had been heard to threaten Governor Reading. Boyd and Grace talk to prison psychologist Damian Hooper about Kelleher, but Hooper is furious when he discovers that Stella is at his house with his wife, Cathy, and that Cathy, Reading's daughter, has been told about the discovery of her father's remains. He rushes home to be with her.


Spence tracks down Ryan but he is deranged, and Spence can get no sense from him. Spence also visits the halfway house where Kelleher and Ryan had been living at the time of Reading's murder and realises that their alibi for the evening does not stand up.


Then Kelleher takes Hooper hostage – but could the key to unravelling the case be much closer to home?


Trevor Eve is Boyd; Sue Johnston is Grace; Tara FitzGerald is Eve; Wil Johnson is Spence; and Félicité du Jeu is Stella.


Sins, which concludes tomorrow, features guest stars Michael Maloney as Dr Damian Hooper; Ruth Gemmell as Cathy; David Schofield as Michael Kelleher; Tony Maudsley as Terry Ryan; and Alexandra Moem as Cathy Reading.

How To Build A Cathedral

The great cathedrals were the wonders of the medieval world and, tonight, they're the focus of How To Build A Cathedral, continuing BBC Four's Medieval Season.


Many were the tallest structures on Earth, the highest buildings created since the pyramids and until the Eiffel Tower; yet they were built without any of the technological aids of the modern world – with little more than set-square and dividers, ropes and pulleys, hammers and chisels.


The vision was to create a sense of Heaven on Earth and the medieval cathedral aspired to be nothing less than "the new Jerusalem". Spectacular effects were achieved as this ambition was realised, leading to a revolution in design and a golden age for cathedral architecture in England.


Who were the people who built them? What drove them? And just how were they able to build with such stupendous skill, vision and ambition?


Architectural historian Jon Cannon, author of the recent acclaimed Cathedral, goes in search of the clues that shed light on how our medieval forebears were able to realise such bold ambition. From the fan vaulting at Gloucester to the stained glass at York, from the solid mass of Norwich to the soaring elegance of the Octagon at Ely, Jon climbs up above the stone vaulted ceilings, along the parapets, through the roof voids and down into the crypts of the greatest cathedrals to find out how – and why – it was done.
