BBC TWO Tuesday 8 January 2008
The Boys From Baghdad High – This World
Tuesday 8 January
9.00-10.30pm BBC TWO

The Boys From Baghdad High tells the story of four Iraqi friends and class mates coming of age in arguably the most dangerous city on Earth – Baghdad. One is Kurdish, one Christian, one Shia and one from a mixed Sunni/Shia background. In a city torn apart by sectarian violence, can their friendship survive?


Uniquely, The Boys From Baghdad High was filmed by the four students themselves, during the 2006/07 academic year, offering a unique insight into ordinary Iraqi lives rarely seen.


As they enter their last year in school, the strain of daily life does not really inspire them to study. And, like adolescent boys everywhere, they prefer other distractions such as texting girlfriends, playing computer games or learning the words to rap songs.


At the same time, the boys and their families have to make important decisions – most crucially whether they want to stay in Baghdad or flee to safer areas as so many Iraqis have done. The boys must also look to the future and the world beyond school.




BBC THREE Tuesday 8 January 2008

Kill It, Cook It, Eat It - The Baby Story

Ep 2/5
Tuesday 8 January
Day and time to be confirmed BBC THREE


Presenter Julia Bradbury (Watchdog, Wainwright's Walks), leading vet Peter Jinman, master butchers John Mettrick and Andrew Sharpe and chef Kate Moore continue to bring together two moments the public have separated – the death of young animals and the consumption of its meat. Tonight, they look at the slaughter of kid goats.


Will the views of the invited diners be affected when they see the tiny kid goats between 12 and 20 weeks old go to slaughter?


Kid goats are part of a niche market for younger, more tender meat – a consumer demand which has been growing steadily in this country for a number of years.


Viewers can witness the whole slaughter process – from stunning, bleeding, eviscerating and butchering the animal. The programme also shows what to look out for when buying young meat.




BBC FOUR Tuesday 8 January 2008
Pop! What Is It Good For?

Tuesday 8 January
10.00-11.00pm BBC FOUR

Writer Paul Morley is a self-confessed pop addict, and in Pop! What Is It Good For? he journeys to the heart of this obsession.


At 50 years of age, Morley is just about as old as pop music itself. In this film, he argues that pop has played a central role in the culture of the nation over the past half century. In the post-empire era, pop music has helped give the world a sense of Britain and Britain a sense of itself.


Featuring artistes and fellow pop obsessives as diverse as poet Simon Armitage and contemporary girl group The Sugababes, and national treasures such as pop artist Peter Blake and Suggs from Madness, this film explores and celebrates the beauty and mystery of the pop single. From Adam Faith's What Do You Want? in the Fifties, to Kylie's Can't Get You Out Of My Head in the Noughties, it reveals how complex, rewarding and varied the three-minute pop song can be and how a nation fell in love with the form.


Pop! What Is It Good For? is part of a season of the same name celebrating British pop music.
