Still in hospital care, Jac is curious as to what happened in South Africa. Joseph tells her that he and Faye got engaged, but that no one knows. Jac continues to dig for information but is suddenly rushed into theatre with pneumothorax, a dangerous lung condition.


Later, Elliot is shocked to discover from Michael that Lady Byrne has resigned from the charity and gone on a world cruise. Clearly upset by the news, he also resigns from the foundation, leaving Connie and Michael to take over.

Alan Yentob meets the renowned German film director, screenwriter, actor and opera director Werner Herzog in this week's Imagine...


Legendary for his refusal to compromise in his search for the "real truth", Herzog has a reputation for pushing cast, crew and studios to the absolute limit. Rumoured stories from his best-known film, Fitzcarraldo, are of a catastrophe-riddled shoot in the Peruvian jungle, which took three years, saw two plane crashes, a border war and attacks from a hostile tribe.


Herzog is as far from the mainstream as it is possible to be, so it is a surprise when Alan finds him living in the Hollywood Hills. Spending time with Werner at some of his favourite Los Angeles locations, Alan attempts to uncover whether Herzog is the maverick risk-taker he appears to be. He also questions what the future holds for Herzog and asks whether he will succeed in bucking the Hollywood system or be forced to compromise his unique vision.


With footage from Herzog's extensive back catalogue of work, including Rescue Dawn, Grizzly Man, Dwarfs Started Small and Fitzcarraldo, the documentary is a revealing insight into one of modern cinema's most surprising and complex film-makers.

CBEEBIES Tuesday 1 July 2008
3rd & Bird – Fly Muffin Ep 1/26
Tuesday 1 July
5.00-5.10pm CBEEBIES
(Schedule addition Friday 13 June)

Viewers can swoop into the colourful, feathery world of five-year-old Samuel Lovebird when 3rd & Bird – a vibrant, new animated series which teaches young children all about the community – flies onto CBeebies screens.


Samuel is an adorable, inquisitive little bird who lives, learns and plays in the branches of a beautiful old tree. Along with cute little sister Muffin, adventurous best pal Rudy and a whole host of flying friends, viewers follow the young bird's treetop tribulations as he explores his community and the world around him.


From watching shooting stars on Branch Hill to pecking at picnics in Fruitbranch Park, Samuel's feathery wonderland is rarely dull. As Samuel, Muffin and Rudy embark on a series of adventures – attending parades, building projects or helping elderly birds – they learn all about how to overcome problems and become part of a community.


Created by 10-times Emmy Award-winning Sesame Street writer Josh Selig (producer of the internationally acclaimed The Wonder Pets! and Go Baby!), the beautifully crafted series is packed to the treetops with songs, dancing, music and whistling – with bird sounds and music specially created by world champion music whistler Michael Barimo. And, to ensure the series is in tune with its young audience, each script has been researched extensively with a unique method of formative research known as "show and tell testing" – developed and overseen exclusively for 3rd & Bird by PhD Dr Laura G Brown.


In the first episode, Muffin really wants to learn to fly. Samuel tries to teach her the right way to flap, Rudy suggests she fly on a kite and Missy suggests she try swinging off a trapeze to fly, but nothing works. After getting some encouragement from brainy teacher Mr Beakman, Samuel invents a kite-apeze – part kite, part trapeze and perfect to help a young bird spread her wings!
