WEEK 10

Mary Berry's Fantastic Feasts

Dame Mary Berry knows a thing or two about cooking up a Fantastic Feast, so she’s sharing her cooking skills with 3 novice cooks – fireman Mark, youth worker Callum and boxing instructor Thaer who want to throw a spectacular afternoon tea to say thank you to Soraya, who runs a local youth charity. With the help of Dame Mary, can they pull it off and give Soraya a thank you surprise she’ll never forget?

 

Mary has also enlisted the help of Roman Kemp and Celebs Go Dating’s Tom Read Wilson. While Mary will focus on getting the novice cooks up to speed in the kitchen, Roman and Tom oversee the extras that will make this party extra special. They’ll also be on-hand to offer moral support when temperatures rise in the kitchen.

 

Thaer, Mark and Callum from Cardiff have had their fair share of cooking disasters.  Mark has never followed a recipe in his life, Callum’s Nan does most of the cooking and Thaer once threw a pot away because it was so burnt.

 

Mary has her work cut out turning the three novices into capable cooks able to serve up a fantastic feast. But it’s a challenge she is willing to take on as Soraya has changed the lives of so many young people in her community.

 

The novice cooks get the unique opportunity of visiting Mary Berry at home for some very special cooking lessons, learning recipes hand-chosen by Mary for a spectacular afternoon tea… Golden Red Pepper, Cheese and Chive Tartlets, Mini Scones with Strawberry Jam and Clotted Cream and a 4 tier Clementine Cake.

 

They’re not the only ones getting to work on preparing for the feast, as Tom and Roman take on their missions set by Mary. Tom heads to the Women’s Institute to make Jam fit for those scones while Roman tries his first ever cup of tea as he tries to find a brew worthy of the party.

 

After their one-to-one lessons with Mary, the novice cooks must master their dishes on their own at home, but can they remember the recipes or even how to work the oven when they’re home alone?

 

Then it’s time to step things up as they head to Langley Hall near Cardiff to cook their fantastic feast for 15, and give Soraya the surprise of a lifetime.

 

With Tom and Roman in charge of the finishing touches, Mary’s on hand for some last-minute tips.  With a magnificent venue and incredible recipes, can they pull it off, surprise Soraya and deliver a magical ‘thank you’ feast?

Soham: The Murder of Holly & Jessica

The brutal murders of Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman in August 2002 shocked the entire country.  The girls left Holly’s home in the Cambridgeshire town of Soham one Sunday afternoon and seemingly disappeared without trace.  A desperate search and 14 day police hunt gripped the nation, willing Holly and Jessica to return home but tragically it ended with the discovery of their bodies in a ditch close to the town.

 

But the true horror of the crime was only revealed when it was uncovered that the man responsible was a Soham local, college caretaker Ian Huntley. A man who had for the last year been part of the community, was known to many, and had been at the heart of the media coverage of the story. Making his actions all the more chilling.

Moors Murders

MOORS MURDERS tells the story of Britain's most infamous child murders – by 1960s serial killers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley. This 3-part series is built around never-before-seen prison letters from Brady and Hindley to the same source, written in the 5 decades after their capture. Expert analysis of these letters provides new insight into their backgrounds, thinking and motivation. The series asks why both killers – especially Hindley - remain our most notorious icons of evil.

 

This third film recounts The Trial of the Century - when Brady and Hindley were sensationally brought to face justice in 1966. Hindley's brother-in-law David Smith and journalist Clive Entwistle were there. They describe the trial, which attracted global attention. They recall the tension in court when the tape of a little girl being tortured was played. Hindley’s voice was on that tape, condemning her and sealing her fate.  

 

The film documents the high-profile prison after-life of Myra Hindley, courting constant controversy and publicity and including lesbian love affairs and a farcical attempted prison escape. It follows the protracted, unsuccessful campaign to secure her parole. It includes a recording of Myra Hindley singing. Hindley and Brady cut contact after the first 7 years. They became Britain’s longest serving male and female prisoners. After Hindley’s death, Brady’s copious letters never refer to her again. 

 

The film concludes by asking why the Moors Murders still haunt the British imagination, and why Ian Brady, and especially Myra Hindley, remain Icons of Evil decades after their crimes.

Police: Night Shift 999

Police: After Dark follows the night shift of Gloucestershire Constabulary, revealing the relentless and uphill fight against night time crime. As darkness falls across the county, a legion of officers patrol the streets, facing incidents with more drink, more drugs and more violence than during daylight hours.

 

With exclusive access across the Constabulary, this series highlights the courageous work of police through the night. Right across local police and Dog units, firearms officers, the custody team and the control room, we’ll follow the relentless fight to protect the public and bring criminals to justice while the rest of us sleep.  

 

In this episode we see frontline officers respond to challenging incidents, throw themselves into the unknown and tackle dangerous suspects to keep the people of Gloucestershire safe in the small hours.

 

We start with reports of a break in at a garage. As the officer blue lights to the scene he prepares for a situation where the suspect might still be there. When he does spot a suspicious looking man he must make a split-second decision. Is he armed? Can he tackle him on his own?  What if he’s got accomplices? 

 

From one surprise to another. Officers receive a call about a fight with a knife. When they get there, they discover a trail of blood leading into a block of flats. Fearing the worst, officers force entry into the block. Inside they face one of the most frustrating aspects of the job - dealing with people who ‘don’t talk to police’. Will they get to the bottom of what happened?

 

We are plunged into every officer’s worst nightmare - being far away when a colleague hits their panic alarm. We follow a specialist dogs’ officer race across the city to help a colleague in distress. He’s greeted with a hostile crowd and turns to his dog to try and regain control. Will it work or will it aggravate an already volatile crowd?

 

Finally, officers are called to reports of a group of youths throwing bottles in the road and being a general nuisance. They are faced with a dilemma - they don’t want to criminalize young people but what do you do if they refuse to listen?

 

And officers are called to find the source of a suspicious trail of white powder on a pavement. 

Dream Kitchens and Bathrooms with Mark Millar

Mark Millar (DIY SOS) helps create a dream Victorian-style bathroom for £3k in Lincolnshire, and a big budget £40k farmhouse-feel kitchen in a Staffordshire village.
 

In Lincolnshire, crystal ball seller Abi and handyman Simon are desperate for a new bathroom for their family of 3 young kids, after recently moving into a rundown wreck of a farmhouse. With no working bathroom since moving in, the family have had to resort to washing in plastic tubs in the garden. With a budget of only £3k, Abi wants to reflect the history of the 200-year-old house by installing a traditional Victorian-style bathroom suite, including roll-top bath, high cistern toilet and an upcycled basin vanity unit. To make that dream happen on a budget, Abi has bagged some bargain buys online, but with her purchases clogging up handyman husband Simon’s workshop, they need to get on with their bathroom refurb pronto. Mark suggests removing a wall and they have much more space to play with. How will they cope with doing a self-renovation whilst juggling looking after a young family – without a bathroom? Do Abi’s bargain buys give DIYer Simon headaches? Can they form a team to transform their dated bathroom into the calming retreat with period style they’re dreaming of?

 

In Staffordshire, Project Engineer Kevin and Nurse Michele want their kitchen to be the jewel in the crown of their dream forever home – a 1950s bungalow that they have more than doubled in size with a huge extension at the rear of the property. For their new open-plan kitchen-diner, Kevin and Michele want to create a cosy and homely farmhouse-feel to entertain their visiting family in – and they have a £40k budget to do that, opting for handmade kitchen units, stone worktops and oak flooring. But with a massive 33 square metres of floor area to fill, Mark wants them to think about layout and acoustics.  Mark visits an award winning open plan kitchen living space in another bungalow, and helps Kevin and Michele fit acoustic insulation under the flooring. But will Kevin and Michele be able to transform the cavernous space into the cosy kitchen they dream of? Can they turn a cold, cavernous room into the inviting space they want?

 

Mark Millar is a master builder and carpenter with 30 years’ experience. He brings his skills and expert advice to help the families achieve their dreams.  In this episode, Mark gives viewers his golden rules for Farmhouse kitchen style and a tour of another full-on Victorian home, plus his do’s and don’ts for bathroom layout, and his expert guides to Victorian bathroom tiles and the latest beautiful kitchen sinks.

Great British Menu

North East & Yorkshire - Episode 1 (16 of 29)

 

Great British Menu continues with top talent from the North East  & Yorkshire competing. Presenter Andi Oliver welcomes them to the kitchen where the theme for this year’s competition is celebrating ‘100 years of British Broadcasting’. 

 

This week’s four chefs are a mix of exciting new talent– Sheffield based Luke French who runs his own restaurant Jöro, serving clean, pure flavours with Nordic/Japanese influences. Luke has a Michelin plate and 3 AA rosettes. 

Yorkshire-born Liz Cottam who's restaurant Home opened in 2017, receiving a Michelin plate shortly after opening.  Mark Aisthorpe, chef patron of The Bulls Head in Holymoorside on the outskirts of the Peak District. 

Finally, Kerala-born Bobby Geetha, Chef Patron of Fleur Café in Leeds. 

 

 

One of the four must leave the competition at the end of the episode and this will be decided by this week’s veteran judge, a previous GBM winner. Their identity remains a surprise to the chefs until the moment they walk into the kitchen to taste their first course – the canapes.   

 

The veteran this week will taste and rank the canapes in order of preference. These will only be bought into play in the event of a tie break. The first scored dish will be the starter.  

 

The starter dishes are creative takes on the brief. Luke pays homage to TV classic sitcom, Butterflies. Liz celebrates the Yorkshire sitcom, Last of the Summer Wine; Mark is inspired by Heartbeat and Bobby is flying the flag for Formula One racing. The question is which will the veteran score the highest?

 

One chef has to leave the competition after the fish course and the pressure is on to impress the veteran. What will they think of a dish inspired by Brideshead Revisited, Monty Python’s legendary Four Yorkshiremen sketch, Chucklevision and a celebration of television cooking travelogues. Which chef will be sent home?

 

North East & Yorkshire - Episode 2 (17 of 29)

 

The three chefs from the North East & Yorkshire are halfway through their heat and the pressure is mounting. Once again, they each serve their unique interpretations of the brief celebrating 100 years of British Broadcasting. For their main courses, one chef is taking inspiration from the first royal Christmas message on the radio, another is celebrating Strictly Come Dancing and lastly there is an ode to Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway. 

 

After the tension of the main course scoring, presenter Andi Oliver asks the chefs to prepare a pre-dessert or palate cleanser. The veteran must blind taste and rank them as they will be used in the event of a tie break to decide who goes home.  There is a celebration of Who Do You Think You Are?, All Creatures Great and Small and an ode to a magician from the North east, Dynamo. 

 

After a glimpse of their pudding skills, it’s on to dessert where we see a celebration of Darling Buds of May,  a dish inspired by period drama Downton Abbey and a tribute to the London 2012 Olympics. Which chef will get top marks and who will go home?

 

Only two will proceed to cook for the judges and compete for a chance to represent the North East and Yorkshire at the regional finals.

 

North East & Yorkshire - Episode 3 (18 of 29)

 

Today the two highest scoring chefs from the North East and Yorkshire go head-to-head and cook their six-course menus again. Will they take on board the Veteran’s advice as they serve to the new panel of esteemed judges?

 

The chefs need to impress Chef Tom Kerridge, holder of 3 Michelin stars, Chef and Restaurateur Nisha Katona, and comedian and host of a popular food podcast, Ed Gamble. In addition, they’ll have to win over a guest judge – today it’s North East cookery star and one half of the Hairy Bikers, Si King. How will he judge dishes celebrating 100 years of British Broadcasting?

 

Only one of the chefs will triumph and go through to the National Finals to represent North East and Yorkshire.
