Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's iconic series is back to inspire viewers with his grow-your-own, back-to-nature food philosophy. In this post-pandemic era, with more and more of us embracing wild places, local produce, and seeking to move towards a more natural, plant-led diet, Hugh returns to the very ethos he's championed since the first River Cottage shows over two decades ago. As we emerge from two years of lockdowns, re-evaluating our lifestyles and relationship to nature and wellbeing, Hugh reopens the doors of River Cottage HQ, in the stunning countryside of east Devon. Spring becomes summer, as Hugh and his talented team of foraging and fermenting chefs and gardeners celebrate the bounties of the seasonal harvest. Plants are much to the fore, but as well as tending the garden, River Cottage is looking after hens, piglets and baby goats. And with the help of his local butcher, Hugh is kick-starting a campaign to protect our woodlands by getting more venison on our plates. Throughout the series, Hugh shows how to grow, prepare and cook fresh and exciting food, using anything from the fruit and veg in the garden, wild ingredients in the hedgerows and woods, sea vegetables on the shore, and fish and shellfish out at sea. River Cottage regulars such as forager John Wright and fire-cook Gill Meller, are on hand with advice to help and inspire, and Hugh meets a range of experts introducing us to exciting ideas such as natural bee keeping, fermenting original drinks, and even making sourdough crumpets. River Cottage is at the cutting edge of a more climate-friendly way of eating and highlights how to source more sustainable ingredients. The series also emphasises the need to clean up our rivers to promote biodiversity and enjoy the health benefits of wild swimming.

This is the inside story of the team of officers tasked with catching the killer of British backpacker Grace Millane and how her attacker Jesse Kempson was brought to justice. In December 2018 Grace was murdered in New Zealand by Kempson - who she met on Tinder. This series explores how her death resonated globally and raised questions about the use of victim-blaming in cases of violence against women. Featuring access to the lead detectives, CCTV material that captured the date itself, the police interviews with Kempson and court footage during the murder trial. This special paints a portrait of a vibrant young woman at the start of her life, with everything to look forward to. One night out in Auckland New Zealand, a Tinder date ends with her disappearance.

The police intensify their investigation and continue to gather evidence against Kempson. Interviews with his step-brother and a former girlfriend build a detailed picture of Kempson and his misogynist brutality.

Little House Big Plans reveals that no matter how small your home or tight your budget, you can create your own grand design.
In this episode, novice DIY-er’s Chrissy and Nick from Poole jumped into the property market when they bought a pokey three bed 1930s outdated semi. They want to create more space by reconfiguring the area to create an open plan kitchen/diner. But with their budget spent they are attempting to finance their renovations from pay cheque to pay cheque. In London, Damion visits Graham and Stephen who had big plans to bring the outside in.

Trucking Heavy is an observational documentary series following the work of Allelys, who are one of the leading multimodal logistics and specialist projects providers in the country. In this series, we follow their team and the equipment they use as massive objects are moved from A to B against the odds, thanks to ingenious engineering and impressive planning. In Lincolnshire, 36-year-old heavy haulage veteran Steve Moss’s two-day mission is to deliver a 60-tonne reel of electrical cable for an ambitious green energy scheme.
Carefully positioning his 60-tonne bespoke trailer, which is longer than a diplodocus dinosaur and about as agile, the hefty load has to confirm its conductivity by having 10,000 volts of electricity sent through it.
Supported front and rear by his team and under police escort, Steve takes on all manner of man-made obstacles. A humpback bridge, a railway crossing and overhead phone cables could all bring this oversized convoy to a halt. After overcoming these challenges, trouble arrives in the form of a swan!
Cue former chicken farmer and support driver Roger Morris. If anyone can wrangle a piece of posh poultry safely off the road it should be him. With no time for swanning around, Roger swiftly clears the bird from the road and the reel can finally reach its destination.
Then after two false starts solved with grease and some gentle persuasion, Roger remotely controls the unspooling of the cable from the mechanised trailer in perfect unison with the construction site’s winch.
Meanwhile in Warwickshire, the ‘Golden Boys’, a three-tonne statue of the fathers of the steam age, needs taking to its new home in the second city’s Centenary Square. But James Watt and his colleagues can’t go anywhere without being precisely loaded, because for these boys to remain golden, not a single fleck of gold leaf can be damaged in transit.
Former Birmingham bus driver Dave Hemmings navigates low-hanging trees to arrive with the statue in one piece. And despite having a centre of gravity to challenge any crane op, precision slinging and careful lifting eventually has the Golden Boys sitting firmly on their plinth. Job done.
This Is MY House is the game show where four people all claim to own the same house but only one of them is telling the truth, the other three are liars. The player who manages to sway a celebrity panel and get picked as the real homeowner at the end of the show wins a cash prize. The celebrity panel trying to find the real homeowner this week are Judi Love, Richard Madeley, Harry Hill and MIST.
This episode takes place in a nine bedroom Georgian mansion house which is home to the real Rohini and three visiting imposters who all maintain they own the property. The real Rohini has an enviable property complete with an ice room, a pirate room, a yoga studio and an indoor beach.
The real Rohini runs her property as a yoga and alternative therapy retreat, but there is a bit of friction between the Rohinis as one reveals she’s really just in it for the money. Up in the pirate room, one of the Rohinis maintains that a broken window was caused by a small flying potato, while another says that a fireplace in the house cost £24,000. All of the Rohinis demonstrate their alternative therapies, which range from spinning on the spot to clucking like a chicken.
As the celebrity panel are invited to watch a series of videos in the studio, they must glean as many clues as possible and try not to fall for the imposters’ porkies.
