The Chefs' Brigade

SAVOIE
Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton is taking a team of raw cooking talent and, in six weeks, tries to turn them into a Chefs’ Brigade to compete with Europe’s finest restaurants.  

Following a difficult service in San Sebastian, Jason is determined to push his Brigade further and introduce them to the country that bought the world of Michelin to the world of cooking, France. This week they travel to the Alpine region of the Savoie, famed for its fresh produce and, in recent years, for a new generation of talented chefs transforming classic French cuisine into modern, delicate fine dining. 

The rival chef this week is Alain Perillat–Mercerot, owner and head chef of Michelin-starred restaurant Atmosphères, which has views out to the mountains and the Lac du Bourget, from which he sources his produce. Alain’s restaurant has held its Michelin star for nine consecutive years, and he has put together a challenging seven-course menu to test the Brigade’s technical skills.  

Last week Jason introduced new members Lee and Wil into the Brigade. Now, following a falling out during the tense final service, one member of the Brigade decides to end their journey, and the team are now down to just nine members. Battling on, Jason teaches the Brigade the art of French classics such as Quenelle de Brochet, using the very pike the chefs fish from the lake, in order to show the Brigade just how far they need to go to beat the French at their own game.  

In final service all eyes are on Wil and Jess as they are given two of the most complicated dishes of the menu in what becomes one of their most important services of the Brigade’s journey yet.

**NEW** Snatched and Sold For Sex

Snatched and Sold for Sex explores the hidden world of sex trafficking - in the UK there are an estimated 2000 victims currently held captive. This film reveals the shocking stories of four women who were sexually exploited by men. Each survivor’s story is as different as it is harrowing. 

Nineteen-year-old model Chloe Ayling was kidnapped by masked men whilst on a modelling assignment in Italy. Terrified, she was taken to a remote farmhouse where her captors photographed her and told her she was to be sold as a sex slave at an online auction. These men claimed to form part of the shadowy world of online slave auctions on the dark web, and gangs who kidnap to order, but the truth behind Chloe’s kidnappers’ identities was more extraordinary than she ever could have imagined. 

Last year one man was convicted of the kidnap, his brother is shortly to face trial in Italy on a similar charge. This intimate and powerful testimony from Chloe tells the real story behind the current sensational headlines.

Seventeen-year-old Sunny Angel was stalked by a man over twice her age. He threatened her family and forced her into a deeply abusive relationship which saw her trapped in his home for months. Following threats that he would sell her for sex she managed to escape his clutches.

When Anna was just 15-years-old, she was imprisoned in a house by a taxi driver she trusted.  Abused for years, he sold her for sex and even sold her babies after she became pregnant. 

Melody was tricked by her fiancé into coming to the UK from Nigeria. Once here he took her passport and forced her to work in a brothel. 

This harrowing and moving film lifts the lid on the murky, underground world of sex slavery and violence.

Casualty 24/7

A mini-heatwave has hit Barnsley Casualty, and as the temperature rises so do patient numbers.

 Paramedics rush in 94-year-old Doris, who has a gaping wound on her leg after an incident with a stair-lift. Leading her care is Consultant Doctor John Raynor who says, ‘in the grand scheme of these wounds, this is probably the worst one I’ve ever seen.’

 In Paediatrics, three-year-old Ophelia is brought in by her Dad after a mis-hap with a sun cream bottle. So Play Leader Lindsay Holmes is called on to employ her best distraction techniques.

 50-year-old Mark was enjoying the good weather until he had an accident with a garden shredder and a metal rod went into his hand. Consultant Doctor Bharath Reddy is treating him, but his first job is to stop the heavy bleeding.

 The next patient to be seen is 64-year-old Melvin. He suffers with COPD, an incurable lung disease, and he’s brought in by ambulance with severe breathing difficulties. Consultant Doctor Clare Ginnis treats him and explains, ’we’re in a very privileged position to meet people at their most vulnerable.’

 Advance Nurse Practitioner Chantelle Proctor assesses 27-year-old Jack who’s arrived in Casualty after collapsing at work. She must determine what caused his black-out and how to stop it happening again.

 And there’s debate among the staff about what makes them feel queasy, as Advanced Nurse Practitioner Richard Jackson says, ‘I think it helps to have an iron stomach to do this job.’
