WEEK 43

101 Adorable Puppies

As a nation there’s one thing that that unites us, our love of puppies. And we’ve scoured the globe for 101 of them. From the cute and fluffy, to the playful and mischievous, and the most adorable and scrumptious.   In this one hour special narrated by Ashley Jensen we have them all. 

We’ll see puppies finding their way in the world, from their formative moments post birth to their wobbly first steps and their inquisitive take on the big wide world.

In their first days, during the neonatal period, we’ll see puppies so small they fit in the palm of your hand. At that age they do a lot of sleeping as our four cute Shiba Inu pups know, as we see them deep in the land of nod, twitching legs and all.

There’s a fluffball who hasn’t yet learned that his tail is attached to him and some confused canines who are afraid of their own reflection. Plus, there’s 6 month old Chica the Chihuahua who, when faced with bath-time, paddles her legs like crazy even though she’s being held up by her owner!

There’s also a puppy who goes bananas over an orange, Blake a 12 week old who is a dab hand at bowling and a Labrador who’s totally confused by the picture of another dog on a cushion! Plus, Millie the Maltease poodle is has learned how to get treats just by being thoroughly adorable.

There’s also a collection of naughty puppies, puppies making friends with children and other animals including a rescue raccoon who gives a great massage.

Beatrice and Eugenie: Pampered Princesses?

They have been vilified, mocked, satirised and trolled. For their clothes, for their looks, for their privilege, for their holidays but probably most of all... because they simply happen to be the children of the Duke and Duchess of York. But does anyone know the real Eugenie and Beatrice?

In this programme we'll look at how close to reality the public perception of the princesses ninth and tenth in line to the throne actually is, with archive footage and interviews with royal insiders and the people who know them.

Eugenie and Beatrice have grown used to being called fashion disasters, and cruelly ridiculed in TV shows like The Windsors and The Royals; their public image is of a pair of work-shy freeloaders, sponging off the state and enjoying the trappings of wealth and privilege.

But is that anything close to reality? Does that take into account the enormous amount of charity work they do, the medical hardships they've faced and most of all, the challenges that have come from having Fergie and Andrew as mum and dad?

The Yorks divorced when both girls were younger than 10 years old, yet they remain incredibly close and loyal to their parents, Eugenie once describing them as "the best divorced couple" she knew.

We'll examine how tough it was growing up as young royals, enduring regular trial by tabloid and look at what they've tried to do to forge careers of their own.

Both now married - to an Italian multi-millionaire property developer and a British wine merchant - Eugenie and Beatrice are adored by the Queen. But what does the future hold for them both in a slimmed-down monarchy?

Henry VIII: Bloodlust & the Boleyns

Episode 2 takes viewers on a journey of marriage, affairs and tyrannical politics. It explores how Henry’s obsession with marrying Anne Boleyn results in a cataclysmic and hugely unpopular split with the Roman Catholic Church, while his relationship with Anne turns from infatuation to deadly hatred.

The true nature of Henry’s early infatuation is revealed by Tudor expert Dr Tracy Borman when she visits the archives of the Vatican Library in Rome to catch a privileged glimpse of Henry’s love letters to Anne.

Henry also has a secret weapon, his new chief advisor and enforcer – Thomas Cromwell – who personally oversees the plunder and destruction of Catholic monasteries across the land.

But Henry’s behaviour is becoming increasingly paranoid and tyrannical. Historian Dr Robert Hutchinson visits the Parliamentary Archives to see the legal document – The Treason Act – which turned Tudor England into a virtual dictatorship under Henry. He also examines a striking contemporary diary entry which reveals that a jousting injury probably caused Henry to have a traumatic brain injury, making him irritable and suspicious of everyone around him.

After the accident, Henry’s court becomes a nest of vipers where no-one is safe, particularly Anne Boleyn and Thomas Cromwell, who bear the brunt of the King’s increasingly unhinged behaviour. Desperate to save his own neck, Thomas Cromwell plots against Anne, finding ‘evidence’ that she had an affair behind Henry’s back with not one but five men. 

Anne is found guilty of treason and executed. Thomas Cromwell has out manoeuvred her, and Henry has got what he wanted – the chance for a new wife and a male heir.

Sara Pascoe once again welcomes captains Alan Davies & Darren Harriott into the Comedy Central loft. Helped as always by loyal sidekick John Kearns they have an array of silly games up their sleeves for this week's guests, Phil Wang, Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Ellie Taylor and Mark Watson.

Memorable moments that the guests will probably want to quickly forget include Mark & Kiri making ‘Say It Properly’ look much harder than it is, Darren making a surprisingly adorable frog in ‘What Am I’ and Ellie & Kiri taking mimicry to a whole new level in ‘Worst Impressions’.  However, the question remains will anyone be able to guess what mystery celebrity is inside John's mystery box this week?

Rich Kids, Skint Holiday

Nineteen-year-old Luke from Essex has a passion for designer shopping, calling Harrods his ‘second home’! He also loves travelling and takes around seven trips a year abroad where it’s five-star luxury all the way. He’s also a very skilled parkour athlete, you have to see his moves!

It’s all in stark contrast to the Bull family from Stoke-on-Trent, who have never been abroad together. Single Mum Steph gets by on just £800 a month plus benefits and has to save all year just to afford a caravan park.

But now Luke’s getting a taste of what a budget holiday’s all about, as he joins the Bulls for a low-cost break in Barmouth, North Wales. From the off, the family are flabbergasted at all the designer gear on show, with Steph totting up that Luke’s baggage alone equates to a whole month’s income. And that’s before she hears his aftershave cost £700 – “I could buy a car for that”, she exclaims!

A trip to a donkey sanctuary makes Luke realise how much fun a few pounds can provide and he gets into the spirit by offering some cheap entertainment on the beach with some parkour lessons.

Luke soon realises Steph’s tight holiday budget doesn’t stretch very far when he’s challenged to make dinner for five on just £16. His food shopping and cooking was all going so swimmingly well, until disaster strikes and his attempt at an omelette flip turns to a flop - all over the cooker!

But the rich kid quickly redeems himself by treating the Bulls to a steam train ride along the Welsh coast. And Luke saves the best ‘til last when, in an emotional goodbye, he reveals that he’s organised an all-expenses paid holiday for the family - that is this series biggest gift any Rich Kid has given. It’s something the Bull Family has dreamed of doing for years but couldn’t possibly ever afford!
