David Attenborough’s Richmond Park
A very special documentary sees the living legend David Attenborough walk us through the wildlife of iconic Richmond Park. In this one-off documentary, we discover the many species of insects that inhabit the grounds. Beautifully shot with drone technology, this is not to be missed!
In this series, we catch up with Wendy and Julie as they embark on their fourth series of Crafty Beggars in the House! This ten-part series has special guests and exciting arts and crafts. Joining them in the programme is Pound Paradise shelf-stacker Bev Macca, bringing you the lighter side of crafts! Ever wanted to know how to make a barbecue out of a washing machine drum? Need some exciting cocktail recipes for entertaining Christmas guests? Then tune in and get some great ideas for those last-minute presents! Don’t forget there’s a wrapping masterclass, so those Smarties tubes will be a doddle to wrap this Christmas!
In this series of London Undercover we delved into the subjects that matter in London! Be prepared for candid views and open conversations as we bring you the important stories not covered elsewhere. Topics in this series included religion, housing, knife-crime, and much more. Be sure to take a look back at 2017 in the life of the real London!
Colour in Your Life
Set your artistic senses into overload as we look back at the best of a wonderful series! Artist Graeme Stevenson joins artists in their studios to give you an insight to their work and lives, and an opportunity to enhance your knowledge of art and painting techniques. Graeme’s idea is that by artists sharing their knowledge, work, and technique in their working studios, you can learn about the arts and be motivated to pick up a paintbrush. Learn, appreciate, and be inspired!
In these colds months, plan the summer ahead with Andrew White, who's back on the channel with his third series of Walks Around Britain. In this series, you can join him as he visits Ramsey on the Isle of Man, The Great Orme in North Wales, and Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire to the Ribblehead Viaduct in Yorkshire. From the comfort of your armchair, get inspired to discover what makes Britain great!
