Autumnwatch 2021 (available from 1st November 2021)

Autumnwatch returns for a week of live wildlife stories from across the UK.

Enjoy the very best of the season in a natural escape that lets nature do the talking, including a woodland symphony composed using the sounds of fungi, nightlife images taken by a thermal camera, and wildlife dramas at Wild Ken Hill.

Join Chris Packham (Springwatch, Winterwatch), Michaela Strachan (Springwatch, Winterwatch), Gillian Burke (Springwatch, Winterwatch) and Megan McCubbin (Springwatch, Winterwatch) as they live broadcast the beautiful wildlife throughout autumn.


The Cleaner – Season 1 (available from 2nd November 2021)

Greg Davies (The Inbetweeners) stars as Wicky, a state-certified cleaning technician responsible for the removal of any signs of death from the scenes of ghastly crimes. When the detectives are done, he moves in, armed with his bleach, scrubbing brushes and cleaning rags. He’s a thoroughly decent everyman who always gets the dirty jobs.

Those jobs bring him into contact with the strangest people: those who knew the victims, and sometimes even the killers themselves, portrayed by A-List Guest stars like Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown) and David Mitchell (Peep Show). But because he’s a chatty man, Wicky tends to gossip more than he cleans.

With every crime scene there’s a new topical theme or moral question to debate – with whoever he finds himself talking to. And occasionally, even a clue the detectives have missed.


Mock the Week (available from 4th November 2021)

These days the weekly news might be easier to take with a touch of comedy. Combining the best elements of a panel show, stand-up and improvised games, this punchy panel show returns with Britain’s top comics taking a satirical swipe at the news and current events.


Shetland – Season 6 (available from 9th November 2021)

Based on the best-selling books by award-winning crime writer Ann Cleeves, Shetland follows Detective Jimmy Perez (Douglas Henshall, Outlander) and his team as they investigate crime within the close-knit island community.

In season 6, when a young man disappears on the overnight ferry to Shetland, DI Jimmy Perez and the team embark on a challenging case that leads them from the Shetland Islands to Glasgow.


Chef White’s (available from 23rd November 2021)

Set in the kitchen of a country house hotel and restaurant in rural Wales, the series follows the trials and tribulations of a head chef and his long suffering sous chef.

Alan Davies (QI) stars as Roland White, a celebrity chef who has grand ambitions but is a bit past his sell-by-date. When he can be bothered, Roland cooks up a storm, but for much of the time he leaves the kitchen to his sous-chef, Bib.

Bib should strike out on his own, but can never quite bring himself to abandon Roland because not only are they quarrelsome best friends – they need one another. And besides, they both enjoy a battle of wills with Caroline, the owner, who puts business before genius.
