“I’ve been lucky enough to visit some incredible places over the years. Travel is my passion; it is in my blood. What you eventually see on your screen takes weeks to shoot and months to edit and we didn’t always have time to show you everything we filmed. We have kept the unseen stories safe and now I can reveal this treasure trove!” Joanna Lumley.

Episode 1: Japan to Siberia

Travel is Joanna Lumley’s passion. She has travelled the world, thousands of miles that take weeks to shoot and months to edit.

Starting in the Far East on the frozen Japanese sea of Okhotsk, she takes us across China, Mongolia, and ends at Lake Baikal in Siberia, where she meets some amazing seals.

Danny and the Human Zoo

Sunday 13 December at 8.40pm

A heart-warming, comic feature drama, loosely based on actor and comedian Lenny Henry’s life as a working-class teenager in 1970s Dudley.

The story centres around Danny Fearon (Kascion Franklin), a talented impressionist, and his working class Jamaican family. When Danny wins a talent competition at the local club he soon finds himself working the comedy circuit, eventually hitting the big time on TV, an unheard-of achievement for a young black boy. Danny has it all – fame, fortune, and the girl of his dreams.

But Danny’s new life isn’t all it seems. Exploited by an unscrupulous agent, Danny’s success drives a wedge between him and his family, including his colorful, high-spirited mother (Cecilia Noble) and pragmatic father, portrayed by Lenny Henry. Having made his name by becoming other people, Danny has to save himself by finding out who he really is.


Nigella’s Cook, Eat, Repeat

From Friday 1 January at 7.30pm

Nigella is back on our screens with the new series Cook, Eat, Repeat. Once again viewers can revel in the joy that Nigella and her food brings. Nigella’s calm unhurried approach and genuine pleasure in the food she makes, and eats will inspire everyone with a range of recipes that takes the most familiar of ingredients and simply elevates them to a different plane. This is home cooking at its best, combining simplicity and innovation to deliver unforgettable food that as the title suggests we will want to cook again and again.

Over 6 episodes Cook, Eat, Repeat will see Nigella at her most witty and thoughtful revealing where she finds inspiration for her recipes, from delving into her collection of vintage cookbooks to exchange ideas on social media. In this series Nigella gets to the heart of how food is woven into our everyday lives and the connection it provides - she’ll share the rhythms and rituals of her kitchen through a multitude of delicious recipes that will bring weekly servings of comfort and cheer to the nation.

Cook, Eat, Repeat debuted on the BBC on November 9 and episode 7 (scheduled for UK on December 21) is a one-hour Christmas special. It was Nigella’s first show since COVID-19 lockdown in Britain.

Strange that the ABC only provided synopses for episode 3 and episode 4 for Rick Stein’s Secret France. Where’s episode 1 and 2? There are six episodes in the series.

Designing A Legacy

Tuesday 2 February at 8:30pm

“Architecture isn’t about buildings at all, it’s about people.” – Paddy Dorney, son of architect Esmond Dorney.

“I believe that architecture has a spirit that can elevate us all, and that what we build, ultimately builds us. That is ‘Designing a Legacy’.” Tim Ross

Comedian, architecture enthusiast and design nerd Tim Ross takes us across Australia to meet the families whose lives have been shaped by the exceptional designs of their homes.

In this one-hour documentary, Tim explores how the architecture of our homes has the ability to affect more than those who grow up in those four walls - when we build with consideration and conviction.

Travelling from Queensland to Tasmania and stopping at inventive homes both unusual and surprising, Tim reveals their hidden stories to discover how what we design plays an important part in forging our national identity.

With stories of love, scandal, hope and care - this isn’t your typical show about buildings and architecture. It is a love letter to the people who devote themselves to making amazing homes, and what happens when they have to move on.

Designing A Legacy features iconic modernist masterpieces designed by legendary Australian architects including Robin Boyd, Esmond Dorney, Gabriel Poole, John Andrews, Chancellor & Patrick, Ken Woolley and more.

Production credits: Executive Producers, Tim Ross & Andrew Garrick. Writer/Host, Tim Ross. Writer/Director, Andrew Garrick. ABC Executive Producer, Factual, Ben Commens.

Death in Paradise - Season 9

From Saturday 6 February at 7:30pm

Detective Inspector Jack Mooney may have settled into life on the glorious Caribbean island of Saint Marie, but the murders keep coming. From an apparent serial killer on the loose on New Year’s Eve to an artist found poisoned in her studio, the cases are more baffling than ever. And an unexpected romantic encounter prompts some soul-searching for Jack.

With the news that Jack is leaving, the team are in need of a new DI, who arrives in the form of one Detective Inspector Neville Parker from Manchester. Which is lucky, because Neville’s a brilliant puzzle-solving detective with an incomparable knowledge and intellect. The only problem is, Neville is allergic to anything and everything and refuses to live outside his comfort zone. Which means the Caribbean is basically a living nightmare for him. He can see how Saint Marie is wonderful for those who love it, but it really doesn’t agree with him. For DI Neville Parker at least, paradise it is not…

Neville can’t complain for long though: he has some puzzling murders to solve. From a survival expert stabbed on a remote island to a woman killed behind two locked doors, Neville has his work cut out from the get-go. As do the rest of the team, as they try to make sense of their new boss…

I saw an interesting short film on ABC TV at lunchtime today. It was called Groundhog Night and it was part of Re-Frame, an anthology of short films made by people disability. It was hosted by Bridie McKim, the young actress from The Heights, who spoke to those involved in interview links between the movies.

Groundhog Night featured some big name actors too like Robyn Nevin, John Batchelor, Chris Haywood, Susan Prior and Emily Dash. Apparently, the writer/actress Genevieve Clay-Smith is working on turning this short film into a series. I quitd enjoyed it and I hope that happens.

Re-Frame was produced for the International Day of People with a Disability and has been available on iview. Did it ever screen in prime time? I don’t remember seeing anything about it.

Although, I was a bit shocked that this program screened in a daytime school holidays slot on ABC TV with some of the adult content and F-bomb language.
