Life

image

From Sunday 24 April 9.30pm

An explosive series exploring the human capacity for connection in a splintered society. When the lives of the residents of a large house intersect, hidden secrets connect them in ways they couldn’t have anticipated.

Life is an explosive new six-part drama series from the team behind BAFTA-winning global hit Doctor Foster. Created by multi-award-winning writer Mike Bartlett, Life explores the human capacity for connection in an increasingly splintered society.

In Manchester, England, the residents of a large suburban house go about their very different lives. The walls that divide their flats keep them apart. But life has a way of bringing people together.

David (Adrian Lester), a happily married university lecturer, is torn by temptation when he meets an impulsive younger woman. As Gail (Alison Steadman) approaches her 70th birthday, a chance encounter makes her question the choices she’s built her whole life around. Secret alcoholic Belle (Victoria Stone) is managing to maintain a fragile happiness, until her wilful 15-year-old niece crashes into her neatly ordered existence. And heavily pregnant Hannah (Melissa Johns), who has two men in her life, must choose between desire and dependability.

Like all ordinary lives, theirs are filled with the extraordinary. And as their stories begin to intersect, hidden secrets connect these characters in ways that could never have been anticipated.

ABC NEWS channel will have live coverage all day, with the major national services in full and crossing to marches in all state capitals. Plus, we’ll hear from ABC News reporters in regional areas and overseas to see how Australians are marking the day.

Griff’s Canadian Adventure

From Saturday 30 April 6.00pm

British Comedian and travel enthusiast Griff Rhys Jones embarks on a journey across the second largest Country on the planet: Canada. From mountain ranges and vast prairies to glittering cities and ice-locked towns, Griff will travel some 4000 miles, nearly 7000km, from Newfoundland and Labrador on the rugged Atlantic Coast in the East, all the way across the country, to Vancouver Island in the Pacific NorthWest.

As he travels Griff will uncover what makes each province so tantalisingly unique yet distinctly Canadian; from the Frenchness of cosmopolitan Quebec City and Montreal in Quebec to the isolation and coldness of the frozen North in Manitoba and the richness of the endless prairies across Alberta and Saskatchewan. He’ll reveal how the history of each province has impacted its past, present and future, and helped shape the Canada of today.

Throughout his journey he’ll be given a challenge to learn to appreciate each province like a local. Will he leave Ontario with a genuine Canadian souvenir? Can he uncover what it means to be good in the kitchen in Newfoundland and Labrador? Will he refresh his mind, body and spirit while in British Columbia? Each challenge will offer him the opportunity to live like a local and uncover aspects of life particular to each province, with a little help from the local characters and experts he meets along the way.

Episode One - Newfoundland: Bigness
In this first episode, Griff explores Newfoundland and Labrador in the East and uncovers what makes Canada distinctly unique and decidedly ‘big’.

Call the Midwife - Season 10

From Saturday 30 April 8.20pm

Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) and Dr Turner (Stephen McGann) clash over whether to provide a private care service, and a distressing birth raises fears of another Thalidomide case.

It’s 1966, and it’s a testing time for the midwives. But there’s excitement, too, as the women’s rights movement intensifies.

With Trixie’s (Helen George) help, Sister Julienne (Jenny Agutter) is determined to steer Nonnatus House out of its financial quandary. Dr Turner (Stephen McGann) deals with an array of difficult cases including a former soldier involved in nuclear test explosions. Meanwhile, Sister Monica Joan (Linda Bassett) experiences a crisis of faith, and Sister Frances (Ella Bruccoleri) realises she needs to be a little less spiritual if she’s to really connect with the local women.

There are some interesting challenges ahead, as well as great celebrations when England wins the World Cup.

In this episode, Sister Julienne and Dr Turner clash over whether to provide a private care service, and a distressing birth raises fears of another Thalidomide case.

Production credit: Series Creator/Lead Writer: Heidi Thomas, Producer: Anne Tricklebank, Executive Producers: Mona Qureshi, Pippa Harris, Heid Thomas and Ann Tricklebank. A Neal Street Production for BBC/PBS.

All Australians invited to join the ABC’s 90th birthday celebrations

Australia’s national broadcaster, the ABC, turns 90 this year and is inviting all Australians to celebrate the milestone, with community events and special programming planned across television, radio, online and social platforms.

The celebrations will run across much of 2022 with the key event, a live 90-minute television special, to be broadcast on Thursday 30 June 2022 – almost 90 years to the day that the Australian Broadcasting Commission, as the ABC was then called, first went to air, launched by Prime Minister Joseph Lyons.

Since that time, the ABC has grown from 12 radio stations into a multi-media organisation, broadcasting from more than 66 capital city and regional locations, and around the world from 11 international bureaux.

Announcing the ABC’s 90th celebration plans, Managing Director David Anderson said the anniversary was an opportunity for all Australians to share in the ABC’s rich history.

“The ABC has been part of everyday life in Australia since 1932. It has played a big part in documenting our country’s development and achievements over nine decades, and has grown and adapted to changing times, in step with the nation,” he said.

“In 2022 we are as relevant and connected to Australian life as we ever have been. We are Australia’s most trusted media organisation, and we reach close to 70 per cent of the population each week through our metropolitan and regional radio networks, our four national radio networks, our four digital television channels, seven digital-only radio channels, our digital sites, social media sites and our on-demand services ABC iview and the ABC listen app.”

ABC Chair, Ita Buttrose, said the organisation’s 90th celebrations were about giving back to Australians. “The ABC has always reflected Australian life. It is at its very best when it is celebrates the achievements of all Australians and the things that make this country such a special place in what is the world’s oldest continuous culture. We’re proud of our past and are optimistic about our future, and in the coming months we invite people to join in our celebrations.”

Ms Buttrose will present this year’s Andrew Olle Media Lecture in Sydney on Friday 17 June.

An ensemble cast of ABC’s favourite presenters will host ABC 90 Celebrate! – a live 90-minute television event starting at 8.00pm on Thursday 30 June 2022. It will be broadcast from the ABC’s Sydney studios and connect with ABC studios and presenters in the other capital cities and in regional locations across the country. There will be familiar faces from the past and present, some surprise guests and crosses to international locations.

Father Brown

Season 9 Final, Episode 10 (100th Episode)

Saturday 4 June 7.30pm

The 100th episode features the welcome return of Emer Kenny as Bunty and Alex Price as Sid, while viewers will finally be introduced to the feted Lord Monty Montague, played by Alexander Hanson.

As 1953 comes to a close. Lady Felicia (Nancy Carroll) and Lord ‘Monty’ Montague (Alexander Hanson) host a lavish masked ball counting down to 1954. But their plans are ruined when the Minister of Defence, Sir Charles Hakeworth (Richard Dillane) is murdered by a masked figure.

With the estate locked down and a killer in the midst Father Brown (Mark Williams) and the gang must find the real perpetrator.

Meanwhile, Lady Felicia is forced to confront problems in her marriage when a letter from a Flambeau (John Light) offers an exciting prospect in America.

When a second guest, Ruth Moulton (Cam Spence) is attacked by ‘the Red Death’, which seems unconnected to Sir Charles death, Dr Muthomi (Caleb Frederick) comes to her aid.

As the search for the killer intensifies Father Brown suspects there’s more to the case than first meets the eye. Can he piece together the mystery before the clock strikes 12 or is this the final waltz?

Father Brown has become a global success since making its BBC debut in 2013, and is now broadcast in more than 232 territories around the world, including primetime in the US.

Production credit: A BBC Studios production for BBC.

Ten commissioned an Australian adaptation of Long Lost Family, hosted by Chrissie Swan, which ran for one season in 2016.

FTA Premiere

Kevin McCloud revisits Adrian and Megan, whose dream home in East Sussex became a nightmare. With the house now fully complete, what is living in a cutting-edge concrete bunker really like?

Kevin McCloud revisits rural East Sussex to meet concrete obsessed professional deep-sea diver Adrian, who fell in love with cold uncompromising concrete in the skateparks of Scotland. Back in 2016 he convinced his wife, Megan, to build their new family home entirely out of concrete – both inside and out. No cladding, no carpets, no plaster, or wallpaper, it was to be as pure a concrete building as humanly possible. Adrian believed his raw, exposed, modular concrete home would be the ultimate 21ˢᵗ century country house.

However, the perils of being a pioneer soon became evident for project manager Adrian. Installation of the foundations, using a high-tech reinforced concrete mix they hoped would save them £40,000, fell afoul of building regulations. Another recipe, designed to overcome concrete’s reputation as a poor insulator, refused to pour properly. With both schedule and budget under strain, Adrian was forced to resume work as a North Sea diver, leaving Megan juggling this messy challenging build, all the while looking after three young children.

By 2018 water leaks were still to be addressed, most of the spaces were raw and unfinished and the family were still a long way away from moving into their concrete dream.

Now, two and a half years after his last visit, with the house now fully complete, Kevin returns to see what living in a cutting-edge concrete bunker is really like.

Ithaka: A fight to free Julian Assange

Tuesday 7 June 8.30pm

Filmed over two years across the UK, Europe and the US, this 2- part documentary follows 76-year-old retired builder, John Shipton’s tireless campaign to save his son, Julian Assange.

This 2-part factual series begins on April 11th, 2019, when images of Julian Assange being arrested from the Ecuadorian embassy in London are beamed across the world.

Since that moment Julian has been silenced and into the void have stepped lawyers, advocates, and supporters. Standing unique among them is Julian’s fiancée, Stella Moris and 76-year-old father, John Shipton – a self-taught builder from Sydney.

Not what he was expecting in his retirement years, John launches into a relentless schedule traversing Europe, engaging in countless press interviews, meeting politicians, and engaging with supporters in street protests, in an effort to help his son.

As the international media descend, Ithaka tracks Julian’s fiancée Stella Moris, through her journey from Julian’s ‘secret family’ to a fierce public advocate for Julian and press freedoms. It also follows John & Stella as they rally members of the public, advocate to politicians and cautiously step into the media’s glare - where they are forced to enter the fray and confront perceptions with the actual implications of Julian’s incarceration.

The film culminates in early 2021, when the UK verdict to extradite Julian to America collides with a pandemic and an explosive US presidential election.

Using Julian’s extradition hearing as a framework, this intimate story of a family’s crisis traces moments from the trial and its aftermath, underscoring how Julian’s story is emblematic of a decade of uncertainty and volatility.

Production credit: A Shipton House Production. Principal production funding from Screen Australia in association with Film Victoria. Written and Directed by Ben Lawrence. Produced by Gabriel Shipton and Adrian Devant. Executive Producer Roger Savage. Original Music by Brian Eno. ABC Manager of Documentary Stephen Oliver. Head of Factual and Culture Jennifer Collins.
