Agatha Raisin - Season 4

image

Friday 1 July 8.00pm

Agatha is hired to protect a woman from her ghosts of Christmas past, but when she’s found dead, Agatha has a murder investigation on her hands, with everyone in the village a would-be suspect - including the woman’s children.

It’s the week before Christmas and Agatha is hoping this will be a good one, but when Roy questions her commitment to the cause, she decides to give him the role of making it the best Christmas ever.

Whilst Roy is off making plans in full PR mode, Agatha receives a letter from the residence of Lower Tapor Manor, asking for protection against some ghosts of Christmas past that may be coming home to roost. Roy is reluctant to help, but Agatha thinks there’s no harm in taking a look at the job as it will probably be a quick one.

After a horrendous evening at Lower Tapor Manor, Agatha and Roy spend the night in the guest bedroom, hoping for it all to be over in the morning - until the protection detail turns into a murder investigation.

Agatha brings the gang together to solve the whodunnit and, with the whole of Lower Tapor village a suspect, the Agatha Raisin Detective Agency have their work cut out to find the culprit.

Elizabeth: The Unseen Queen

Friday 24 June 8:30 PM

A remarkable, heart-warming and historically unique documentary providing an unprecedented insight into the Royal family through the very private and unseen collection of Her Majesty the Queen’s home movies.

The Split - Season 3

From Saturday 25 June 8:20pm

From Emmy and Bafta award-winner Abi Morgan comes the final series of The Split, an entertaining drama set in the fast-paced world of London’s high-end divorce circuit.

The final series focuses on the split between Hannah (Nicola Walker) and Nathan (Stephen Mangan). The two divorce lawyers are facing their own divorce amicably and working towards an agreement – until shock revelations prompt a painful and messy showdown.

Meanwhile Ruth (Deborah Findlay) has moved in with Hannah, but is spending more time with lover Prof Ronnie (Ian McElhinney) than being a helpful grandmother.

Nina (Annabel Scholey) is juggling being a single mum, holding down her job and negotiating a secret affair. And Rose (Fiona Button) and James (Rudi Dharmalingar) are beginning the adoption process – but an unexpected event turns their lives upside down.

Throughout it all this messy, blended, authentic family of lawyers and lovers prove that divorce doesn’t have to mean failure – and that there is great hope after The Split.

Carbon: The Unauthorised Biography

image

Tuesday 12 July 8.30pm

Narrated in first person by Sarah Snook, & accompanied by celebrated scientists, and unique animations, this documentary tells the surprisingly intimate story of the element that made the Earth & everything in it.

In Carbon: The Unauthorised Biography, world-leading scientists tell the surprisingly intimate story of the element that made the Earth and everything in it. In a world-first, the atom itself gets to tell its own story, voiced by distinguished Australian actor Sarah Snook (Succession; Steve Jobs; Pieces of a Woman).

Carbon is part of the air and the ground, the plants and the animals. It makes coal and diamonds. It built the planet and, as its concentration swells in the atmosphere, it is now also cooking it.

This documentary – from Emmy Award-winning Australian company Genepool Productions and Sundance Award-winning Canadian filmmakers Handful of Films – tells the story of carbon, from its unlikely creation in superheated, violent cosmic forges, to its endless cycling through photosynthesis, minerals, plastics – and the very air we breathe.

Carbon’s remarkable history is told by several distinguished researchers, including: American astrophysicist, cosmologist and author Neil deGrasse Tyson, Australian astrophysicist and dark matter expert Tamara Davis, American geologist and author of Symphony in C - Carbon and the Evolution of (Almost) Everything", Bob Hazen, British materials scientist, engineer, broadcaster Mark Miodownik, Canadian biologist and animal sexuality expert Carin Bondar, Australian award-winning climate scientist Joelle Gergis, Canadian climate scientist and Chief Scientist of The Nature Conservancy Katherine Hayhoe and Canadian forest ecologist and originator of the “mother tree hypothesis” Suzanne Simard.

The scientists are joined by others whose lives are intimately tied up with carbon, including Australian solar energy entrepreneur Andy McCarthy and Canadian Indigenous language activist and Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks Guardian Gisele Martin.

Production credit: Carbon: the unauthorised biography is produced by Genepool Productions and Handful of Films.

The Secret Garden

Saturday June 18 5:40pm

THE SECRET GARDEN tells the story of Mary Lennox (Dixie Egerickx -Genius, The Little Stranger), a prickly and unloved 10-year-old girl, born in India to wealthy British parents.

When they die suddenly, she is sent back to England to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven (Academy Award® and BAFTA-winner Colin Firth – A Single Man, The King’s Speech, Bridget Jones’s Baby) at Misselthwaite Manor, a remote country estate deep in the Yorkshire moors, under the watchful eye of Mrs. Medlock (BAFTA-winner Julie Walters – Mary Poppins Returns, Harry Potter, Mamma Mia) and with only the household maid, Martha (Isis Davis - Guilt, Electric Dreams) for company.

Mary begins to uncover many family secrets, particularly after chancing upon her sickly cousin Colin (Edan Hayhurst – Genius, There She Goes), who has been shut away in a wing of the house, and through her discovery of a wondrous garden, locked away and lost within the grounds of Misselthwaite.

While searching for Hector, a stray dog that led Mary to the garden walls, she befriends local boy Dickon (Amir Wilson – His Dark Materials, The Kid Who Would Be King) who, through the garden’s restorative powers, helps her to fix Hector’s injured leg.

Once brought together, these three damaged, slightly misfit children heal each other as they delve deeper into the mysteries of the garden – a magical place of adventure that will change their lives forever.

Production details: A Heyday Films Production

The ABC and six other broadcasters from around the world have launched a major global co-funding initiative for ambitious high-end science documentaries.
