Why is this listed as a new series? Its just the original Hard Quiz right? So shouldn’t it be a series return?

Edit You can delete this I think it was amended before I posted this reply.

Season 3 - Episode 22 is on 30 January then Series 4 starts 6 February so ABC have listed it as “New Series”.

Restoration Australia - Season 2

image|60x

Sunday 17 March at 7:40pm

Over each episode, Restoration Australia host Stuart Harrison, architect and historian, follows homeowners across the country as they restore forgotten heritage gems into living homes. This time the restoration challenge moves beyond old colonial homes to embrace houses from all periods, including iconic modernist masterpieces and even an inner-city gasworks.

From inner city grand terraces, to countryside homesteads, we start at the beginning of the homeowner’s restorations as they take the keys to their rundown properties in desperate need of some love, care and attention.

Their vision of re-creating the houses to turn them into ‘forever’ homes isn’t simple.

To faithfully restore with original fixtures and fittings, they first must replace termite damaged floors, water damaged walls, and rotten ceilings. Some homes don’t even have all four walls or a front door, but the homeowners cannot bear to see them torn down.

Stuart is going to help them fall in love with their homes even more by investigating the origins of the house and it is owners, informing viewers of the first homes of Australia and why they were built the way they were.

It’s not just a case of will their budget and time be stretched to the limit, but how are they going to do the property justice whilst creating homes suitable for 21st century living without losing the features they fell in love with in the first place.

From the federation eras all the way to mid-century modernist, there’s a style of house for every housing enthusiast.

Production credits: ABC Executive Producer, Leo Faber. Supervising Executive Producer, Brooke Bayvel. Executive Producer, Amanda Bainbridge. Supervising Producer, Steve Taylor. A Fremantle Australia production.

6 x 60 min episodes.

Looks like ABC has dropped the US PGA Tour highlights from its schedule (it aired on late Monday nights last year). Golf fans will have to resort to the internet for vision every week.

Maybe something to do with this?

The Cult of The Family

image|60x

From Tuesday 12 March at 8:30pm

Featuring testimony from the cult survivors, their relatives & those who are only now prepared to speak on the record, this 3-part series tells the strange & shocking story of one of the most bizarre cults in modern history.

The apocalyptic group The Family and their guru, Anne Hamilton-Byrne — one of few female cult leaders — captured international headlines throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Hamilton-Byrne, a yoga teacher who some followers believed was Jesus Christ in a female form, was glamorous, charismatic and as many allege, a dangerous psychopath. From her base in in the hills above Melbourne, she recruited wealthy professionals to join her cult, including psychiatrists, doctors, lawyers, nurses, architects and scientists.

The series spans over half a century, digging deep into the cult of The Family and its duplicitous, alluring leader. At the heart of her cult was a dark and terrible secret – a bizarre experiment to raise a ‘master race’ of children who would save the world after Armageddon. Along with her husband Bill, Anne was able to collect numerous children - some through adoption scams, some born to cult members and others unwittingly handed over by single mothers - to raise as their own. Home-schooled in an isolated compound, dressed identically and with dyed blonde hair, these regimented children were controlled by a group of ‘Aunties’ under Anne’s supervision. In 1987, after one of the children escaped, police and community services raided The Family’s lakeside compound.

The children recount terrible stories of near starvation, emotional manipulation, physical abuse and dosing with LSD and tranquillisers, but Anne cannot be found.

Her disappearance sparks an international police hunt. Can she be brought to justice? Despite Operation Forest, a five-year police investigation over three continents, Anne walks away without a jail sentence and just a paltry $5,000 fine.

How did she get off so lightly? How did Anne maintain a hold over her followers? And how did such a notorious group come to flourish?

The series follows two of the original lead characters, Millie (Rachael Stirling, Churchill’s Secret) and Jean (Julie Graham, Shetland), as they travel to America and join forces with US codebreakers Iris (Crystal Balint, The Good Doctor, Prison Break) and Hailey (Chanelle Peloso, Zapped, Incredible Crew) to tackle a string of new murder cases. Using their unique skills and intellectual abilities, the four women solve complex mysteries that baffle local law enforcement.

Call the Midwife Season 7

image|60x

From Saturday 6 April at 8:20pm

The hugely successful drama returns with more laughs, tears and inspiring stories from the nurses and nuns of Nonnatus House.

Inspired by the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, Call the Midwife follows the nurses and nuns from Nonnatus House convent, who visit the expectant mothers of Poplar, providing the poorest women with the best possible care.

The year is 1963, and the midwives find themselves tested both personally and professionally as never before. All around them they see the old East End vanishing, as the local community expands and familiar homes make way for bold new tower blocks.

It’s not just the area that’s changing. The much-loved characters are joined by West Indian midwife Lucille Anderson – a funny and clever nurse who brings a fresh burst of energy to life at Nonnatus House. Through her eyes we explore the experiences of the Caribbean nurses who came over in the 1960s to support the growing NHS.

Together, the midwives face challenging issues including leprosy, tokophobia, stroke and Huntingdon’s disease, all while fighting their own personal battles. Trixie’s romance with Christopher continues to develop, Nurse Crane finds her authority questioned from an unexpected quarter, Sister Monica Joan is forced to accept her failing faculties, and life for the Turners is turned upside down when Shelagh decides to employ an au pair.
