Henry VIII And The King’s Men

Sunday 30 May at 08:30 PM, 09:30 PM and 10:30 PM

Tracy Borman fronts this series based on her best-selling book of the same name. Following in the footsteps of her successful series “Private Lives of the Monarchs” Borman paints the portrait of England’s most famous king and the enablers, the fools, the teachers and the men at arms who knew him best and shaped his outlook on the world.

Ep1 This episode tells the story of Henry VIII’s early life and the way in which the man he was to become was shaped by the men he grew up with.

Ep 2 This episode charts the first phase of Henry VIII’s reign as Dr Tracy Borman reveals how his less than kingly upbringing had made him a very different man from his father.

Ep 3 With the king’s former Chief Minister, Cardinal Wolsey, dead, his shoes were filled by his protégé Thomas Cromwell who enacted the policy of the dissolution of the monasteries.

Heliopolis: The City Of The Sun

Friday 28 May at 7:30 PM

Cairo, March 2017 - construction workers make a spectacular discovery beneath metres of rubble. At the bottom of a deep pit, buried in mud and debris, lies an enormous crowned stone head.

Nearby the torso and plinth. These are the remains of a colossal quartzite statue, 9 metres high and weighing several tons. It’s an archaeological sensation, a clear indication that this was once the heart of an ancient, legendary metropolis - Heliopolis.

Robson Green: Walking Hadrian’s Wall

From Thursday 3 June at 8:35 PM 3 episodes

From its Easternmost point of Segedunum, Robson sets off on his 84-mile-long journey in Hadrian’s footsteps. Along the way he discovers the boyish thrill of geocaching, learns of the Roman Frontier’s Las Vegas, Corbridge, and its game-changing finds, and sees how some thrifty neighbours repurposed the wall in Wall for their own needs. He even finds time for a dip in the Tyne near his hometown of Hexham, and a refuel with a classic Northumbrian treat, before burying a little treasure of his own.

Australia’s Biggest Singalong just finished (at 10.22pm). I think it went relatively smoothly overall. Throw Your Arms Around Me was the song they sang at the end.

There was only just one technical glitch - when one of the crosses to one of the viewers didn’t work (from the viewers side).

I started watching it but it was really tedious. Even those in the audience looked bored with it within a few minutes.
