As a result, he’s sold the majority stake to a group of local businessmen, including popular radio personality Matt Jones.

Raphael Rowe is one tough cookie. Not only did he spend 12 years behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit, he’s since made it his job to visit some of the world’s most intimidating and unpleasant prisons to give us a taste of life for the inmates. Now in its seventh series, Raphael is off to a staggeringly tough prison in the Czech Republic, a jail reserved for drug offenders in Bali Indonesia, a more liberal institution in Finland and, finally, a prison in the Solomon Islands that houses dangerous sexual offenders. As ever, it’s jaw-dropping stuff.
Selling The OC
The Oppenheim Group’s Orange County office opens its doors once again, inviting viewers in for a second season of professional and personal fireworks. If you thought the crew at the original Los Angeles office were ambitious and cut-throat, you’re in for a shock. In the first series, the OC lot managed to take things up a notch, leaving us on a cliffhanger that saw a huge falling-out between Alexandra Rose and Alexandra Jarvis on one side and Kayla Cardona, Alexandra Hall and Polly Brindle on the other. Will they still be at loggerheads when we return? And how will Tyler Stanaland’s recent divorce affect the balance between the gang? And will they have any time left to flog some fancy houses? We can’t wait to find out.

We’re off to France for this fictionalised biographical drama about Bernard Tapie. If you’ve not heard of him, Tapie was a larger-than-life businessman, politician, singer, actor and TV host, who rose from humble French working-class beginnings to become an iconic, if controversia,l figure in his homeland. After making his fortune reviving failing companies – including Adidas – Tapie hit the headlines internationally in the early 90s when, as the owner of French football club Marseille, he was found guilty of match fixing and fraud, and sentenced to 26 months in prison. With Laurent Lafitte in the lead role, the full-throttle and colourful seven-episode series relives his remarkable rise, dramatic fall and unexpected return to public life as an actor. In French, with subtitles.
The Morning Show
Wake up and smell the coffee: The Morning Show is back on the air. Following an epic two-year wait, the third season of the glossy, star-studded drama is here and by the looks of it, life has got even <more> intense at TV network UBA. With the bombshell death of fired news anchor Mitch still casting a shadow, host Alex (Jennifer Aniston) – alongside co-presenter Bradley (Reese Witherspoon) – wants more influence at the network, much to the dismay of Cory (Billy Crudup). But a devastating cyber attack and the potential release of some toxic secrets put the company’s future in doubt. Is the lifeline offered by billionaire Paul Marks (Jon Hamm) the answer to everyone’s problems, or the final nail in the network’s coffin?
Welcome To Wrexham
The phenomenon that is Welcome To Wrexham returns, with the Welsh club’s owners – Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney – hoping to see their team make it back into the English Football League after 15 seasons away. Okay, if you’re into football, or you were a fan of the first series, chances are you already know how the 2022-23 season ended for Wrexham, and therefore how this new second series will pan out. But that doesn’t make it any the less nail-biting, breathless and, believe it or not, emotional. And that’s because, while the famous owners and players like striker Paul Mullin and keeper Ben Foster bagged all the headlines, it’s the dedication and dreams of staff and supporters off the pitch that make this such an involving watch. Up the Red Dragons!

Wildlife filmmaker and adventurer Bertie pops the lens cap off his camera once again and sets off to capture some of the most wondrous creatures on Earth.

And because he wants it to be spectacular, he’s ready to put himself in some very uncomfortable positions to do it, including climbing mountains, diving in ice-cold seas and even sleeping while suspended 120 feet in the air.
The Other Black Girl
Demoralised and bored of being the only Black woman at the New York publishers where she works, Nella (Sinclair Daniel) is delighted and excited to meet new employee Hazel (Ashleigh Murray), who also happens to be Black. The pair immediately become friends and allies but before too long, Nella receives strange messages telling her to leave the company, while Hazel appears to be progressing more quickly than she is.

Three single BFFs – Tamara, Marcia and Paige – are on the hunt for a serious relationship.
