Father Brown
Sat, 08/23/2014 - 9:00pm

When an ungodly man is murdered at the unveiling of a new church clock, Father Brown must find the killer before an innocent woman is sent to the gallows.

Set in the 1950s in the heart of the beautiful English countryside, Mark Williams stars as Father Brown, the Catholic priest who also happens to have a particular talent for solving crimes, in this adaptation of GK Chesterton's novels. Father Brown's world is quintessentially English: drawing rooms in large country houses, miles of countryside, village halls and secret gardens, as well as country fairs, railway stations and rural parish churches. Many years spent hearing his parishioners' confessions have given him an uncanny insight into the origins of evil and the workings of the criminal mind. Each episode sees the enigmatic priest investigate a crime in his own particular way. Full of humour and compassion, but with a big dramatic twist each time, this series remains true to the period charm of the original character and setting while bringing a contemporary edge to the storytelling.

Bitterly disappointed at coming in third, Henry Plummer consoles himself in secret with his real prize – a priceless, one-of-a-kind yellow Roth orchid, illegally smuggled out of Borneo. Then a classics scholar is poisoned, and her journal, written in Latin and detailing her rather naughty activities, provides Barnaby's first clue.

A Time Team American Presentation
Tue, 08/19/2014 - 9:00pm

Working against a three-day deadline TIME TEAM AMERICA digs for the skeletons of long extinct bison that roamed Oklahoma 10,000 years ago. Could this be the largest bison kill site in North America from the Folsom period? What can we learn about bison behavior, hunting practices and what hunters understood about their quarry?

TIME TEAM AMERICA plunges the viewer into the grime and glory of real-life archaeology: epiphany and exhaustion, discovery and disappointment. Through the dirt, the sweat, the dust and the rain, archeologists explore the mysteries of the past through what they find buried below the ground. Part adventure, part hard science, part reality show, TIME TEAM AMERICA applies the latest technology and the team’s collective expertise to solving the riddles of the past — against a ticking clock. The team has just three days to find out what it can at each site.
