Drama and doccies on BBC channels in SA

New to BBC Earth (DStv channel 184) in South Africa is the documentary series, Flying to the Ends of the Earth, which airs from 7.30 pm on Tuesday, July 19.

In the show, Arthur Williams flies to some of the most remote and spectacular parts of the world to find out how people thrive in areas that can only be reached by aeroplane.
In episode one he finds out how small planes are changing the way of life in some of the remotest parts of Nepal.

In episode two he travels to Australia and Papua, where he meets a young couple running a ranch the size of Wales, visits a desert island and explores the remote jungles of Indonesia.

And in the third and final episode Arthur visits Canada’s vast untamed wilderness as he takes a flying boat to the Great Bear Rainforest, and visits a Native American community in the far north.

Also new to the BBC channels bouquet is the drama series, Unforgotten, which can be seen from 8 pm on Wednesday, July 20 on BBC First (DStv channel 119).

This crime drama focuses on a cold case reopened after 39 years. When the body of a young man is discovered in a derelict building, DCI Cassie Stuart – one of the Met’s smartest detectives – is called in to investigate.

There are four suspects: a clergyman, an eminent entrepreneur, a community worker and a wheelchair-bound husband caring for his wife. Each has a secret to hide. As their lies unravel, the people they love most begin to wonder what else they might be capable of. Nothing in this case is black and white. What secrets have they buried?
