Paul O'Grady's Working Britain
Season 1 Episode 1 of 2
Work The comedian presents the first of two programmes in which he explores the history of the British working class. For Paul, these were the people who made Britain great, from the dark days of the Industrial Revolution to the hairnets and rubber gloves of the factory line. But what happened when these jobs were no more? Travelling from his childhood town of Birkenhead to Clyde in Glasgow, he discovers the factories and mines that were at the heart of industry and the effects of their disappearance. He also speaks to people who are keeping the culture and values of the class alive and tries his hand at some typical jobs to see whether the sense of pride has survived

Utopia: In Search of the Dream
Season 1 Episode 3 of 3
A Good Place Within Professor Richard Clay asks whether utopia is a state of mind that can therefore be found within. He explores the many means people have created to immerse themselves in a perfect moment, of epiphany or transcendence, pushing the boundaries of artistic expression and pleasure. Seeking answers in a broad range of arts, the art historian tries to compose a haiku and uncovers traces of the hedonistic medieval carnival tradition in the churches and pubs of Lancashire. He also compares and contrasts different musical escapes, interviewing Acid House legend A Guy Called Gerald (aka Gerald Simpson) and the celebrated minimalist composer Steve Reich. Last in the series

A Very British Murder with Lucy Worsley
Season 1 Episode 2 of 3
Detection Most Ingenious In the second programme, the historian explores how science and detection influenced the popular culture of murder during Victorian times. Writers including Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins were fascinated by grisly crimes, and the literary genre that came out of it captured the imagination of readers. The presenter also reveals that when Jack the Ripper began his reign of terror in London at the same time Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was published, the idea of the serial killer was introduced to the British public
