Series 24

Episode 1

Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid return for the 24th series of Top Gear. This week features the astonishing, ultra-exclusive Ferrari FXXK, tested to the max by Chris Harris at the Daytona circuit in Florida. Matt, Chris and Rory then race across the vast wilderness of Kazakhstan in three high-mileage cars: a Mercedes saloon, a Volvo estate and a London taxi, all of which have done at least 480,000 miles, the equivalent distance of going to the moon and back. Their task is to get to the Baikonur Cosmodrome, from where the Soviets launched the first satellie, Sputnik 1. Actor James McAvoy guest stars in the studio and on the famous Top Gear test track.

1066: A Year to Conquer England

Episode 1

In this three-part drama documentary series, historian Dan Snow explores the political intrigues and family betrayals between Vikings, Anglo-Saxons and Normans that led to war and the Battle of Hastings.

When King Edward the Confessor dies without an heir, it triggers a bitter race to succeed him as King of England. Earl Harold is on the spot and takes the crown. But in Normandy, Duke William believes the throne has been promised to him and decides to invade. Meanwhile, in Norway, the Viking king Harald Hardrada also fancies himself as King of England, and he too puts together an invasion force. Very soon, England will be under attack.

Charlie Rose tv news program on PBS.

He's on vacation so his usual pro Israel, anti Palestinian bias isn't a factor in this week's programming. Just straight forward discussion with both sides of the issue well presented.

This Country

New six-part BBC comedy mockumentary exploring the lives of young people in modern rural Britain, focusing on cousins Kerry and Kurtan and their lives in the Cotswolds and written by and starring brother and sister Daisy May Cooper and Charlie Cooper.

Daisy May and Charlie play Kerry and Lee "Kurtan" Mucklowe, a pair of track-suited cousins washing about, bored to tears, in a fictional, dead-end Cotswolds village.

Based on Cirencester in Gloucestershire where Daisy May and Charlie grew up, it is the sort of place where so little happens that a scarecrow-making competition becomes one of the highlights of the year.

The tedium and the stifling lack of opportunity forces the characters, who are supposedly being filmed for a documentary exploring why young people in rural Britain "feel more marginalised than ever", to create their own daily dramas and myths. It is, by some distance, the funniest thing on television at the moment.

Here are some clips:
