    Peston
     
    Robert Peston brings his political magazine show to Wednesday nights to provide viewers with an fresh, intelligent and lively perspective on the big matters of the day in a brand new slot.
     
    Promising a stellar line-up of guests from across the political spectrum as well as cultural figures, Peston will feature major interviews with Westminster heavy hitters, topical guests and the very latest political gossip from inside the bubble.
     
    Co-presenter Anushka Asthana will help Peston fuel the conversation in the studio and online, with updates from social media taking in perspectives from viewers, experts and key-players throughout the programme.
     
    As the Autumn nights darken and the political temperature rises, with Brexit looming and politicians returning to work after a long hot summer off, Peston aims to shine a light on the stories you might have missed and to be at the heart of national debate.
     
    Peston says: “Britain is on the verge of making history. The stakes could not be higher, but so too are the uncertainties. What kind of Brexit will we have? Is Brexit certain? Can the divisions in the Conservative and Labour Parties be healed or will one or both parties split? How long will Theresa May remain as PM? How many Labour MPs will be thrown out by disgruntled members? Perhaps most important of all, can hope be restored that the UK will become a richer, fairer, less divided country?
     
    “Rarely has there been such a need to hold our political leaders and our elected representatives to account. Which is why I am so excited by the launch on Wednesdays of Peston, which will continue the tradition of Peston on Sunday with agenda-setting interviews, a digital conversation with the audience, cutting-edge graphical analysis, informality and fun.
     
    “And for those of you unaware why the show moved from Sunday to Wednesday, it was for no other reason than that the repeat of Peston on Sunday on Sunday nights was watched by twice as many people as the morning live show. So I and ITV thought we should convert it into a proper night time show. I could not be more pleased to be broadcasting after News at Ten on arguably the most important political day of the week."

After a lesson in cheese making Gino prepares a classic parmigiana di melanzane for the farmer and his family - can he do their award-winning cheese justice?
     
    He then travels further south to the extraordinary town of Polignano A Mare - which teeters 20 meters above the cliffs on a maze of sea caves. This is the international home of cliff diving - but can Gino make the jump? This is the only part of the Adriatic where the locals have historically eaten more meat than fish - so Gino creates a hearty healthy one-pot lamb stew.

    "Growing up at the end of the 1970s, I was football-mad. It was all I wanted to do but if you said come and watch England at Wembley, as a black teenager I would have said no chance." - Ian Wright
     
    This new two-part series fronted by Ian Wright marks a history-defining moment in English football - 40 years since Viv Anderson became the first black footballer to win a full cap for the England national team.
     
    Featuring key contributions from England manager Gareth Southgate, Ashley Cole, Les Ferdinand and Paul Ince, the series charts the rise of black footballers in Britain through individual players’ stories, combining fresh interviews with rare archive footage to provide a unique insight into how English sporting heritage and social culture has changed.  Starting in the 1970s when Anderson and his contemporaries burst on to the scene, Out of Their Skin tells in depth the story of the progress made by ethnic minority footballers across five decades up to today with a look at the challenges still being faced in 2018. 
     
    It focuses on some of English football’s black heroes and pioneers – with vivid and often emotional recollections of their personal experiences from Chelsea’s first black player Paul Canoville, who was abused by his own fans, as well as John Barnes and Paul Ince, who have both said being black can hinder a manager's ability to get a job - and the way their stories changed the ‘beautiful game’ in this country for good.
     
    Also featured are contemporary players Rhian Brewster and Raheem Sterling, who reflect on the impact their heroes had on the game, and the challenge football still faces to overcome racism today.

    Series overview
     
    Animal lover extraordinaire Paul O’Grady is back for a brand new eight-part series at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, ready to meet a whole new round of canine faces. Series 7 of the BAFTA-nominated programme will be filled with laughter and tears in equal measure, as Paul is faced with more abandoned and stray dogs, meets a few canine heroes and falls in love with some precious puppies along the way. 
     
    Episode 5
     
    In episode five Paul meets a mail order poodle bred to be the size of a teacup, a two-year-old Dogue de Bordeaux who it appears has been living in a cage and a high-energy Staffie who keeps being returned.
     
    Eighteen-month-old Staffie Cookie has been returned to Battersea twice because she is so hyper and jumpy in a home environment. Paul chats to the Battersea trainers who are on the case to try to work out how to channel her energy before she can be considered for rehoming again.
     
    Cookie turns out to be a great sniffer dog and Paul watches as she hunts out tiny bits of tennis ball with ease. The trainers think Cookie could have a great career as a working dog but, as most search and rescue dogs are spaniels, the working homes are reluctant to consider taking a Staffie. 
     
    However, there’s a glimmer of hope for Cookie when a prison security service say they might be interested in taking her on. Paul invites them to Battersea so they can see Cookie in action for themselves, but will she be good enough to get herself a job as the country’s first ever Staffie prison dog? 
     
    Next, Paul meets Charlie the miniature teacup poodle who weighs the same as a kitten. Charlie was bought online and shipped to the UK for training but she hurt herself and was taken to Battersea.
     
    Head vet Shaun Opperman explains to Paul that Charlie has to be x-rayed because she has brittle bones. He says: “This is one of the big problems with the teacup dogs, the way they’re bred, it’s going to throw up really unfavourable characteristics and that’s what’s happened, so these dogs have really brittle bones.”
     
    Paul says: “I see people walking down the street on the phone….and this dog hanging out of their bag. I feel like saying, ‘Excuse me, it’s a dog it should be on the floor, walking, getting exercise, not hanging out of your fake Prada handbag.’”
     
    Shaun explains that Charlie has three breaks on one leg and the best thing for her is going to be to remove it. Paul goes back to visit Charlie as she adjusts to life on three legs and he is delighted to discover that the staff members who fostered her have decided to keep her.
     
    Finally, Paul meets Maggie, a Dogue de Bordeaux who is only two-years-old but has already given birth to at least two litters of puppies. Maggie was found tied up in a park having only recently given birth. She’s got bed sores which show she’s been living in a cage and has not allowed out much.  Paul tries to play with her in the garden but she is too nervous. 
     
    Vets explain that Maggie needs to go under anaesthetic to have her ears cleaned and that they hope she’ll be more confident once she gets her hearing back.
     
    Produced by Shiver for ITV.

    How To Spend It Well At Christmas With Phillip Schofield
     
    “We have road-tested, rated and reviewed the very latest products hoping for a place under your tree, to reveal our very best picks for your hard earned cash this Christmas.” - Phillip Schofield
     
    As the nation gears up to for the Christmas shopping onslaught, Phillip Schofield is on hand to put the gifts vying for your festive funds to the test, aided by famous faces and members of the public.
     
    Each of the three programmes aims to give viewers a fun and informative guide to what's on offer in the stores and online by testing, rating and reviewing the very latest products jostling for a place under the tree -  from toys, to food and drink, to gifts and gadgets.
     
    From finding out if a pooping unicorn is really the top toy to get for Christmas to tasting the top festive fizz and trialling the latest yoga underwear, Phillip sets out to bring you the ultimate inside track on to what to buy in time for the festive season.
     
    Philip's wife Steph steps in to help test the products along with guest investigators Coronation Street star Simon Gregson and family, the cast of Emmerdale, Love Island’s two Jacks and Josh, Ninja Warrior’s Chris Kamara, fashion expert Gok Wan and his beloved dog Dolly, comedian Sally Phillips and her sons.
     
    Christmas is an expensive time of year and Phillip and his testers scour the shops, test and rate a host of products so they can advise on what they think viewers should spend their Christmas cash on among the bewildering array of products vying for attention, to ensure your yuletide cash brings smiles when the wrapping comes off on Christmas morning.
     
    And, at the end of each episode, Phillip reveals his own top three picks to go in his Christmas stocking. 
     
    Episode 1 - Toys
     
    In the first episode Phillip rates some of the latest "must have" toys, from stocking fillers to big ticket items, so he can give viewers the heads-up on what will be top of kids’ Christmas lists this year.
     
    With more than 200 interactive toys on the market, he hosts the Best Toy in Show Competition to test the latest high-tech electronic pets. Will the most expensive prove to be the most popular with our six and seven year old testers?
     
    Coronation Street’s Simon Gregson tests new board games with his and other families in Manchester to find out which game is worth splashing out on this Christmas.
     
    Football legend Chris Kamara takes to the race-track to test out electric ride-on toys with a group of young drivers - pulling out his speed gun in a bid to find the best motor that fits under the Christmas tree.
     
    While collectable toys have never been more popular, Phillip asks how much it actually costs to get a whole set, and the programme’s young investigators are given £50 to spend on Hatchimals, CollEGGtibles and Lego Mini Figures to see how far their money stretches.
     
    For teenagers, Phillip risks a fall by testing Segway’s high-tech roller skates that power themselves, while comedian Sally Phillips and her children find out what computer consoles are worth getting without breaking the bank.
     
    And with long-suffering parents in mind, Phillip investigates messy play toys including slime, sand and pens to ask which toy could cost the most in post-play clean-up time? He also reveals what he thinks are this year’s top five blockbuster toys.

    Series overview
     
    Animal lover extraordinaire Paul O’Grady is back for a brand new eight-part series at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, ready to meet a whole new round of canine faces. Series 7 of the BAFTA-nominated programme will be filled with laughter and tears in equal measure, as Paul is faced with more abandoned and stray dogs, meets a few canine heroes and falls in love with some precious puppies along the way. 
     
    Episode 4
     
    In episode four Paul meets a six-month-old puppy named Buddy in Battersea’s lost and found area. Buddy is a healthy-looking golden retriever, a breed rarely seen at Battersea, who has been found tied to a railing outside. His registered owners are identified by a microchip and Paul leaves them a voicemail message to let them know he is at Battersea. But after seven days there is still no response, so Paul gets stuck in with Buddy’s obedience training, to help him find a new home.
     
    Meanwhile, at the Old Windsor site, Paul meets a Bedlington terrier pup called Humphrey who has arrived in a bad way, with every skin condition under the sun including ringworm. Humphrey is red raw from itching and highly contagious, so Paul dons full protective clothing to give him a sympathetic cuddle, in spite of the deeply unpleasant smell caused by the bacterial infection on his skin.
     
    Humphrey has been brought in by a member of the public who found him living on the streets and clearly unwell. Handler Lucy is trying to make him more comfortable and Paul explains it is an unusual case for Battersea: “The thing is, with the homeless I’ve found, is they really love their dogs…they are always in good condition.” 
     
    Without access to vet care, Humphrey’s condition has got out of hand and lots of treatment baths and rest is in order to help his recovery. Thankfully Humphrey responds well to his antibiotics but with Paul growing more attached to him by the day, will he be able to let him go? Paul says: “I’m totally smitten. Who could not love this little fella? Why does this always happen to me?!”
     
    Paul joins Battersea’s head vet Shaun for an evening on the streets of London alongside a charity called StreetVet, whose volunteer vets help provide access to care for dogs belonging to the homeless in the UK. In East London, Paul meets three-year-old dog Bailey and his owner Andy, who has had him since a pup. Andy says: “My life was in a mess and just caring for him got me to sort myself out, I’m housed now, everything’s going great. I’ve been clean off the drugs since the day I had him. Every day he saves me because I wake up as an addict and you think about it but then I take my dog for a walk.”
     
    Shaun gives Bailey a quick MOT and finds he is in great health and a credit to Andy. Paul continues to be moved by seeing first-hand just how much the homeless community care for their dogs: “They always put their dogs first…The dog will get fed before them…they will put the dog’s health before their own health, it’s really humbling…”
     
    Produced by Shiver for ITV.

    Peston
     
    Robert Peston brings his political magazine show to Wednesday nights to provide viewers with an fresh, intelligent and lively perspective on the big matters of the day in a brand new slot.
     
    Promising a stellar line-up of guests from across the political spectrum as well as cultural figures, Peston will feature major interviews with Westminster heavy hitters, topical guests and the very latest political gossip from inside the bubble.
     
    Co-presenter Anushka Asthana will help Peston fuel the conversation in the studio and online, with updates from social media taking in perspectives from viewers, experts and key-players throughout the programme.
     
    As the Autumn nights darken and the political temperature rises, with Brexit looming and politicians returning to work after a long hot summer off, Peston aims to shine a light on the stories you might have missed and to be at the heart of national debate.
     
    Peston says: “Britain is on the verge of making history. The stakes could not be higher, but so too are the uncertainties. What kind of Brexit will we have? Is Brexit certain? Can the divisions in the Conservative and Labour Parties be healed or will one or both parties split? How long will Theresa May remain as PM? How many Labour MPs will be thrown out by disgruntled members? Perhaps most important of all, can hope be restored that the UK will become a richer, fairer, less divided country?
     
    “Rarely has there been such a need to hold our political leaders and our elected representatives to account. Which is why I am so excited by the launch on Wednesdays of Peston, which will continue the tradition of Peston on Sunday with agenda-setting interviews, a digital conversation with the audience, cutting-edge graphical analysis, informality and fun.
     
    “And for those of you unaware why the show moved from Sunday to Wednesday, it was for no other reason than that the repeat of Peston on Sunday on Sunday nights was watched by twice as many people as the morning live show. So I and ITV thought we should convert it into a proper night time show. I could not be more pleased to be broadcasting after News at Ten on arguably the most important political day of the week."

    ITV’s award winning On Assignment strand returns with its final programme of the year. China was the first country in the world to declare internet addiction as a clinical disorder. Debi Edward visits one of the country’s 300 treatment clinics that is trying to cure patients with military-style boot camps for children, teens and adults. Neil Connery travels to Madrid to meet Venezuelans who have fled the economic crisis in their country and considers the potential financial implications for Europe of some of those who caused the crash heading over the sea. Rageh Omaar explores the fascinating resurgence of Viking culture in Denmark, meeting the Danes building Viking ‘castles’ and archaeologists uncovering evidence that suggests that despite their traditional image Vikings were sophisticated statesman and diplomats.
     
    INTERNET ADDICTION – CHINA – DEBI EDWARD
     
    China has 800 million internet users, dominating the online world, but that rapid adoption of technology is being blamed for the growth in web addiction. Debi Edward visits one of the country’s treatment centres trying to cure adults, teenagers and children through military-style boot camps. More than half of those seeking treatment in China have become violent, and 90 percent diagnosed with depression. Debi also explores allegations of physical abuse at some of the centres.  
     
    VENEZUELANS FLEEING THE CRISIS – SPAIN – NEIL CONNERY
     
    In the decades following the Second World War, thousands of people left poverty in Spain to set up a new life in Venezuela, with the promise of riches from its vast oil reserves. But now the tables have turned. Venezuela’s socialist, nationalised economy is in tatters, following the crash in wholesale oil prices, and high government spending. Thousands of people have fled to Spain in the hope for a better life. Neil Connery travelled to Madrid to hear the stories of those who have fled, and considers the potential financial implications of some of those who caused the crisis heading for Europe.
     
    VIKINGS – DENMARK – RAGEH OMAAR
     
    In Denmark a growing fascination with all things Viking is on the up. Young men are growing big beards, getting Viking tattoos, even living in ‘castles’ they’ve built themselves. Rageh Omaar travels to Aarhus to attend a gathering and meet the people who chose to live and dress like Vikings for a couple of months a year to find out what’s really behind this movement. He also meets archaeologists who are uncovering new evidence which they think proves that Vikings were sophisticated statesman and diplomats, rather than simply bloodthirsty adventurers.

    Q & As
     
    Scarlett Moffatt
     
    What can viewers expect from Extra Camp this series? 
    It’s going to be so much fun and we’re going to be doing more trials. I know we always get Joe to do them so I promise Joel and I will do more.
    We’ve also got really good guests lined up this year, I’m so excited to meet them all.
     
    What is it like to work alongside Joel and Joe?
    It is amazing, they’re so funny. They’re really professional, as much as we have a laugh and a giggle, they’re really hard workers! We all love the show and I think what’s great is that we’ve all done the show ourselves and we’re proper massive fans of it, we just want the best! For those four weeks we just eat, sleep and breathe the Jungle.
     
    What is your favourite memory from your time in the Jungle? 
    I think when I did the Big Bush Bake Off trial with Carol Vorderman because that was amazing. I’m a massive fan of Countdown and I remember sitting there and watching her eating turkey knackers and thinking ‘this is my life now’, that’s got to be a highlight! 
     
    What was the hardest part about being in the Jungle?
    Just missing my family. I wanted to try and enjoy every second of it because I’m a massive fan of the show and whenever it got harder, I just thought ‘This is a dream and you have to see the positive in everything.’ I really missed my mam, dad and little sister. If something good happened I just wanted to pick up the phone and go ‘Mam, guess what I did today?’
     
    Which celebrity would you like to see enter the Jungle this year? 
    Jane McDonald. I love Jane McDonald…I’m not kidding you! I loved her on Loose Women, I love her doing the cruises. I think she would just sing in that hammock and it would make my life.
     
    What will you miss most while your filming in Australia? 
    I’ll miss a decent brew! Even though you can take your own tea bags over there it just tastes different, I think it’s the milk, the cows must produce milkier milk!
     
    What was your favourite moment from presenting last year’s Extra Camp on ITV2?
    When Stanley Johnson came on the show and he decided to show me the technique of jumping on to a Lilo. He just jumped on a Lilo on the studio floor and skidded into a table and I was like ‘Stanley, what are you doing?’ It was so funny. He was an amazing guest to have. 
     
    If you could do the Jungle again, would you?
    No, I wouldn’t! I just feel like my experience was amazing. If I was back in there with different people or if it was a different time of my life it might not be the same.
     
    ***
     
    Joel Dommett
     
    What can viewers expect from Extra Camp this series? 
    I think what they witnessed last year, plus a bit more, my main aim is to have fun!
     
    What is it like to work alongside Scarlett and Joe?
    They’re just the best! Honestly, we all just get on really well and we’re like a little family. Scarlett’s like my little sister and Joe is like the brother I never wanted but I’m forced to have!
     
    What is your favourite memory from your time in the Jungle?
    The fact that we all got on so well, it was a really nice year to be a part of.  I’m really proud of that because there has been so much friction in other years and the fact we didn’t really have any and got on is a good thing. When I look back on our year compared to other years, we’re very fun, we joked a lot and we had a lot of contact with each other, a lot of hugging and things like that. Things that you realise you miss from other years and I’m just really happy and proud that I was in that year and not a different year. I think if I was in an arguing year I would have melted down and wanted to leave immediately. 
     
    What was the hardest part about being in the Jungle? 
    The hardest part is definitely the hunger. I’m a person who loves to eat and as soon as that was taken away, you just think about food constantly and dream about food and you talk about food. 
     
    Which celebrity would you like to see enter the Jungle this year?
    They don’t tell us and I really love finding out with the rest of the nation. It’s a really fun part of it and I love when all the celebs names start to come out, it feels like it’s nearly Christmas. The first Christmas present before Christmas!
     
    What will you miss most while your filming in Australia? 
    I’ll miss my fiancé…a lot! I’m going to be away for quite a while, I think it’s the longest we’ve been apart. I mean it’s easier now because of the internet, you don’t need to send a letter and wait until it’s on the ship home. It could be worse, we could be in 1877!
     
    What was your favourite moment from presenting last year’s Extra Camp on ITV2?
    The moment that stood out for me was that they gave me my ending, by that I mean they gave me my bridge walk because the year I was in the Jungle I came 2nd, I didn’t get the bridge walk with the fireworks. If you come 2nd you’re the only person out of all the campmates who doesn’t get one so last year they gave it to me, they surprised me with it and it was honestly amazing! I had Medic Bob waiting for me at the end of the bridge and we had a big hug and it was so good, I loved it and it was such a nice moment. 
     
    If you could do the Jungle again, would you?
    The thing is, I really enjoyed it as a voyeur last year and I’ve enjoyed watching it while not being super hungry so it would be really hard to go back in!
     
    ***
     
    Joe Swash
     
    What can viewers expect from Extra Camp this series? 
    I think last year was a nice test of how it’s going to be this year. It was our first-year together and we all fell into a groove really quickly. We just want to pick up from where we left of, keep it really fun with the high tempo vibe of last year.
     
    What is it like to work alongside Scarlett and Joel?
    It’s really good! I’m like the original member of the Sugababes who doesn’t want to go but everyone changes around them. With these two, it felt right straight away. Joel is such a gentleman and so laid-back that you can’t really have a row with him and Scarlett’s the same, we all just get on so well. Also, Scarlett and Joel had that experience of the Jungle together so their bond is really tight. It’s a nice little threesome. 
     
    What is your favourite memory from your time in the Jungle?
    My favourite memory would have to be the first time I saw the Jungle. We had to do some trials the first day so I didn’t really get into camp until it was quite late. I remember walking towards camp and it was dark and you could see these little oil lamps everywhere and it just looked so beautiful.
     
    What was the hardest part about being in the Jungle? 
    There are so many different difficult parts about the Jungle. It tests you physically, but really mentally as well. 
     
    Which celebrity would you like to see enter the Jungle this year?
    I’ve always said I would have liked to have seen The Chuckle Brothers go in there but obviously this year, god rest his soul, one of them passed away. I love a blast from the past, someone you used to watch as a kid and someone you haven’t seen for ages. The year I went into the Jungle we had Timmy Mallet and I love things like that. I’m looking forward to seeing some old faces. 
     
    What will you miss most while your filming in Australia? 
    I’ll miss my family. This year is special because my little boy is going to come out for 10 days, which will make it so much easier for me.  Stacey and I will talk on the phone every day.  I’m really looking forward to my son being there.
     
    What was your favourite moment from presenting last year’s Extra Camp on ITV2?
    The moment when I had to wear the cats head and knocked the arch down, I’ve watched it back and this arch weighed about maybe 8 stone and it missed Scarlett’s head by about 3 inches. I remember watching it back thinking ‘oh my god, that could have worked out so differently.’ I was very lucky, but yeah that was my stand out moment. I’m a little bit clumsy. 
     
    If you could do the Jungle again, would you?
    It’s difficult as I don’t think I’m made of the same stuff I was back when I first went in. I was younger, innocent and fresh behind the ears. I would love to go in there and experience it again but you always have that worry it won’t be the same.

    Series overview
     
    Animal lover extraordinaire Paul O’Grady is back for a brand new eight-part series at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, ready to meet a whole new round of canine faces. Series 7 of the BAFTA-nominated programme will be filled with laughter and tears in equal measure, as Paul is faced with more abandoned and stray dogs, meets a few canine heroes and falls in love with some precious puppies along the way. 
     
    Episode 3
     
    In episode three Paul meets the pug-terrier cross who is a victim of a hit and run, a young bull dog who’s full of energy and needs entertaining and a spaniel puppy who won’t stop crying. 
     
    First up, Paul meets pug-terrier cross, Florence, who was hit by two cars which didn’t stop, leaving her with terrible injuries to her front and back legs. The vet tells Paul that Florence is facing amputation but that she needs at least three legs to get about, so there might not be anything they can do to save her. 
     
    As Florence is confined to her kennel, Paul visits her and hand feeds her some chicken.
     
    He says: “She’ll break your heart this one, but she’s a brave old thing. Oh god, I can’t bear it, but it’s touch and go with her because she’s an old girl.”
     
    Florence’s results come back and reveal that she has a broken pelvis and a fractured and dislocated hip. She also has a dislocated and fractured right shoulder. She can have her hip operated on, but she might have to have a front leg amputated. 
     
    Paul visits Florence after the operation to repair her hip. He says: “I went to the theatre last night and I was sitting there thinking of her having her operation. Well done Florence, I’m proud of you.”
     
    As Florence recuperates, Paul lays down in her kennel with her and listens to classical music before taking her out for a walk where they bump into a famous volunteer - Jennifer Saunders. 
     
    Jennifer tells Paul that she is a regular at Battersea. She says: “It’s addictive, isn’t it? I just constantly bring people down here to get them interested in having a rescue dog.”
     
    Florence goes back to her kennel to wait to see how she heals and if she will need an amputation. 
     
    Next Paul meets ten-month-old English Bulldog, Spike, who has been brought in because his owner was too ill to look after him. Paul explains that flat-faced breeds often really struggle to breath so Spike has had surgery to open his airways, which means he's on kennel rest and can't go outside.  Staff have taken Spike up to the Battersea offices to burn off some energy, but he soon causes trouble because of his love of feet and shoes. The best way to calm him down is by reading him a book, so Paul decides to give it a go.
     
    Nine-week-old spaniel pup George has been fostered by Battersea’s head of behaviour, Ali Taylor, after he was handed in for keeping his owners up all night with constant crying. 
     
    As Paul gives George a cuddle, Ali suggests he might want to take the pup home but he says: “There’s nine dogs at my house at the moment – I can’t go to the lav, they all stare at me, I’m in the shower, one’s behind me, you sit on the couch, they’re on top of you. Definitely no more. Although how can I resist this? O’Grady, stay strong.”
     
    Paul decides to persuade Jennifer Saunders to take George home, will he be successful?

    Peston
     
    Robert Peston brings his political magazine show to Wednesday nights to provide viewers with an fresh, intelligent and lively perspective on the big matters of the day in a brand new slot.
     
    Promising a stellar line-up of guests from across the political spectrum as well as cultural figures, Peston will feature major interviews with Westminster heavy hitters, topical guests and the very latest political gossip from inside the bubble.
     
    Co-presenter Anushka Asthana will help Peston fuel the conversation in the studio and online, with updates from social media taking in perspectives from viewers, experts and key-players throughout the programme.
     
    As the Autumn nights darken and the political temperature rises, with Brexit looming and politicians returning to work after a long hot summer off, Peston aims to shine a light on the stories you might have missed and to be at the heart of national debate.
     
    Peston says: “Britain is on the verge of making history. The stakes could not be higher, but so too are the uncertainties. What kind of Brexit will we have? Is Brexit certain? Can the divisions in the Conservative and Labour Parties be healed or will one or both parties split? How long will Theresa May remain as PM? How many Labour MPs will be thrown out by disgruntled members? Perhaps most important of all, can hope be restored that the UK will become a richer, fairer, less divided country?
     
    “Rarely has there been such a need to hold our political leaders and our elected representatives to account. Which is why I am so excited by the launch on Wednesdays of Peston, which will continue the tradition of Peston on Sunday with agenda-setting interviews, a digital conversation with the audience, cutting-edge graphical analysis, informality and fun.
     
    “And for those of you unaware why the show moved from Sunday to Wednesday, it was for no other reason than that the repeat of Peston on Sunday on Sunday nights was watched by twice as many people as the morning live show. So I and ITV thought we should convert it into a proper night time show. I could not be more pleased to be broadcasting after News at Ten on arguably the most important political day of the week."

    ITV’s award-winning international current affairs series continues, with powerful and thought-provoking stories from around the world.
     
    In this episode, ITV News Africa Correspondent John Ray returns to Zimbabwe one year on from the end of Mugabe’s reign to see just what has changed, meeting hopeful entrepreneurs and emboldened activists who fear the economic and political landscape has not become any brighter. Juliet Bremner travels to a small town in North Carolina to meet troubled ex-soldiers enrolled in a veteran treatment court, which gives veterans who have committed crimes a chance to reform with specialised treatment.

    ZIMBABWE AFTER MUGABE - JOHN RAY
     
    A year ago, Zimbabweans took to the streets to celebrate the end of Robert Mugabe’s long reign. Now the dust has settled on that moment in history, what are the hopes and fears of Zimbabwean people living in a post-Mugabe world? For some, the last year has been fruitful.

    VETERANS COURTS - JULIET BREMNER
     
    After an unprecedented intervention by the Ministry of Defence, calling on the UK government to act upon the shockingly high suicide rate of military veterans, correspondent Juliet Bremner explores a unique type of court in America. A product of 9/11, when subsequent military involvement led to veterans returning from places like Afghanistan and Iraq with serious mental health issues, these courts provide unique aid to those who leave the US forces suffering from PTSD and subsequently commit crimes, and shed light on the issues they face returning home.
     
    UNDERWATER FARMING – TOM CLARKE
     
    Could the future of farming be underwater? On Assignment visits ‘Nemo’s Garden’ in Italy, where they’re growing crops under the sea as part of a family-run research project which they believe could be the future of food. Sergio Gamberini, who runs the project along with his son, thinks this type of farming could work alongside existing methods of agriculture to meet future food demands. But it remains to be seen whether the project is feasible in terms of size, logistics and economics. Science Editor Tom Clarke goes to explore its potential.

    Episode 6
     
    The Weekender Boat Party sets sail on its final journey and newly single Jordan is determined to make the most of his freedom, leaving David to pick up the pieces yet again. 
     
    Although Jordan and Charlotte have only just split up, Jordan wastes no time in perusing Lydia, one of the new guests. Charlotte struggles to cope with his blatant flirting and decides that Lydia deserves to know what he is really like and interrupts them on a date, ending any chance Jordan had. 
     
    Imogen and Jackson both approach guest welfare with vigour but with very different results. Poor Jackson yet again comes on a little too strong, while Imogen manages to spark a romance with one boy guest and then the other. 
     
    El jefe, David is left picking up Charlotte and ensuring the last set of guests have a great time. But as the final set of guests leave, El Grande Jefe summons David back to Ibiza, leaving Imogen in charge of the boat.
