Set 400 years in the future, the series follows The U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship, and its crew, both human and alien, who face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the problems of everyday life.

In Season 2, Ed and Kelly's relationship will take a new turn, while the ship's crew will meet never-before-seen aliens, face old adversaries the Krill, make first contact with a new civilisation and revisit the planet Moclus.

Body Bizarre 5

Unearthing the accounts of new and astonishing medical conditions – many of which have left the medical world baffled – this series follows patients on their journeys as they seek treatment.

These individuals face great challenges in their lives every day from the stigma of their condition which may leave them disfigured, to the pain and discomfort they must endure.

In India, Arpit was born with his heart on the outside of his rib cage; in Mexico, Adrian has a tumour the size of a basketball on the side of his face; in America, Janice has a giant leg that has grown out of proportion to the rest of her body.

These are just some of the stories of bravery that are rarely seen and testing medical expertise to the very limits, in a series that uncovers the truth behind the headlines.
