In the Dark

Murphy is a hard-living, hard-drinking, disaffected 20-something with a penchant for casual sex. She also happens to be blind.

She spends the majority of her time in a one block radius that includes her apartment, a local bar and a convenience store where she buys tampons and candy bars.

Murphy lives with her roommate Jess and her guide dog Pretzel, whom she reluctantly has come to love.

Her closest friend is a teenager named Tyson who she befriends after he saved her from a violent mugging.

But her life comes crashing down when she stumbles upon what she's sure is his lifeless body in the alley outside her apartment.

By the time the police arrive, there is no body to be found, leaving everyone around Murphy to question her.

But Murphy is determined to find the truth, which opens up her world far beyond the comforts of her block.

Inside the Factory 5

With exclusive access to some of the world's biggest and busiest factories – some opening their doors to TV cameras for the very first time – this behind-the-scenes documentary series reveals the secrets of consumer goods.

MasterChef's Gregg Wallace discovers the astonishing machinery and processes that allow these supersized factories to produce the food and goods we buy.

Gregg is back with co-host Cherry Healy to takes his love of food back to the source – the factories that feed us – to find out how some of our favourite foods get made in.

In each episode, Gregg goes behind-the-scenes at some of the largest factories in Europe, while Cherry investigates the science and innovation behind each product.

In the Season 5 premiere: Gregg is in Staffordshire at an enormous Cherry Bakewell factory, where they produce 250,000 of the little tarts a day.

Cherry is learning how to swerve a soggy pastry bottom when baking pies and tarts at home, and Historian Ruth Goodman is sniffing out the origins of one of the Cherry Bakewell's key ingredients, frangipane.
