From the Heart with Jenny Morris

South African celebrity chef Jenny Morris strongly believes in the spirit of "Ubuntu" - meaning "the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity."

And for Jenny, that translates to delicious meals.

This sumptuous series captures Jenny's belief that nothing brings people together better than food.

In each episode she serves back to the community as a friend, wife and mum, preparing menus for 10 different themes.

Whatever the meal, Jenny's quirky sense of humour always shines as she prepares and serves global recipes sprinkled with her own delicious version of authentic African flavour.

War of the Worlds

Set in Edwardian England, this new adaptation of H.G. Wells' seminal tale - the first alien invasion story in literature - follows George (Rafe Spall) and his partner Amy (Eleanor Tomlinson) as they attempt to defy society and start a life together.

After a huge meteor strikes Horsell Common in Surrey, England, the inhabitants of Earth face a vicious attack by an unknown alien race.

Amidst the chaos, George leaves his loveless marriage in the hope of starting a new life with Amy, despite the condemnation of the community around them.

But George and Amy, alongside every other human on the planet, soon find themselves fighting for their survival against a ruthless enemy beyond their comprehension - an enemy determined to destroy humanity and conquer the planet.

Adapted by Peter Harness, this visceral thriller delivers a riveting and atmospheric collision of science fiction, period drama and horror, bringing one of literature's most notorious foes vividly to life.

Rupert Graves is Frederick, George's elder brother, and Robert Carlyle plays Ogilvy, an astronomer and scientist.
