Barry 2

Desperate to leave his violent past behind in favour of his newfound passion, Barry is attempting to untangle himself from the world of contract killing and fully immerse himself in acting.

But getting out is messy.

While Barry has eliminated many of the external factors that pushed him towards violence, he soon discovers they weren't the only forces at play.

What is it about his own psyche that led him to become a killer in the first place?

As Season 2 opens, Barry struggles to focus exclusively on the theater and his girlfriend and classmate Sally, hoping against hope to rid himself of the ties that bind him to the Chechen mob group now led by Noho Hank, who ascended to the top job after Barry whacked his boss last season.

Although he's persuaded grieving acting coach Gene Cousineau to return to class, Barry is incapable of extricating himself from a violent criminal triangle involving the Chechen, Bolivian and Burmese underworlds - not to mention some deeply suspicious LA detectives.

Meanwhile, on the Midwest horizon looms Monroe Fuches, Barry's erstwhile boss, who has found it exceedingly difficult to hire a replacement in Cleveland as capable as his onetime ace assassin.

Using her unparalleled list of contacts, Malton will get access to case files and revisit the investigations with the police, detectives, and other professionals who experienced them first hand.

Beat Shazam 2

Jamie Foxx returns as host and executive producer for Season 2 and actress, model and writer Corinne Foxx - his daughter - joins the show as the new deejay.

Beat Shazam is an interactive game show in which teams of two race against the clock and each other as they attempt to identify the biggest hit songs of all time.

In the end, the team with the highest score will outlast the competition and go against Shazam, the song identification app, for the chance to win up to 1-million dollars.

In each round, Foxx presents songs from various musical genre categories, ranging from '80s Favorites to Beyoncé Hits.

Teams hear a song and try to identify its correct title before all the other teams.

As the rounds progress, quicker pairs continue building their banks, while players with the lowest dollar amount are eliminated until only one team remains.

That team plays man-versus-machine and attempts to Beat Shazam.

Long Lost Family 9

Presented by Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell, Long Lost Family offers a last chance for people who are desperate to find long lost relatives.

The series helps a handful of people, some of whom have been searching in vain for many years, find the family members they are desperately seeking.

It explores the background and context of each family's estrangement, and tracks the detective work and often complex and emotional process of finding each lost relative before they are reunited.

With the help and support of Davina and Nicky, each relative is guided and supported through the process of tracing the member of their family they have been desperately seeking, in some cases for most of their lives.

Long Lost Family reveals the background to each case, the social context of each case, and reasons why these estrangements occurred.

In the Season 9 premiere: Christine Rose was born in Dewsbury, Yorkshire and is now 67. At the age of four, she was separated from her sisters in extremely dramatic circumstances.

The three young girls were taken from their mother by social services during the night and Christine was sent to one children's home and her sisters were sent to another.

Christine never saw her mother or sisters again and is desperate to find them.

She was eventually adopted but remained haunted by the absence of her sisters and began to question why the family were torn apart.

After their difficult start in life, she's always wanted to know what happened to her sisters and whether they stayed together.
