Armed with mysterious powers and a legendary sword, young rebel Nimue joins forces with charming mercenary Arthur on a mission to save her people.

Based on the upcoming book of the same name, Cursed is a re-imagining of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake.

After her mother's death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a young mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword.

Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther.

Cursed is a coming-of-age story with themes familiar to our own time: the obliteration of the natural world, religious zeal and oppression, senseless war and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.

Hawaii Life 10

Families search for their ideal homes in Hawaii – from the affordable to the luxury.

Follow the Hawaii Life real estate brokers as they help the lucky ones turn their dreams into reality, whether on the smaller islands of Maui, Kauai or Oahu or on the Big Island itself.

Most people only dream of finding a piece of paradise in Hawaii, but in this series, the Hawaii Life real estate brokers aim to make that dream a reality for anyone.

From Oahu to Kauai, to Maui and The Big Island, there are properties to suit any lifestyle from ultra-affordable, to totally outrageous.

It's sunny skies all round as everyday families get one step closer to turning their fantasy of a Hawaii life into reality, from a California couple seeking a home by the harbour to a couple seeking an open-concept property in their Hawaiian hometown.

Will they find the perfect oasis to fit their budget and requirements?

In the Season 10 premiere, "Dreams Come True in Maui": After 25 years of dreaming, a California couple is finally ready to move to the sandy beaches of Maui.

They both love the Lahaina area and would love to own a boat to put in the harbour.

With the help of a local agent, they're checking out all the best Hawaiian homes where they can make a life together in paradise.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Oahu's Aloha Spirit": A recently married Puerto Rico couple misses the aloha spirit of their Hawaiian hometown.

They quickly jump at the opportunity to move back home to Oahu and buy their first house together.

With the help of their agent, the young couple is looking for an open-concept home on the windward side of the island.

Shark vs. Whale

A routine drone survey turns deadly when Ryan Johnson, a marine biologist based in South Africa, films a humpback whale being attacked and strategically drowned by a great white shark.

The never-before-seen behaviour causes a complete perspective shift on a creature Johnson has spent his life studying.

To make sense of the event, he follows humpback whales on their migration, mapping places that may make them vulnerable, and takes a new look at great white sharks to discover how and why they become whale killers.
