Rebuilding Paradise

On the morning of 8 November, 2018, a devastating firestorm engulfed the picturesque city of Paradise, California.

By the time the Camp Fire was extinguished it had killed 85 people, displaced 50,000 residents and destroyed 95 percent of local structures.

It was the deadliest US fire in 100 years — and the worst ever in California's history.

Rebuilding Paradise, from Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard, is a story of resilience in the face of tragedy, as a community ravaged by disaster comes together to recover what was lost and begin the important task of rebuilding.

Dr. 90210 7

The plastic surgery reality show returns after 12 years off air with a new cast.

Plastic surgery has long been a male-dominated field, with only 15 percent of surgeons being female, but in Beverly Hills there is a new squad of women redefining age-old beauty standards.

Dr. Cat Begovic, Dr. Kelly Killeen, Dr. Michelle Lee and Dr. Suzanne Quardt are some of the top female surgeons in the US and are breaking down barriers in the world's most famous zip code.

From excess skin removal, third breast extraction and a double mastectomy, to facial cysts and post childbirth vaginal rejuvenations, these four doctors use their insight, skill and bedside manner to guide patients from consultations to surgery and recovery, proving a woman's touch can go beyond skin deep.

In the series premiere, "Snip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah": Dr. Killeen performs a breast reduction on a patient with size M breasts.

Also, a transgender model wants Dr. Lee to make her nose look more feminine and former Pussycat Doll Jessi Peralta seeks Dr. Cat's help to repair her torn labia.

Wild Uganda: Perils of Paradise

The heart of Uganda is a wonderland for wildlife, but perils await even in paradise.

But the country's savannah, rain forests, swamps and mountains are still a dangerous paradise, whether you're a gorilla, an elephant, a Uganda Kob or a banded mongoose.
