7 Little Johnstons 7

When the pandemic started, it brought all the Johnstons back together under one roof, but now the older children are anxious to break out on their own.

We last saw Trent and Amber delivering an ultimatum to Jonah: he needed to find his own place within three months.

Now, fresh off of celebrating his 21st birthday, Jonah is juggling the hunt for a new place to live, a job search and a long-distance relationship.

Meanwhile, rising tensions between Anna and Amber have resulted in Anna looking to move out as well.

Neither of them is sure how to navigate their strained relationship, and it's affecting the other Johnstons: it's one of the primary reasons Elizabeth is also ready to find her own place.

With so many changes on the horizon for the family, each Johnston is faced with the realities of growing up.

All the while, Trent and Amber fight to keep their family as tight-knit as they've always been - even if they don't all live in the same house.

In the Season 7 premiere, "Holiday Hangover": Jonah is the first Johnston to turn 21, and it's Christmas time in the household.

While Trent and Amber try to make the holiday merry, the adult kids living at home is causing tension in the family.

The Princes and The Press

Amol Rajan explores the years following the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the positive media reaction to the emergence of a new generation of royals.

The film charts the years leading up to and including the engagement and marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Providing context for the princes' relationship with the media, the film examines some of the illegal activities engaged in by some newspapers in the late 1990s and early 2000s, including hacking and 'blagging', and how these techniques were used to target members of the royal family and their associates.

In Part 2, Amol examines the period from 2018 to 2021, a tumultuous time for the royals that includes the birth of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and the royal tours of the Sussexes and the Cambridges.

He also looks at the circumstances surrounding the Sussexes' decision to step down from their senior royal roles, explores the legal cases brought by the couple against some newspaper groups from 2019 onwards, and considers the impact Princess Diana’s experiences with the press and broadcasters had on her sons.
