Kim's Convenience 2

While running a convenience store in Toronto, members of a Korean-Canadian family deal with customers, each other and the evolving world around them.

Kim's Convenience is the funny, heartfelt story of The Kims, a Korean-Canadian family, running a convenience store in downtown Toronto.

Mr. and Mrs. Kim ('Appa' and 'Umma') immigrated to Toronto in the '80s to set up shop near Regent Park and had two kids, Jung and Janet who are now young adults.

However, when Jung was 16, he and Appa had a major falling out involving a physical fight, stolen money and Jung leaving home.

Father and son have been estranged since.

Now, Appa and Umma run the store along with Janet who is studying photography at art school.

Meanwhile Jung, who secretly stays in contact with Umma and Janet, is trying to turn his life around and recently landed a job at a car rental agency.

The world of Kim's Convenience is real, colourful and urban - a diverse landscape of people and places and at the heart is the Kim family and their store.

While the family continues to work and live, finding humour in the everyday tasks of running the store, they long for the day when the rift between Appa and Jung is mended and the family is whole once again.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Janet's Roommate": When Janet's plan to move out hits a snag, Appa and Umma encourage her to stay home.

Kimchee tries to convince Jung that now is the time to make a move on Shannon.

'n Ster vir Kersfees

This is not your average Christmas special, it's a Christmas adventure.

Compassion and gratitude are the driving forces of this Christmas Tale.

It's a show where dreams come true... in a time we all need to be reminded of that possibility.

The three Wise Ones (Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp, Robbie Kruse and Stella, whose real name is Deoudone van der Merwe), are the heroes, in noble pursuit of true Christmas spirit.

They are at the heart of the storyline, leading us from star to star and song to song as they travel through the country visiting people and places.

Oh, and Solomon Cupido keeps showing up...

Jamie and Jimmy's Festive Feast 2020

Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Doherty kick start the New Year celebrations with a special edition of Friday Night Feast.

And, as we all need a treat at the end of this year, they're joined by not one but two celebrity guests to get the party going...

Singer-songwriter Sam Smith and PE-teacher-to-the-nation Joe Wicks join Jamie and Jimmy to help prepare a range of delicious dishes, perfect to get us in the mood for the New Year.

Jamie kicks things off with a mouth-watering, Italian-inspired pork and crispy double crackling, laid on a bed of beautiful veg and creamy beans and topped with a tangy herb salsa.

If roast pork could turn over a new leaf for its New Year resolution this would be it, and the perfect antidote to the umpteen Christmas dinners we've been eating.

Jamie takes Sam Smith to Mexico via Scotland as he tracks down Sam's favourite food memory from the Isle of Eriskay in the Outer Hebrides.

Together they make delicious haggis tacos complete with homemade corn tortillas, red onion pickle, salsa and avocado - the ideal treat for Hogmanay.

And if we can't go to the pub then Jimmy brings the pub to us, mixing up a sparkling mojito bubbling with champagne and his own version of the pub classic, scampi and chips.

Also taking his turn to work up a sweat in the kitchen is Joe Wicks who, despite his Italian heritage, has never made pasta.

So he teams up with Jamie for the ultimate pasta masterclass as they feast on ricotta and prosciutto ravioli dressed in lemon butter.

That's your new year's resolution sorted.
