Set in the high-pressured world of bomb disposal, Trigger Point stars Vicky McClure (Line of Duty) and Adrian Lester (Hustle) as frontline officers who must risk their lives during a terrorist campaign in the heart of London.

When a terrorist campaign threatens the capital over one summer, the Expos are at the forefront of urgent efforts to find out who is behind the bombings before fatalities escalate.

Under extreme pressure and searching for answers, Lana becomes suspicious that the bomber is premeditatedly targeting her unit - but how does she prove it and discover the bomber's real identity?

In the series premiere: In the middle of a summer heatwave, Explosives Officers (EXPO) Lana Washington and Joel Nutkins are called out to a Metropolitan Police counterterrorism operation at a London housing estate to investigate a potential bomb factory and a suspected bomb maker, Andy Phelan.

There is no sign of the bomb maker, but his wife and young daughter have been restrained and his wife forced to call in the bomb threat.

She is now fearful for her husband's safety.

The assailants broke in using Phelan's keys, which are now missing, leading to a race against time to locate Phelan and his vehicle.

Washington and Nutkins successfully defuse an improvised explosive device, but its complexity suggests they're dealing with sophisticated terrorists.

Until the suspect is located and detained, EXPO remain on high alert.

As the police evacuate residents from the estate, EXPO find evidence of an even deadlier terrorist threat and must work against the clock to save as many lives as possible.

Moonshiners: American Spirit

In this spinoff series, the Moonshiners venture out on a fun-filled search for the legendary lost liquors of America's past... and learn a thing or two about our nation's history along the way.

They're on a mission to keep American spirits alive and will leave no liquor (or history lesson) behind.

Each week, Moonshiners Tim and Howard will travel across the US to rediscover legendary liquors that have been lost to time.

Unearthing dusty bottles and hidden recipes, they'll rebuild ancient pot stills with fellow Moonshiner, Tickle, and recreate secret mash bills in a bold attempt to taste American spirits that would otherwise be lost to history.

With each episode focused on a single libation - from Benjamin Franklin's liquor in Philly to Franklin Roosevelt's secret moonshine in Georgia - together the Moonshiners will learn about the origins of each spirit and its place in the history books.

This is history like you've never... tasted.

In the series premiere, "FDR's Outlaw Booze": When Tim and Howard head to FDR's summer home in Georgia, they uncover a Prohibition-era mystery that could have triggered a presidential scandal.

Genre: Home Improvement, Reality Makeover, Reality

Bargain Block 2

Bargain Block follows home renovation experts and partners Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas on their journey to restore Detroit's iconic American neighbourhoods one house at a time.

With sound advice and support from their friend - lifetime Detroit resident and real estate expert Shea Hicks-Whitfield, who is expecting her first child - Keith and Evan will buy multiple rundown and abandoned houses on a single block, take them down to the studs, and create affordable, stylish and fully furnished starter homes that are ideal for first-time homebuyers.

Now settled in the Motor City, the couple, who have renovated and purchased their own home and opened a new retail store and workshop, will infuse every property with a functional layout, artful design and beautiful repurposed furniture.

The end result is incredible transformations of dilapidated homes that are an inspiration to the entire neighbourhood.

To tackle the next round of renovations on the block, Keith and Evan will buy two ramshackle neighbouring houses that both present extensive water damage and sky-high trash heaps.

Once the properties are restored, the duo will give them an elevated design, one with a Hamptons beach cottage vibe and the other with a swanky, moody art deco style.
