The Elon Musk Show

The Elon Musk Show gets to the heart of who Elon Musk really is, by interviewing the people that know him best.

Family members, employees, close friends and enemies tell the intimate story of Musk's incredible journey to become the world's richest man.

Using extensive archive footage taken throughout his life, from South Africa to Silicon Valley, the series analyses the key moments in Elon's career, from his first tech start-ups through to Tesla and SpaceX.

In 1995, at the start of the Silicon Valley tech boom, Elon Musk is a geeky young South African battling to make his fortune, while sleeping on the floor of his office and washing at the local YMCA.

In San Francisco Elon begins his ascendency, using his genius to build and sell a major new internet technology business.

He becomes a multi-millionaire at the age of just 28.

Then he falls in love with glamorous up-and-coming British actress, Talulah Riley.

But just as he's enjoying newfound success, Elon faces his first major challenge...

Beachside Brawl 2

Antonia Lofaso brings the competition to the sand on the return of Beachside Brawl for the ultimate beach bite showdown to determine which coast does summer food best.

The competition kicks off as the foremost cooks from the East and West coasts face-off in challenges designed to prove that their coast does it best.

Leading the teams of five professional cooks are East coast chef Eric Adjepong and West Coast chef Brian Malarkey.

Both captains will mentor and cook alongside their teams throughout the competition.

Culinary superstars Alex Guarnaschelli and Guy Fieri will judge the final round and will crown one team member the "Best of the Beach" earning a dream beach getaway worth up to $25,000.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Pier Favorites": Antonia challenges the teams to create some of the most iconic summer food ever - pier favourites - while playing classic boardwalk games like balloon pop and softball toss.

But it's not all fun in the sun, as each game reveals a twist including ingredients they must use or avoid using in their final dish.

Throughout the seven-week competition, each challenge features the most mouthwatering dishes from the coasts, from fresh west coast fish tacos to buttery east coast lobster rolls, and more.

The teams will have to prove they are coastal cuisine masters in themed challenges including boardwalk guilty pleasures, grilled feasts, and surf and turf.

Joining Antonia each week will be a rotating guest judge, including Nate Appleman, Guy Fieri, Alex Guarnaschelli, Stephanie Izard, Troy Johnson, Mei Lin, Jeremy McBryde, Jasmine Roth, Joe Sasto Jet Tila, and Claudette Zepeda.

Only one team member will be able to take the heat and win bragging rights and the ultimate beach getaway.

Escape to the Chateau 8

Escape to the Chateau is a renovation show - a heartwarming series full of joy, creativity and ingenuity, all set in the glorious surroundings of a fairytale castle.

Fronted by hosts Dick and Angel Strawbridge, it is the perfect chance to escape into their charming world.

Dick and Angel return in a new season with more DIY, renovation, craft and family adventures on the grandest of scales.

As ever, the Chateau continues to share its secrets with some incredible new discoveries adding to the rich history of the Strawbridge's fairytale home.

With weddings and events on hold for the second year, Dick and Angel bite the bullet and make the big decision to tackle the exterior of the Chateau.

The roof and outside walls are their biggest project to date and the Chateau quickly becomes a building site.

In the Season 8 premiere, "Gardening & the Coach House": It's winter and there's plenty on Dick and Angel's never-ending to-do list, starting with transforming the 150-year-old granary store in the original coach house into a luxurious bedroom suite.

Dick and Angel convert the old carriage house into a stylish, modern country home for Angel's parents.

Also, Angel commissions a special neon sign for the occasion; and Dick and Steve upcycle barn doors for the mezzanine level.
