Channel: M-Net (DStv 101)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Drama


Set in the halls of Westminster, the series follows Prime Minister Robert Sutherland (Robert Carlyle) and his Chief of Staff Anna Marshall (Victoria Hamilton) as they try to deal with a national emergency.

The pair must bear attacks from their political opponents, face family pressures and lead the COBRA committee, a team of experts and politicians, to ensure the nation's safety.

COBRA is an action-packed political drama and a human story of a nation and its leaders in crisis - a tale that is increasingly relevant to the world we live in today.

On the brink of a geomagnetic solar storm, a team comprised of Britain's leading experts, crisis contingency planners and the most senior politicians assemble under the name COBRA (taken from its meeting place in Whitehall's Cabinet Office Briefing Room A) to guide the country through turbulent times.

The high-stakes series follows the members of this team as they take on the disaster; their missteps, political conflicts, personal drama, friendships and wit play out against the backdrop of an unfolding national crisis.

Prime Minister Robert Sutherland must navigate the crisis while attempting to maintain control of his cabinet in slippery political circumstances.

Accompanied by Anna Marshall - his brilliant and quick-thinking chief of staff and longtime friend - Sutherland braces for the fallout of a major national disaster, as well as complications in his personal life that threaten his political standing.

Also on the COBRA team is Fraser Walker, one of the country's leading crisis contingency planners, who is not as adept at overcoming problems in his personal life as he is in his political life.

The most argumentative and calculating member of the team, Home Secretary Archie Glover-Morgan, looks to seize any opportunity for more power that presents itself.

With Charlie's deft detective work and Rex's keen canine senses, this crime-fighting pair is unstoppable.

In the Season 6 premiere, "Ghost Ship": When a local whale watching boat mysteriously returns to harbour without its passengers, Charlie and Rex must race against time to find the missing tourists.

Blue Lights

Blue Lights

Blue Lights follows three rookie police officers working in Belfast, a uniquely dangerous place to be a police officer.

Grace, a mother of a teenage boy, has made the decision in her 40s to leave her steady job as a social worker to join the Police Service of Northern Ireland.

Having previously worked in social care she straddles a fine line between the personal and professional.

It's the biggest gamble of her life, and just a few weeks into the job, she's making so many mistakes that her decision no longer looks like a winning bet.

Her fellow rookies are Annie, who struggles with the fact that her chosen path may mean having to leave everything she's ever known behind; and Tommy, who is desperate to prove himself, despite being disastrously inept at the practical side of frontline response policing.

All three are new police officers in their probation period with the PSNI, the odds are at least one of them isn't going to last.

The pressure is immense, but if they succumb to it, they won't survive.

Often the rookie officers don't know the extent of the peril they are in, or who they can trust.

What's it like to have to hide your job from neighbours, friends and even family?

How do you distinguish between who needs your help and who wants you dead simply because of the uniform you wear?

In the series premiere, "The Code": PSNI probationer Grace promises to help Angela, whose son has fallen in with a notorious gang.

However, undercover agents are watching.
