Exposed: Naked Crimes

Get up close and personal with the most exposed offenders ever caught on camera.

Witnesses and police share the inside stories of dangerous crimes committed totally naked.

From burglaries in the buff to nude DUIs, these lawbreakers let it all hang out.

In the series premiere, "Fight or Flight": A chilling home invasion, a pizzeria robbery, an early morning police pursuit and a normal drive to work interrupted by a violent rampage all share the commonality of a completely naked suspect.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Bandits and Buns": An armed stand-off with police, a joyride in a stolen ATV, a bold break-in, and a high-speed chase in a stolen truck - four brazen acts that shock bystanders even more after cameras reveal that the suspects are doing it all in the nude.

Death and Other Details

Set amidst the glamor of the global elite, Death and Other Details centres on the brilliant and restless Imogene Scott (Violett Beane), who finds herself in the wrong place/wrong time (okay, it was kinda her fault) and becomes the prime suspect in a locked room murder mystery.

The setting? A lavishly restored Mediterranean ocean liner.

Suspects? Every pampered guest and every exhausted crew member.

The problem? To prove her innocence, she must partner with a man she despises - Rufus Cotesworth (Mandy Patinkin), the world's greatest detective.

Nadiya's Everyday Baking

Who says you can't bake every day?

From daily treats to spectacular celebrations, Nadiya Hussain brings the heart and soul of baking to every occasion.

In the series premiere, "Afternoon Tea": Nadiya starts the series with her take on the quintessentially British afternoon tea.

Every recipe will offer an exciting twist on an old-school classic that's so easy it could be whipped up every day of the week.

Inspired by a lockdown social media craze, a traditional coffee cake is transformed by a deliciously light dalgona coffee cream topping – the method is ingenious, as it doesn't actually contain any cream.

Nadiya then shares her pretty-as-a-picture meringue lollipops, which have a colourfully-striped crisp shell and a raspberry-infused white chocolate centre.

Next, Nadiya knocks up cheesecake like you've never seen before with her super indulgent but sensationally moreish butterscotch cheesecake bars.

Puff pastry, butterscotch cream and layers of crumbly biscuit create an epic teatime treat.

Finally, Nadiya gives the most famous of afternoon teas a Bengali makeover, offering up her cream tea in pudding form.

With cardamom-infused scones that crown a rose, rhubarb and strawberry jam bake adorned with pistachios and served with lashings of clotted cream, this is a cream tea with a difference.

Across the series, Nadiya also celebrates bakers from across Britain, shining a light on their favourite everyday bakes.

In this episode, award-winning allergy-conscious baker Mina Said-Allsopp shares her secret to a gluten-free chocolate sourdough - just one of the superb recipes born out of her mission to bring delicious sweet and savoury bakes to the gluten intolerant.

Australia in Colour 2

When colour is applied to the black and white footage of Australia's film archives, the footage comes to life in a way never seen before, inspiring a new look at Australian history.

This series carefully curates familiar footage, touching home movies and never-before-seen archival material to chart how Australia developed as a nation.

From the oldest surviving footage captured in Australia in 1896 in Sydney's Prince Alfred Park, to the beginning of colour television in the mid 1970s, each sequence is lovingly restored and colourised.

The effect is remarkable, bringing to light history that is both iconic and deeply personal.

Back for a second season, this treasure trove of the best available film from the 20th Century digs into Australia's social, political and economic history.

Footage has been fetched from the archive, cleaned and compiled to paint a vivid picture that makes sense of modern Australia.

After painstaking research, glorious colour has been added, making the past visible in colour for the first time.

It means this exploration of Australia pulsates with life, energy and meaning.

Across the four episodes in this new season, we'll dig deep into Family, Australians at Play, Crime and Punishment and Australian Made.
