Linda dreams of a life of adventure, while Fanny is more concerned with stability after being abandoned by her mother. When a glamorous local aristocrat invites a charming stranger to a ball, Linda is instantly smitten, but Fanny’s disapproval threatens to tear the inseparable friends apart.

The Pursuit of Love follows the travails of the Radlett family, focusing on Linda, the most beautiful and wayward Radlett daughter, who falls first for a stuffy Tory politician, then an ardent Communist, and finally a French duke named Fabrice, and her cousin Fanny Logan. Consumed by a desire for love and marriage, the two women are on the hunt for the ideal lover. Their friendship will be put to the test as Fanny settles for a steady life and Linda decides to follow her heart, to increasingly wild and outrageous places.

Gods of Snooker: Snookered / BBC Two 9 May 2021

Gods of Snooker: Snookered

The sport’s rise to prominence, beginning by examining how Alex `Hurricane” Higgins upset the snooker establishment to help transform a game played in the backrooms of working men’s clubs into a TV ratings hit. Interest in the sport had been growing thanks to the new possibilities of colour broadcasting, and in particular the weekly snooker show Pot Black, but it was the antics of the unpredictable Ulstersman that took the game stratospheric.

For a remarkable period in the 1980s, sporting superstardom was embodied by a select group of well-dressed men in tight-fitting suits – utterly poised, chasing after multi-coloured balls on a green table. Snooker had landed on our screens and captivated an audience of millions.

In this series, snooker’s golden age will be brought back to life by those at the very heart of the story – Jimmy White, Steve Davis, Dennis Taylor, Stephen Hendry, Ray Reardon, Barry Hearn and more – sporting heroes from working-class backgrounds who quickly became household names.

Mixing sporting prowess with unapologetic excess, this new generation of snooker players managed to take the game out from the dark corners of working men’s clubs into the bright lights of a money-spinning, sporting soap-opera.

This is a story of a magical era; when an entire nation could be united by a fascination with snooker and where its leading players became unlikely superstars.

SAS: Who Dares Wins: Episode 1

The 21 new recruits for the sixth series face an intense start when the train they are travelling on is the subject of a fake hijack to test the passengers’ reactions. The trainees are then pitted them against each other in a race up a 4000ft mountain, followed by a 100ft abseil off an oil rig, as the team of instructors look for people who can handle anything that is thrown at them.

Selection for the SAS is one of the world’s toughest job interviews and physical fitness is only the starting point. What’s really being tested is psychological resilience and character as candidates undergo sleep deprivation, interrogation and a series of increasingly complex mind games. In this programme, five ex-special forces soldiers re-create tasks from the SAS’s secret selection process, putting 30 civilian men through the ultimate test of their physical and – more importantly – their psychological resilience.
