World From Above
Sunday, 6pm, History Entering its fourth season, this remarkable program about seeing landscapes and landmarks from above has come down to earth. In previous seasons there has been terrific variety in the altitude from which scenes are filmed, from space to just a few metres above the roofline. This debut episode begins with a rather prosaic journey along the Thames, from the Tilbury fort to Westminster. As in Dan Snow’s Norman Walks, the narrator gets a bit preachy and can’t help but do the guided tour thing, explaining the history of each landmark and bridge we sail above. Stick around until the end of the half-hour episode, though, for an enchanting night-time flyover of the route we have just charted in daylight. What a marvel London is by night. unintended consequences. Can Ike’s son Stevie (Steven Strait) take over the reins of the luxury hotel while his dad is in the pen? And what of his blistering affair with Mrs Diamond? A truly satisfying ensemble drama with great writing and a superb cast, Magic City is sexy, fast moving and terrifically engaging. (Chris Bauer) has fast growing babies to take care of while Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) has offspring issues of his own.
