ALAN TITCHMARSH: SPRING INTO SUMMER Monday, ITV, regions vary
This week, chef Ainsley Harriott shows off his green-fingered expertise. No doubt he’s grown a few ‘Polly Peppers’ in his own horticultural haven – you never know, he may even bring some along when he meets up with Alan Titchmarsh in deepest Hampshire.
Ainsley is promising to add a Mediterranean flavour to the proceedings, which also include tips on tidying up the garden with
horticulturalist David Domoney. Plus, there’s an insight into the work carried out by search and rescue dogs during the summer months.
DOCTORS OF WAR: SAVING LIVES Tuesday, Channel 5, 10pm
This fascinating documentary brings us a week in the life of a hospital in war-torn South Sudan, which is run by local staff and supported by international medics and UK doctors flown in by a humanitarian charity.
The staff have plenty of
expertise, but they are working under extreme pressures and with limited resources as they deal with patients including a group of boys who were critically injured after playing with a grenade, a man who was shot in the head and a young girl with multiple knife wounds.
FOR THE LOVE OF DOGS Wednesday, ITV, 8pm
Paul helps staff at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in London train a lively beagle cross pup, and spends the day with a bichon who, like many pets during lockdown, has got used to living in a busy home.
The presenter also helps a shellshocked old Staffy who was left tied to the gates.
Finally, Paul assists the staff as they battle to contain a dangerous outbreak of parvo virus. This highly infectious and potentially fatal disease attacks cells in a dog’s intestines and stops them from being able to absorb vital nutrients.
