Saturday 27th July, 9pm
Here's another chance for viewers to enjoy this popular and chaotic look at the maverick band of chocolatiers as they make cakes for the stars in this latest series. 

In this episode, Hollywood legend Whoopi Goldberg sets them an epic challenge to build a sky scraper of a cake for a glittering fundraising event in aid of New York mayoral candidate Christine Quinn. With just four days to pull it off, Christine, Christine and Dave fly to New York to meet Whoopi, and from a hired kitchen in Harlem they attempt to work their magic to create a cake that reflects the iconic skyline of the city that never sleeps – complete with the Statue of Liberty turned into Christine Quinn!  Chaos in the kitchen ensues as the two Christines take charge of the baking with disastrous results, and Dave and his designs are driven to breaking point as he battles with unfamiliar American chocolate.

With Whoopi Goldberg popping in to check on progress and adding a few extra requests, it’s a race to finish and deliver their spectacular ode to New York to her home on time. With the cake taking pride of place, they can finally find out what Whoopi and her prestigious guests make of their unique take on Manhattan.  


TV: Castle

ALIBI HD (Sky 132 / 229, Virgin 130 HD: 131)

UK Premiere - Series continues
Wednesday 31st July, 9pm
S5 E20/24. The Fast And The Furriest
A young woman is dumped at the hospital, but later dies from her wounds. Her injuries were seemingly caused by some kind of clawed animal. Later, Castle and Beckett (Stana Katic) visit the scene where the victim was attacked and Castle (Nathan Fillion) finds giant footprints close by.

Castle to Beckett:
"Her wounds; this blood; these footprints - it all adds up to one thing... she was killed by Bigfoot.”

Beckett is not convinced that a mythical giant beast is the culprit. She’s more interested in a one-armed Australian adventurer, the ex-boyfriend of the victim’s roommate who had also been murdered and an employee of the ape sanctuary the victim worked at.

While Castle and Beckett head into the forest in search of evidence, Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Heurtas) get new leads which takes the cops to an obsessive college professor – a professor who now just so happens to work at the same ape sanctuary that the most recent victim worked at too. It's a slam dunk, and although Castle is sorry he can’t prove that Bigfoot exists, he is at least pleased he has helped put another killer behind bars.

YESTERDAY (Sky 537, Virgin 203, Freeview 19)

Each episode of this eight part series focuses on a different museum and profiles key artefacts from their perspective collections. World-renowned historians, experts and curators tell the fascinating stories behind these objects and uncover their inspiration, spirituality, interpretation, mystery, science, discovery, protection and preservation.

The National Maritime Museum collection allows visitors to trace the origins of British sea power, its accomplishments in the age of empire, and its consequences in the world today.

This museum celebrates Great Britain’s proud sea-faring heritage and its naval heroes; most famous of all is Admiral Horatio Nelson. He was shot and killed during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 and for decades many stories circulated about who the man who pulled the trigger was. One claim from a Frenchman was he shot Nelson from the rigging of a French ship. Could a sniper really have targeted Nelson in all the smoke and chaos of the battle?

Despite having recently been married, the 24 year-old takes the move on with gusto, but he quickly opens up about how life on the road can take its toll with loved ones. He reveals he’s hoping to meet up with his dad – also a truck driver – in the Northern Territory but when complications at a weight station leave him grounded it looks like the reunion is off.

6/8. It’s a potentially game-changing week for heavy haulage boss Jon Kelly. When he takes on a last-minute move as a favour to a rival company run by an ex-employee an easy-money move turns into a potentially disastrous operation that could do more harm to the MegaTruckers than good. And there’s a $97 million contract up for grabs that will keep Jon’s trucks, trailers and drivers busy for the next 3-years – but only if HHA can achieve an elusive ‘TIER-1’ safety rating in an audit conducted at the depot by the prospective clients.
