Premieres June 12. Anthony Andrews (Brideshead Revisited) anchors this classic British series about a team of bomb disposal experts.

Premieres June 5. Hugh Knight is a rising star in the Sydney heart surgery ranks. He is gifted, charmed, and infallible: a hedonist who - due to his sheer talent - believes he can live outside the rules. But after an incident involving drugs and alcohol, his world comes crashing down. Placed on the Impaired Registrants List for his part in the debacle by the Medical Board, he is banned from surgery and can only work as a local doctor. "Hilarious" -The Daily Telegraph (Australia)
Coming in July. She's a workaholic lawyer with a conscience and a messy personal life. As a crown prosecutor, Helen West (Amanda Burton, The Commander, Silent Witness) deals with domestic abuse, sexual molestation, and murder. Driven by a strong sense of justice and compassion, she pursues cases even when her boss insists she drop them and goes out of her way to offer victims a helping hand. Although she's determined to right the wrongs in others' lives, her own personal affairs could use some work, particularly her relationship with handsome policeman Geoffrey Bailey (Conor Mullen, Reckless, Holby City).
Starts June 19. The beautiful, haunting shores of Scotland's most iconic loch is the stunning backdrop for the new six-part crime drama. In a community nourished and sustained by myth and bordered by untamed nature, the search for a serial killer becomes a matter of life and death for local detective Annie Redford (Laura Fraser, Breaking Bad). Within the tightly knit town, a sense of horror begins to dawn as the villagers realize that there is more than one kind of monster in their midst. Also starring Siobhan Finneran (Happy Valley).
Premieres May 29. Film, theatre, and television greats Sir Ian McKellan and Dame Judi Dench star in this Royal Shakespeare Company production filmed for TV.
Starts June 5. Jean Price (Penelope Keith, To the Manor Born, Good Neighbors) has just been elected Member of Parliament for the left-wing Labour Party. Now her real work begins: getting along with her chauvinist fellow MPs while navigating the Machiavellian world of Westminster. As Tory snob Sir Godfrey Eagan (George Baker, The Ruth Rendell Mysteries) tells her - a bit too gleefully - "Parliament is Parliament, tradition is tradition, and rules is rules."
Coming June 5. The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, comprised of 17 unique 1920's carriages, is the world's most luxurious train journey. The program follows the 40 staff-members and 180 passengers - as they make the 36 hour journey across Europe, despite having no Wi-Fi or showers. This season the old train has a new broom, Pascal Deyrolle, who steps in as the suave and sophisticated General Manager. To stay at the top of the game, no detail is too small for Pascal - but will the staff meet his standards?
