Season 4 Episode 9 of 20
Great Canadian Railway Journeys: Miramichi to Quebec City Michael Portillo starts the next leg of his journey in the Acadian fishing village of Neguac, New Brunswick, where he learns how to farm sea oysters, before investigating why the French-speaking Acadians were expelled by the British from lands they had occupied further south. Boarding the night sleeper for the next 400 miles, he heads for Quebec City. With its narrow streets and flights of steps, and a hotel modelled on a 16th-century chateau, the city was the heart of New France and reminds Michael of Paris. However, its national dish leaves him cold

Back in Time for School
Season 7 Episode 3 of 8
1940s and 50s The time-travelling documentary reaches the post-Second World War years, when a revolution in education saw children separated into one of three schools - grammars, secondary moderns and technical. The volunteer pupils attend grammar, representing the one in four children who won a coveted place by passing the 11-plus exam. Here, they delve into teachings on sex education, cycling proficiency, the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 and rising incomes in the mid-1950s as well as debates among boys and girls on fighting for your country

The documentary focuses on the staff and patients of the Walton Centre, the UK's only dedicated spine, brain and pain management centre, which sits adjacent to Aintree University Hospital. Among the patients are 22-year-old Sophie, who suffered serious inflammation of the brain stem which means she has to be on a ventilator at night, and Tom, 18, who sustained significant head injuries in a car crash and now struggles to remember the simplest of things. For further rehabilitation, however, he will need private rehabilitation services, and that will require funding

Britain's Fat Fight with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
Britain's Fat Fight: The Battle Continues Britain is already the fattest country in Western Europe and if trends continue, more than 50 per cent will be obese by 2050. Last year, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall presented a three-part documentary in which he set out to tackle the national obesity crisis. Now he returns with a final instalment, examining some of the misleading marketing claims on `healthier' products, unveiling the truth about why Brits love to snack and challenging a family to rethink their portion sizes. He also heads to Westminster with Jamie Oliver to talk to MPs about the obesity crisis and gets an opportunity to put his questions directly to the Health Minister

Back in Time for School
Season 7 Episode 1 of 8
Back in Time for School Fifteen teenagers and three teachers embark on a time-travelling adventure through 100 years of school history. Led by presenter Sara Cox and social historian Polly Russell, the volunteers fast-forward through seven different eras, taking them to the end of the 20th century - and in each period there will be new school dinners to try, new trips to take and new ideas about what school is actually for. They begin in Victorian times, where they discover what it was like for the lucky four per cent of children able to attend school at a time when education was still seen as a preserve for the rich but a handful of schools offered affordable places to ordinary families for the first time
