Live Brexit Referendum: Do We Want No Deal?

Thursday 9pm – 10.35pm, Channel 5

I know, I know, that word again. You can’t get away from it! It goes on and on, but alas, the end may just be in sight! With Boris Johnson determined to get Brexit done by 31st October 2019 ‘by any means necessary’ the UK may just find itself out of the European Union in the next couple of weeks. It seems an age since the referendum on Thursday 23rd June 2016 where 52% of the vote, some 17.4 million people, determined the UK should leave the EU, it was largely unexpected, with most politicians and media missing the feeling of the public. Nothing seems to have changed there if social media is to be believed.

The Imitation Game

Sunday 6.35pm – 8.50pm, Film 4

In a performance that can only be described as breath-taking and incredible, Benedict Cumberbatch plays the cryptographic genius Alan Turing - a man who achieved so much in his short life, despite hiding the fact he was a homosexual for many years; which at the time was illegal, and many aspects to his work was prevented from being made public due to the Official Secrets Act. He was an incredible mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher and computer scientist. Critical to the development of theoretical computer science he laid the foundations for the formal concepts of algorithms and computation, creating the Turing machine which was widely seen to be a model for a general purpose computer, he is widely seen as the father of computer science and artificial intelligence.

Thomas Cook: The Rise & Fall of Britain’s Oldest Travel Agent

Sunday 8pm – 9pm, Channel 4

Beginning life as an organiser of day trips between Leicester and Loughborough in 1841, Thomas Cook grew into a household name, with millions of Brits enjoying holidays around the globe with them. The firm included names such as Winston Churchill, Mark Twain and Rudyard Kipling as customers who utilised their services. It was one of the few tour operators that still had hundreds of shops on the high street as others in the sector moved largely online. But last week it suffered an ignominious demise as over 600000 customers were left stranded abroad, with many being threatened by hotel security guards and others facing demands from resort management for large amounts of money after Thomas Cook slipped into insolvency. A quarter of those stranded were Brit’s, and yet again the CAA were forced to enact a large operation to repatriate them - this time on a much larger scale than the Monarch Airlines collapse in 2017. On a much sadder aspect, some 9000 people face the prospect of being made redundant by the 178 year old company, and the public certainly appreciate this - there were several instances of ‘whip-rounds’ on the final Thomas Cook flights to make sure the crew were paid for their efforts.

Spitfire

Thursday 9pm – 10.30pm, BBC4

Between World War One and World War Two, the Air Ministry released specification F7/30 which called for a modern, fighter capable of a flying speed of 250mph. An excellent, independent company called Supermarine submitted a monoplane called the Supermarine Type 224, but it failed in its bid and was beaten to selection by the Gloster Gladiator. The designer, R.J. Mitchell was undeterred and set about improving his design, refining it and creating a smoother, cleaned-up aircraft, the Type 300. The work paid off, and 1934 Air Vice Marshal Cave-Browne-Cave gave Supermarine £10000 to develop the aircraft, becoming what we know today as the Spitfire. What many may not know, Winston Churchill, then a politician, tried in vain to stop Cave-Browne-Cave funding this project.
