Extreme Wives with Kate Humble is a new documentary series airing on BBC Two. In the series, Kate examines communities around the world where the roles of women are quite complex and even extreme. The first episode starts in south-west Kenya, in the predominantly Christian district of Kyria. People from Kyria are traditionally cattle-herding warriors. Nowadays, the most of the population is focused on agriculture. However, cattle remains important as currency in marriage. The people from Kyria are polygamous. This means that men marry a number of wives. Furthermore, woman-to-woman non-sexual marriages also exist. Female circumcision has deep roots in their culture even though it has been illegal since 2011. The Church opposes it.

UK TV Guide films on tv tonight - Blue Planet II

Blue Planet II: Coral Reefs – BBC One, 20:00

Sir David Attenborough returns to the ocean waters in order to show an array of weird and wonderful creatures. The first season of these mini=series will feature 7 episodes. The third episode is called Coral Reefs. We are introduced to creatures that live on coral reefs. This includes groupers, small predators for whom the scientists believe that they are as intelligent as chimpanzees. They have a remarkable aptitude for communication to the point where they interact with other species including the octopi to catch prey. The footage of a vast spawning event involving several different species of fish, coral and invertebrates, and time-lapse photography of coral polyps growing and dying will leave you breathless. The time-lapse photography of corals is creating a structure visible from space.


Big Ben

Big Ben: Saving the World’s Most Famous Clock – Channel 4, 21:00

Big Ben: Saving the World’s Most Famous Clock is a documentary about restoration work on the iconic clock tower. The restoration will silence the famous bells for four years. Anna Keay, Director of Landmark Trust, goes behind the scenes on this massive project. She talks to Parliament’s principal architect and the three clockmakers who have the task of taking the gigantic mechanism apart for the first time in 160 years. The documentary examines the clock’s history revealing how it was almost not built. The documentary will certainly find its way to some of the finest examples of UK TV Programmes.


Men in Black

Men in Black – Channel 4, 17:45

This is the first of the sci-fi comedy franchise starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. The Men in Black are an agency that protects Earth from not only what the aliens, some of whom are already here, might do to it, but also the common man’s ignorance of this situation. It opens a doorway into a fantasy world that would be overwhelming were it not for the rookie agent J (Will Smith) who brings both his sass and undeniable charm posing as a proxy for the audience, asking the questions we want to, and being given the exposition and explanations that we need. He is likeable in his naiveté and his efforts to help the people affected by the outer-space stuff, and the odd couple dynamic between him and K (Tommy Lee Jones) is great.
