The Big Family Cooking Showdown Episode 9 (BBC-2 12 Oct 2017)

Published

on

It’s the first of the Cooking Showdown semi-finals and the pressure is set to rise, as the competition is taken to the next level. After meeting 16 families over eight heats, judges Rosemary and Giorgio introduce a series of brand new challenges to determine which teams will earn a place in the final.

Unlike previous challenges, the competing families who have made it this far don’t know what’s in store. This time, three families, instead of two, will be welcomed back: the Charles family, the Karims and the Herberts.

In the first of the new rounds, What’s In The Fridge? will test their creativity as home cooks. The judges have provided a limited range of ingredients and the family teams have one hour to plan and cook a main course for four people.

In the next challenge, Perfect Puddings, each judge has carefully selected a firm family favourite they would like teams to make in 80 minutes. From Rosemary it’s sticky toffee pudding, and from Giorgio it’s profiteroles.

The third semi-final challenge, Nation’s Favourite With A Twist, will ask families for their unique take on a British classic, the roast dinner. In two hours Rosemary and Giorgio want to see how the teams tackle some classic techniques but also if they can make the ordinary, extraordinary.

The Big Family Cooking Showdown Episode 9 (of 12) airs Thursday 12 October 2017 from 8.00pm-9.00pm on BBC Two.

U2 At The BBC Premieres Tues 19 Dec on BBC One

U2 at the BBC

U2 at the BBC is a world exclusive hour-long music entertainment show, premiering on Tuesday 19 December at 9.00pm, presented by Cat Deeley and broadcast on BBC One.

Recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios and produced by BBC Studios, two-time Golden Globe and 22-time Grammy Award-winning U2 perform some of their biggest hits, alongside brand new tracks from their forthcoming album Songs Of Experience.

The band talks to host Cat Deeley about rehearsing in a garden shed, who has the worst fashion sense off stage and being a family. They pay tribute to their friend Michael Hutchence 20 years on from his death, and tell the real story behind the free release of their album Songs Of Innocence.

Cat says: “Abbey Road Studios has played home to the great and the good, from classical masterpieces to modern-day classics. Everyone from Pink Floyd and the Beatles to Amy Winehouse and The Drifters have at some stage created some musical magic within the hallowed walls. Now it’s U2’s turn to make history.

“This intimate gig for the BBC is one of a kind. The stadium rock gods strip everything back for a one-off very special performance of some of their new tracks and old favourites. Then it’s question time, as we go back to when Larry pinned an advert to his school noticeboard, Edge’s mum being a roadie, the ‘iTunes debacle’ and the burning question – what name is on Bono’s coffee cup?

“Four disarmingly charming gents, each funny and eloquent in their own unique ways. A 40-year friendship, so unusual and so deliciously apparent, the audience will find it infectious.”

In exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, the band allowed TV cameras special access backstage and gave Cat an AAA backstage tour as they prepared to perform at the Morumbi stadium in Sao Paulo, Brazil last month.

U2 At The BBC is the fifth in the At The BBC series, and will follow Harry Styles At The BBC, presented by Nick Grimshaw, which aired on 2 November 2017, and Sam Smith At The BBC, presented by Fearne Cotton, which aired on 9 November 2017.

U2 At The BBC airs Tuesday 19 December 2017 from 9.00pm-10.00pm on BBC One.

Let's Get A Good Thing Going BBC 2017

In the seaside town of Barry, South Wales, four locals are pitching their dream projects – ones they believe will make big improvements in their neighbourhood.

Having donated to the community fund, the residents of Barry get together with host Kevin Duala in the town’s famous Memorial Hall to hear about four very different ventures – before choosing the one that they support the most.

Former Welsh Guardsman Sean wants backing for his idea to help children and parents stay fit and have fun, whilst green fingered Nicky wants funds to create a sensory garden.

Aoife hates the negative headlines that the litter on the beaches creates for Barry and has a novel approach to keeping the town’s beaches litter free.

Menawhile teacher and archeologist Karl wants to share the secrets of the ancient Barry medieval ruins that are lying unmarked.

The local residents decide who takes home the money and starts their dream project. Viewers catch up four weeks later to see the winning project in action. Will it make a difference? And what of the runners up?

Let’s Get A Good Thing Going Episode 2 (of 5) airs Tuesday 19 December 2017 from 9.15am-10.00am on BBC One.
