Finding Me A Family airs Tues 5 Dec on Channel 4

There are over 2000 children in England in care, waiting to be adopted. Children in sibling groups, or older than five, or from different ethnic backgrounds, or with additional needs, or several of the above, struggle the most with finding families. On paper, many adopters have traditionally preferred babies or toddlers. So what if prospective parents were to meet face to face with children waiting to be adopted? How might human interaction and chemistry figure?

Finding Me a Family, airing Tuesday 5 December at 9.00pm on Channel 4, follows adoption activity days organised by the children’s charity Coram. It’s a party that could change the lives of both the kids and the adopters. These events attracted controversy when they were introduced from the US six years ago – but they have proved successful, with one in four children who attend going on to be adopted.

In this programme, 13 prospective parents and 10 children meet at a jungle-themed party in the Midlands. Enjoying the fun are four siblings aged between six months and six years. But with sibling groups being the hardest to place of all, they face being split up unless a new family can adopt all four. The party is also one of the last opportunities for two young brothers from a minority background to find a family to keep them together. Another boy has already been separated from his siblings – will today’s event lead him to find a new family?

Finding Me A Family airs Tuesday 5 December from 9.00pm-10.00pm on Channel 4.

Episode two. Filming has started on What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? and Joan (Jessica Lange) and Bette (Susan Sarandon) agree on at least one thing: that the very pretty young actress cast as the neighbour will have to go.

Jack Warner (Stanley Tucci) is delighted with the daily rushes and encourages director Robert Aldrich (Alfred Molina) to add fuel to the actresses feud, to enhance their on-screen performances.

Feud Bette and Joan Episode 1

The truly excellent eight part drama Feud: Bette and Joan, from Ryan Murphy and starring Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange, premieres on BBC Two on 16 December at 9.00pm.

Episode one. 1962. Hollywood legend Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) realises that good roles are not being written for women of her age – and decides to find one for herself.

When she comes across the novel What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? by Henry Farrell, she knows that she has found the perfect part and convinces director Robert Aldrich (Alfred Molina) to champion the movie.

But now she needs to bring her bitter Hollywood rival and star of equal magnitude Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) on board the project. Sparks are about to fly.

Beginning with Davis and Crawford’s collaboration on What Ever Happened To Baby Jane? and continuing long after the cameras stopped rolling, Feud: Bette And Joan explores with great style and wit how the two stars endured ageism, sexism and misogyny while struggling to hang on to success and fame in the twilight of their careers.

The eight-part series from Ryan Murphy (The People vs OJ Simpson) also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones as Olivia de Havilland, Kathy Bates as Joan Blondell, Judy Davis as Hollywood gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, Stanley Tucci as Warner Bros. studio head Jack L. Warner, Jackie Hoffman as Mamacita, Crawford’s housekeeper, and Alison Wright as Pauline, Aldrich’s assistant.

Feud: Bette And Joan Episode 1 (of 8) airs Saturday 16 December 2017 from 9.00pm-9.55pm on BBC Two.
