Raven, the award-winning fantasy adventure gameshow for kids, is back on CBBC for the first time since 2010 with a brand new Raven at the helm. The new series, premiering Monday 4 December airs weekdays at 3.50pm on CBBC.

Aisha Toussaint takes on the mantle of Raven, who is out to find a True Warrior to help her battle her nemesis, evil sorcerer Nevar.

For the next three weeks, 16 contenders from all over the UK aged 9-13 will take on challenges testing their courage, strength, agility and resourcefulness as they try to win the most golden treasure rings and make it through the Last Stand and into the Grand tournament.

On Monday, we meet the first four young warriors who have answered Raven’s call and will fight under the banner of the Bear: Larsai, Ledag, Hanmor and Piapta. All are hoping to stay strong through challenges including Cursed Chasm and Pool Plunge.

On Tuesday, the unlucky warrior with the least rings will leave the quest.
In the first game, Warrior’s Eye, the children must prove their archery skills while in Riddle Rocks, they face a tricky word puzzle.

On Wednesday, the winner of the Bears’ heat is revealed – the warrior who successfully completes The Last Stand will go through to the Grand Tournament and have the chance to become a True Warrior.

On Thursday, we meet the next four warriors battling under the banner of the Wolves – Nantin, Dakof, Ciarc and Syora. Their courage, strength, agility and resourcefulness will be put to the test in challenges including Magnetic Maze and Escape the Cage.

On Friday, after the warriors show their mettle in games including Forest Of Golden Orbs and Leap Of Faith, another warrior will be eliminated from Raven’s challenge.

Raven Episodes 1-5 air Monday 4 December to Friday 8 December 2017 from 3.50pm-4.20pm on CBBC.

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.
