New or Returning Shows

Punk, 9.00pm Friday, Sky Arts & NOW TV

This four-part docuseries from executive producer John Varvatos and punk legend Iggy Pop features original interviews with America’s punk pioneers and the UK’s most notorious bands, alongside a blend of rare and unseen photos, gritty archival film and video and a crackling soundtrack.

The series begins with a look back at the Detroit proto-punk scene of 1968, where bands such as The Stooges and MC5 put the 1960s to bed and reinvigorated the New York art music scene in the early ‘70s, inspiring the New York Dolls and The Ramones and giving outsiders a revolution in which to express themselves.

Then in part two at 10.15pm, The Ramones visit London in 1976 and discover a vibrant UK punk scene, launching a second British invasion of America, culminating in a calamitous US tour for The Sex Pistols.

Animals at Play, 8.00pm Sunday, BBC Two

The BBC just keeps coming up with cracking nature shows. Interesting angle with this one.

Across the natural world, young animals spend much of their time playing. From cats that love a game of chase to chimps that can solve puzzles, new research now reveals that play is at the heart of almost everything an animal learns.

And some unexpected species are getting in on all the fun and games.

For example, in the jungles of Thailand, clouded leopard cubs are chasing, climbing, jumping on each other and play fighting. And they play these same games over and over again. But it's not just play - it serves a very practical purpose.

The more they play, the more they hone their skills and eventually these cubs will become formidable tree-based hunters.

Rom is met by Chipo, a teacher who was born and raised in Harare under Mugabe’s rule. She wants to take Rom on a grand, epic road trip that takes in stunning National Parks and close-up encounters with rhinos, elephants and cheetahs.

Don't Miss

Box Set Binge

Nashville, Sky Box Sets

Take a toe-tapping trip to America's Deep South with this compelling country music drama starring Friday Night Lights' Connie Britton and Heroes' Hayden Panettiere.

This hugely entertaining show started out by focusing on the rivalry between Rayna Jaymes, the established Queen of Country Music (Britton) and young sensation Juliette Barnes (Panettiere), but there's so much more to this soapy look at life in Nashville.

Loads of great characters, some really good songs, and enough soapy situations to keep things rattling along - what more could you ask for?
