Starting at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, February 14, tune into Channel 17 for two of Britain’s most gripping crime series - DCI Banks and Dalziel & Pascoe - then stay and watch Circus, a revealing peek into the character-filled world of a real-life traveling show.
Dci Banks: Dry Bones That Dream (8:00 pm)
DCI Alan Banks and DI Helen Morton must learn to reconcile their conflicting policing styles and personalities whilst trying to unravel the increasingly puzzling murder of a local accountant who has been leading a secret double life.
Dalziel and Pascoe: An Autumn Shroud, Part 2 (9:30 pm)
The detectives continue to uncover fraud, murder and conspiracy. When the body of a school principal, thought to be buried in Austria, is found under her own memorial in the school grounds, police detectives Andrew Dalziel and Peter Pascoe are called in to piece together the circumstances surrounding her untimely death.
Circus: Down the Road (10:30 pm)
Emotions run high as the circus season winds down. Many members of the cast and crew won’t be going back to the Big Apple next season – some are heading to Europe; others are still trying to figure out what’s next. Some of the younger performers who have grown up in the circus consider leaving circus life. The night before the final shows, the crew puts on a traditional spoof called Midnight Clowns for the performers. The laughter is infectious and the parting bittersweet. As the trailers pull out of the lot and the tent comes down for the last time, we join in the time-honored circus farewell: not “goodbye,” but “see you down the road.”
