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: Strange Affair (8:00 pm)
When DCI Alan Banks receives a disturbing message from his brother Roy, he drops everything to find him, just as new recruit DI Helen Morton finds evidence linking Banks to the body of a murder victim.
Dalziel and Pascoe: An Autumn Shroud, Part 1 (9:30 pm)
Newlyweds Ellie and Pascoe leave for their honeymoon, so Dalziel decides to take a break of his own in East Anglia. Inevitably, peace is the last thing on the menu as he indulges in a passionate fling with a local widow and uncovers all manner of scurrilous goings-on involving her troubled family. Great actress and former partner of Ralph Fiennes, Francesca Annis guest stars.
Circus: Born to Be Circus (10:30 pm)
Many performers who grew up in the circus find it difficult to imagine another kind of life. Luciano and Gladis Anastasini who are in charge of this year's dog act, are no exception. Seven generations of circus performers have preceded them. Both grew up in the circus, and it is the only life they have ever known. The question is, will their sons Adriano and Brando carry on the family legacy?
