For a hard-hitting documentary
Sara Cox, Grace Dent and Sophie Ellis-Bextor put their thinking caps on in three documentaries exploring how the digital age affects friendships, love and fame.

For marriages made in heaven (sort of)
It’s The Hangover meets Don’t Tell the Bride. This new show drops a real bride or groom and their friends in a random country before their wedding; all they have to get to the venue by any means possible or miss getting hitched. The prize if they make it? A luxury honeymoon.
For super soap-lovers
If you can’t live without your fix of Albert Square drama but would prefer to tune in a little later, W is showing weekday episodes just two hours after they’ve aired on BBC One. Plus, there’s now a Sunday omnibus so you can catch up with all the goings on back-to-back.
For medical marvels
Proving that ER wasn’t a one-off success, this gripping new medical drama shows what happens in an understaffed emergency room in California. Clue: it isn’t pretty. Marcia Gay Harden is “Daddy”, in charge of a team including Luiz Guzmán (Community) and Raza Jaffrey (Homeland).
For spy thriller addicts
Maggie Gyllenhaal won a Golden Globe for her role as an Anglo-Israeli businesswoman caught up in an espionage plot in this eight-part political thriller. If you missed it when it first aired on the BBC, don’t make that mistake again.
You can find W at CH 124 and W HD at CH 191). Shows are also available after broadcast in UKTV Play
