  • Breaking Pointe (S1)

    Saturdays at 20:20

    While it may be many young girls’ dream to become a ballerina, the reality at the top end of ballet often combines jealousy, competition and crippling dedication.

    Breaking Pointe rips back the curtain and opens the doors of an elite American ballet company, the Salt Lake City Ballet West. Meeting the dancers who dedicate their lives and bodies to the art, and following them once the costumes come off, this reality documentary takes viewers into the heart of the company, obliterating any preconceived notions that ballet is a dated art form.

  • Way To Go (S1)

    Saturdays at 22:00

    After Scott is moved by a terminally ill neighbour’s request to die, he and his best mate Cozzo stumble towards what they think is the only solution: an assisted-suicide machine, constructed from leftover fast food dispenser parts.

    As they launch into a deeply illegal situation, which they will have to keep very quiet, the three 20-something mates find love in the strangest ways, fall out with each other and are touched by the people they come across. But it’s their own inadequacies and personal circumstances that most often lead to comedy in the darkest of situations.
