Icons

BBC2

Editor: Nick Follows

This ambitious series looks to crown the most beloved icons of the 20th century, inviting audiences to vote for their most influential figure. The shortlisted ‘icons’ have been divided up into different categories depending on their field of excellence.

Nick Follows  worked across the series and edited tonight’s episode which looks at Artists and Writers. Actress and model Lily Cole assesses the legacies and achievements of Pablo Picasso, Virginia Woolf, Alfred Hitchcock and Andy Warhol – four of the 20th century’s greatest artists and writers. Co-founder of the Cubist movement, Picasso possessed extraordinary talent from an early age. He could have had a brilliant career as a traditional artist, but chose to rip up the artistic rule book, creating defiantly sensual and provocative pieces. Woolf subverted expectations, both professionally and personally, breaking new ground in literature and issuing a rallying cry for artistic equality on behalf of women everywhere. Nicknamed the `Master of Suspense’, Hitchcock’s career spanned six decades, and he was behind some of the most famous moments in cinema. In an age of post-war prosperity, Andy Warhol’s work, which explored consumerism and mass production, was so revolutionary that while some thought he had redefined art, others believed he had broken it.

Voting begins at the end of each programme at 10pm, and is open until 4pm the next day. The winners of the two categories airing each week will be announced live on The One Show – which will also be supporting the show’s grand finale in February.

Icon’s Artists and Writers is aired tonight at 9pm BBC2.

Breaking Dad

Editors: Dan Knight and Dave Berezai

Hungry Bear for ITV

Actor Bradley Walsh and his 20-year-old son Barney are hitting the road together for a brand-new four-part series, travelling over 2000 miles from Los Angeles to New Orleans. They might be father and son but when it comes to travelling they are worlds apart, with Bradley keen to relax while Barney wants to live life a little more on the edge. Worried his old man is too stuck in his ways, Barney has decided to take matters into his own hands with an adventurous trip that his dad will never forget.

Dave Berezai edited episode 1. He said “It was great to work on an ITV prime-time show with all those at Hungrybear. Brad provided real moments of comedy and the situations he found himself in created genuine drama. It was great fun putting it all together and crafting the show”.

Dan Knight edited episodes 2 (Arizona) and 3 (Texas). He said “The team were great, especially series director Phil Ashton.The biggest challenge was finding the nuggets of reality when the talent let their guard down. They had very clear ideas of what the show should be, but the best moments came when they were just being themselves. Bradley is a big character and will always give great material but it’s fun to find the real moments of terror and joy when their guard slips, like the Skydiving or the cowboy college. Then to build that into something that feels really special”

Episode 3 ‘Texas’ is aired tonight 8pm ITV

The first two episodes in a brand new series following top flight football club West Ham United women’s team and their 19 year-old Managing Director Jack Sullivan.

Filming on and off the pitch across the season, the series will follow the progress of a squad of female players as they debut in the professional Women’s Super League. Having leapfrogged two divisions from the part-time third tier into the newly-revamped league, West Ham United women’s team will now, for the first time, compete at the highest level of the sport, against some of the toughest teams in the world.

Jack’s first full-time job since leaving school at 16 will be overseeing a squad of 18 outspoken, powerful women, and trying to raise the profile of a growing sport, one often dismissed and derided by male fans. With exclusive access to the club, players and backroom staff, as well as to Jack and his larger-than-life family, this is a revealing and inspiring behind-the-scenes story of what it takes to be a professional female footballer in today’s game, and whether a loveable but inexperienced teenager can change the face of women’s football.Mark Pickles and Jamie Williams are working on the series.

Editor: Simon ‘Badger’  Cooper

True Vision

As Prime Minister Theresa May declares that austerity is over, the programme reveals that more than 35,000 parents are now using baby banks to provide their young children with nappies, clothes, toys and cots. Dispatches has discovered that there are now more than 100 baby banks in the UK, the vast majority of which have been set up since the austerity programme began. For the first time, Dispatches has surveyed these baby banks, to get a sense of who they’re serving and the services they’re providing and meeting working parents who can’t afford the most basic essentials and have to rely on baby banks to provide for their children.

Badger said “I’m really pleased with this film and proud that Commissioning Editor thought it the best Dispatches she’s commissioned! It was hard work given 35 hours of footage and just three weeks to craft, great team effort to get it out on time and produce something a little different with a lot of heart”
