Tension at the Queen Vic is mounting as Grant discovers that Dougie has altered the arrangements for their planned supermarket robbery and he has serious doubts about his involvement. Sharon is also increasing the pressure on Grant.

Meanwhile Phil's attempts at helping Kathy to come to terms with the past only infuriate her.

Mandela's Promised Land
In 1987 the BBC's Michael Buerk (along with Peter Sharp of ITN) was refused a renewal of his work permit to report from South Africa - effectively he was expelled, as part of the increasing government clampdown on coverage of the apartheid regime.
Now Buerk has returned to follow and talk to a man who was then a prisoner, Nelson Mandela , in the build-up to an election that should confirm him as president of the country that once tried to crush him.
Can the country Michael Buerk knew really become the nation Mandela has dreamed of for 75 years? Mandela talks to Buerk about his early life, the days of his imprisonment and his solitary decision to open talks with the white government. Producer indra de Lanerolle

Bringing together a wealth of fresh, largely female talent, this three-part adaptation of Jeanette Winterson's novel took great risks when it was first screened four years ago.

Beeban Kidron had never directed a television drama, Phillippa Giles had never produced, and 7-year-old actress Emily Aston had never acted beyond the school stage. But the series went on to win two Bafta awards: for best serial, with a best actress award for Geraldine McEwan as the religiously fanatic mother.
Mother adopted Jess with the sole intention of devoting her to the Lord, and in tonight's opening episode the dominated Jess is removed from her peculiar Pentecostal home and sent off to school.
