Binge New Dramas
Got a taste for historical European dramas? “Call the Midwife,” “All Creatures Great and Small” and “Funny Woman” will satisfy your British craving, while “Hotel Europa” will have you wanting more episodes.

Call the Midwife - “Call the Midwife” follows nurses, midwives and nuns from Nonnatus House, who visit the expectant mothers of Poplar, providing the poorest women with the best possible care. 

All Creatures Great and Small - James Herriot’s adventures as a veterinarian in 1930s Yorkshire get a glorious new adaptation in a series based on his internationally celebrated books. Nicholas Ralph makes his TV debut as the iconic vet who became renowned for his inspiring humor, compassion and love of life. 

Funny Woman - It’s the height of the swinging ‘60s and Barbara Parker has just been crowned Miss Blackpool – but she’s certain there has to be more to life than being a beauty queen in a seaside town. With the bright lights of London calling, Barbara packs her backs and heads off to the city where she looks to take on the male-dominated world of comedy by storm.

Hotel Europa – (In German with English subtitles) Based on actual events that helped shape Germany between wars, this is the dramatic chronicle of a hotel frequented by Charlie Chaplin, Konrad Adenauer and Adolf Hitler.

Finding Your Roots - For more than a decade, renowned Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr., has helped to expand America’s sense of itself, stimulating a national conversation about identity with humor, wisdom and compassion. LeVar Burton, Ciara and Bob Odenkirk are featured in Season 10.

Nature: Big Little Journeys - Small animals must sometimes make epic journeys to find a home or a mate. While the distances may not seem monumental to us, grasses appear like skyscrapers and raindrops fall as big as cars to these little creatures. Meet six heroic, tiny travelers – a turtle, a bushbaby, a pangolin, a lion tamarin, a water vole and a chameleon – risking it all to complete big journeys against the odds.

Celebrate with Sermon and Song
Gospel music has a deep-rooted history for many people. Celebrate alongside those in the past and present that are continuing to keep the popular Black genre alive.
