Friday Oct 14, 9.30-11.35pm The Kid TVB Pearl If an adult had the chance to meet him/herself as an eight-year-old child, would that kid be happy with who he turned out to be? In Russ Duritz's case, the answer is a resounding 'No!' Russ (Bruce Willis) finds his life as a successful 'image consultant' turned upside down when he magically meets Rusty (Spencer Breslin) - himself as a child. Rusty is not at all happy with who he turns out to be - a 40-year-old 'loser' without a wife or a dog. The boy helps Russ to learn about himself and remember his dreams. Saturday Oct 15, 8.05-9pm For One Night Only: Men in Tights ATV World Eight Newcastle shipbuilders are about to turn the world of dance on its head. In a unique collaboration with the English National Ballet, they're going to bring ballet to the people, stepping into the spotlight before friends, family and their workmates. They've had just one month to prepare and they've got one chance to get it right. And they're terrified, because for one night only, these shipbuilders are ballet stars and pulling off a perfect performance will be the triumph of a lifetime. Daniel Jones, soloist with the English National Ballet, has been given the task of turning shipbuilders into dancers. Daniel hopes to find 10 dancers in an open audition that has been arranged at the Swan Hunter shipyard. But will any of the workers be prepared to put their tough guy reputations on the line? Sunday Oct 16, 9pm-12.30am The Green Mile ATV World The Green Mile is told in a flashback narrated by Paul Edgecomb to his friend Elaine Connelly. Edgecomb is living in an old-age home some six decades after working as the head guard on Death Row at Cold Mountain Penitentiary. Edgecomb's tour of duty at Cold Mountain in the Depression-era South included watching over a quartet of killers awaiting their final walk down 'the Green Mile,' the stretch of green floor covering that took convicts from their cells to the electric chair. Over the years, Edgecomb had walked the mile with a variety of criminals. But he had never encountered someone like John Coffey, a massive black man convicted of brutally killing a pair of nine-year-old sisters. Coffey certainly had the size and strength to kill anyone, but his demeanour starkly contrasted with his appearance. Beyond his simple, naive nature and a deep fear of the dark, Coffey seemed to possess a supernatural gift. Edgecomb began to question whether Coffey was truly guilty of murdering the two girls. As the story unfolds, Edgecomb learns that, sometimes, miracles happen in the most unexpected places. Monday Oct 17, 9-10pm Jack & Bobby - Chess Lessons ATV World Grace promises to be on her best behaviour when she and Jack go to Missy's house for dinner but loses her cool after the Reverend (guest-star Ed Begley, Jr) starts attacking her ideals. Upset by the event, Grace turns to Tom (Bradley Cooper) and the two share a very romantic moment. Meanwhile, Bobby intentionally loses at chess games with Peter in order to spend more time with him. Also, Courtney uses Marcus to get back at Jack. Lastly, in the future, President McCallister uses chess to create a war strategy. Tuesday Oct 18, 9-10pm The Little Buddhas and Tigers ATV World Deep in the jungles of Thailand, a Buddhist monastery is home to almost 500 animals. Among them, seven baby tigers are growing up with the monks. The youngest tigers, Storm and Thunder, were brought in by a remorseful poacher who killed their mother. For Buddhists, all animals should live in harmony so the monks try to keep the peace between predators and prey, feeding the tigers cooked meat to avoid giving them a taste for blood. Visitors to the temple bringing money and gifts often see tigers playing with monks as the head priest explains the Buddha's teachings. Wednesday Oct 19, 10.35-12pm Without A Trace (III): In the Dark TVB Pearl The sole responsibility of the New York Missing Persons Squad of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is to apply advanced psychological profiling techniques to trace the victims' whereabouts. Were they abducted or murdered, did they commit suicide or simply run away? The team probes all facets of the victim's life, following one simple rule: learn who the victim is to learn where they are. Thursday Oct 20, 8.30-9.30pm Man's Heritage: Carnivorous Ants TVB Pearl In many ways, ant societies often appear to be a replica of humans' on a reduced scale. The insects have 'social organisation', hierarchy, specialisation of tasks, inventiveness, adaptation and communication. Hardworking and diligent, ants are also fierce warriors. Some carnivorous species - such as fire ants - devastate everything in their paths and pose real ecological problems in certain parts of the world. They are such a nuisance that scientists are now preparing a whole arsenal to combat these pests. The 'deadly weapons' are based on pheromones - used to influence the behaviour and development of the ants - and also include aerial attacks by phorid flies. However, war is not a characteristic of all ant species. Certain species have developed their gifts in other domains, such as architecture, farming, breeding, and weaving.
