    Shetland [#107H] Blue Lightning Part 1 of 2 After visiting scientist Anna Blake is found murdered in her lab, Perez is compelled to return to his childhood home of Fair Isle. The only suspects appear to be Anna's immediate family and Anna's fellow scientists. Perez and Tosh arrive just before the flights to and from Fair Isle are grounded, due to storms over Shetland. They will have to work in isolation, without access to a forensic team. Perez works quickly, ensuring the crime scene is sealed off. He sends photos of Anna's body to Sandy, who sends them on to forensics in Scotland in order to find a probable cause of death. Meanwhile Tosh is out searching for Peter Latimer, a resident scientist who has been missing since Anna's body was found. She finally apprehends him and brings him back to the centre. Perez decides to leave Latimer on his own for a while as Tosh searches his room looking for anything that connects him to Anna's death. Perez then interviews Anna's husband, Frank. Frank is distraught but increasingly agitated by Perez's questions, especially over the fact he and his wife slept in separate rooms. When Perez finally speaks to Latimer, rather than provide evidence to back up his alibi, Latimer instead demands a solicitor. Latimer has become the prime suspect, particularly when Sandy finds out that he and Anna had a secret assignation in Lerwick two weeks previously. But when Finlay Caulfield is caught trying to damage a memory card from his camera, Perez quickly discovers that all of the pictures on it are of Anna Blake and that Finlay has form for harassment. Armed with this information, Perez goes to speak to him, but Finlay has disappeared from the Field Centre. As Tosh searches for him, a huge explosion is heard nearby. Perez and Tosh swiftly drive towards the source of the blast. They are horrified to see a man on fire running from the burning bird hide. Perez uses his coat to put out the flames. It is Peter Latimer... duration 1:03:49   STEREO TVRE

    Shetland [#108H] Blue Lightning Part 2 of 2 As Peter Latimer lies critically ill in hospital, Perez and Tosh examine the remains of the burnt out building. When they discover evidence that Peter was drinking that night, they wonder why he would leave the safety of his room at the Centre to drink alone, outside? When Latimer then dies from his injuries, Perez urges Sandy to find answers as to why Anna and Peter visited Lerwick two weeks before they both died. As Sandy re-examines the CCTV footage of the two victims, Perez questions Finlay Caulfield about the photographs of Anna on his camera. It is clear that Finlay was obsessed with Anna, but there is still not enough evidence to charge him with murder. Frustrated by so many unanswered questions, Perez decides to use the fact Finlay 'stalked' Anna and asks him directly if Anna was having an affair with Latimer. Finlay confirms she was - and that Frank knew about it. Sandy then reveals that the CCTV footage shows that Latimer was carrying a bag when he left Commercial Street in Lerwick - but not when he entered it. Perez believes the contents of this bag are the reason why Latimer disappeared on the morning of the murder. Its eventual discovery leads them to reveal a plot to blackmail Anna, but not a reason to murder her. It's not until Sandy comes up with a final piece of evidence - proof that one of the residents has been lying about his past - that finally leads Perez to the heart breaking truth. duration 1:16:00   STEREO TVRE

    The Pain Prescription with Dr. Mitchell Yass This program shows viewers exactly why they no longer need to suffer from chronic pain and some of the simple ways to resolve pain. Dr. Yass is a powerful advocate for a new way to look at chronic pain-a way that is non-invasive. In about 90% of cases, the cause is actually a muscular weakness or imbalance-a condition that's easy to treat on your own.
    The Yass Method, developed through his work with more than 10,000 patients, focuses on finding the true source of the pain and then using simple exercises to find lifelong relief. Dr. Yass looks at the most common areas where people experience pain; lays out simple tests that examine things like range of motion, walking patterns, and posture; and teaches how to use this information, rather than mostly invalid diagnostic tests, to determine whether your pain is muscular or structural. If it is structural, you can choose surgery knowing that the outcome will likely be good. But if the pain is muscular, you can use the easy, step-by-step exercises and routines Dr. Yass offers to get the pain resolution you're searching for.
    Many of the people Dr. Yass has treated came to him as a last resort before surgery or as a follow-up after surgery that didn't resolve their pain. Many of them had been told that they would have to manage their pain with drugs for the rest of their lives, or, worse, that there was nothing left to try; they would simply have to live with the pain. This revolutionary program shows that, in most cases, this simply isn't true - and empowers you to create a pain-free life.
