    African Americans:Many Rivers to Cross Marathon All 6 Episodes This 6-part series chronicles the full sweep of African American history, from the origins of slavery on the African continent through five centuries of historic events right up to present day - when America has a black President, yet remains a nation deeply divided by race. It explores the origins of the people from Africa whose enslavement led to the creation of the African American people, as well as the multiplicity of cultural institutions, political strategies, and religious and social perspectives that African Americans have developed against unimaginable odds. All of these elements define black culture and society in its extraordinarily rich and compelling diversity from slavery to freedom, from the plantation to the White House. Hosted by Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and drawing on some of America's top historians and heretofore untapped primary sources, the series guides viewers on a journey across 500 years and two continents to shed new light on the experience of being an African American. duration 7:48:29

    Boy in the Dress An adaptation of David Walliams' book The Boy In the Dress. The Boy in the Dress is a heart warming story about the impact a mother's desertion has upon a family, with hilarious set pieces and lively, standout characters. In the spirit of Billy Elliot it is a joyous celebration of difference and the irrepressible possibilities of the imagination that will resonate around the world. With David Walliams' unique comic vision brought to life by Kevin Cecil's and Andy Riley's passionate, heart-on-sleeve writing, we hope the film will be a hit with an international family audience.

Dennis also has a bit of a secret - he finds himself attracted to the colour and glamour of the fashion world and in an attempt to liven things up a bit, he goes to school in a dress. His Headmaster, Mr. Hawtree, is not amused and Dennis is expelled.
