Gosh! February is here already. I remember January always felt like the longest month but why is that? it only has 31 days the same as many others. It is because financially speaking we all had extra expenditure due to Christmas and we were all paid a week earlier, so it seemed like ages waiting for the next pay day. No longer a problem for most of us, of course.

The weekend TV schedules offer the regular mix of game shows: Catchphrase, Limitless Win, That´s My Jam, entertainment programmes: Dancing On Ice, The Masked Singer, Michael MacIntyre´s Big Show, The John Bishop Show, and excellent drama series: His Dark Materials, Call The Midwife, Happy Valley, for us to enjoy.

New for this week, you can watch an eclectic mix of documentaries on subjects including Secret Hotels, Extreme Medics, Royal Scandals, Jeremy Clarkson, Brink's-Mat Robbery, Magical World of Moss, Beast from the East, and Putin.
