It’s nearing Friday night and the weekend, and over here at TV Scoop that means one thing: The weekend what to watch round up.
This weekend is packed with a range of programmes ranging from the serious to family fun to those awards ceremonies.
First up we look at a programme tonight that falls in the “serious” list. Father Ray Comes Out hits Channel 4 tonight at 7:30 and looks at the life of Gay church of England clergyman Ray.
In this series Ray considers whether it’s right to come out to his parish, looks at the stereotypes gay priests face and the reaction he may begin if he tells his flock.
If this is slightly too heavy for you and your a night owl then flick over to ITV at 10:35 for 30 Years of An Audience With. This looks at the highlights of the popular series with highlights including Kylie Minogue and veteran comedian Ronnie Corbett.
Looking for something a bit gritty? The Channel 5 might have something right up your street with Cops in Crisis at 11:55, a great programme for those who like to stay up or the others who have come back a little bit tipsy from the pub.
This documentary looks at the dangerous and harrowing situations experienced by police officers, from robbery attempts gone wrong to deadly shoot-outs. If this is your type of programme then BBC 2’s Toughest Place to Be a Paramedic on Sunday at 9pm will be right up your street.
In this new series British professionals spend a fortnight using their skills in tricky, foreign environments. First up is Angie Dymott, a kindly, robust paramedic from Cardiff. Sensibly, she wants to try out the equivalent job in one of the most violent places on earth: Guatemala City.
Back to Saturday night BBC 2 brings back the iconic Blackadder with Blackadder Rides Again at 8pm, which brings together all the cast in a documentary. Viewers also get the pleasure of hearing Rowan Atkinson, talk about his experience making the show.
If you’re too young to appreciate this then Ant & Dec’s Push the Button on ITV at 7:20 might be a better bet. Like the series before it and the one before it, this sees the pair lead families through a live quiz, and even join in themselves, as they fight to hold onto the £100,000 prize.
This brings us onto Sunday and the must-have British Academy Film Awards which are to be aired on BBC 1 at 9:00pm. Expect lots of red carpet action and tearful speeches, and if you’re a red carpet fashion fan then also click onto our sister site ShinyStyle for all the celebrity style.
