Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing

"Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer return to Scotland for their latest fishing trip. Having failed to catch a salmon in the River Tay, they hope to have more luck on the Tweed. They begin their journey at the isolated Bemersyde Estate before moving on to the Bridge Pool at Kelso, one of the most famous salmon fishing spots in Scotland. They also try their hand at boat fishing and receive some mystical predictions from a familiar face."


Harry Hill's World of TV

Sunday, 8:30pm, BBC Two

"The comedian offers his unique take on different TV genres, beginning with a guide to the history of soap operas. Harry touches on everything from The Grove Family and The Newcomers to EastEnders and Coronation Street, while also giving viewers a few helpful tips on how to make their own domestic drama."


George Clarke's National Trust Unlocked

Sunday, 9pm, Channel 4

"George discovers some of the UK's most impressive historic homes, as he is granted special access to some of these extraordinary places, delving into the hidden recesses that visitors don't normally get to see. In this first episode, George's journey begins in Dorset at the UK's most exquisite example of Italianate architecture - the magnificent 17th-century Kingston Lacy. He uncovers a tale of shame and scandal on the south coast, and the beautiful Cotswold landmark - Hidcote Manor Gardens - in full bloom takes his breath away. George also mines the history of the country's last cave dwellers at one of Britain's best-kept secrets, the Rock Houses at Kinver Edge, and finally, with his husky Loki, takes a walk at spectacular Studland Bay, part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site."
