    BBC Two
    From radio to TV, Dead Ringers brings Doctor Who, Tony Blair, George Bush and many more to our screens in unexpected and extremly funney sketches and stunts. With their own twist on programmes such as Restoration, How Clean is Your House, Dr Who and The Office, Jon Culshaw, Jan Ravens, Kevin Connelly, Phil Cornwell and Mark Perry prove once again that nothing is sacred and no-one is safe. Derren Brown, Paul Burrell, Simon Cowell and Kim and Aggie from 'How Clean Is Your House' had also better look out - they’re amongst the new characters to be given the Dead Ringers treatment, joining such favourites as Simon Schama, Sophie Raworth, Robert Winston, Gandalf and the Osbournes in this topical round-up of the year’s events. Christmas has never been so spicy. Dead Ringers started life on BBC Radio Four. Listeners loved the witty way it lampooned the station's shows and personalities: newsreaders Brian Perkins and Charlotte Green were transformed into "The Daddy", and a sultry sex-kitten, respectively! When the show made the leap to TV, a host of new targets walked into the line of fire including Ricky Gervais, Ozzy Osbourne, Fiona Bruce, Dirty Den and Kirsty Allsop (from Location Location Location). All of these characters (and more) are brought to you by a cast of just four regulars (Kevin Connelly, Jon Culshaw, Mark Perry and Jan Ravens). And unlike some sketch-based comedies that have blighted British screens, a crack writing team means that there's zero padding in each episode.moreless

    BBC Two
    Auschwitz: Inside the Nazi State is a six-part historical documentary film directed by Laurence Rees for BBC that centers on one of the most unsettling and abhorrent occurrences in history - the infamous factory of death, the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. In 'Surprising Beginnings', the scene is set for Auschwitz's creation as the Nazi state begins to react violently against its enemies, specifically the Soviet Union, and its experiments with gas execution on Russian prisoners. 'Orders and Initiatives' discusses the plans made by Adolf Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and Reinhard Heydrich during the Wannsee Conference as the approval for gas chambers and the selection of doctors, who were given the job of deciding who would live or die, were made. 'Factories of Death', 'Corruption', and 'Murder and Intrigue' focuses on the mass annihilation of Jews, the uniqueness of Auschwitz's dual status as a concentration and extermination camp, and the rumors spreading of resistance and potential freedom at the hands of the Allies. Lastly, 'Liberation and Revenge' centers on the efforts made by the Nazis in order to hide the mass murders while survivors search for their families. Auschwitz: Inside the Nazi State is a heart-wrenching and poignant look at one of the horrors of history and the lessons it teaches us in how to prevent it from happening in the future.moreless
