If you’re looking for something to watch on a Tuesday night, look no further. FanNews brings you a list of options on UK TV. Whether you enjoy the soaps, want to watch a movie or need a documentary, we look out for all. Here are five things to watch on TV on February 6, 2018. Enjoy!
#1. It’s all about the soaps with Home & Away
Move over Eastenders, it’s time for a trip Down Under tonight. Home & Away focuses on Tori and Ash, now that Ash is demanding joint custody of his unborn baby and he’s not even considered talking to her first. Meanwhile, Irene continues to worry about Mick’s mental health and thinks about leaving Summer Bay with him when he decides to take a mining job.
And then there’s focus on Robbo, who goes to the police station to answer questions about Novak. His statement certainly has plenty of holes and this could lead to him becoming a murder suspect.
Home & Away is on at 6pm on Channel 5
#2. Catch Will Smith in a Classic
Will Smith may currently be focusing on action movies, but in the past he was a comedic genius. Hancock was one of sweet comedies that shows a side of superheroes nobody considered too much. Hancock is a grumpy and destructive superhero and people are just fed up of him. That is until he rescues a PR guru, played by Jason Bateman.
The two bond, as Bateman’s character attempts to build Hancock’s positive persona. However, Hancock’s origin story soon comes out and it’s as tragic as they come.
While this is a comedy, there may be some strong language. It’s a 12 certificate, but on before the watershed, so most of it should be cut out.
Catch Hancock on Sony Movie Channel at 7:10pm
#3. Go Dark with 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
John Krasinski has come a long way since his time on The Office. He has a movie coming out soon, but one of his first jumps into military and action movies was 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. The movie is based on true events, as a group of ex-soldiers find themselves under fire from Islamist militants at US compounds in Libya.
It’s a Michael Bay movie, so expect a lot of focus on the pyrotechnics and graphics. But there is a storyline in there somewhere. Mostly it’s around the top guys in the CIA, who are far too indecisive and dangerous when it comes to the men on the ground.
Tune into Film4 at 9pm for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
#4. Learn More with Elizabeth: Our Queen
As Queen Elizabeth II reaches the 65th year of her reign, historians take a look back at the woman behind the persona that the world views her as. If you’ve loved Netflix’s The Crown, you’ll adore the documentary into the woman who is the figurehead for the United Kingdom.
This is just the first part of an 8-part series. There’s plenty of archive footage and interviews hardly ever seen, as the documentarians look at the private life. Oh and there are some interviews with a few of those who have worked closely with her or are her close friends.
Unsurprisingly, the first episode focuses on Edward VIII’s abdication, Elizabeth’s marriage to Prince Philip and her father’s death. It comes timely for the latter, as George VI died on February 6, 1952.
Elizabeth: Our Queen premieres at 9pm on Channel 5
#5. Ben Fogle: Return to the Wild Picks Back Up with the Twins
Ben Fogle visited Bob and Bill Stone three years ago. The two live in the hills, where they remain off the grid as much as possible. They are ready for the end of the world, whenever that may be, and grow all their own veg.
Ben Fogle: Return to the Wild does exactly as the title sounds. It puts Ben back with the twins and sees where they are now. Bob is now married and no longer at the ranch, leaving Bill to take care of it alone. This will be an interesting look at those who want to live off the grid themselves.
Catch the documentary at 9pm on Channel 5
