Sunday night dramas are back!


The third season of Call the Midwife premieres at 8pm Sunday, March 30, on CET and ThinkTV16. This program, based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth, tells colorful stories of midwifery and families in London’s East End. The third season takes viewers to 1959, the eve of the Swinging Sixties. The winds of change are sweeping through the country and the residents of Nonnatus House face some momentous changes of their own.


In the first episode of the season, the nuns and midwives of Nonnatus House move into their new premises, and Sister Winifred, a warm-hearted, slightly innocent young woman, arrives from the Mother House. Sister Monica Joan's increasingly eccentric behavior causes concern, yet she's the one who solves a perplexing medical mystery. New housewife and mother Chummy spearheads an Open Day at the Community Centre and, after helping to deliver a neighbor's baby, she decides she wants to return to midwifery.


Here's a quick preview: 


Mr. Selfridge, which airs at 9pm on Sundays, will premiere its second season on March 30 on ThinkTV16 and CET.  In this season, Jeremy Piven (Entourage) reprises his role as London’s retail king, Harry Gordon Selfridge, for the show that has been hailed as “addicting” by The Wall Street Journal. Created by Emmy Award-winning writer Andrew Davies, Mr. Selfridge, Season 2 costars Frances O’Connor, Aisling Loftus, Amanda Abbington and Ron Cook. In the first episode of the season, Rose returns from America for the store’s fifth anniversary, Agnes returns from training in Paris and Lord Loxley returns to torture Lady Mae.
