A world upside down

Prison Break Season 4 airs every Monday to Thursday at 10 pm on Star World.  After engineering a daring escape from the hellish Panamanian prison Sona in the previous seasons, brothers Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) are determined to seek justice against The Company, the shadowy group responsible for destroying their lives and killing the woman Michael loves, Dr Sara Tancerdi (Sarah Wayne Callies).

Michael’s quest for vengeance leads him to Los Angeles, where his world is turned upside down when company operative Gretchen/Susan B Anthony (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) informs him that Sara is still alive. Realising the only way they will truly be free, Michael and Lincoln avow to find Sara and take down The Company by stealing the organisation’s black book. Unfortunately for the brothers, they must also evade The Company assassin WYATT (Cress Williams) and find an on-the-loose T-BAG (Robert Knepper), who unknowingly possesses a vital clue to help them. 

Extreme survival skills

Adventurer Bear Grylls uses his military training and daring spirit to demonstrate extreme survival skills — from escaping down the side of an active volcano to scavenging for local, sometimes deadly delicacies.

Bear shows the viewers how to survive the toughest and most visited environments on the planet by putting himself in the position of a stranded tourist. He parachutes into rainforests, abseils into deserts and lakes, and onto the highest, most inhospitable peaks in America.

Using his specialist survival techniques to find his way out of these wildernesses he climbs sheer cliffs, navigates white water and icy crevasses, encounters snakes, spiders and predators and forages for food, from maggots and raw fish, to roots and berries. Man Vs Wild airs on May 4 at 9 pm on Discovery Channel.

A peek into messy affairs

Wild Weddings airs on May 4 at 8 pm on Discovery Travel and Living.
The programme brings the most amusing, out-of-control moments of the big day that goes off the planned track.

The horror and disbelief when a hundred guests stare in amazement at a wedding that’s nothing short of wild. Watch in amazement as the bride and the groom kick off their married life with a cake fight, at the time of ‘I Do’. Gasp in shock as the bride gets a proposal of love — but not from the groom. Wonder what the bridesmaid was thinking when she so messes up with her speech.

Fighting a monster

HBO presents Beyond Loch Ness on May 4 at 9 pm starring Niall Matter, Brian Krause and Don Davis. A strange beast emerges in Lake Superior, believed to be the Loch Ness monster.

The gruesome bloodshed to follow doesn’t stop at Nessie; she has brought her vicious offspring to help terrorise the townspeople living around the lake.
Driven by vengeance, cryptozoologist James Murphy hunts down the monsters. Will Murphy save the locals or end up as one of Nessie’s meals?
