[via press release from BBC America]

BBC AMERICA'S NEW PROGRAMS FOR NOVEMBER

-U.S. Premiere of BAFTA-winning drama Britz �

BRITZ � U.S. PREMIERE

From multi-award winning writer and director Peter Kosminsky (Peacekeepers, The Government Inspector) comes the controversial, BAFTA-winning thriller, Britz which will air on BBC AMERICA over two consecutive nights. Britz follows two young British Muslims who are torn in radically different directions by their personal experiences in post-9/11 Britain. Sohail and Nasima are brother and sister. Sohail is an ambitious law undergraduate whose desire to assimilate into every aspect of contemporary British culture drives him to join MI-5, where he investigates domestic terrorists. Nasima, a medical student, feels like an outsider in British society and is suspicious of the British establishment. She spends much of her time campaigning against government policies, but is ultimately driven down a more radical road. Each part of this gritty and unflinching drama focuses on one sibling's story, culminating in a shocking finale when their paths cross for one final time.

Britz Part One premieres Sunday, November 30 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT and Britz Part Two premieres on Monday, December 1 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.

DOCTOR WHO � BBC AMERICA PREMIERE

David Tennant returns as The Doctor for an all new series of adventures through time and space, and this time he's got a new, but familiar sidekick. Sketch comedian extraordinaire Catherine Tate returns to the TARDIS to reprise her role of Donna Noble, the Doctor's companion from last year's Runaway Bride special. Reunited, the Doctor and Donna take on the universe, in places as far away as ancient Pompeii and the home planet of the sinister Ood. Plus, former sidekicks Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, and Captain Jack Harkness get involved when the Doctor's oldest enemy returns for revenge.

Doctor Who Season Four premieres Saturday, November 8 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT

STUNTS

REVEALING SUNDAY

All last month, BBC AMERICA shocked and entertained viewers with a series of BBC Reveals documentaries, exploring the unexpected and fascinating people that make up modern Britain. No subject is too outlandish or real: women who care for fake babies, young men in love with women thirty to forty years older than them, young women in love with their brothers, and that's just the beginning. Now is your chance to catch these gripping stories in one place for the first time.

Revealing Sunday airs Sunday, November 2 at 3:00 p.m. ET/ 12:00 p.m. PT

When Dragons Attack

If you have a good idea, you had better be ready to defend it because the Dragons are breathing fire this week. Tune in to see four episodes of Dragons' Den back-to-back. Five successful British and American entrepreneurs and business leaders will grant their money and support to everyday people with big inventions and business ideas�but only if they really like them. Whose ambitions will be realized, and whose dreams will be crushed?

When Dragons Attack airs Sunday, November 9 at 2:30 p.m. ET/ 11:30 a.m. PT

Sunday at the Movies- LAYER CAKE AND OXFORD BLUES

Tune in for a double feature of British cinema. First up, it's James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, starring in Layer Cake, the tale of a successful cocaine dealer among England's Mafia elite who is planning an early exit from the business � if his boss will let him. After that, Rob Lowe washes up on shore as an American hustler who chases the girl of his dreams all the way from the glitz of Las Vegas to the ancient halls of Oxford, in the classic �80s film Oxford Blues.

Sunday At The Movies airs Sunday, November 16 at 2:00 p.m. ET/ 11:00 a.m. PT

How Clean Is Your House Marathon

Getting nervous about having guests over for the holidays? Trust us, your place can't possibly be worse than what you'll see on BBC AMERICA this Sunday afternoon. Dust off your TV and remote control and tune in for three hours of Britain's dirtiest, dingiest, nastiest, and most foul-smelling abodes. It's a six-episode marathon of How Clean Is Your House?, the cringe-inducing show that sets dust-busting divas Kim Woodburn and Aggie MacKenzie on some of the most disgusting and disorganized homes you've ever seen.

How Clean Is Your House Marathon airs Sunday, November 13 at 3:00 p.m. ET/ 12:00 p.m. PT

Gavin & Stacey: The Whole Story

Missed any of BBC AMERICA's newest comedy hit, Gavin & Stacey, or just want to relive every laugh-filled moment? Well, switch off that parade and tune into BBC AMERICA for a marathon of the entire charming series on Thanksgiving Day. Gavin is an ordinary boy from England and Stacey is an ordinary girl from Wales, but when they fall in love and their worlds come together, we see that there's really no such thing as ordinary after all.

Gavin & Stacey: The Whole Story airs Thursday, November 27, starting at 10:20 a.m. ET/PT

Thanksgiving Python

Now that your Thanksgiving turkey feast is behind you, it's time to tuck into a heaping portion of Python � Monty Python, that is.
