BBC America - March Highlights

MODERN MONARCHY: DOS & DON'TS

As more details are revealed about the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton each day, the fascination with this modern monarchy continues to grow. In the months leading up to the big day on April 29, BBC AMERICA, the home of the Royal Wedding, is the go-to-spot for all things related to the Prince and his soon-to-be Princess. Hot on the heels of William & Kate: Modern Monarchy and Modern Monarchy: Here & There comes an all new BBC World News America produced Royal Special this month, Modern Monarchy: Dos & Don'ts.

BBC AMERICA REVEALS... LOUIS THEROUX

Meet Louis Theroux, one of Britain's most revealing and unique documentary makers, the newest addition to the BBC AMERICA Reveals line-up. From �lifers' behind bars in California's San Quentin Prison, to wealthy Americans killing game in South Africa, and private security firms profiting from lawlessness in Johannesburg, these all new documentaries showcase Theroux at his best. With his trademark low-key but tenacious style he illicits candid and controversial responses, holding a mirror up to the behavior and attitudes he encounters. Titles include Louis Theroux: Behind Bars, Louis Theroux: Johannesburg, Louis Theroux: African Hunting Holiday. The BBC AMERICA Reveals... Louis Theroux documentary series starts Tuesday, March 1, 10:00p.m. ET/PT.

JAMES MAY'S ROAD TRIP

Top Gear's James May hits the road with wine connoisseur Oz Clarke on a vineyard tour of epic proportions. Traveling in James's Jaguar XJS throughout France and in a 42-foot monster motor home up and down the California coast, the two are committed to finding the most beautifully boozy grape regions in the Old and New Worlds. Can Oz, a committed Francophile, teach James, the overgrown boy racer and beer drinker, some wine appreciation? James May's Road Trip premieres Monday, March 21, 10:20p.m. ET/PT.

THE OXFORD & CAMBRIDGE BOAT RACE (LIVE)

Join BBC AMERICA for live coverage of the world-renowned rowing race between the Oxford University Boat Club and the Cambridge University Boat Club on the River Thames in London. The idea for the race came from two friends - Charles Merivale, a student at Cambridge, and his school friend Charles Wordsworth (nephew of the poet William Wordsworth), who was at Oxford. In March 1829, Cambridge sent a challenge to Oxford and thus the tradition was born which has continued to the present day, where the loser of the previous year's race challenges the opposition to a re-match. The Modern Boat Race still runs along the same lines but has now become a major international sporting occasion drawing millions of viewers from around the world. The Oxford & Cambridge Boat Race premieres Saturday, March 26, 12:30p.m. ET/PT.
