THE MATING GAME
Some species need to overcome the challenges of a vast environment just to find a member of the opposite sex. Others find themselves pitched against their neighbours in mass mating aggregations. Some must impress with complex displays. Others build extraordinary structures just to prove their worth. One thing, however, connects them all – the drive to succeed at all costs. Exploring five different habitats across six continents, this series reveals the varied, fascinating and downright bizarre strategies different animals use to find and attract a mate. It is the ultimate inside view on what it takes to succeed at the mating game.
In this sharp new comedy drama, an unlikely group of lawbreakers are forced to work together in a community payback project.

When the group are unwittingly drawn into a dangerous criminal conspiracy, they must break down the barriers between them before they can fight for what’s right. Combining crime thriller and character study with humour and heart, The Outlaws is a story about finding common ground during divided times.
