TV1 - CHANNEL HIGHLIGHTS
Week 05: Saturday 31st January 2015 - Friday 6th February, 2015
SATURDAY 31ST JANUARY, 4.30PM
Kiwi shark expert, Riley Elliot, finds himself delving into a political firestorm in the final episode of Shark Man on TV ONE this week.
There has been a spate of shark attacks off the beaches near Perth. In response the Western Australia State Government has put down drum lines to catch the sharks responsible.
Riley has been invited by concerned environmentalists to observe this shark cull in action.
What he finds is disturbing. In its first season the cull has killed over 40 Tiger sharks and not caught a single Great White – the sharks responsible for the attacks.
While in Perth, Riley looks at other viable and effective options available to local government. This begs the question, how has the government come to impose a policy that may not result in safer beaches?
SUNDAY, 1ST FEBRUARY, 9.30PM
Tony and Emily Hughes’ life changes forever when their 5 year-old son Oliver goes missing on a family holiday in France. Despite a vast manhunt being launched with one of France’s finest detectives at the helm, they face an uphill struggle in their mission to find the young boy – Oliver seems to have disappeared into thin air.
Eight years on from Oliver’s disappearance, Tony refuses to believe that Oliver is dead and doggedly continues his search to find his son. After years of searching, Tony is finally given new hope when a shred of evidence emerges. The French police detective who launched the initial search for the child also cannot shake the belief that he may still be alive.
A poignant narrative puzzle with twists and turns at every stage, the father’s exhaustive search fractures his marriage and threatens to destroy his life.
The Missing is a chilling, resonant and heart-breaking drama of a life consumed by hope and the conviction of love, loss and truth.

Every year, six million individuals are stalked in the USA. TV ONE’s brand new show Stalker is a psychological thriller about detectives who delve into the minds of these people to protect their targets from future incidents.
The detectives hail from the Threat Assessment Unit of the LAPD, investigating incidents from voyeurism and cyber harassment to romantic fixation. Heading the department is Lieutenant Beth Davis (Maggie Q), a strong and focused expert in her field who is driven by her own traumatic experience as a victim.
Joining her is a recent transfer from New York City’s homicide division Detective Jack Larsen (Dylan McDermott) whose confidence, strong personality and questionable behaviour has landed him in trouble before.
Together with the rest of the team, the members of the Threat Assessment Unit must decipher the severity of cases and respond accordingly before the stalking and intimidation spirals out of control, all while trying to keep their personal obsessions at bay.
