MASTERCHEF NEW ZEALAND
SUNDAY 02 JUNE, 7.30PM
Over the past 16 weeks, the MasterChef New Zealand contestants have stirred, seared and sweated their way through each challenge. Tonight, it comes down to two. To claim the ultimate prize, our contestants face not one, not two but four epic challenges. The two-hour finale starts with a taste test set by Ray McVinnie himself, before contestants begin creating a three-course menu. Overseeing the entree is the godfather of New Zealand fine dining, Tony Astle. Then, the contestants must replicate a complicated main from Australian culinary legend and host of MasterChef Australia, George Calombaris. And finally, the Top Two will attempt a fiendishly hard dessert known as 'The Croquembouche Mark II'.
Our finalists have fought hard to be standing here, but who has what it takes to go all the way and become New Zealand's next MasterChef?

Capturing the compelling around-the-clock drama of the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney, this episode of RPA will bring more stories of courage, heartache, joy and hope as extraordinarily brave people faced a range of medical conditions.
DEATH ROW: INSIDE INDIANA STATE PRISON
TUESDAY 04 JUNE, 9.40PM
Inside Indiana State Prison, 12 men are waiting to be executed. In TV ONE's brand new series, iconic British newsreader Sir Trevor McDonald gains rare access to one of America’s oldest and most notorious maximum-security prisons.
Behind these prison walls is a forbiddingly dark and brutal world. Daily life on death row is one of gruelling monotony, where prisoners spend most of their days reflecting on their horrific crimes. Sir Trevor meets murdererers as they reflect on their lives and their deeds with blunt self-assessment. His commentary defines what it means to exist in the shadow of a death sentence.
FRIDAY 07 JUNE, 9.30 PM
This week, Alex is asked to inject some Northern Soul into a struggling Wigan hotel. The Hotel Inspector is called to the Bellingham in Wigan, run by 24 year old former burger van operator Richard Philips. Richard’s dad, local businessman Steve, took over the Bellingham last year, putting his inexperienced son in charge of restoring the once proud 33 bedroom Victorian hotel back to its former glory. But things haven’t been going according to plan. The rooms are past their sell-by date, retailing for just £25 per night, and Richard’s inspired idea to transform the hotel’s restaurant into the 'Wild West' themed Speedway Grill, crashed and burned. The awful décor and uninspired décor failed to fire up custom, forcing Richard to close its doors. Can the Hotel Inspector help the young manager turn things around, before this Wigan hotel falls off the pier?
