Egypt's Lost Queens; Talk to the Animals; John Bishop's Australia

Egypt's Lost Queens was a one off programme presented by Joann Fletcher about four influential women in Ancient Egyptian history. Of the women she picked to focus on there were two who wielded power in their own right, and two who were mothers and/or wives of Pharaohs. Fletcher didn't just go the easy route of picking all the "obvious" ones - i.e. no Nefertiti, no Cleopatra - instead she covered Hetepheres, Hatshepsut (who does count as an obvious choice), Nefertari (ditto) and Arsinoe.
