It’s launch week. It’s January. So, no sharing the love and stress of such events with like-minded buddies in the office. Instead, it’s a weird dichotomy of a high-speed roller-coaster ride – but from the comfort of my front room/office.  

Our talented 50-plus We Are England team (as the Ronseal name alludes to) spans the whole of England, from Newcastle to Leeds, Birmingham to Norwich and London to Bristol. Lockdown working practices have been the unanticipated saviours of our schedule and sanity.

Created and written by Chris Brandon, the new six-part series will see the return of James Nesbitt as the lead character DCI Tom Brannick. 

Nesbitt will be joined by Victoria Smurfit, who plays Olivia, an enigmatic widow who is at the heart of Brannick’s latest case, but looks may deceive, as Smurfit’s intentions aren’t as innocent as they seem.

At the end of the last series, the identity of legendary assassin Goliath was shockingly revealed to be Brannick.

The landmark documentary will show minute by minute what happened to the dinosaurs when the asteroid hit Earth and led to their demise. 

There is plenty of evidence relating to when the asteroid hit the Earth at the end of Late Cretaceous period 66 million years ago, but there is no direct evidence that confirms how it killed the dinosaurs.

A new dig site of a prehistoric graveyard known as Tanis, hidden in the low hills of North Dakota, has fossilised creatures dating back to the end of the Late Cretaceous buried under a layer of rock.
