The Buddha

Tuesday, August 26 at 8 p.m.

Two-and-a-half millennia ago, a new religion was born in northern India, generated from the ideas of a single man, the Buddha, a mysterious Indian sage who famously gained enlightenment while he sat under a large, shapely fig tree.  The Buddha never claimed to be God or his emissary on earth.  He said only that he was a human being who, in a world of unavoidable pain and suffering, had found a kind of serenity that other could find too.

David Suchet ("Henry VIII," "The Way We Live Now") returns in his signature role as suave Belgian super sleuth Hercule Poirot in two new mysteries, "The Big Four" and "Dead Man's Folly," based on the novels by Agatha Christie. Whether he's on holiday abroad, taking a countryside break or simply going about his business near his central London home, Poirot finds himself exercising his "little grey cells" by helping police investigate crimes and murders, whether they ask for his help or not. Adapted by Mark Gatiss ("Sherlock"), "The Big Four" plunges Poirot into a world of global espionage, set against the backdrop of the impending WWII. The public is in a panic after the shocking death of a Russian chess grandmaster, and Poirot must navigate international figures and intrigue to identify the culprit, with the help of old friends Captain Hastings, Inspector Japp and Miss Lemon.

Saturday, August 30 at 8 p.m.

Sherlock Holmes stalks again in a thrilling contemporary version of the Victorian-era whodunits.  When an unidentified woman, dressed all in pink, turns up murdered in an abandoned building, Sherlock must use the science of deduction to catch the killer.
