BBC AMERICA - SEPTEMBER HIGHLIGHTS

Guess who takes a spin around the Top Gear track this season?

Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz guest in the all-new U.S. Premiere season of Top Gear

TOP GEAR SEASON 15 - U.S. PREMIERE

The boys are back! Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May return with an all-new, U.S. premiere season of Top Gear. This season features the much anticipated episode with Hollywood mega-stars Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz in the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment. Tom and Cameron go head to head on the Top Gear track trying to get the fastest lap time in a Korean hatchback. As they both watch one another's lap, Jeremy compliments Cameron as "looking great in a helmet" and Tom boasts of driving the hatchback on two wheels. This episode reveals one of these A-list stars will have the fastest time of any celebrity to drive around the track so far this season.

And the boys have more fun and adventure as Jeremy goes on a quest to find out where all the three-wheeled cars have gone, James drives a pickup truck up an active volcano in Iceland and makes a rare visit to the Top Gear track to test the Porsche 911 Sport Classic and Boxster Spyder. Meanwhile, Richard gives an old Chevrolet Lacetti a dignified send off and the trio embarks on a road trip across the South of England. The ever popular Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment also features Hollywood actor Andy Garcia, Harry Potter star Rupert Grint, Formula One ace Rubens Barrichello and British journalist Alistair Campbell.

Top Gear premieres Monday, September 27, 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

BBC EARTH SUNDAY

Breathtaking natural history programming from BBC EARTH presents an afternoon of incredibly, colorful creatures every Sunday in September.

BRITAIN'S BIGGEST BEASTS - U.S. PREMIERE

Big mammals like moose, wolves and bears once roamed and hunted in the Scottish Highlands but now that deer and sheep have decimated the landscape for over the past 200 years, one man has a vision to restore the Scottish Highlights back to its natural state by building Britain's first wilderness game reserve. Paul Lister, owner the 25,000-acre Alladale estate in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, believes the introduction of these big predators is the natural way to restore the landscape and since buying the property has achieved a great deal by planting 80,000 new trees. But Paul knows the next stage is to introduce herbivores and Caledonian pine trees. Once the Highland has started to heal itself, other Scottish wildlife such as capercaillie (grouse), red squirrel, and osprey will be brought back. But the biggest challenge is getting the local farmers and other estate owners on his side. They have to be convinced that wolves and bears can once again roam the highlands without endangering their livelihoods.

Britain's Biggest Beasts premieres Sunday, September 12, 6:00 p.m. ET/3:00 p.m. PT

WOLF BATTLEFIELD - CHANNEL PREMIERE

The Rockies is home to one of North America's most successful packs of timber wolves and this documentary follows the Lone Pine pack as they run in their pack, hunt and bring down prey. However since losing a pup to a bear, the pack is smaller than its neighboring pack and they must find a way to appear bigger and stronger. If the wolves let down their guard, the bigger more powerful pack could invade their territory and take over which will make them an unsuspecting target to their biggest threat - the grizzly bear. Using airborne surveillance techniques, on-board miniature cameras, and a "prey-cam" they provide a unique prey's eye view of the hunt by examining this pack's stamina, stealth, reflexes and agility.

Wolf Battlefield airs Sunday, September 19, 7:00 p.m. ET/ 4:00 p.m. PT
