NOVEMBER HIGHLIGHTS: HEROIC HEROES MONTH

BBC AMERICA honors Heroic Heroes this month with a two-day, four-movie display of bravery. The heroics begin on Saturday, with Robin Hood boldly stealing from the rich and giving to Nottingham's poor in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. After that, Clive Owen takes his turn as the title character in the BBC AMERICA premiere of King Arthur, and Sir Patrick Stewart tackles the lofty mission of saving planet Earth in Star Trek Nemesis. Finally, Jude Law must stop a world domination plot in the BBC AMERICA premiere of the groundbreaking sci-fi action flick Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.

KING ARTHUR - BBC AMERICA PREMIERE

Clive Owen and Keira Knightley star in this historically-based telling of the timeless legend, hailed as the most realistic portrayal of King Arthur ever seen on screen. In this version, Arthur and his fellow Knights of the Round Table are actually warriors from the Middle East fighting for the Roman Empire in Britain. After fifteen years in the Army, the Knights are promised their freedom if they can complete one final and extremely dangerous mission. King Arthur premieres Saturday, November 6, 5:00p.m. ET/PT.

SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW - BBC AMERICA PREMIERE

Jude Law, Michael Gambon, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Angelina Jolie highlight a star-studded cast in this groundbreaking sci-fi action movie. When a reporter in New York City (Paltrow) discovers a connection between a giant robot attack on her city and a series of kidnappings of scientists around the world, she employs the help of her ex-boyfriend, Sky Captain Joe Sullivan (Law), the leader of a roguish independent air force, to help her track down the mastermind behind these events and foil his fiendish plans for world domination. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow premieres Sunday, November 7, 4:30p.m. ET/PT.

ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES

A classic adventure film starring Alan Rickman, Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman re-tells the story of Robin Hood and the outlaws. After escaping prison in Jerusalem, Robin Hood (Kevin Costner) makes his way back to England where he discovers his father has been killed by the Sheriff of Nottingham (Alan Rickman). With his home in shambles and his people oppressed, Robin takes command of a band of outlaws to take on the evil Sheriff. Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves airs Saturday, November 6, 2:00p.m. ET/PT.

STAR TREK NEMESIS

The tenth film in the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek Nemesis follows the mission of the USS Enterprise as they are confronted by threats of a Remen named Shinzon (Tom Hardy), who is actually a clone of Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart), stages a military coup and seizes control of the Romulan Empire. Sent to Romulus on a rare diplomatic mission, the crew of the Enterprise soon discovers Shinzon's real goals - capturing Captain Picard to harvest his genetic material, thus giving him enough strength to conquer the universe. Star Trek Nemesis airs Saturday, November 6, 7:30p.m. ET/PT.

MOVIES:

THE PRESTIGE - BBC AMERICA PREMIERE

Christian Bale, Michael Caine, David Bowie, Hugh Jackman, and Scarlett Johannson all star in this thrilling mystery from writer/director Christopher Nolan (�Inception,� �The Dark Knight�). Bale and Jackman play rival magicians in late-nineteenth century London, whose lifelong rivalry turns so intense it has murderous consequences, placing everyone they know in grave danger.

The Prestige premieres Thursday, November 4, 9:00p.m. ET/PT.

BBC EARTH SUNDAY

Tune in for BBC Earth programming on Sunday evening, including premieres that take a look at some of the scariest creatures and environments around:

LIFE IN THE FREEZER: FOOTSTEPS IN THE SNOW - BBC AMERICA PREMIERE

Survival in the Antarctic is extremely difficult - not just for animals but for humans, too. From early exploration and exploitation of the continent up through existing research stations and tourism, human activity has long been a severe challenge on this most inhospitable continent. Life In the Freezer: Footsteps in the Snow premieres Sunday, November 14, 7:00p.m. ET/PT.

ANIMALS: INSIDE THE WOMB - BBC AMERICA PREMIERE

Unravel the mysteries of animal reproduction from courtship and mating up to the miracle of birth. Through computer-generated images, enter the virtual world of the elephant womb to discover a calf's development over its 22-month gestation period - the longest pregnancy in the mammal world. Go inside the emperor penguin's life support capsule to see how the chick grows, and witness a total metamorphosis as a land-based caterpillar becomes an airborne moth. Animals: Inside the Womb premieres Sunday, November 21, 5:00p.m. ET/PT.

STUNTS:

EXTRA WHO MARATHON

You think you've seen all the Doctor Who there is to see? Think again. This Saturday, BBC AMERICA brings you a marathon of every single episode from the most recent season of the show plus exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the newly-released DVD box set. Short of catching a ride somewhere on the TARDIS, this is the most Doctor Who you could get. Extra Who Marathon airs all day Saturday, November 13.

LUTHER MARATHON

Idris Elba (The Wire) is John Luther, an intellectually brilliant but emotionally impulsive detective tormented by the darker side of humanity. Starting at noon on Sunday, catch up on the first five episodes of Luther to prepare for the thrilling season finale that night at 10:00p.m. As he tracks down serial killers and sociopaths, the stakes grow ever higher and more personal for Detective John Luther. How long can he walk the edge before he plunges into darkness? Luther Marathon airs Sunday, November 21, starting at 12:00p.m. ET/PT.

TREKSGIVING

When you count the many blessings you're thankful for this year, be sure to remember Star Trek: The Next Generation on BBC AMERICA. All Thanksgiving Day, we're giving you episode after episode of the hit-sci-fi series that no doubt helped a certain Patrick Stewart add a �Sir� to his name. So do as the Pilgrims did and hop on board a ship to faraway worlds - just make sure that ship is called the Enterprise� and not the Mayflower. Treksgiving airs all day Thursday, November 25.

Mondays: Top Gear

Tuesdays: Come Dine With Me
