Mira Royal Detective S1

Inspired by Indian culture and customs, this animated mystery series will take you and your little ones on an epic adventure while learning key life lessons. It follows a brave and resourceful girl named Mira and her many friends. Set in a fictional kingdom that resembles 19th-century India, Mira is the first commoner to be appointed as a royal detective for the queen. She travels all over Jalpur with her two mongoose BFFs, Mikku and Chikku, helping whenever she can. Mira is a wonderful role model with kindness, patience and deductive reasoning. Prominent South Asian actors also contribute to the series, with the likes of Jameela Jamil (The Good Place), Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire), Hannah Simone ( New Girl) and Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock) all providing recurring vocals. You’ll be even more enthralled once your read more about it here.

10 Things You Need to Know About the Future

Will a robot take your job? Is this the last generation that will experience death and ageing? And yes, when are we getting our flying cars (and what will they be powered by)? Using the latest data from scientific studies and trends, along with field expert interviews (and some surprise guests), mathematician Dr Hannah Fry looks ahead 30 years to predict what life might be like in 2050... if we survive global warming, the obesity epidemic, insect extinctions, the plastics pollution crisis and COVID-19. Don’t be deterred by the late-night timing, this is worth the PVR.
