FX’s FEUD: Capote Vs. The Swans – April 17

Naomi Watts, Demi Moore, Chloë Sevigny and Tom Hollander star in this depiction of the real-life falling out between author Truman Capote and his high society friends.

Shock and fury ensued and Capote became a social pariah.

Secrets of the Octopus – April 22

The extraordinary octopi (octopuses? octopodes??) are arguably one of the planet’s strangest creatures: the eight-tentacled mollusc has three hearts, blue blood, squirts ink and can fit through miniscule holes. In National Geographic’s  latest ‘Secrets Of’ series, Oscar-winning director James Cameron heads underwater to shine a light on their mind-boggling habits, with narration from Paul Rudd.

Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story – April 26
