[A clip from the beginning of episode 3, series 1 of Sherlock, “The Great Game.” The video opens with a black screen and a variation of the Sherlock theme music. White text appears at the bottom of the screen reading “Minsk, Belarus.” The text disappears and the shot pans around a wall into a large, mostly-empty prison visiting room. Sherlock and an inmate in orange prison garb sit across from each other at one of the tables.]
Sherlock: Just tell me what happened from the beginning.
Inmate: We had been to a bar, a nice place, and I got chattin’ with one of the waitresses, and Karen weren’t happy with that, so…we get back to the hotel, we end up having a bit of a ding-dong, don’t we?
Sherlock sighs loudly.
Inmate: She’s always getting at me, saying I weren’t a real man.
Sherlock: Wasn’t a real man.
Sherlock: It’s not weren’t, it’s wasn’t.
Sherlock, exasperated: Go on.
Inmate: Well… then I don’t know how it happened, but suddenly there’s a knife in my hands. And, you know, me old man was a butcher, so I know how to handle knives. He learned us how to cut up a beast—
Sherlock: Taught you how to cut up a beast.
Inmate: Yeah, well, then I done it.
Sherlock: Did it.
Inmate: Did it! STABBED her, over and over and over, and I looked down, and she weren’t—
Sherlock sighs and looks away.
Inmate: …wasn’t…moving no more.
Sherlock rolls his eyes and looks away.
Inmate: Any more. God help me, I dunno how it happened, but it was an accident, I swear.
Sherlock stands and starts to walk away.
Inmate: Hey, you’ve got to help me, Mr Holmes! Everyone says you’re the best. Without you, I’ll get hung for this.
Sherlock: No, no, Mr. Bewick; not at all. Hanged, yes.
[Sherlock walks away as the theme music variation starts up again.]

2 plots and a lot of excitement!
In 1965, Peter Joseph "Peejoe" Bullis lives in a small town in Alabama during the height of the Civil Rights Movement. He becomes involved with a group of black students protesting the town's racially segregated municipal swimming pool, leading to a protest that explodes into deadly violence. A young black boy, Taylor Jackson, is killed by the town sheriff. Peejoe, the only witness, is pressured by the sheriff to keep it quiet. However, Peejoe has learned from the example of his free-spirited Aunt Lucille Vinson, who has killed her abusive husband and is headed for Hollywood, where she is convinced that television stardom awaits her.
Lucille takes her husband's head everywhere she goes in a black hat box and looks forward to Hollywood promises. When the head is discovered by the hostess of a party, Lucille tries to get rid of the head by throwing it off the Golden Gate Bridge. Two policemen, thinking she is about to jump over herself, open the hat box and discover the head inside. She is arrested and escorted back to Alabama for her trial, where she is given a warm welcome by her town.

"In 1921 Jimmy Gralton’s sin was to build a dance hall on a rural crossroads in an Ireland on the brink of Civil War. The Pearse-Connolly Hall was a place where young people could come to learn, to argue, to dream…but above all to dance and have fun. As the hall grew in popularity its socialist and free-spirited reputation brought it to the attention of the church and politicians who forced Jimmy to flee and the hall to close. A decade later, at the height of the Depression, Jimmy returns to Co. Leitrim from the US to look after his mother and vows to live the quiet life. The hall stands abandoned and empty, and despite the pleas of the local youngsters, remains shut. However as Jimmy reintegrates into the community and sees the poverty, and growing cultural oppression, the leader and activist within him is stirred. He makes the decision to reopen the hall in the face of what they may bring…"
