What’s happening, what’s on and what’s interesting this week …

One more day until the election and UNC-TV is here to help. Tonight at 10, Frontline presents an encore presentation of The Choice. Tuesday night at 8, PBS Newshour brings you complete coverage and up-to-the-minute results of Election Night 2016.

Doctor Strange is the #1 movie in cinemas and that means Benedict Cumberbatch is box office boffo! Marvel’s Master of the Mystic Arts took in nearly $85 million in its opening weekend. And the Sherlock star even hosted Saturday Night Live.

High Point University President Dr. Nido Qubein speaks with former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. Tune in Thursday night at 10 on UNC-TV.

Radio is not usually a visual medium but check out YouTube video of Poldark‘s Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson on The BBC Radio1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw.

Friday night on UNC-TV, the PBS Arts Festival continues with London’s hit revival of the Jule Styne and Stephen Sondheim’s classic musical Gypsy. Imelda Staunton (Is It Legal?) is the indomitable Momma Rose. Peter Davison (Doctor Who) and Lara Pulver (Sherlock) co-star.

And do you want to meet Benedict Cumberbatch’s feline namesake? Of course you do. Benedict Cumbercat is one sweet cat daddy!

Now, it’s birthday time. See who’s celebrating this week.
