For a show which has Wales running through every strand of its DNA, there are few things more Welsh about Torchwood than the lovely Eve Myles. Who better then to help us launch the SFX Weekender 3 as we move shop to Prestatyn in North Wales for the first time in 2012?

The Most Incredible Thing
The probable highlight of BBC4's current contemporary dance programming, The Most Incredible Thing, which premiered at Sadler's Wells in London earlier this year, is an adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story of the same name by playwright and director Matthew Dunster. It's soundtracked by the Pet Shop Boys and choreographed by Javier de Frutos – hitherto best known for the outrage generated by his show Eternal Damnation To Sancho And Sanchez, which struggled, at some performances, to be heard above a booing audience.

8pm, Nat Geo Wild
Though they might lack the ability to swear with such glorious conviction as Samuel L Jackson, Nat Geo Wild's intrepid band of python hunters – Shawn Heflick, Greg Graziani and Michael Cole – seem equally adept at getting those mutha fudgin' snakes off that mutha fudgin' plane. »
Susannah York, film star of the 1960s, has died aged 72. We look back over her career in clips
Susannah Yolande Fletcher was born in Chelsea in 1939. After growing up in Scotland and studying at Rada, she got her screen break in the Highland army drama Tunes of Glory (1960) and her first lead, as a teenager growing into her sexuality, in Lewis Gilbert's The Greengage Summer. She continued her association with frank subject matter opposite Montgomery Clift in Freud. A further boost came with 1963's Oscar-winning Tom Jones, in which York played the true love of Albert Finney's Tom. Although her Sophie was less bawdy than much of the movie, she still had fun, as the trailer shows.
York's career continued to thrive throughout the 1960s, with roles in Sands of the Kalahari, espionage adventures Kaleidoscope and Sebastian, and as Sir Thomas More's daughter in A Man for All Seasons »
