Freeview TV users have the chance to enjoy four different Sky productions tonight on Channel 11.

The British, Blue Bloods, An Idiot Abroad 2 and The Borgias will air tonight (Thursday February 28th) as part of the latest Sky Thursdays promotion.

Blue Bloods - which is on at 8pm - is the new US police drama starring Magnum PI himself, Tom Selleck, as New York City Police Commissioner Frank Reagan.

The show tells the tale of a multi-generational clan of law enforcers - featuring Reagan's former police chief father Henry (Len Cariou), eldest son and detective Danny (Donnie Wahlberg), daughter and assistant District Attorney Linda (Bridget Moynahan) and youngest son and rookie cop Jamie (Will Estes).

Tonight's episode is the series pilot, which originally aired in the US in 2010. There have since been three seasons of Blue Bloods and a total of 59 episodes.

Before the action gets underway in New York, Sky Thursdays is giving viewers the chance to enjoy an episode of sumptuous documentary The British at 7pm.

The series tells the ultimate story of our nation, interweaving CGI, dramatic re-enactments and testimonies from famous Britons.

Beginning with the invasion of the Romans, the series explores the highs and lows of Britain over more than 2,000 years of struggle and success.

A number of star names appear in the series, including the likes of Helen Mirren, Russell Brand and Meera Syal.

At 9pm, Freeview users get another chance to sample An Idiot Abroad 2, which follows the hapless Karl Pilkington on his global travels.

Comics Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant also appear in the popular series, setting Pilkington challenges in a different world location each week.

This week's Sky Thursdays line-up concludes with another episode of The Borgias, which tells the tale of the infamous medieval Italian dynasty.

Jeremy Irons stars as Pope Alexander VI, with François Arnaud as Cesare, Holliday Grainger as Lucrezia, David Oakes as Juan and Aidan Alexander as Gioffre Borgia.
