Treasure Island tops the bill on Sky Thursdays this week, with the swashbuckling pirate adventure airing on Freeview Channel 11 at 7pm.

Emmy Award winner Eddie Izzard leads the cast as Long John Silver, with Elijah Wood and Donald Sutherland providing able support in this glitzy production.

A host of top British TV talent also feature, including Philip Glenister, Rupert Penry-Jones, Daniel Mays and Keith Allen.

Toby Regbo plays the protagonist Jim Hawkins in this 2012 made-for-TV movie, based on the classic Robert Louis Stevenson novel.

Following Treasure Island at 9pm on the Sky Thursdays line-up is Stella - a UK comedy drama written by and starring Ruth Jones, who made her name in Gavin & Stacey.

The popular series follows the exploits of Stella, a 40-something mum living in the Welsh Valleys.

And at 10pm, Freeview users are able to get a taste of Sky's gripping historical thriller The Borgias.

Jeremy Irons stars as the head of history's most notorious family in this fascinating tale of lust, corruption and murder.

Every Thursday from 7pm, Sky is giving non-subscribers the chance to sample some of its best pay-TV content on a one-off basis.

Sky Thursdays takes place on Freeview Channel 11, but programmes can also be viewed on Virgin Media channel 180, freesat channel 144 and Sky channel 152.

The promotion is running every week until Thursday April 11th 2013.

"Make a date with Sky Thursdays and enjoy Sky TV for free," the broadband provider urges.
