Following the news of a giant sea snail that may hold the key to stemming the coral bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef comes this report by Professor Emma Johnston, dean of science at the University of New South Wales. While politicians quibble about whether climate change exists and if it's really all our fault, Australian and international scientists are desperately trying to figure out whether anything can be done before it's too late. This is an in-depth look at this natural wonder.
SECRETS OF OUR CITIES
Greig Pickhaver (aka H.G. Nelson) again starts his historical view of an iconic Australian suburb at the very beginning, by inspecting rock engravings with Indigenous archaeologists behind Bondi beach. He then meets a relative of the "father of Australian theatre", Barnett Levey. One of the best things about this series is the oral history preserved. The daughter of a Greek milk-bar pioneer, a World War II ammunition maker, and fashion designer Jenny Kee are among those with priceless memories.
Alice Vaughan (Mireille Enos) may be a talented private eye with an enviable wardrobe but she has an irritating tendency to slur, especially when she's being sexy. Tonight, she's torn between two lovers when a former flame turns up with his new lady with the same swishy auburn hair curtain as his ex. Meanwhile, a far more gripping scenario plays out with her business partner, Justine (Gina Torres), and her hostage husband; while wicked Margot (Sonya Walger) has a lesbian fling.
