* Tony Robinson's "Walking Through History" series on SBS. Just finished, I think. He makes history very accessible, and is a charming guide. I see that at least a few episodes are on Youtube.
* Brian Cox's Human Universe: OK, I'm late to the party on this one, as it finished at least a month ago. It was a bit, I don't know, vaguely New Age mushy in parts, but it was a really stunning looking show that looked a million bucks, as they say. And it did take us to some unusual places and was, for the most part, quite interesting.
* Some other show on lately that I can't think of now - will come back later.
Oh, that's right: the doco "Inside the Commons" about the British Parliament. A fantastic, inside look at how their Parliament works.
Something I haven't enjoyed on TV lately:
The new version of The Odd Couple. Terrible acting in an old idea that makes all the participants look like embarrassing, incompetent imitators rather than actors.
