If you watch nothing else this week – and there is quite a bit on, what with Flood anniversary pieces and the Cricket and Tennis and so forth – tune on Thursday night to see Kevin Costner and Andy Garcia’s first ever film performances, with ONE screening The Untouchables at 8:30pm. It’s brilliant, and Robert De Niro & Sean Connery’s performances only add to the drama. Spectacular film score from Ennio Morricone… it’s my favourite film of all time. ENJOY!

A great start to the week with SBS one screening the first of a three part documentary series Once Upon A Time In Cabramatta. An amazing look at how a large migrant group settled, struggled and eventually took hold of their community for the better.
A repeat of what started 2011 for Ch8 in Underbelly Files: Tell Them Lucifer Was Here, and well worth watching again, if only for Todd Lassance’s performance.
24 Hours In Emergency is an amazing series – watching one of the busiest emergency wards in the UK deal with all sorts of cases and people: intense and humane.
After much promotion, The Graham Norton Show finally starts on Channel 10 this week. Just sayin’.
