I’m planning on watching Planet Dinosaur, Great Rift: Africa’s Wild and Blindsight

It’s the carnivore episode of Planet Dinosaur (TV One, 7pm), which no doubt means we’ll get a good look at the T-Rex! (That’s what we’ve all been looking forward to, right?)

Great Rift: Africa’s Wild Heart (Prime, 7.30pm) looks like it will be an interesting documentary series. The first episode, screening tonight, is called ‘Fire’, and it looks at how life has adapted to the volcanic highlands bordering the Rift Valley.

We get a look at chameleons, buzzards, elephants, monkey beetles, mountain gorillas and we see the first professional footage of the kipunji, a rare primate discovered in 2005. Continue reading »

I’m planning on watching TVNZ7 all night

I feel a bit sad that today is the last day of TVNZ 7′s existence, so I will be having a TVNZ7 viewing night tonight.

I’ll be kicking off the night with Science of Summer and Winter at 7.05pm, which looks the science behind the season. Tonight’s episode is about winter, including, among other things, why snowflakes are white, how igloos work, and how salt de-ices the roads. Very topical right now!

After the last TVNZ News at 8, then it’s the Doco of the Week at 9.05pm. Tonight’s documentary is Dive, in which filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and his friends dumpster-dive in the back alleys of Los Angeles’ supermarkets and salvage thousands of dollars worth of good, edible food. Should be fascinating. Continue reading »

Kiwi comedy act The Boy With Tape on His Face (aka Sam Wills) has scored himself a new online comedy show for BBC in the UK.

He will produce a 28 minute show for the broadcaster, which will screen on the BBC iPlayer online alongside shows from six other comics.

On his website, he says that with his show he wanted to create something that combined surreal stand up comedy with sketches and a touch of music.

Let’s hope the actual fight between Jaime Ridge and Rosanna Arkle lives up to the war of words that has already begun.

The GC’s Arkle branded Ridge a “cheat” after it was alleged that Ridge had not lost the required weight for their boxing bout in July.

Arkle initially weighed in at 52kg and Ridge at 60kg, so the organisers asked both girls to respectively gain and lose weight in order to even up the fight. Continue reading »
