Herald Sun - Switched On - - Weekly Preview - TREVOR MCDON­ALD: MIGHTY MIS­SIS­SIPPI, SBS One, 7.35pm

FIRST stop tonight is Clarks­dale, Mis­sis­sippi. I thought we were go­ing to get some mu­sic chit chat, and we do, but not be­fore we go to Mor­gan Free­man’s house for a bit of a yarn

about things. Next stop is Mem­phis, Ten­nessee – an­other big mu­sic town. But also fa­mous for Martin Luther King’s mur­der. Then there’s a de­tour with an old girl­friend of Elvis’s, on the way to Mis­souri. The Mis­sis­sippi flooded at East Prairie last year and cov­ered more than 500sq km, but as one of the farm­ers says, the river’s go­ing to do what it’s go­ing to do.
