TO­DAY'S CHOICES

Mercury (Hobart) - - TELEVISION - Gar­den­ing Aus­tralia Royal Mur­der Mys­ter­ies

ABC, 6.30pm We can’t all have a glo­ri­ously big patch of land or a metic­u­lously ar­ranged oasis but we can in­dulge in our love of gar­den­ing, thanks to the pas­sion­ate team on Gar­den­ingAus­tralia. You may barely set foot on freshly aer­ated soil, but you’ll feel like you have after en­joy­ing the di­verse seg­ments in tonight’s show. Costa Ge­or­giadis (pic­tured) takes us to a sur­pris­ing city oasis, while Jane Ed­man­son vis­its a beau­ti­ful gar­den built in a harsh cli­mate. SBS, 7.35pm In this shock­ing and thrilling in­stal­ment of Roy­alMur­derMys­ter­ies, a case of bron­chi­tis is not what it seems. In “King Ge­orge V: Mercy or Mur­der”, the death of King Ge­orge V of Eng­land, on Jan­uary 20, 1936, is ex­am­ined. At the time, his doc­tor Lord Ber­trand Daw­son an­nounced he had suc­cumbed to bron­chi­tis, but the medico’s damn­ing di­ary hid the shock­ing ad­mis­sion that he had killed his monarch. You’d best to tune in to find out all the scan­dalous de­tails.
