ABC1, 8.30pm

Depend­ing on your age, this is a trip down mem­ory lane or a fas­ci­nat­ing in­sight into not just The Bea­tles phe­nom­e­non, but also a time of sweep­ing cul­tural change in Aus­tralia. In Ade­laide 300,000 people – half the then- pop­u­la­tion of the city – turned out to wel­come them ( school­girls were sus­pended for ditch­ing classes to do so). There’s the story of Lon­don drum­mer Jimmy Ni­col – who tem­po­rar­ily re­placed a sick Ringo Starr on the tour – and an in­trigu­ing anec­dote from now Federal MP Bob Kat­ter – who in his uni days joined an at­tempted “egging” of the band as they ar­rived in Bris­bane.

TDT, 8.30pm

Sea­son 11 is near­ing its end and this week’s episode man­ages to com­bine a mil­i­tary court mar­tial, a mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion and the mys­te­ri­ous dis­ap­pear­ance of a key wit­ness while spi­ralling into a heart- tug­ging study of home­less war vet­er­ans. Even the usu­ally tac­i­turn Gibbs ( Mark Har­mon, pic­tured) drops his guard. Less sur­pris­ing but no less emo­tional are the at­tempts of Abby ( Pauley Per­rette) to help a home­less woman re­con­nect with her fam­ily.
