POL­I­TICS HOWARD ON MEN­ZIES: BUILD­ING MOD­ERN AUS­TRALIA 7.40PM, ABC

Robert (Bob) Men­zies is Aus­tralia’s long­est-serv­ing prime min­is­ter but his legacy is dis­puted. Former prime min­is­ter John Howard, an unashamed ad­mirer, pon­ders Men­zies’ place in his­tory in this com­pelling two-part se­ries. To Howard’s credit, he is happy to be chal­lenged on his be­liefs by oth­ers, in­clud­ing Bob Hawke, Clive James, Barry Humphries and Thomas Ke­neally.

DOCO OBAMA: EIGHT YEARS OF POWER 8.35PM, SBS

Did any US Pres­i­dent come to power with as many ex­pec­ta­tions as Bar­rack Obama? The first African Amer­i­can Pres­i­dent seemed more saviour than politi­cian when he took of­fice in 2009. “You and I are go­ing to change this coun­try and we’ll change the world,” Obama spruiked. This four-part se­ries shows how eco­nomic col­lapse, a fierce Repub­li­can op­po­si­tion and the pop­ulist Tea Party de­railed those plans.

HIS­TORY THE CELTS 7.30PM, SBS

The Celts have an al­most mythic rep­u­ta­tion but what do we re­ally know about this an­cient tribe? An­thro­pol­o­gist Alice Roberts and ar­chae­ol­o­gist Neil Oliver (Vik­ings) are out to tell the real story in this three-part se­ries.
