8PM, T E N

To cel­e­brate Aus­tralia Day, Ten dusts off the Aussie episode of ModernFam­ily from last year. It’s a lit­tle bit clunky, with lots of gags about kan­ga­roos, but still worth a look. The fam­ily are Down Un­der after Phil dis­cov­ers he was con­ceived here and de­cides to con­nect with his (ten­u­ous) roots. Watch out for fa­mil­iar faces in­clud­ing Rhys Darby ( Flightofthe Con­chords), Peter Phelps and Jye Wil­liams.


COAST AUS­TRALIA 6. 3 0PM, HI STORY Tonight, Neil Oliver and his team take a look at north­ern New South Wales, trav­el­ling from By­ron Bay to South West Rocks. The most fas­ci­nat­ing tale is of the almost for­got­ten 1973 jour­ney of 12 men on three balsa wood rafts from Ecuador to Bal­lina, the long­est non-stop raft jour­ney ever recorded. Nav­i­ga­tor Hugo Be­cerra is taken back to his raft for the first time in 30 years.


SOUNDS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT: IRIT: TRIPLE J AT 40 8. 3 0PM, ABC2 This doco aired on Jan­uary 19, the Js’ of­fi­cial birth­day, but it’s well worth a pa­tri­otic catchup tonight if you missed it. Missy ssy Hig­gins de­clares that Triple J “gave birthth to me” and Roy and HG re­call that “the kid­dies­dies like adults be­ing silly, and we were very silly”. It fea­tures a who’s who of Aussie mu­sic, from Peter Gar­rett to Daniel Johns (right).
