DRAMA BAN­SHEE

7. 3 0PM, FOX8

Sea­son three picks up where we left off – with plenty of need­less vi­o­lence fol­lowed by graphic sex … all in the open­ing min­utes. Crim­i­nal­pre­tend­ing-to-be-sher­iff Lu­cas Hood (Antony Starr, above) ex­e­cutes a neo-Nazi, has a heart-to­heart with the girl who’s just dis­cov­ered she’s his daugh­ter and shoots at a na­tive Amer­i­can who’s tak­ing on a con­voy armed with a bow and ar­row.

SCI-FI

HELIX 6. 3 0PM, FOX8 No one felt sick “at first”, says a sur­vivor of Helix’s lat­est out­break. “But on the third day, the scream­ing started.” Last sea­son the team bat­tled a vi­ral out­break in an Arc­tic base that turned suf­fer­ers into weird zom­bie-like crea­tures. This sea­son is com­pletely dif­fer­ent: it’s set on an is­land where a fun­gal in­fec­tion ap­par­ently turns suf­fer­ers into vi­o­lent zom­bie-like crea­tures.

DOCO

SATUR­DAY NIGHT AT THE MOVIES 6. 3 0PM, FOX C L ASSIC S This three-part spe­cial charts the story of Aussie cin­e­mas, which re­acted to the in­tro­duc­tion of TV pretty much how you’d ex­pect – in­tro­duc­ing des­per­ate gim­micks such as ex­pen­sive Cin­erama (re­quir­ing five pro­jec­tion­ists and only last­ing 10 years), curved screens, six-track stereo and “sex hy­giene films” with a nurse in attendance. Nar­rated by Graeme Blun­dell (above).
