DRAMA

VERA

8.30 PM, ABC

Brenda Blethyn’s caus­tic, prickly, case-crack­ing cop is back as gritty UK drama Vera starts its third sea­son. Blethyn (above) is in fine form repris­ing the role of grumpy, work-ob­sessed yet al­most stingily com­pas­sion­ate De­tec­tive Chief In­spec­tor Vera Stan­hope as she in­ves­ti­gates the killing of a phys­io­ther­a­pist, shot at a swanky coun­try re­treat.

MO­TOR RAC­ING: FOR­MULA ONE BEL­GIAN GRAND PRIX

9.30 PM, TEN

Ten makes good use of its mo­tor rac­ing rights as the For­mula One World Cham­pi­onships moves into Round 11 at Bel­gium’s Spa Fran­cor­champs cir­cuit in Bel­gium. The set­ting’s gor­geous – although we doubt cham­pi­onship leader Lewis Hamil­ton will be tak­ing time to ad­mire the view. Matt White and Alan Jones lead the live cov­er­age.

OB-DOC

BONDI RES­CUE

6.30 PM, TEN

Seas whipped up by cy­clonic swells see An­thony “Har­ries” Car­roll and a body boarder he’s try­ing to res­cue cop a pound­ing as they are swept on to rocks. But that’s no match for the cy­clonic force that is vet­eran Harry Nightin­gale (left), when he catches some id­iots bury­ing beer bot­tles on his beloved Bondi.
