Song­writer’s Cir­cle, 2.30pm, Ova­tion A Cana­dian song­writ­ing af­fair hosted by Bruce Guthro, a singer- song­writer from Cape Bre­ton Is­land, Nova Sco­tia. This af­ter­noon’s guests are Rita MacNeil and Ron Sex­smith. MacNeil grew up in a place called Big Pond, Cape Bre­ton, and has re­ceived three Junos ( Canada’s high­est mu­si­cal hon­our) and four Cana­dian Coun­try Mu­sic Awards and was in­ducted into the Or­der of Canada in 1992. Prob­a­bly bet­ter known here is Sex­smith, whose work has been widely cov­ered. The Simp­sons, 6pm, Ten This has been on more times than a fire­man’s hat in a bush­fire, but the episode ti­tle alone — The Sum­mer of 4ft2 — is worth the price of read­mis­sion. On a sum­mer hol­i­day, Lisa tries to shed her nerdy im­age to fit in with some cool kids. Ver­sailles Sto­ries, 7.30pm, SBS New se­ries starts tonight. Fol­lows the world- fa­mous Zin­garo eques­trian theatre as it re­hearses in the grounds of the palace of Ver­sailles. Con­struc­tion of a sta­dium that will house thou­sands of spectators is be­hind sched­ule. But for the rid­ers and horses, the show must go on. Col­lec­tors, 8pm, ABC Join Andy Muir­head, pic­tured, and the Col­lec­tors team as they rake over an im­pres­sive col­lec­tion of the works of Som­er­set Maugham, de­signer toys and town and coun­try fur­nish­ings. Andy also prom­ises to re­veal a mys­tery ob­ject that will melt our brains. Good­ness, I hope the ABC is keep­ing those Daleks locked away.
