Global Village, 6pm, SBS Presented by Silvio Rivier, pictured, tonight’s global window opens on Turkey in a show subtitled Delicious Orient: The Sultan’s Favourite Dishes . On a trip of my own, I remember escaping from the Greek tourist’s staples of souvlaki and moussaka to the mouth- watering taste sensations available across the border in Turkey. And that was just at the takeaway stands of Istanbul. This looks quite deeply into the prevalence of spoons, the culinary history and the music of the famous Topkapi Palace, which kept up to 20 executive chefs and six sous chefs in work. Ah, the spice markets of old Istanbul. The Cook and the Chef, 6.30pm, ABC Portable food? Takeaway, you may say, be you cook, chef or punter at a music festival. Either way, finger food as a meal is the order of the night. Look out for a chickpea fritter and a kooky Balinese pastie. There’s a delightful taste of pastie history from Maggie Beer, on a visit to the old South Australian mining town of Burra, where 19th- century miners ate pasties by holding the crust ridge with their grubby hands. Battlefront: U- boat War, 7.30pm, National Geographic Spectacular footage of the likes of the 1939 sinking of the British passenger liner Athenia. Torpedoed by a U- boat, Athenia went down in seconds off the north Irish coast. Features interviews with U- boat attack survivors about their experience and opens a clear eye on another dark chapter in the history of war.
