Can We Help? 6.30pm, ABC On March 31, 1965, Merle Thornton and Rosalie Bogner chained themselves to the bar rail at the Regatta hotel, Brisbane. The issue? Equal drinking rights for women in public bars. Get the whole story from Pete Rowsthorn and his team tonight. Taggart, 8.30pm, ABC Murder night on the ABC takes us to a cold, rainy place in Scotland. A woman wandering alone in the wasteland near a fairground is frightened to hear footsteps and is soon dragged to an untimely, violent death. But the cohesiveness of carnival people works against the apparent prejudice of DCI Burke ( Alex Norton, pictured), who describes them as a bunch of chancers. The mystery deepens when the murdered girl is found to have bruises pre- dating the attack. Animal Cops Detroit, 8.30pm, Animal Planet Detroit, Michigan. The industrial heart of the Great Lakes is also home to the Michigan Humane Society. The animal cruelty division is hurrying to its next call, worried that it may be too late. When the team gets to an abandoned factory site, a starving dog is found close to death in the freezing winter cold.
