START with an epic voyage and the BBC’s Voyages of Discovery: Circumnavigation ( Sunday, 7.30pm, SBS), in which Ferdinand Magellan sets out to find the westward route to the Spice Islands but his crew ends up circumnavigating the world. Compass has been terrific lately and The Quiet Revolution: Part One, New Prophets ( Sunday, 10.05pm, ABC), while scary, is illuminating. The first of three episodes investigates new forms of religiousness, examining the notion that 9/ 11 marked the end of religious tolerance. The doco introduces us to four ‘‘ quiet revolutionaries’’, including Australian Stephanie Dowrick, who believes global turmoil has resulted in a new beginning for religious thinking, despite the fire of fundamentalism. While the thinkers ponder, in Cutting Edge’s The Invisible War ( Tuesday, 8.30pm, SBS) Wolfgang Bergmann looks at the phenomenon of socalled non- lethal weapons developed since the implosion of the Cold War. The new ordnance — electroshock, pepper spray, stink bombs, pulsed energy weapons and deadly rubber balls — is disturbing. No point keeping up that gun club subscription. Inside Australia’s Footy, The La Perouse Way ( Wednesday, 8pm, SBS) is an edgy look at Aboriginal sport, the breaking of racial barriers and the stereotyping of indigenous people.
