RSPCA An­i­mal Res­cue, 7.30pm, Seven An­thony Field, best known as the blue Wig­gle, presents and nar­rates this new show about the RSPCA, as its of­fi­cers go about their res­cue work. Cases in­clude a cat with paralysing tick poi­son­ing, a sheep with so much wool it can’t even stand up and a beau­ti­ful labrador pup that has been abused, prob­a­bly punched so hard that its jaw is bro­ken and its eye black­ened. Med­i­cal Emer­gency, 8pm, Seven Re­turn­ing for a third sea­son, Med­i­cal Emer­gency keeps up the good work of pro­fil­ing the med­i­cal is­sues that plague or­di­nary peo­ple. Tonight, a Je­ho­vah’s Wit­ness in­jured in a mo­tor­bike ac­ci­dent faces a re­li­gion- based pro­hi­bi­tion that could cost him his life; a breast im­plant ac­quired in Thai­land goes hor­ri­bly wrong back home; and a seven- year- old has ab­dom­i­nal pains. Manna for the med­i­cally curious, but not rec­om­mended for the squea­mish. Pek­ing to Paris, 9.30pm, Na­tional Ge­o­graphic In 2005, Daily Tele­graph car­toon­ist War­ren Brown, pic­tured, packed his kit ( in­clud­ing a leather rac­ing hel­met that low­ers your IQ by about 60 points when you put it on) for a most un­usual re- cre­ation of one of the grand­est mo­tor­ing ad­ven­tures of all time. In 1907 a bunch of car en­thu­si­asts some­how man­aged to drive from Pek­ing to Paris. Brown and his team are go­ing to try it, too. In splen­did, fuel- in­jected four- wheel drives? Not on your nelly. The cars are all 100- year- old orig­i­nals.
