Aus­tralia’s Best Back­yards, 6.30pm, Seven The in­creas­ingly slick Jamie Durie touches down for his first show at Seven since his en­er­getic ap­pear­ances on Danc­ing with the Stars . It’s not ex­actly Back­yard Blitz re­dux be­cause, ac­cord­ing to rule 27 of the big book of television cliches, ev­ery­thing now must have a com­pet­i­tive edge. So James and the team ( Andrew O’Sul­li­van and Fiona Bruyn) are go­ing to show us the best back yards they can find. Each week a back yard goes into the fi­nal, and at the end of the se­ries, the pun­ters choose the win­ner. Fair enough. Choco­late Con­fi­den­tial, 9.30pm, LifeStyle Food Yet an­other in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the joys of choco­late. Eat it, pour it, sculpt it and watch it on pay TV. Not a lot of new ground, but lots of mag­i­cal scenery from Paris to the Do­mini­can Repub­lic, where the world’s top choco­late judge re­veals her ver­dict: ‘‘ This choco­late smells like the sweat of an­i­mals,’’ she huffs.
