IN a provocative Compass, The Uniting Church ( Sunday, 9.25pm, ABC) examines Australia’s third largest denomination, a group that is active in campaigning for social justice, human rights and religious liberty.

Surviving four attempts on her life and surrounded by security, she wins in the country’s first democratic parliamentary ballot for 30 years. SBS follows with Hot Docs: Dying to be Anorexic ( Tuesday, 11.05pm, SBS), which investigates the eating disorder, looking at an underground network of proanorexic websites promoting it and at how the disease rules young lives with an iron grip. Why would an intelligent young woman want to cut off her breasts to lose weight? Not for the squeamish.
