The Bill, 8.35pm, ABC A mother’s love has no bounds when it comes to pro­tect­ing her sons. Martha Hen­dricks does her best to cover for her son Otis when he is ar­rested fol­low­ing a rob­bery, un­til her younger son is im­pli­cated as well. In­cred­i­bly, when Martha is at­tacked, Otis is sus­pected. DCs Terry Perkins and Mickey Webb mount an un­der­cover op­er­a­tion to see what’s re­ally go­ing on in this dif­fi­cult fam­ily. A Year in the Art Life, 10.05pm, ABC An off­beat look at the high­lights of art in 2007, writ­ten and pre­sented by Andrew Frost and di­rected by Bren­dan Fletcher, creators of The Art Life se­ries. Fea­tures the six artists who made it to the Venice Bi­en­nale, the rise of the mil­lion- dol­lar paint­ing, the fake van Gogh that made the Na­tional Gallery of Vic­to­ria blush and that plat­inum skull val­ued at $ 100 mil­lion. Oh boy, that was so ’ 07. Sa­man­tha Brown: Pass­port to Latin Amer­ica, 10.30pm, Dis­cov­ery Travel & Liv­ing Ac­cord­ing to Brown, pic­tured, Uruguay is of­ten over­looked, sit­ting as it does be­tween its two huge and pop­u­lar neigh­bours Ar­gentina and Brazil. Cat­tle out­num­ber peo­ple in Uruguay three to one. But not in the cap­i­tal Mon­te­v­ideo, where half of the coun­try’s pop­u­la­tion lives. Meet all of them at the Sun­day mar­ket. What is that gloop they are all drink­ing? Ap­par­ently the first one is the worst. Brown makes a fist of it and drinks it all up.
