QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv - Ian Cuth­bert­son

Gar­den­ing Aus­tralia, 6.30pm, ABC Is it pos­si­ble to grow a mag­nif­i­cent gar­den in a very cold cli­mate? Well, since there are quite a few in north­ern Europe, I’d imag­ine the one we’re go­ing to look at, half­way up that Tas­ma­nian hill called Mt Welling­ton, will thrive. Top Gear, 7.35pm, SBS Billed as a high- oc­tane mix of per­for­mance cars, adrenalin, com­edy and celebri­ties, this show con­tin­ues to set the bar other car pro­grams must live up to. It’s hard to put a fin­ger on ex­actly what it is that make this the one, but ev­ery car fa­natic and mo­tor­ing jour­nal­ist I spoke to gave it the nod. Pre­sen­ters Jeremy Clark­son, James May and Richard Ham­mond thrive in the at­mos­phere of a stu­dio au­di­ence, egging each other on to ever greater feats of ego­tism and dar­ing. In tonight’s re­peat, get an­other look at the Porsche Cay­man S; and have a sec­ond twirl in a ra­dio- con­trolled car.
