DOC­U­MEN­TARIES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv - Ian Cuth­bert­son

BRI­TISH so­prano Les­ley Gar­rett keeps the ball in play tonight in the ter­rific Who Do You Think You Are? ( 7.30pm, SBS). As with Kate Ce­ber­ano, mu­si­cal tal­ent ap­pears to run in her fam­ily through sev­eral gen­er­a­tions. This is fol­lowed by Science: Hypochon­dri­acs ( 8.30pm) in which Nor­way’s Dr Wil­helm­son treats hypochon­dri­acs in his Ber­gen clinic. His method is to en­gage in a philo­soph­i­cal dis­cus­sion about the way peo­ple re­late to life and death. Imag­i­nary dis­eases, it seems, are far more de­struc­tive and costly than imag­i­nary friends. More dif­fi­cult to treat, as well. Be­gor­rah, though it’s not St Pa­trick’s Day un­til March 17, Songs of Praise ( Sun­day, 11.30am, ABC1) lets Ea­monn Holmes visit Croagh Pa­trick, Ire­land’s holy moun­tain in County Mayo, so he ( and we) can fol­low in the foot­steps of the coun­try’s pa­tron saint. Stick­ing with Aunty, ABC1 also has a re­peat of the re­mark­able Ge­nius of Pho­tog­ra­phy ( Sun­day, 3pm). The se­ries, first shown on ABC2, looks at the his­tory of pho­tog­ra­phy in all its man­i­fes­ta­tions, in­clud­ing jour­nal­ism, ad­ver­tis­ing, art and por­trai­ture. Speak­ing of re­al­ism, The Real Sea Change ( Wed­nes­day, 8pm, Seven) catches up with those who have left it all be­hind to see if a new lo­cale will change ev­ery­thing else enough to make them happy. John Howard, moon­light­ing from All Saints , fol­lows res­tau­ra­teurs Ian and Catherine to Canada, and a Bris­bane cou­ple make a tough de­ci­sion to move to Tas­ma­nia.
