QUICK BITES

The Ein­stein Fac­tor, 6.30pm, ABC1

This is one of those pro­grams I rather fail to see the point of. Per­haps it’s just that I’m con­di­tioned to see­ing win­ners win things. I guess it’s ter­rific for peo­ple to demon­strate and be quizzed on their spe­cial sub­ject ( mine would clearly be the bleedin’ ob­vi­ous) but is that spe­cialised knowl­edge re­ally so in­ter­est­ing to view­ers? And don’t get me started on the rel­e­vance of the smug brains trust ( shud­der).

Ele­phants of Sam­buru, 6.30pm, An­i­mal Planet

Ele­phants are adorable. But away from the zoos where we mostly see them, they are even more ma­jes­tic, so­cial and im­pres­sive. Join your host Saba Douglas- Hamil­ton as she vis­its ele­phants in their nat­u­ral state in Sam­buru, Kenya, her home state. She catches up with a tiny or­phaned ele­phant who will surely die if not res­cued, and a horny bull that weighs more than 6000kg and is pumped full of hor­mones and ag­gres­sion. Rather her than me.
