An In­con­ve­nient Truth, 2.35pm, Show­time

If you missed this piv­otal ac­count of cli­mate change by Al Gore, one of the most elo­quent and re­spected speak­ers on the sub­ject, here is your chance.

Mythbusters: Buster Spe­cial, 5.30pm, SBS

Buster, in case you don’t know, is Jamie Hyne­man and Adam Sav­age’s No. 1 crasht­est dummy, and they are for­ever blow­ing him up and re­build­ing him. He’s had more lives than a manx cat, and tonight the lads put him at risk again with that old myth about break­ing the wa­ter with a ham­mer thrown just be­fore you en­ter it as you fall from a great height, say, sus­pended 50m above wa­ter by a crane. But this is just one of the cute pranks they play as they re­visit the for­tunes of Buster the in­de­struc­tible.

Re­viewed pro­gram times and the movie sched­ules above are shown in AEST. Times in other states are pro­vided in the guide pages op­po­site.
