So You Think You Can Dance, 8.30pm, Ten It’s all over for this se­ries of SYTYCD . And not be­fore time, some may say. The faith­ful will have watched 35 hours of the show and 167 per­for­mances, but lo­cals won’t have had a shred to do with the nearly 60 mil­lion votes cast months ago in the US. Ah well, such ir­rel­e­van­cies are the wages of watch­ing the daz­zling hand­ful left to fight it out tonight. There will be tears, trauma and tri­umph among the spins and turns, and not just from host Cat Dee­ley, pic­tured. The Gourmet Next Door, 9pm, Life­Style Food In sym­pa­thy per­haps with The Week­end Aus­tralian ’ sec­tion col­umn The Arm­chair Trav­eller , meet chef Amy Fin­ley, who says she can trans­port her­self across the world with mere recipes for food from ex­otic lo­ca­tions.

But be­fore you can say Morocco, there’s a rich chicken stew with squash and dried plums in a tangy mari­nade on her ta­ble. Next to it there’s roasted red pep­per salad spiced with cumin, cin­na­mon and pa­prika. For desert, plump sweet dates stuffed with cin­na­mon and cream cheese, served chilled. Stay where you are, Morocco, I’m com­ing over. Life’s a Trip with An­drew An­thony, 9.30pm, Dis­cov­ery Travel & Liv­ing AA flies Ja­pan to see if wagyu steak truly is the world’s best.
