10 Ways to End the World

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Sun­day, 7.30pm, Na­tional Ge­o­graphic It’s hard to avoid the end of the world right now. This is be­cause the Mayan cal­en­dar ap­pears to sug­gest it’s lights out for ev­ery­one on De­cem­ber 21. Even the Prime Min­is­ter, Ju­lia Gil­lard, got in on the dooms­day thing last week, record­ing a mock se­ri­ous video for ABC’s Triple J. So leave it to Nat Geo to come up with an en­tire week of pro­grams about how it might hap­pen. Loosely clumped un­der the ban­ner Sur­vivor’s Guide to the Mayan Apoc­a­lypse, the doom and gloom kicks off tonight with the ter­rif­i­cally en­gag­ing 10 Ways to End the World. I can tell you the least likely way the world may end, at No 10, is through a neu­trino blast from a nearby col­laps­ing star. I don’t want to spoil the party by giv­ing away any of the oth­ers, but rest as­sured this ain’t com­edy. Although could the fi­nal ti­tle, Evac­u­ate Earth, pic­tured, on Thurs­day (20th De­cem­ber) at 7.30pm, be more timely?
