Bor­der Se­cu­rity

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Tues­day, 7.30pm, Seven This show, hosted by Grant Bowler and in its 11th se­ries, is a con­stant source of fas­ci­na­tion. The sub­terfuge peo­ple use to sneak pro­hib­ited items — from drugs to seeds to granny’s home­made salami — through Cus­toms is of­ten in­ge­nious. But their re­source­ful­ness is no match for the clever de­tec­tor dogs with their ol­fac­tory senses that range from 100,000 to one mil­lion times more sen­si­tive than a hu­man’s. When per­pe­tra­tors are caught, of­ten their reaction is pure theatre. Tonight a pas­sen­ger be­comes en­raged when of­fi­cers search him, and a ner­vous cou­ple tries to dump some­thing sus­pi­cious. And, yes, ev­ery­one filmed signs a con­sent form.
