ARMCHAIR TRAVELLER An American Werewolf in Paris: Who could forget this 1997 horror flick in which a tourist falls for a she-wolf, with results as comical as they are dire; Julie Delpy stars as the sweet (and occasionally hairy) Serafine Pigot but look for Modern Family’s Julie Bowen in a supporting role. Today, 8.30pm, Showtime Action. OFF the five-star rails in Laos, transport tends to be a far less salubrious affair. In the lovely riverside town of Luang Prabang, its French colonial buildings and old precincts preserved and protected by UNESCO, I travel around on a series of ropey old motorbikepowered tuktuks that one boards via the rear; these are known as jumbos, for some unfathomable reason, and may or may not come with functioning brakes and safetyconscious drivers. No matter: such conveyances are fun and breezy, just the right speed and style for meandering around one of Asia’s prettiest enclaves. The Kangaroo Gang: Thieves by Appointment: Barry Humphries is the fine narrator of this dramatised two-part documentary about a gang of Australians who staged daring jewellery heists in London in the 1960s; concludes next week. Sunday, 9.30pm, BBC Knowledge.
