The His­tory of Sa­fari: If you missed this two-part doco on ABC1 ear­lier this year, here’s a chance to catch up. That splen­didly ec­cen­tric ac­tor Richard E. Grant, who grew up in Swazi­land, looks at ev­ery­thing to do with the art of African sa­fari, from shoot­ing par­ties to the new con­ser­va­tion aware­ness. Tonight, 7.30pm, His­tory. Ber­ing Sea Gold: There’s a new kind of gold rush up in Alaska but the booty is un­der­wa­ter. In the fron­tier town of Nome, as the ice pack melts, prospec­tors dive and dredge the Ber­ing Sea for glacial sed­i­ments rich with gold. It’s all mad, dan­ger­ous and blink­ing freez­ing. Wed­nes­day, 8.30pm, Dis­cov­ery.
