The Wine Show SBS, 8.30pm

A cosy night in on a Satur­day night can be per­fectly topped off with a nice big glass of wine, and what bet­ter in­spi­ra­tion on what to choose than The Wine Show. In what many will con­sider the ul­ti­mate dream job, novice wine lover and TV star Matthew Goode and his ac­tor friend Matthew Rhys

travel around to meet ex­perts and visit vine­yards as they dis­cover the sto­ries be­hind some of the world’s most fas­ci­nat­ing wines. Tonight, they ven­ture out from their villa HQ in the Ital­ian hills and head to Tus­cany for a bar­rel race and find a wine made by a woman called Dora.

MOVIE: Sunshine

SBS VICELAND, 8.30pm, M (2007)

In di­rec­tor Danny Boyle’s lav­ishly de­signed sci-fi epic, Rose Byrne gets down and dirty in a full-on ac­tion role as Cassie, a pi­lot who leads a team of eight as­tro­nauts, in­clud­ing physi­cist Cil­lian Mur­phy, en­gi­neer Chris Evans and bi­ol­o­gist Michelle Yeoh, 50 years into the fu­ture on a bid to reignite the dying sun. Can our plucky team save the day by fir­ing a gi­gan­tic bomb into the star’s fail­ing heart? You don’t need to be a rocket sci­en­tist to fig­ure out things go wrong, putting the whole mis­sion in jeop­ardy, and risk­ing the lives of the crew.

Minis­eries: Ap­ple Tree Yard ABC, 8.30pm

Easy view­ing? No way, but Ap­ple Tree Yard is grip­ping and bril­liantly acted. If you thought the first three parts were in­tense, tonight’s emo­tional sea­son fi­nale might have you reach­ing for a stiff drink. Believ­abil­ity and plot holes aside, the scenes that take place in the court­room tonight lav­ishly lay on the melo­drama. The mur­der trial con­tin­ues, with Cost­ley’s (Ben Chap­lin) lawyer Bon­nard (Ly­dia Leonard) bas­ing her de­fence on ev­i­dence that Cost­ley suf­fers from a per­son­al­ity disor­der which would have im­peded his abil­ity to re­act nor­mally.

Fea­tures Emily Wat­son (pic­tured).
