Grand Designs - Season 15

From Sunday 25 February at 7:40pm

image

The brand-new series of Grand Designs is as engaging and entertaining as ever.

This series starts with an ambitious upside-down, New Zealand-inspired hill house clinging to a steep slope in Worcestershire – built by a couple who bought the plot on the internet without seeing it first. To follow there’s an innovative Tardis-like, space-saving home squeezed into a tiny corner of East London devised by a young inventor. There’s a unique horseshoe-shaped retro courtyard house on the ancient grounds of an abbey in Hertfordshire, and a giant ground-breaking shed-inspired barn for a young family in County Down.

In North London there’s a reconstructed old lodge melded to a giant black cube of a house for two neurologists. On the edge of a beautiful village in the Peak District National Park is a super-eco hidden house buried in a slope, and in South London a derelict old dairy is transformed into an ultra-chic family home. And then there’s the swirling snakeskin-roofed super-house nestling in the Blackdown Hills of Devon, inspired by an ammonite shell.

Kevin McCloud is there to share the emotional highs and lows of those willing to put everything on the line to create homes they hope will transform their lives forever.

Compass - New Series

Compass: I Confess

Saturday 3 March at 6:00pm

image

What is confession and is the need to confess an imperative all humans share? In this Compass special, Kumi Taguchi reveals what confession looks like today.

The Royal Commission has called into question the Catholic version of confession and research shows it’s a practice with a pre-Christian history. Today, divulging your innermost secrets to a therapist is a form of confession and confession is the cornerstone of a criminal admission of guilt.

Compass hit the streets with the Urban Confessional. Secular hipsters who stand on street corners offering passers-by a friendly ear and the chance to be heard. Andrew Spiteri explains “there’s so many distractions in this world that we don’t often take the time to really listen to others or listen to ourselves and I think urban confessional teaches people to do that”

Writer Ailsa Piper shares her story on carrying the sins of others, as she trekked across Spain. Walking with the sins of others she understood the need for absolution and forgiveness. “I believe deeply in confession. I think it is us at our most vulnerable if we do it with an open heart and a deep need. I think it’s also when I perceive people to be their most beautiful.”

Catholic priest Michael Whelan feels a deep responsibility in hearing confession and sharing the pain of his
parishioners. “I think human beings respond to an empathic listener, someone who’s not trying to take advantage of them, someone who takes them seriously in their situation.”

Monday nights unmissable on ABC

Australia’s most trusted current affairs line-up returns with Australian Story, Four Corners and Q&A back from 8.00pm February 5.

Monday nights are unmissable viewing on the ABC in 2018 with the return of Australia’s best and most trusted investigative journalism, storytelling and discussion, delivered by the nation’s most respected journalists

On Monday 5 February, Australian Story is back at its life-affirming best for another year with a range of moving, surprising and engaging stories that traverse Australia’s geographic and emotional landscapes – from a high-profile gay wedding in Sydney to a story of our country’s ancient history, from ballet superstars and sporting sensations to stories that uncover the best in humanity after the worst of circumstances.

Australian Story begins 2018 with an exclusive behind-the-scenes invitation to the wedding not everyone in the family wanted, as former Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s sister Christine Forster marries her partner Virginia Flitcroft.

Following on from a groundbreaking 2017, ABC weekly television investigative flagship Four Corners is back with more of the fearless investigations that change Australia.

Hosted by Sarah Ferguson and with the addition of four outstanding journalists to its award-winning team, Four Corners begins the year with The Billion Dollar Bust: Inside the undercover operation to catch the world’s most wanted money launderer, from Linton Besser.

Every Monday night Q&A tackles the the big issues that set Australians thinking, talking and debating. Q&A is the national public forum where Australian citizens set the agenda by asking the questions you want answered.

With host Tony Jones, Q&A provides a rare opportunity for Australians to hold our political leaders and key opinion makers to account.

As the federal government puts tax cuts front and center of its budget agenda, Q&A will kick off the year on February 5 with a spotlight in economic policy.

“Australians want to know they are getting the best and most accurate journalism from a source they can trust,” said ABC Director, News Gaven Morris.

“ABC audiences know Monday nights can be counted on for complete coverage of the key news, in-depth storytelling, ground-breaking investigative reporting and lively discussion of the important issues.”

GRAB A BITE OF SAMMY J EVERY THURSDAY NIGHT!

From Thursday 8 February at 6:55pm

Welcome aboard Sammy J, a brand-new weekly bite-sized satirical sketch series to broadcast on ABC at 6.55pm starting Thursday 8 February. Sammy J will also be available on ABC iview, ABC iview Facebook and ABC COMEDY YouTube.

Multi award-nominated comedian Sammy J is making his boldest pitch yet to the electorate: a three-minute frolic through the issues of the week. From craft activities with Malcolm and Bill, Question Time debriefs with the Government Coach, to singalongs in the Parliamentary Bar, Mr J will continue to flog our leaders with wet lettuce until they refer him to the High Court.

Sammy J’s unique comedic talents, satire, and his insatiable appetite for politics will blend with the successful characters and ‘small worlds’ of his previous two series, Sammy J’s Playground Politics and Sammy J’s Democratic Party, to create a new platform from which he can harass and heckle the politicians of the day.

Sammy J said; “In the words of Julia Gillard - there will be some days I delight you, there may be some days I disappoint you, but on every day, I will be working my absolute hardest for you. Thank you for inviting me into your living rooms, and I promise to clean up after myself.”

Sammy J is an award-winning comedian, writer and musician. He won the Best Newcomer award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and went on to performed in Edinburgh, Montreal, and every major Australian comedy festival. His album Skinny Man, Modern World received an ARIA nomination for Best Comedy Release. His current solo show, Hero Complex, won Best Comedy at the Melbourne Fringe Festival and was nominated for a Helpmann Award in 2017.

New line up

10.05pm Tonightly with Tom Ballard

I notice that Tonightly is being repeated on Wednesdays on the main channel. Is it just a timeslot filler for the time being and/or a programming move to gain more viewers?


#455

Probably needs a boost from more exposure.

ABC’s telemovie Riot will screen on Sunday 25th February at 8.30pm.
