Ken Hom Travels With a Hot Wok (8.30pm BBC2) With the cuisine of the Pacific Rim currently in much better shape than the region's economy, it's a good time for a visit from the grinning super-chef. Sydney is the first stop on a six- city tour of East-West "fusion" cuisine - tomato soup with lemon grass and coconut milk for beginners, crackling rice-paper-wrapped fish for show-offs.
The Jerk (9pm BBC2) Steve Martin was once considered by American audiences to hold the unofficial title of world's funniest man. British audiences have failed to embrace his manic humour with quite the same gusto - symptomatic, perhaps, of our distrust of extroverts. In his first film lead, he plays a manically energetic simpleton who heads for New York when he discovers that his black parents aren't his real mom and dad.Reuse content
