The Ten Deadliest Snakes in the World (9pm ITV) And they all live in Australia. This is surprisingly entertaining fare, principally for the expression on Steve Irwin's face every time he picks up one of these venomous critters and they snap back at him. However Irwin, inevitably dubbed "the real Crocodile Dundee", is director of Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park, so he knows what he's doing.
The Heidi Chronicles (9pm C5) One woman's march through 30 years of American feminism in this way-above-average TV movie boasting some of Jamie Lee Curtis's finest work. Adapted in 1995 from Wendy Wasserstein's Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway comedy, Curtis plays our intelligent, high-achieving but unhappy protagonist, floundering in middle age and looking back on her life from the 1960s to the present. A strong support cast includes Tom Hulce and Kim Cattrall.Reuse content
