rams the D.W. Griffith of surf movies and his original The Endless Summer (1965), shot on a measly $50,000 budget and grossing over $30 million, is the surfers' Birth Of A Nation, released with impeccable timing as the sport was peaking in popularity. Brown invented the rudimentary ground rules for the genre, in which a group of intrepid travellers, always male and usually blond-haired, search the world's more exotic locales for the perfect wave. Lies (1994), Hr Channel 7, 8.30pm IN a role that resembles his Lost Action Hero persona, Arnold Schwarzenegger -plays a seemingly dull-witted computer salesman who moonlights as a spy. For 15 years, he has successfully deceived his frustrated wife (Jamie Lee Curtis).

When she finally wakes up to his subterfuge, he suspects that she is having an.affair.The dilemma becomes a matter of international versus domestic priorities: should he save the world from possible nuclear destruction or rescue his own marriage? MOVIE: Pandora's Box 1 929), SBS, 10.25pm LOUISE Brooks is star quality at its most luminous in G.W. Pabst's amalgamation of two modern plays by Franz Wedekind. Brooks is fascinating in every subtly modulated gesture as Lulu, the archetypal femme fatale.a frankly carnal woman who uses men and resists being used by them. It takes an archetypal misogynist Jack The Ripper to put an end to her. Critic'sView The Year Of The 8.30pm SWAMPED by so much live TV coverage, replays and often banal panel shows, it's easy to forget footy is filled with powerful human stories.

Year Of The Dogs jotts us back to reality with its absorbing and always entertaining portrait of a year in the life of the then Footscray Football Club. Now the team is an AFL heavyweight and has the American-style name of the Western Bulldogs, but in 1996 Footscray was seriously On-field, the club was regularly walloped by opponents, lost a coach and finished near the bottom of the ladder. Off-field, financial worries, internal divisions and a potential merger with another club prevented much progress. Producer-director Michael Cordell had access to most of the club's key figures, and the results are outstanding, such as when current coach Terry Wallace and staff discuss sacking prominent player Tony Uberatore (who has gone on to great success in the past two years). Or the coundess subde insights into the dynamics of a football club, especially its dependence on the intricate world of male friendship.

Yet the real stars of this documentary are not so much the players, but the fans, symbolised by mother and daughter Pat and Jenny Hodgson. The Hodgsons' love for the club is palpable and it is their passion which makes Year OfThe Dogs such a pleasure to watch (whether you enjoy footy or not). ChasingThe Midnight Sun, ABC, 6pm CROSSING Greenland's vast ice cap Fan tales: loyal Footscray bamcker Pat and Jenny Hodgson In happier times. On The Web Masterpiece: Lulu in Berlin, SBS, 9.30pm She was far more than just a pretty face Louise Brooks Society has an exhaustive web site about this fascinating siren. by sled and kayak is the sort of thing only people with a touch of madness would consider, so it's not surprising to discover three Australians have done it Eric Phillips, Ben Galbraith and Wade Fairley decided to copy the trip made by another Australian, explorer John Rymill, in the early 1 peaks of ice, chilling sky-blue waters and regular blizzards provide the beautiful but dangerous backdrop as the three make their journey during Greenland's brief summer.

The Nanny, Channel THE Nanny's Fran Fine (Fran Drescher) and Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy) should have married ages ago, but instead they endlessly circle around each other to maintain the precious "unresolved sexual This week, in an episode called Educating Fran, special guest Harry Hamlin (LA Law) provides the foil. He plays' Steve Goldberg, a philosophy professor at Maggie Sheffield's college and he's keen on Fran. Maxwell gets jealous, Fran still misses Mr Sheffield, and the whole thing is too predictable. Endless Summer II (1 993), Channel 9, 2pm BRUCE Brown is rightly regarded as 3 if Nostalgic glimpses of a world that has vanished faster than we care to remember. OPTUS: Secret And Lies, Movie One, 8.30pm WITH Secrets And Lies, British writer-director Mike Leigh shakes off the bitterness that marks many of his earlier films to embrace with affection and optimism characters whose lives have been ruined by the social dystopia of contemporary Britain.

Brenda Blethyn turns in an extraordinary performance as the tortured, working-class mother who gave up her first-born for adoption.Twenty years later, her black daughter seeks her out, triggering a range of responses from Blethyn's other daughter, son and sister-in-law. Paul Kalina RadioWaves Buy, Swap And Sell, 3 AW (1278), 6am to 8am WHETHER it's a washing machine, old swap cards or a family heirloom you wish to pick up, swap or flick, this show offers you a great chance for only the cost of a local phone call. Every Sunday (and Saturday) morning, bargain seekers tune in hoping to find that elusive item they can't seem to get at the shops or garage sales. And. there seems to be no limits on what weird and unusual things people can sell and, perhaps more pertinently, what weird and wonderful things people will buy.

Darren James is the long-time host of this show and his genial voice is ideal. It's a bit like an audio version of The Trading Post, except here you're more likely to come across something you never even knew you wanted. Darrin arrant The Pick Of Pay TV FOXTEL: Cinesound Royal Tour Of Australia ITS easy to scoff at the patronising tone of the old Cinesound newsreel, with its reference to "the fuzzy-wuzzies who still have an important part" to play in Australia's history. But before comforting yourself that "we're not like that just consider what viewers in 45 years' time will make of our own TV news bulletins. This Cinesound Review focuses on a milestone of sorts; the 1954 Royal Tour of Australia, when the "fairytale Queen and Duke" became the first reigning monarchs to enter an Australian Parliament, were jubilantly welcomed by 750,000 Melburnians, and, hear it for yourselves, addressed the Australian people as "Your Vietnamese.
