I'll be honest, the sum total of my knowledge on the Ark of the Covenant comes from Raiders of the Lost Ark. Without that movie, I'd have assumed it was a giant boat - I mean it's got the word "ark" in it, right? What that movie taught me was that Nazis had a thing for the Ark. I also learned that if you're around when someone opens it, your face will be melted off and you will die - unless you close your eyes. Though I never understood how that provided any protection at all. Like, if you only peeked for a second, did you just get injured? And how would you know when it was safe to open your eyes again? The other thing I learned was that the Americans had it, crated up and hidden in a warehouse somewhere. Of course, I'm willing to accept that none of this is actually true. But there's not a whole lot in this documentary that is true either. It does explain what is in the Ark of the Covenant - those stone tablets inscribed with the 10 Commandments - but after that little bit of history there are just a whole lot of theories as to what happened to it. Obviously that's implied by the word "mystery" in the title but it does feel like a bit of a letdown to plough through this show only for it to go "hey, we don't know where the hell it is". Shows about dogs in the pound looking for a home have become a new genre in recent years. Like most good ideas, they always seem obvious in hindsight. Firstly, everyone likes dogs - and a lot more than cats, given the complete lack of shows about trying find "forever homes" for cats. Secondly, they provide the option to tug at the heartstrings through the story of the prospective dog adopter. Those stories always have an emotional tone to them; you never see someone on these shows who wants a dog "because it seemed like a good idea at the time". This series is hosted by comedian Joel Creasey and dog behaviourist Laura V (who opted against using her full surname of Vissaritis). They work well together; Creasey admits he knows very little about dogs, while Vissaritis provides some handy insights into dog behaviour. Even when, during a visit to a dog's new home, she has to politely chip the owner for taking a cavalier approach when the house dog they already have starts nipping the new arrival. This gripping three-part series looks at the sinking of Greenpeace ship the Rainbow Warrior in Auckand Harbour in 1985. The culprits were the French, who didn't like Greenpeace protesting their nuclear testing in the Pacific. Though they spent months denying it was them - even after New Zealand police arrested two of the agents. This series interviews a number of the protesters who were on board the ship - but luckily went ashore than fateful night (photographer Fernando Pereira stayed on the ship and drowned) - as well as the police officers who investigated the bombing.
