SBS has always offered a different perspective, so it's little surprise their revamped SBS 2 channel pushes the envelope. The new format is lively, engaging and fun giving viewers exciting programs to watch outside of the traditional trash on the commercial networks — complete with loud grating advertisements. I've got a long list of new shows to enjoy, with the antics of Benidorm Bastards at the top — though G Wars and If He's Not The One follow very closely behind. The successful format of Benidorm Bastards has been copied in the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England and even in the USA with Betty White's Off Their Rockers. Monday nights are fun.

Rebecca Baumann's Automated Colour Field is one of my favourite works at the moment — and one of those ideas you wish you had. Rebecca's clever use of flip clocks and paper is hypnotic. It's on show at the MCA at the moment and well worth repeat visits.
