It is a special sneak peak episode, hosted by Jules Lund and screened on Imparja. Hole in the Wall fea tures a large polystyrene wall (4mx 2.3m) that travels along a 15m straight path at contestants who are challenged to make a shape which is cut into the wall and attempt to manoeuvre their bodies through it. If they cant make the shape and the wall hits them they are pushed into a 1.5m plunge pool. The contestants have between threeand-a-half and seven seconds to read the shape and contort their bodies to fit through the hole. If successful they score points for their team and the overall winning team will receive cash for their chosen charity. Each episode has two teams of three people. The walls vary be tween individual shapes and team shapes, which allow two or all three teams members try to pass through the wall at once. It will be rough and tumble hilarity in the sneak peak episode which has three glamorous women taking on burly, bawdy blokes in beauties versus the beasts clash. Donning the spandex competition suit and facing the wall for the beauties will be Kelly Landry from Getaway, Brodie Harper fromPostcards Victoria, and actor/ singer Totti Goldsmith. For the beasts, Scott CamofDomestic Blitz, Mark Jacko Jackson (former AFL player turned media personality) and Tim Smith (radio announcer). Hole in theWall is an international success story which has seen the Fox network in North America commission 26 episodes based on the attraction of the UK pilot. It is currently being shown inFrance, Italy, Denmark, Mexico, Japan, Indonesia, China, Argentina, Russia and a number of other countries. Hole in the Wall will be shown on Imparja on Wednesday at 7.30pm. Sydney has become the benchmark for fireworks displays since the 2000 Olympics. Sydney gives Beijing hard act to follow MORE than 10,700 athletes from 200 nations will gather in Beijing to compete for 302 gold medals in 28 sports. Four years of training and sacrifice goes on the line in theultimate test of an Olympians mettle, with television cameras set to beam 5400 hours of programming to an estimated worldwide audience of four billion people. It started as a simple parade of athletes, the reading of the oath and the lighting of the flame, but Olympic opening ceremonieshavebecomemuch, muchmore. Beijing has kept rehearsals at the Birds Nest Stadium under wraps - and when China wants to keep something quiet, it stays quiet - but what we know is that the three-and-a-half hour extravaganza will feature one of the most spectacular fireworks displays ever seen. Like the games themselves, each opening ceremony strives to be bigger and better, and China will be desperate to prove to the world that they can put on a show like no one else. Many of the Aussie athletes have skipped the ceremony to focus on their events. The biggest cheer of the night will be reserved for when the massive Chinese team enters the stadium. One of the highlights will undoubtedly be the lighting of the flame. Barcelona featured a burning arrow. In Sydney we had the unforgettable sight of Cathy Freeman walking on water. There has been much speculation that NBA giant Yao Ming or champion hurdler Liu Xiang will be given the honour in Beijing. Also kept under wraps is just who will have the honour of carrying Australias flag. Veteran rower James Tomkins is the favourite. The world has become accustomed to spectacular opening ceremonies, and the standard has been set. The eyes of the world are now on Beijing. It is truly a massive event. With the favourable time difference meaning most of the big events fall during waking hours in Australia, it promises to be a feast ofOlympic action. The opening ceremony screens on Seven Central at 9.20pm on Friday. Couples love and passion A REMARKABLE love story, When Colin Met Joyce is about two Australians whose shared love of life and unwavering passion for equality has kept them together formore than 40 years. Bridging the gap between white and black Australia, the film provides a fascinating in sight into what it is like to grow up in a mixed race family, and reminds us about the challenges involved in influencing political and social change. Joyce Clague is a vibrant and deeply passionate Aboriginal woman, contagious in her enthusiasm and unstoppable in her pursuit of equality. Colin is Joyces more reserved husband, equally passionate about equality and as enamoured with Joyce as the day they met. Together they have challenged many laws, brought about real change forAboriginal people, fostered nine children and raised four of their own, one of whom is blind. When Colin Met Joyce will be shown on SBS at 7.30 on Friday.
