WHATS ON FRIDAY ABCS Can We Help? is an audiencedriven series with the questions and stories coming from viewers at home.

Elsewhere, Catalina babysits for Joys kids and plays some interesting games with them. WHATS ON MONDAY IN tonights episode of SBSs Mythbusters, it is revealed that Adam and the sea dont agree and Jamie wants to test non-pharmaceutical cures. Instead of going out into rough seas, they want to try Jamie on a seasick chair. The team copies NASAs design to induce nausea and tries it out on Adam, Jamie and the rest of the team, but only Adam and Grant are affected by motion sickness. The Mythbusters team test mouth sprays, wrist bands and pharmaceutical medications. Mythbusters is on SBS at 7.30pm What it means to be Jewish Jamie Kastner in a Kike Like Me. FILM-MAKER Jamie Kastner wonders who is considered Jewish. What does it mean to be Jewish? And why does he feel threatened when people ask him if he is Jewish? The SBS documentary, Kike Like Me, is partly inspired by the movie Gentlemans Agreement, where Gregory Peck plays a gentile journalist in New York who starts telling people he is Jewish for a story on antiSemitism. Beginning his quest in New York City, Kastner receives a shotgun bar mitzvah from Hasids in Brooklyn and attends a Jewish play entitled Brokeback Minion. In Washington DC, Kastner meets Pat Buchanan, a long-time Republican insider who believes that President George W. Bush was brainwashed by the Jewish and forced into an unnecessary war with Iraq. From the US, Kastner travels to Jerusalem. I might as well check out what great rewards the Promised Land has in store for me. In Jerusalem, all Jewish individuals have the right to move to Israel and become citizens, so Kastner explores one of the absorption centres that new citizens can stay in. He said that he loved how he was asked if he had a gun while visiting a synagogue and receiving another bar mitzvah. Over in London, Kastner interviews US-born writer Carol Gould, who has decided to move back to the United States after being made aware of her Jewish roots in a very negative and angry way. Ms Gould said: We are being engulfed by a tsunami of anti-Semitism, here and in Europe and around the world. Kastner arrives in Paris with an optimistic attitude but ends up causing a nearriot simply by asking what people think about Jews. The realities of the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland are confronting for the viewer and Kastner. You know this is horrible and I dont need to see any more of this. I dont need to see the ovens, Im going home. Screening on SBS tonight at 11pm is Kike Like Me, an idiosyncratic exploration of what it means to be perceived as Jewish in the world today.
