5:30 pm 
Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "Bombay Blast"  More than 5000 years ago, a potter in Central Asia made a tall, urn-shaped, incredibly efficient clay barbecue pit-the origin of the Indian tandoor.

Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "Asia's Crossroads"  Some of the world's biggest flavors come hot off some of the world's smallest grills. Proof positive? Sizzling beef sates-cut from well-marbled rib eye steaks and masterfully spiced with cumin, coriander, and turmeric from tiny Singapore. From Guam, where the sun first rises on American barbecue, comes a main-course chicken salad like your mother never made: smoked chicken with freshly grated coconut and vivifying doses of lime juice and chiles. D

Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "Spanish Smoke"  Long before Spanish culinary mad scientist Ferran Adria stunned the world with his foams, infusions, and molecular cuisine, grill masters from the Iberian peninsula were setting the world of barbecue, well, on fire. Like Basque grill master, Victor Arguinzoniz, whose grilled shrimp calls for olive oil and txakoli wine misted from spray bottles.

8:00 pm 
Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "Fired Up, Down Under"  Ozzies (Australians) and Kiwis (New Zealanders) may live half a world away, but they're every bit as grilling-obsessed as we North Americans are. Case in point: an Australian favorite, the proverbial "shrimp on the barbie," grilled here with basil and prosciutto and flambeed with Pernod. Or apostles on horseback-New Zealand sea scallops marinated in wine and grilled with smoky bacon. D

8:30 pm 
Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen  "Primal Grills for a Crowd"  Cook indoors and you often cook solo. Light a grill and you cook for a crowd. This show focuses on grilling for parties. D

Habitable Planet, The  "Water Resources"  While essential to the lives of humans and animals, fresh water only accounts for six percent of the world's water supply.
