THE new hunk on the Ramsay St block is Dan Paris.

Aged 24 and hailing from Perth, where he was a champion swimmer, accountant and model, Paris joins the long-running soap Neighbours (Ten, 6.30pm) as Andrew Kirk, Lou's new mechanic.

Andrew, who apparently prefers to be called `Drew', is a suitably spunky rival for established stud Ben, who thinks his boss has shafted him as he recovers from his car accident.

THE British documentary Nuclear Nomads: The Bikini Islanders (SBS, 7.30pm) introduces the Bikini Islanders who want to clean up their South Pacific island, which was poisoned by a series of US nuclear tests conducted after World War II.

DOCTORS in crisis Doug Ross (George Clooney) and Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards) escape the ER in E.R. (NBN/Nine, 8.30pm) for a moving road trip-cum-journey to self-discovery.

ON Outback Adventures (Prime/Seven, 8.30pm) Troy Dann musters water buffalo for an overseas client, the Sultan of Brunei, and rounds up some donkeys for sale to a circus.

Meanwhile, Simone Dann shows how to cook buffalo.

TELEVISION medico Dr Kerryn Phelps talks about her recent marriage to Jackie Stricker, a teacher in a Sydney private school on Australian Story (ABC, 8.30pm).

Caroline Jones introduces the story.

IN the absence of Prime/Seven's Homicide: Life on The Street, there is simply no better cop show on the box than Steven Bochco's NYPD Blue (Ten, 8.30pm).

Tonight's episode is the first half of a two-part storyline in which detectives Andy Sipowitz (Dennis Franz) and Bobby Simone (Jimmy Smits) suspect that an eight-year-old boy reported missing by his affluent parents has been abused and murdered by his father.

The father tries to blame a mute homeless man called Israel, who tries to communicate using passages from his Bible.

Franz and Smits are in fine form and next week's conclusion is a heart-stopper.

THE Big Picture documentary Born Under The Red Flag (ABC, 9.30pm) examines modern China's economic reforms.
