King of the desert

There are epic films and then there’s 1962’s “Lawrence of Arabia” (7 p.m. Saturday, TCM), which remains one of the most powerful stories in cinematic history. Even on the small screen, Peter O’Toole’s performance is towering. The four-hour running time will fly right by.

Let’s get ready to rumble

What does it take to prepare for a major fight, even a staged one? Find out as “WrestleMania: The World Television Premiere” (8 p.m. Saturday, KARE, Ch. 11) takes you behind the scenes of the rematch between the Rock and John Cena.

The fast and furious

“RIDE-iculous” (7:30 p.m. Sunday, Travel) gives viewers a chance to feel what it’s like to drop 630 feet from a building in 11 seconds, soar at 126 miles per hour across a dry lake bed, and roll 800 feet down a steep hill in a water-filled bubble. Vomit bag not included.
