HELENA BONHAM CARTER (right) gave an Oscar-nominated performance in The Wings of a Dove (8pm Sky Premier), Iain Softley's adaptation of the Henry James novel, beautifully shot in London and Venice. She plays a scheming woman who is determined that her lover, Linus Roache, should inherit the wealth of a terminally-ill friend. Charlotte Rampling plays the disapproving aunt whose snobbery sets events in motion.

War Zone, Tim Roth's first film as a director, is currently being lauded by the critics. In Bodies Rest and Motion (8pm Film Four) he plays a selfish TV salesman in a portrait of Arizona's loafing-set.

Meanwhile The Directors (5.30pm Sky Cinema) offers a contrasting view of cinema with a profile of ex-Monty Python member now turned movie maker, Terry Gilliam.
