TUBE TALES (9pm Sky Premier, right) is an intriguing idea co-ordinated by film critic Richard Jobson - a collection of nine shorts set on the London Underground. Given the number of different directors, inclduing Ewan McGregor (right), Bob Hoskins, Armando Iannucci and Jude Law, the quality is inevitably uneven, but actors such as Ray Winstone, Daniela Nardini, Jason Flemyng, Rachel Weisz and Denise Van Outen all turn in strong performances.

Bill Murray excels at comic bafflement and is well cast in the lead of Jon Amiel's The Man Who Knew Too Little (10pm Sky Moviemax), showing on satellite for the first time tonight. He plays one of life's bumblers who unwittingly finds himself in a full-on spy imbroglio involving a dodgy assassin (Alfred Molina) and a slinky femme fatale (Joanne Whalley).
