PETER FONDA has not generally maintained as high a profile as Dennis Hopper, his co-star in Easy Rider, the film that made them both. However, he made a notable splash in Ulee's Gold (8pm Sky Premier, right), Victor Nunez's well-made film, showing on satellite for the first time tonight. Fonda gained critical plaudits as well as an Oscar nomination for his understated performance as a beekeeper in the north Florida swamplands who is struggling to bring up two granddaughters in the absence of his imprisoned son. Trouble flares when his son's criminal associates resurface.
