DICK CLEMENT and Ian La Frenais have been responsible for some of our finest TV comedy over the past few decades. They have also had some successful forays into cinema, with such films as The Commitments (10pm FilmFour), an adaptation of the Roddy Doyle novel about the formation of a working-class soul band in Dublin. Alan Parker directs the then largely unknown cast - led by Robert Arkins as the band's smooth-talking manager - with a real sense of verve. The memorable soundtrack includes renditions of such classics as "Mustang Sally", belted out by Andrew Strong (right), who plays the group's lead singer.

Live Golf USA (5.30pm Sky Sports 2) today covers the fourth golf major of the year, the PGA Championship. At the Medinah Country Club in Illinois, British and US players will be hoping to clinch places for the Ryder Cup.
