MANY WERE disappointed by the latest offering from Gotham City, Batman and Robin (8pm Sky Premier), which receives its satellite premiere tonight. The Crusader's cape is now worn by ER's George Clooney (right), but for all the criticism the film received, he still manages to encounter an eye-catching array of baddies in the the venomous Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) and chilling Mr Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger).

The candidates for the title of most evil man of the century are many, but Pol Pot must be near the top of the list. Biography (9pm History Channel) tonight profiles the perpetrator of one of the world's most terrible reigns, charts his life from his days as a student radical in Paris to his stint as the ruler of the appallingly ruthless Khmer Rouge government in the Cambodia of the 1970s.
