Has any British director more accurately chronicled our social mores than Mike Leigh? A double-bill of his work tonight kicks off with his exquisitely- observed suburban comedy, Life is Sweet (8.10pm FilmFour), which is followed by his sharp portrait of a devious misogynist (David Thewlis) in Naked (10pm FilmFour).Reuse content
GARETH EDWARDS (right) is the scorer of perhaps the most famous try in rugby history - that titanic end-to-end effort (immortalised by Cliff Morgan's commentary) for the Barbarians against the All Blacks in the 1970s. But more than that, he was the dream scrum-half, able to pass, kick or run with equal facility. It is hard to think of a more complete rugby player in the game's history. He is profiled tonight in Dickie Davies' Sporting Heroes (10pm Sky Sports 3).
