He may not always have the most solid grip of plot, but one thing director David Lynch (right) does possess is a wonderfully quirky imagination. That bears fruit in Dune (8pm FilmFour), his confusing yet visually stunning reading of a sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert. Watch out for the sandworms. The eclectic cast features Kyle MacLachlan, Francesca Annis, Max Von Sydow and Sting.Reuse content
CHARIOTS OF FIRE (8pm Sky Cinema) remains famous for script-writer Colin Welland's Oscar-night declaration that "the British are coming" - still, sadly, unfulfilled. The film itself is an old-fashioned but effective tale of sporting rivalry. It focuses on the build-up to the 1924 Olympics of two contrasting British runners: the Jewish sprinter Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross), and Scottish Christian quarter-miler Eric Liddell (Ian Charleson).
