TODAY'S AFTERNOON PLAY, From Galway to Graceland (2.15pm R4) takes its title from a song by folkie hero Richard Thompson. He recorded the music but Sue Teddern's writing is the real draw, depicting a state of marital impasse that forces the wife to seek refuge in the landscape she dreamed of as a girl.

Later, Mary Ann Hobbs hosts coverage of The Brits 99 Live (8pm R1) when all will bow like fools before Robbie Williams.

In The Directors (10pm R2), the film critic Mark Kermode discusses the career of the athlete-turned-artist-turned-actor-turned-director Robert Redford (right). "I don't have a sense of myself as a legend," he says. Yeah, sure.
