ANDY GARCIA does troubled very well. He has cause to look that way quite a bit in Sidney Lumet's conspiracy thriller, Night Falls on Manhattan (10pm Sky Premier). He plays a New York lawyer alarmed to discover that someone close to home may be caught up in law enforcement corruption. Lena Olin (The Unbearable Lightness of Being) plays a fellow lawyer and love interest, while the always reliable Ian Holm takes the role of Garcia's father. Lumet, who has trodden similar territory before in films such as Serpico, Prince of the City and Q & A, handles proceedings with his customary aplomb.

Reports that Eric Clapton (right) may give up performing live will have distressed his fans. They can be reminded of what they might soon be missing with Eric Clapton - 24 Hours (12midn't VH-1).
