DIRECTOR PETER GREENAWAY has a rare talent for provoking strong reactions - Ken Russell is among those to have protested about his films. Typically, critics were divided about The Pillow Book (10.05pm FilmFour), an idiosyncratic film which bears out a comment the director once made that: "I'm not a film-maker. I'm a painter in cinema." Proving he does not just go in for big box-office work such as the new Star Wars film, Ewan McGregor stars as a man who becomes embroiled with an alluring bisexual woman (Vivian Wu) who draws books on his body.

Barnsley vs Tottenham (7.30pm Sky Sports 3) is the rescheduled sixth round FA cup tie which was originally called off due to bad weather. Tottenham fans will be hoping that French winger, David Ginola (right), continues his rich vein of form.
