TOWARDS THE end of his career, Laurence Olivier (right) took some roles whose artistic quality was open to question. Not that he minded much. As he put it: "nothing is beneath me if it pays well." Quite right, too. After films such as Wuthering Heights, Henry V, Hamlet and The Entertainer, nobody could really fault his cinematic CV. That is examined in depth in tonight's Hollywood Hall of Fame (9.30pm Sky Cinema), which is followed by his highly memorable performance opposite Joan Fontaine in Alfred Hitchcock's 1940 version of Rebecca (10pm).

Cliff Morgan may be known to younger generations as the long-running presenter of Radio 4's Sport on 4, but the man who is profiled in Dickie Davies' Sporting Heroes (2pm Sky Sports 3) was also a great Welsh rugby player in his time.
