MUCH DELAYED by re-shoots which meant that two directors were finally credited (Robert Young and Fred Schepsi), John Cleese's much-touted Fierce Creatures (10pm Sky Premier, right) never lives up to the high standards set by its wildly successful predecessor, A Fish Called Wanda. The plot revolves around the attempts of a new zoo director (Cleese) to satisfy his megalomaniacal boss (Kevin Kline) by disposing of all the furry animals and putting savage beasts in their place.

After a few weekends devoted to international action, the rugby union spotlight is now firmly on the domestic game. Bath vs Saracens (1.30pm Sky Sports 3), this afternoon's clash, promises to be quite a fierce encounter between the current holders of the European Cup and the winners of the domestic cup competition.
