If I Ruled the World (10pm BBC2) A sort of meeting of Have I Got News for You and Whose Line Is It Anyway as improv meets political satire. Guest comedians join host Clive Anderson and team captains Graeme Garden and Jeremy Hardy and try to persuade the studio audience to vote for them. Games include "Yes/No", in which contestants fend off as many questions as possible without giving a simple "yes" or "no", and "I Couldn't Disagree More", in which they have to argue against any and all statements thrown at them.
Night of the Eagle (12.30am C4) Otherwise known by the jollier title of Burn, Witch, Burn!, this is a stylish, low-budget British adaptation (from 1961) of Fritz Leiber's novel Conjure Wife. It stars Peter Wyngarde, the Australian actor who went on to be immortalised as Jason King, as a hard-headed, rational man - a psychology lecturer at a provincial university, who discovers that his wife and his colleagues have been dabbling in witchcraft. The extra-ordinary Kathleen Byron is in the support cast.Reuse content
