Several Careful Owners (10.20pm BBC2) If you've come late to this programme, it's a small gem of a series which is based on a similar idea to The House Detectives. Instead of the previous owners of a house, it's the former owners of a particular car - this week, a 1951 Humber Pullman Estate - who are traced. A fruit-and-veg salesman and a publican are among those who have put just 28,000 miles on the clock.
Women and Men: Stories of Seduction (10pm C4) Directors Frederic Raphael, Ken Russell and Tony Richardson adapt tales of seduction by, respectively, Mary McCarthy, Dorothy Parker and Ernest Hemingway in this 1990 made-for-cable venture. The best of the compendium is the Richardson/Hemingway segment, with writer James Woods suggesting that his girlfriend (Melanie Griffith) has an abortion. Elizabeth McGovern, Peter Weller and Molly Ringwald star in the other two.Reuse content
