COSTUME DRAMA

Pride And Prejudice, midday, Yesterday

EVERYONE remembers Colin Firth's wet shirt, but there is much else to admire in Andrew Davies's clever Austen adaptation. Jennifer Ehle -- the best thing about recent movie Contagion -- is captivating as Elizabeth (pictured with Firth). All six parts show today.

MOVIE MUSICAL

Moulin Rouge!, 5.50pm, Sky Modern Greats

BAZ LUHRMANN'S seductive extravaganza, with Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman as the chancer and the courtesan drawn to each other, come what may. Typical genre-defying stuff.

FREEVIEW MOVIE

Scrooged, 6.55pm, Film4

AN INGENIOUS update of Dickens's A Christmas Carol, with Bill Murray as the miserly TV exec getting his just deserts at the hands of a trio of spectres -- and putting a little love in his heart.

DARTS

World Championship, 7pm, Sky Sports 2
