The Krays (Peter Medak, 1990), 9pm, ITV4
Peter Medak’s honest account of the lives of the villainous twins Ron and Reg, who rose through a spot of GBH to murderous rule of the East End of London, then went up west and got into bother. Gary and Martin Kemp of Spandau Ballet make a surprisingly strong fist of playing the brothers, but it’s Billie Whitelaw who turns out toughest of all as their mum, Violet. Paul Howlett
