Film choice

The Outlaw Josey Wales (9pm, TCM Movies)
Clint Eastwood directs and stars as a farmer who, scarred by the killing of his wife and child in the civil war, goes on the warpath. It’s an epic tale of vengeance and redemption, with colourful characters, an eye for a landscape and humour in the undercutting of Clint’s icy image. Paul Howlett
