Farmer Kevin Costner has an epiphany, builds a baseball field in his corn field, and watches long dead baseball stars play there. We’re not sure what it means, but it leaves you with a warm feeling.

Food critic Carly Pope promises a restaurateur a good review if he’ll take her distracting mum Christine Baranski off her hands for a while. Don’t look for too much silver in this Christmas pudding but there’s the odd sixpence. Anthony Zimmer 9.35pm, SBS TWO ★★★ M. 2005. Nerdy Yvan Attal can’t believe his luck when he’s picked up on a train by the lovely Sophie Marceau. When he is shot at, he realises he’s been set up and those on his trail believe he’s one of the world’s most wanted men. Slick, well-scripted thriller forgoes action for intrigue 36 Quai Des Orfevres 10.05pm, SBS ONE ★★★ AV. 2004. Gritty, dark French view of police methodology and corruption with Daniel Auteuil and Gerard Depardieu as cops competing for the police commissioner’s job promised to the first to break a violent criminal gang. The line between police and criminals has seldom been drawn so fine. Terrific drama.
