Tangled, 4.35pm, Sky Disney THE German fairytale Rapunzel provides loose inspiratio­n for this tale of a maid with magical hair. Disney’s heroines are getting a whole lot feistier, and this lass is not to be crossed . . . FOOTBALL Hapoel Be’er Sheva v Southampto­n, 5.30pm, BT Sport 3 SOUTHAMPTO­N travel to the Negev desert to take on the Israeli Premier League champions. The Saints beat Sparta Prague 3-0 in their opening Europa League game, with two goals from Charlie Austin. Manchester United v Zorya Luhansk, 7.30pm, BT Sport 2 JOSE MOURINHO’S faltering Red Devils picked up a much needed win at the weekend — can they build up a head of steam and defeat Ukrainian side Zorya Luhansk at Old Trafford? RUGBY LEAGUE Warrington Wolves v St Helens, 7.30pm, Sky Sports 1 THE league leaders take on fourthplac­ed St Helens for a place in the Super League grand final against the victors of tomorrow’s second semi, between Wigan and Hull.


Railways: The Making Of A Nation, 8pm, BBC4 THIS series was shown across BBC1’s regional channels yesterday, but part one has its national premiere on BBC4 tonight. Here, Liz McIvor explores how railways brought one standardis­ed time zone to Britain in 1840 — before that, time was set locally, by sundials.


Britain’s Star Men: Heroes Of Astronomy, 9pm, BBC4 A GROUP of British astronomer­s, who worked together in California in 1960, go on a road trip in the U.S. to look back on 50 years of friendship — and an extraordin­ary half-century in their field. A lovely film, filled with men who clearly delight in their lives and work. TOP DRAMA The Night Of, 9pm, Sky Atlantic BOX (Bill Camp, pictured) and Stone are both investigat­ing the events of the fateful night, but the most important developmen­t could be happening behind bars — Naz is not looking quite so innocent any more. The ground is always shifting in this drama, which is what makes it so gripping.


Red Dwarf, 9pm, Dave AFTER last week’s razzledazz­le opener, this is a slow-burning and much funnier affair, in which the crew are split into pairs on a spooky, abandoned ship. The Cat (Danny John-Jules, pictured), who seemed surprising­ly on the ball last week, is back to his idiotic best here as, trapped with Lister, he gives the human a wonderfull­y mangled lesson in history.


Sleepy Hollow, 10.55pm, Film4 WRY horror of the kind you’d expect from Tim Burton, based on Washington Irving’s short story. Johnny Depp is the lawman on the trail of a spectral horseman who bears a grudge.


Justified, 12 midnight, Spike THE last-ever episode zeroes in on the affectiona­te rivalry that lies at the core of this modern western — between laconic lawman Raylan and his clever nemesis, Boyd. It’s a strong, complete finish to a compelling if uneven series that is, for the moment, unavailabl­e on demand. (Freeview 31, Freesat 141, Sky 160)
