Munich Games

9pm, Sky Atlantic

This month marks 50 years since the Palestinian terrorist group Black September killed 12 people at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. In this multi-language, six-part political thriller, a friendly football match between an Israeli and a German team is planned to commemorate the attack. However, this prompts another threat of terrorism. Mossad agent Oren Simon (Yousef “Joe” Sweid) teams up with no-nonsense German police officer Maria Köehler (Seyneb Saleh) to trace who has been making cyber threats. From the off, tonight’s double bill is packed with tension, mistrust and action – with a bonus pinch of raunch. HR

Cold Mountain (Anthony Minghella, 2003), 8pm, Sky Cinema Greats
Anthony Minghella nailed the kind of epic drama that used to be common Hollywood currency with this 2003 historical romance. Jude Law plays Inman, a Confederate soldier who deserts to return to his true love, Ada (Nicole Kidman), in North Carolina’s Appalachians. A well-off preacher’s daughter, Ada struggles to work her farm alone after her father’s death, until the no-nonsense Ruby (a boisterous, Oscar-winning Renée Zellweger) turns up to set her right. A film of sumptuous landscapes and sweeping emotions, with distinct Homeric overtones. Simon Wardell
