7pm, Sky Sports 1

As the summer finally kicks in, what better way to avoid the inevitable sunburn than to scurry indoors and enjoy darts' most popular mid-year tournament?

On the other hand, the 1963 spectacle of the same name merely adapted Plutarch’s version of events. Today, Cleopatra has become shorthand for a bloated misfire of a film and is always cited as the one that nearly caused 20th Century-Fox to crumble. The studio survived and has had the last laugh, making a fortune off the film ever since. Out now is the overdue Blu-ray »
