PANTHER (Sat, 1.55am, C4). Inspiring film about the 1960s US black revolutionary organisation the Black Panthers. Made by veteran black film maker Mario Van Peebles. Good, but take the ending with a pinch of salt. On at a silly time, so if you haven't seen it before set the video. 

MORAL COMBAT: NATO AT WAR (Sun, 9pm, BBC2). Two hour documentary marking the first anniversary of the Balkan War. Put together by BBC correspondent Alan Little, who is a Balkans expert. Difficult to tell from the publicity whether it uncovers NATO's imperialist war aims. 

TO DIE FOR (Sun, 10pm, C4). Wicked black comedy about the power of television. Stars Nicole Kidman as the ambitious young woman who'll resort to anything to be a TV star. 

GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME (Sun, 10.45pm, BBC1). More laughs with the Asian comedy crew. 

PANORAMA (Mon, 10pm, BBC1). Promises to take apart New Labour spin doctors' claims about increased spending in the NHS. 

THE CRUCIBLE (Mon, 10pm, C4). Superb 1996 adaptation of the Arthur Miller play stars Daniel Day-Lewis and Winona Ryder. Miller uses the 17th century Salem witch trials to say something about the 1950s anti-Communist witch-hunt in the US.
