SATURDAY TV: TONIGHT'S HIGHLIGHTS.
CASUALTY (BBC 1, 8.15pm)
HIS reputation as Casualty's bad boy often dogs Ian Kelsey away from the TV cameras.
Ian gets the chance to be arrogant, brusque and bad-tempered on Casualty as A&E registrar Patrick Spiller, but some people don't realise it's all just an act.
"A bread delivery guy was coming out of a shop and I held the door for him," says Ian. "He didn't say thank you, just 'you wouldn't have done that on the telly'.
"But I really don't get any hostility. It must mean I'm somehow putting across the fact that there really is a nice bloke behind the brick wall that Patrick puts up."
TOP TEN: EASY LISTENING (C4, 9.10pm)
SIT back and enjoy some of the crooners who brought a softer side to the music charts.
Channel 4 offers Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra and Burt Bacarach for starters and Andy Williams himself presents the tribute to the stars who put the cool into crooning.
There are lots of interesting titbits to enjoy along the way. For a start, legendary booze-hound Dean Martin was actually the most stay-at-home of the infamous Rat Pack in America. So much so that he would sabotage his own parties if he though they were going on too late by phoning the police from an upstairs room to complain about the noise.
