Sliding Doors (BBC2, 10.10pm).

SLIDING DOORS follows the extraordinary dual tales of Helen Quilley, who has just been fired from her public relations job.

The plot splits into two different paths at the beginning - in one she catches the train home and arrives in time to find her boyfriend in bed with his exgirlfriend, while in the other she doesn''t, and carries on unaware of his infidelity.

As time passes, this one small event sends Helen''s life in two very different directions, but it seems that you can''t escape destiny.

The movie is a fascinating concept and very well told. Gwyneth Paltrow is excellent as two versions of the same woman, shaped by different experiences.

The role remains one of Gwyneth's best. However, Minnie Driver was originally offered the lead role of Helen.
