What to watch.

I'm in Charge (ITV1Wales,11.35pm) Clive Norling stepped down from his post as the Welsh Rugby Union's Director of Referees recently,ending his 30-year association with the game.

This programme profiles the man described as probably the best ever international referee. Clive relives the highlights of his career and the disappointments. He failed to achieve his international ambition of refereeing a World Cup Final as he fell foul of officialdom.

Former Wales and British Lions captain and coach John Dawes tells why he believes Norling was such an outstanding practitioner of his art. Rugby legend Ray Gravell talks about Norling's presence and empathy with the players as well as the time when he paraded at Ray's beloved Stradey Park in tight, tight shorts and a curly perm which drew wolf whistles from female and male supporters alike!

Later with Jools Holland (BBC2 Wales,11.35pm) Joining Jools this week are rock giants Radiohead,Billy Corgan's post-SmashingPumpkins band Zwan, and Cuban legend and Buena Vista Social Club star Ibrahim Ferrer.

Radiohead are Oxford's biggest musical export who return on the eve of the launch of their sixth studio album, Hail to the Thief. Billy Corgan put together his first official post-Pumpkins band,Zwan,in late 2001 after a brief stint performing with New Order.

Ibrahim Ferrer began performing at the age of 14. In the 1950s,he was fronting Pacho Alonso's Havana- based orchestra and in 1997 was lured out of retirement to make his recording debut.
