If anyone reading this column telephoned ATV and requested that Love And Betrayal: The Mia Farrow Story (World, 12.50am) be aired again would they please call and let me know. The people at ATV tell me this is the reason the biographical drama is being shown less than two months after we last had the opportunity to watch it, then in the prime 8.30pm slot. Maybe viewers were entranced by Patsy Kensit's portrayal of the doe-like actress but the idea that ATV could have responded so quickly to such pleas puzzles me. I try to represent viewers in this column and, while you cannot please everyone all of the time, the comments I receive from readers suggest that they are, in the main, in agreement with most of my remarks, which err on the critical side. A couple of weeks ago I lambasted ATV over its lack of professionalism; it was not the first and will not, I am sure, be the last time I do so. While I received numerous calls from viewers supporting my comments and asking me what ATV had to say for itself, I received not a letter, not a fax, not a phone call from the company. Such silence when you are being so publicly criticised only leads one to think that the people up on Broadcast Drive actually agree with me, feeling there is little they can say in response or defence. We can see from tonight's repeat how quickly the station is capable of responding to popular demand if it wishes to do so. Let us see if ATV is also capable of responding quickly to my request that it acts a little more selectively when deciding which programmes to repeat and when. You would think on a night when nothing more than racing and the rather naive Friday The 13th (World, 10.45pm) is being screened in the adult slot that it would care more about giving its viewers something a little fresh. Does the station not care whether anyone watches World or is it because it knows it cannot compete with TVB Pearl's late-night viewing on a Wednesday and has decided to abandon the race altogether? Writing about television is beginning to take its toll on my subconscious: there was the dream I had a while back which started and finished with credits rolling, many of my dreams are now futuristic (keeping up, no doubt, with The X-Files and its many imitations), but, this week, things began to look up. In less than one week, I spent three nights dreaming about ER (Pearl, 9.30pm) heart-throb, the molten-eyed George Clooney. Maybe it was because he played such a small part in last week's particularly exciting episode when Lewis heroically overcame her fear of flying to help save a family involved in a car accident. This week, Benton becomes obsessed with Megan, the baby in the accident whose condition is critical because of his error. Keaton (played excellently by Glenne Headly) orders Benton to observe the baby in order to learn patience. Sterling, the incompetent nurse Hathaway swore would not work in the emergency room, returns only to commit another grave error while caring for an accident victim. Hathaway vows to report her but Sterling claims she has been unfairly assigned to the ER because the hospital administration wants to force her out before she can collect her pension. Ross confronts Green about his sanctimonious behaviour after his date died in the emergency room after using cocaine. It seems to me that an increasing number of commercials are being aired in Cantonese on TVB and ATV. While I appreciate the target market is mainly Chinese, it is irritating not being able to understand ads on English-language channels.
