What’s Love Got to Do With It (Brian Gibson, 1993, 9pm, 5Star)

A gutsy biopic of Tina Turner, played with belting power by Angela Bassett. Based on the singer’s autobiography, it’s very Tina-friendly, but there’s much to admire in her rise to the top, weathering the storm that was her abusive husband, Ike (Laurence Fishburne), along the way. Great songs, too. Paul Howlett
