Johnny Cash: The Man, His World, The Music, 9.00pm BBC 4
Part of Country Nights on BBC Four and BBC Radio 2. This is a rare chance to see Robert Elfstrom’s 1969 classic film, which captures the Man In Black as he reaches the first of many peaks in his roller-coaster career. Fresh on the heels of his Folsom Prison album, Cash reveals the dark intensity and raw talent that made him a country music star and cultural icon. Director Robert Elfstrom got closer than any other filmmaker to Cash, who is seen performing with his new bride June Carter Cash; in a rare duet with Bob Dylan; and behind the scenes with friends, family and aspiring young musicians. Hard to believe Cash is dead since 2003.
The Works, 8.30pm, RTÉ One
