BBC HD this weekend

Good news; this weekend sees no fewer than two films on BBC HD, both new to the channel.
On Saturday night at 10.45pm Kenneth Branagh's curious japanese take on As You Like It airs; not his best Shakespeare adaptation in my book, but a treat for the old optic nerves. Then on Sunday at 10.30pm a real gem: George Clooney's excellent Good Night, Good Luck, which may be in black and white but should still be something in HD.
Also, the new BBC3 series Being Human is on BBC HD, though not as a simulcast - showing on Sunday at midnight.
