A Streetcar Named Desire (CBS, 8-11 p.m.): Jessica Lange and Alec Baldwin draw on their Broadway performances in Tennessee Williams's Pulitzer Prize-winning play for this TV rendition. Set in a New Orleans tenement in the 1940s, the story portrays the fragile Blanche DuBois (Lange), who moves in with her sister (Diane Lane) and brother-in-law (Baldwin).

Production designer Fred Harpman paid close attention to details for the film's set, including muted colors that harmonize with the actors' costumes, and vintage '40s wallpaper. The play was produced and directed by six-time Emmy winner Glenn Jordan.

This edition of the documentary series, entitled ''High Stakes in Cyberspace,'' looks at what businesses have to gain from on-line ventures - when immediate yields look low. Discussions with venture capitalists, software designers, and advertisers shed light on the social and cultural revolution that cyber-commerce has the potential to bring about.
