SUNDAY Crew of the Enola Gay (8-9 p.m., A&E cable): Effective, sometimes harrowing documentary that follows the men who dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima as they retrace those apocalyptic events 45 years later. They actually tread on ``ground zero'' where the bomb fell, meet some of the victims face-to-face, and express feelings about things like the instant death of 80,000 people. Madonna - Live! (HBO cable, 9-11 p.m.): The final night of the pop singing star's ``Blond Ambition World Tour'' is covered live from Nice, France. All the dazzling effects are there - including Broadway-style lights, costumes, and dance - not to mention some of the show's Top Ten hits.

TUESDAY P.O.V. (PBS, 10-11 p.m.): `Kamala and Raji' - the names of two women of India - proves that individual attitude can make a difference. The film traces their day-to-lives and records their resourceful fight to beat the poverty and government exploitation that seemed so inevitable at first.

WEDNESDAY Castro's Cuba: Two Views (PBS, 9-11 p.m.): Is it a social paradigm or a tyranny? Depends on which picture of Cuba you accept: ``Uncompromising Revolution,'' a loving guided tour by Castro himself; or ``Nobody Listened,'' a compendium of horrors - from the lips of the victims - committed under the same man. The two hotly polemic films are introduced by National Public Radio's Scott Simon.
