Kate Walsh 6.30pm, Live From Studio Five Magnum Force ITV4, 9pm (1973) CLINT EASTWOOD, above, returns as Inspector Harry Callahan in the first of too many sequels. But this one is full of action and has a great plot. Callahan notices that a lot of bad guys are being knocked off in San Francisco and begins to suspect that rogue cops could be behind the killing spree. Also stars Hal Holbrook, David Soul, Robert Urich and Tim Matheson. My Cousin Vinnie Film4, 1.30am (1992) MARISA TOMEI, above with Joe Pesci, won an Academy Award for her role in this fish- out-of-water comedy -- and she fully deserved it.

Trouble is, Vinny is not what youd call the most experienced legal eagle. Black Hawk Down Five, 10pm (2001) AT SOME point in their careers, all good directors have a crack at a war movie.

After two Black Hawk helicopters are shot down, a long chase sequence begins as US troops try to escape a firefight. Stars Ewan McGregor, above, Josh Hartnett and Eric Bana. The Dukes Of Hazzard ITV2, 11.30pm (2005) THE original Seventies TV series was pretty pointless, featuring two hick-town guys racing around in a car while being chased half-heartedly by crooked and stupid cops. This movie version has all the same elements -- especially the pointless bit -- only it lacks the series nostalgia value. Mindless entertainment which is worth watching simply for Burt Reynolds, above, as Boss Hogg. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html
