15.00pm The Spy in Black (U) 1939

A German spy falls for an apparently sympathetic schoolteacher during a World War One mission. But he doesn't suspect the object of his affections is actually an English double agent, a revelation which jeopardises an operation to destroy the British fleet in the Orkneys in 1917. This out-of-the-ordinary romantic melodrama was Powell and Pressburger's first collaboration. Conrad Veidt, Valerie Hobson and Marius Goring are among the cast (888)

16.55pm A Countess from Hong Kong (PG) 1967

A Russian countess flees her homeland, and stows away in a wealthy American diplomat's suite on a boat from Hong Kong to Hawaii. Romantic comedy, starring Sophia Loren, Sydney Chaplin and Tippi Hedren

19.00pm The African Queen (PG) 1951

A cinematic gem, this romantic adventure features the perfect pairing of Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. He won his only Oscar for his performance as the booze-sodden captain of a steamer, while she stars as a prim missionary who turns to him for help when violence erupts. But the barbed animosity between them begins to fade away as they face increasing danger. Robert Morley, Peter Bull and Theodore Bikel offer support (888)

21.00pm Notting Hill (15) 1999

A scatterbrained bookshop owner falls for a multi-millionaire film star in writer Richard Curtis's smash-hit follow-up to Four Weddings and a Funeral. Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts are perfect as the unlikely couple, who face all manner of obstacles to make their romance work. Rhys Ifans delivers a great performance as Grant's wacky flatmate. Feelgood romantic comedy, with Emma Chambers, James Dreyfus, Gina McKee, Hugh Bonneville and Tim McInnerny (888)

23.20pm Wolf Creek (18) 2005 Premiere.

Three backpackers become stranded in the Australian outback when their car breaks down, and are assisted by a seemingly friendly local. However, the trio wake the next day to find themselves in a living nightmare as their deranged host shows his violent side. Disturbing horror, loosely based on real-life events. John Jarratt stars as the blood-thirsty maniac, with Nathan Phillips, Cassandra Magrath and Kestie Morassi as his hapless victims

01.15am Rome, Open City (15) 1945

Roberto Rossellini's award-winning World War Two drama, penned by Federico Fellini, chronicling events in Rome as a courageous few struggle against the might of the Nazis. Anna Magnani, Aldo Fabrizi, Harry Feist and Marcello Pagliero star. Beautiful stuff, well worth watching
