GI JANE (10pm Sky Premier) is never going to win any awards for the complexity of its plot. Ridley Scott's satellite premiere centres on the simple idea of a tough woman (played with intensity by a famously shaven-headed Demi Moore, right) who is training to become the first female Navy SEAL and battling against the brutal sexism in the military. But Scott directs proceedings with his usual panache and choreographs even the most brutal scenes with his trademark sense of style.

Sherlock Holmes is perfect company for a quiet Saturday night in. In The Hound of the Baskervilles (8pm Sky Cinema), the first of a triple- bill of the Baker Street sleuth's films (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and The Scarlet Claw follow), the wonderful pairing of Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce as Holmes and Dr Watson investigate this famous case.
