WALTER HILL is one of the best action directors around. Three years after The Warriors - which showed a gang fighting its way across the unforgiving terrain of New York City - he covered similar themes in Southern Comfort (10.45pm FilmFour), an atmospheric film set in the swamplands of the Deep South. With a touch of Deliverance about it, the film centres on the attempts by a group of National Guardsmen on a training weekend to battle their way out of the home patch of some violent Cajuns. Heading the cast are Keith Carradine, Powers Boothe and Fred Ward.

With the storming success of Mamma Mia! it seems as if Swedish popsters Abba (right) are as popular now as they were in their 1970s heyday. You can wallow in nostalgia for the real thing with the Greatest Hits of... Abba (1pm VH1).
