THE WEEKEND is dominated by Andrew Rissik's fine trilogy Troy, which begins tonight with King Priam and His Sons (8.30pm R3). Julian Glover plays the Trojan king, Michael Maloney is Hector, and Michael Sheen Paris, while Paul Scofield excels as the god Hermes.

More ancient myths are retold in Boogie Wonderland - The Story of Disco (7pm R2): Paul Nicholas takes us through the moves, with all the traditional tales of high-life at Studio 54.

Even older swingers might prefer The Dancebands (7pm R4), an hour-long look at their rise and fall; but that clashes with Elvis Costello (right) and Burt Bacharach in Concert (8pm R2), with Costello showing what a crooner he is at heart.
