There is a minimum of plot and a maximum of special effects in The Golden Voyage Of Sinbad (World, 9.35 pm), which only adds to the fun. This is the sequel to The Seventh Voyage Of Sinbad and harks back to those great matinee adventures of the 1950s. The film's talking point is its special effects, concocted by Ray Harryhausen and including a six-armed, sword-wielding statue, a one-eyed centaur, a griffin and a host of other fantastic creatures. Sinbad (John Philip Law) encounters all of them, and a few more, on his quest to find a golden tablet that will restore a deposed ruler (Douglas Wilmer) to the throne. Harryhausen's effects, which won him an Oscar nomination, are of the stop-motion animation kind. Those of you who are interested will know what that means. Some of them are grotesque but all are entrancing. The film itself is generally silly but exciting. Tom Baker, who later played Dr Who in the British television series, makes a great villain. Look out also for Martin Shaw, who became one half of The Professionals. Will Elizabeth and Darcy get it together in the final episode of Jane Austen's Pride And Prejudice (Pearl, 9.30 pm), as done by those awfully good people at the BBC? Of course they will, but not before Bingley and Jane do likewise. This is a wedding episode to rival anything the writers of Dallas ever brewed up. How timely that TVB has made a documentary series about Hong Kong's historical buildings. Had they left it much longer there would not have been any left. This Home Of Ours (Pearl, 6.50 pm) was originally shown in Cantonese on Jade and is being shown on Pearl with English subtitles, with numerous cut-away shots of the back of our host's head as she diligently goes about her job of interviewing the few people in Hong Kong who know where its old buildings are. This evening's episode is a tour of Victorian Hong Kong, most of which has become steel and glass office space, but some of which can still be found in the shadows. Most notable Victorian buildings include Government House (try knocking that one down), Central Police Station, Matilda Hospital, the YMCA in Sheung Wan and Helena May Ladies' Club. Jeremy Brett is not Basil Rathbone but nevertheless makes a convincing, hook-nosed, pipe-smoking Sherlock Holmes in The Case Book Of Sherlock Holmes (STAR Plus, 11.30 pm). This is a contemporary television version addition to the Holmes canon, only distantly related to all those classics of the 1940s, in which Rathbone was teamed with Nigel Bruce (as Watson) and Lionel Atwill (Moriarty). In it Holmes is in great form, now entering a new century as Victorian London becomes Edwardian London. Edward Hardwick is Watson but alas, no Moriarty. Films on Cable Movie Channel: Firestarter (11 pm). Silly yarn from the Stephen King book of the same name about a girl (played by Drew Barrymore when she was much younger) whose parents were student guinea pigs for a government experiment and who has consequently acquired the power to set anything alight simply by staring at it. Waste of some good acting talent (Martin Sheen, David Keith), but it certainly gave gainful employment to an army of stunt and special effects men. Critic Roger Ebert said: 'The most astonishing thing about this movie is how boring it is.'
