The list of actors who have had success on television and then failed in films is a lengthy one. Granted there are a few exception in Michael Douglas (Streets of San Francisco), Tom Hanks (Bosom Buddies) and Bruce Willis (Moonlighting) who have made successful jumps to Hollywood, other actors such as Don Johnson, David Caruso, Bill Cosby and any of the Charlie's Angels have failed big time. Most of them eventually returned to television. In the 1960s, actor Doug McClure was experiencing his greatest acting success as Trampas on the television cowboy series The Virginian. The series was so popular it ran for eight years. Making the jump to film proved to be difficult as McClure became typecast as the king of the B-movie circuit battling dinosaurs and mutants in such forgettable epics as Humanoids From The Deep, People That Time Forgot and The House Where Evil Dwells. The Land That Time Forgot and At The Earth's Core (World, 9.30pm), would prove to be the exception in McClure's chequered career as the films would go on to become Sci-Fi cult favourites. In At the Earth's Core, McClure and Peter Cushing are Victorian-era inventors testing a geological excavator. When the pair burrow to the centre of the earth, they find a land inhabited by giant beasties and protohumans. Adapted from the Edgar Rice Burrough's novel, the film is full of special effects, some spectacular some quite cheesy. Two years ago, the Government signed a community charter pledging to raise AIDS awareness in the community. The charter pledged to adopt practices banning discrimination in the work place and to respect confidentiality. But concern groups say little has been done for Hong Kong's 700 AIDS sufferers as in the interim, discrimination against those with the deadly disease is rife. In the Pearl Report (Pearl, 8pm), host Diana Lin speaks with activists who point to schools for much of the ignorance about the condition as surveys show teenagers lack basic sex education. The programme also examines a $350 million AIDS trust fund set up in 1993 and investigates why 80 per cent of the money remains untouched due to funding delays. In Natural Neighbours (World, 6.30pm), Addicted To Swans profiles the majestic birds and the human passion they inspire around the world. In the Scottish Highlands, a man orchestrates a Swan Theatre on a tranquil loch, while in Northern Japan, a village has a festival to celebrates the arrival of Siberian swans, marking the start of winter. On cable, with the American presidential election looming, CNN presents Democracy In America '96 (CNNI, 9am), a seven-hour documentary that profiles the concerns of the American people and the men who are vying for their vote.
