A CHESS match serves as a metaphor for the ideological battleground between what was then clearly East and West in the 1983 thriller Dangerous Moves (World, 12.15am, Original Running Time 110 minutes). The movie, which won Best Foreign Film Oscar, centres on the intense rivalry between the ailing Soviet champion Liebskind (Michel Piccoli) and his former pupil Fromm (Alexander Arbatt), a defector whom the Soviet authorities now want to humiliate. Described by film critic Barry Norman as ''the thinking man's Rocky IV '', Dangerous Moves exposes the often bizarre underhand tactics employed by both sides to try to put off the rival player. Leslie Caron (who can be seen again in the Oscar-winning Gigi next week) plays Liebskind's companion, while Liv Ullman is Fromm's estranged wife. ROY Scheider (Jaws) plays a photographer hired by a small-time Florida drug-dealer to document his execution by electric chair in Somebody Has To Shoot The Picture (Pearl, 9.45pm, ORT 105 mins). The drug-dealer has been condemned to death for killing a cop, but while preparing to carry out his morbid assignment, Scheider uncovers new evidence on the case. A watchable thriller. MY Science Project (World, 9.30pm, ORT 94 mins) is watchable only for Dennis Hopper's appearance as an ageing hippie teacher. Otherwise, it's an embarrassing comedy about a group of high-school kids who discover bits of an UFO that can create time and space warps. Pity it couldn't create a black hole and fall in. IN Eye on Hongkong (Pearl, 7.35pm), Katie Ledger finds out what it's like to watch Category III films for a living, when she talks to two of the film censors working for Hongkong's watchdog body, TELA (Television Entertainment and Licensing Authority). Let's hope she asks why just about any amount of violence seems acceptable for TV audiences, while the merest hint of a sex scene is severed regardless of context. Sacre bleu! French enfant de chanson Jordy gets even more local exposure today, when he appears on the show. He's the sprog with the hit single Dur Dur d'etre Bebe (It's Tough, It's Tough to be a Baby) who's been seen, heard and read about on and in virtually every Hongkong organ in the past few weeks. Dur Dur d'etre le viewer discerning. ROUND the Twist (Pearl, 6.15pm) is a new 13-part sitcom from Australia, about a family who move into a lighthouse which turns out to be haunted. The first encounter with their ghostly tenants takes place in the outside dunny. THE MTV Rockumentary (MTV, 2.30am) focuses on George Michael, who discusses his childhood, current solo career and even those heady days in Wham! - rather sporting considering he'd surely prefer to forget such classics as Wake Me Up Before You Go Go?. Andrew Ridgeley, his strictly sleeping partner in Wham!, also gets a look-in.
