Why not let the stresses of the week fade and kick off the long weekend by taking in one of the fine films airing on TV tonight.

Here's our guide to what's on offer this evening.

Moonraker - 8pm - ITV 4

The 11th in the James Bond series and the fourth to star Roger Moore as 007, the film is notable for taking the iconic spy into space.

The Last Stand - 9pm - Virgin Media One

Noteworthy for being Arnold Schwarzenegger's first lead acting role since Terminator 3, this action-thriller focuses on a tough small-town sheriff who must stop a dangerous drug lord from escaping to Mexico in a modified sports car.

Also starring Forest Whitaker and Johnny Knoxville, it's surprisingly good and easily the best of Arnie's movies since he returned to acting.
