(1993, Drama) Steven Spielberg's harrowing multi-Oscar-winning fact-based drama chronicles Austrian businessman Oskar Schindler's attempts to save Jews from Auschwitz by allowing them to work in his factory, an act of mercy made possible by a deal struck with a sadistic German commandant. Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley and Ralph Fiennes head the cast of this wartime epic, shot in black and white with colour segments. If this is too much realism for you of a Saturday, there's always Michael Mann's crime thriller Heat at 9.55pm over on BBC2. It was a huge talking point of 1995 as Robert De Niroa and Al Pacino (kind've) shared a screen, and it was around the time when Val Kilmer really started letting himself go. If, for some reason, you're not on talking terms with yourself - why not subject your eyes to Days of Thunder afterwards. It's on at 11.20pm on Channel 4.
