It features interviews with those who knew him best - including his daughter Jamillah Ali, journalist Gary Younge and Olympic swimmer Janet Evans.

The film explores the impact of Ali's visit to Africa before focusing on the epic fight, dubbed the `Rumble in the Jungle", which has gone down in history as one of the greatest of all time.

This is fun. And nicely played out.

A black comedy, starring Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Billy Magnussen and Sharon Horgan, it pretty much fulfils the general need for a bit of fun on a Saturday.

Here's our review of Game Night.

A group of friends who meet for game nights become entangled in a real mystery when the shady brother of one of them is seemingly kidnapped by gangsters.

Maze, 9.45pm, RTÉ One

Starring Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Barry Ward and Martin McCann, this is pretty much an anti-date night movie if you’re not into prison breakouts.

It’s a drama inspired by the true events of the infamous 1983 prison breakout of 38 IRA prisoners from the Maze, which was to become the biggest prison escape in Europe since the Second World War.

As Paddy Kehoe, formerly of this parish, put it in his review: ‘You will be riveted to your seat in what is a refreshingly authentic film, which has not one false note.’
