ROCKY, RTE 2, FRI­DAY 9.30PM

A clas­sic movie from the 1980s, which has spurned a num­ber of se­quels and spin-offs, but the orig­i­nal is still the best.

Small-time Philadel­phia boxer Rocky Babloa gets the chance of a life­time when he is picked to take on reign­ing heavy­weight cham­pion Apollo Creed.

The fight scenes are graphic, but the mu­si­cal score is one of the most fa­mous in movie his­tory and it is the role that made Sylvester Stal­lone’s ca­reer.
