SUNDAY Trans-Antarctica: The International Expedition (ABC, 7-8 p.m.): Second in a five-part series covering an unmechanized trek to the South Pole - the first of its kind, claims ABC.

Moscow Night (10-11 p.m., A&E cable network): Coverage of the final of five sold-out Moscow concerts given by Dave Brubeck and his quartet in 1987 (please see preview in tomorrow's section). MONDAY American Masters (PBS, 9-10 p.m.): ``Neil Simon: Not Just for Laughs'' looks behind the laurels at the world's most commercially successful playwright (please see preview in this coming Friday's section).
