New wire instalation help

I just bought some land and am going to be building a house. My land is in the country. My power pole and meter are about 120 feet from where i am going to be building my house. There is currently a 200 amp service on the property on the pole. What size aluminum entry cable and what size copper cable do i need to use to run 120 feet from power pole to my house. The run will be underground. Any diagrams on how to hook it up on the power pole below the meter and any diagrams on how to hook service cable up in the 200 amp breaker box in the house would be great. Thanks for all your help and information

Connecting the wire to the to the pole panel will depend on what is available. Please post a picture of your outdoor panel with the covers off. (not the meter)

You may want to consider checking out the book "Wiring Simplified" for diagrams and other info.
