A Television Literary Quiz
A large, irregular area of the turned-back part of the blanket was missing; an area about the size of the palm of his hand in the main part of the top blanket was missing. Through the three holes which, appropriately enough, had black borders, he could see a dark brown mark on the second blanket. He ran a finger round a bit of the hole in the sheet, and when he looked at his finger it bore a dark-grey stain. That meant ash; ash meant burning; burning must mean cigarettes. Had this cigarette burnt itself out on the blanket? If not, where was it now? Nowhere on the bed; nor in it. Who wrote it? Do you like it? Alan Brien asks
Elizabeth Bowen , A. S. Byatt Cyril Connolly , Peter Porter for their opinions and reactions to this and other quotations. Reader PETER EYRE

Review went to the Belgrade
Theatre, Coventry, to find out from a cross-section of the company what makes them do it. Directed by TERENCE DIXON
Nucleus is unique amongst modern jazz bands. A quintet made up of the cream of British modern jazz talent. It is backed by a powerful rock rhythm section including John Marshall , voted top instrumentalist of last year by Melody Maker. Their music is powerful and inventive, and leader Ian Carr 's new work ' Solar Plexus ' has interested both jazz and classical enthusiasts.
Review invites Carr and Nucleus into the studio to give a sample of their special blend of formal jazz and progressive pop.
