Jumping Course Hickstead
Today marks the start of an unprecedented ten days of show jumping in Britain. At this Hickstead meeting and at next week's Royal International Show in London the representatives of some seven countries, including the formidable equestrian opposition of the United States, Germany and Italy, will be engaged in constant, spectacular competition. The International Arena at Hickstead, which provides the intriguing combination of a beautiful setting with jumping courses that demand the ultimate of horse and rider, is today's venue for the first two major events of this show jumping festival.

2: In the Midst of an Empty Sea
As an airline pilot, Henri Bour dens had flown to every corner of the globe. But his real ambition was to sail around the world. Four years ago it looked as though he and his wife Jose would realise this dream - until their yacht was wrecked on a desert island in the Arafura Sea. They had a Bible and Shakespeare - and even gramophone records. What they didn' have was food, or any hope of rescue. How do 20th-century castaways cope with total isolation and the prospect of almost certain death?
