BERT FOORD : the weekend weather
BBC outside broadcast cameras beside St Paul 's Cathedral cover the traditional pageantry and modern carnival as the new Lord Mayor rides in procession through the City of London from the Mansion House to the Royal Courts of Justice.
This year it's a story-tale pageant from the Town Crier at the head to the 1757 Golden State Coach at the tail; and the BBCtv Roving Eye joins in to give a Lord Mayor's-eye-view of the crowd-lined streets on the City's annual day out.

Rusty the fox cub has more than enough excitement in his extraordinary escape down river from a pack of baying hounds without having to endure the bustling streets of San Francisco as well. Strange as it may seem, he meets more forms of animal life there than he is ever likely to find in the wilds of Sacramento.
