The book, by black ex-US coastguard ALEX HALEY , on which it was based, promises to join the all-time best-sellers.

Does Anything Ever Happen on the Moon?
The moon has long been regarded as a dead world; but is this completely true? Astronomers have described faint coloured patches and local ' fogs', which are sometimes thought to be gases seeping through from below the ground.
Patrick Moore discusses these ' transient phenomena', and also describes the eclipse of the moon which will take place on 16 September.
