Exclusive coverage from last night's Harry Levene/Mickey Duff promotion at the Wembley Arena, sponsored by DAF Trucks.
Commentator HARRY CARPENTER
After his convincing first title defence in June, when he defeated Vito Antuofermo comfortably in eight rounds, the 29-year-old Briton from Crawley - the only unadisputed world champion in boxing - faces the top contender, a fellow southpaw from Boston. The American claims he should have become champion himself when given a hotly-contested draw in his previous title challenge against Antuofermo last November.

Soka Gakkai v The Rest
The Soka Gakkai is Japanese and Buddhist. The Buddhism it preaches is a road to success: money, promotion, health and happiness. Yet its doctrines come from the strange and fierce teachings of Nichiren, a nationalist zealot of the 13th century. Since the war 10,000,000 Japanese have joined the sect. Each member is taught to chant the sacred syllables Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, and receives an object of worship, a Gohonzon, which is installed in his home.
Many of Soka Gakkai's activities are not religious at all. There are Soka Gakkai schools and a university. Soka Gakkai sponsors music, art and sporting activities. It has its own political party, the ' Clean Government Party'; and its international president, DAISAKU IKEDA , travels the world in the cause of peace.
The Soka Gakkai is successful, but the organisation is not loved. This film tries to discover why. Narrated by PETER FRANCE

The last of three programmes investigating the so-called microelectronics revolution.
And What of the Future?
How will the silicon chip affect the quality of our lives and our attitudes to work? Starting in America, Bernard Falk visits places already using the new technology to find out what could be in store for white collar, blue collar and professional workers in the next decade. What kind of jobs change or disappear? Are there areas where employment will increase? What will be the effects on the professions? How must our attitudes change if we are to enjoy the benefits of this new revolution and not suffer its worst effects?
