Producer PAUL KRIWACZEK
The plough is the basic farming implement, and Dr Alan Reece of Newcastle University has spent half a lifetime studying how it works. But now he also runs a successful business designing ploughs to work 600-feet down at the bottom of the North Sea, burying oil pipelines and telephone cables.
The principles are the same, but the machines tend to be bigger-weighing up to 50 tonnes and standing 15 feet high.
Philip Wrixon talks to ALAN REECE about this unusual application of agricultural engineering and his assault on the academic ivory tower by combining teaching with running a business.

Preston TERRY GRIFFITHS , the holder, should be on view today. So far, however, the snooker season has been full of surprises and shocks and MIKE HALLETT - who beat Steve Davis in the Professional Players' Tournament - and JOE JOHNSON - who reached the final of the same event - are both capable of upsetting the form book again. JOHN VIRGO , the UK winner in 1979, should also be contesting this, if he has overcome DAVID TAYLOR.
