Introduced by Steve Rider
In figure-skating, today's event was the men's short programme. Canada's BRIAN ORSER must do well here if he's to go one better than Sarajevo when he won the silver medal. Speed skater GAETAN BOUCHER of Canada already knows what it's like to win Olympic gold. At the Olympic Oval he was defending one of his two titles from 1984, the men's 1,000m, with the biggest threat likely to come from the USA's NICK THOMETZ. Commentators

Energetic and still much in demand Sir John Mills is celebrating his 80th birthday and nearly 60 years on stage and in films. This quintessentially English actor looks back on his distinguished career and reminisces with Christopher Frayling about some of his most popular films, including In Which We Serve, Great Expectations, Scott of the Antarctic, Hobson's Choice, Tunes of Glory and Ryan's Daughter, for which he won an Oscar.
Film editor GRAHAM DEAN Producer MARGARET SHARP • CEEFAX SUBTITLES
