It's London Fashion Week and Selina Scott , Jeff Banks and Caryn Franklin join the rest of the world's fashion journalists, photographers and buyers as the circus rolls into town. In contrast to the hype and hysteria at
Olympia, there's a report from Harrogate Fashion Fair. 'The Clothes Show ' magazine, first issue out this week
Marriage on the Rocks Stirred into action by Kimberly's audacious move, JR is shaken by the consequences, while Ray is compelled to sound a sober note about being young and in love. Cliff is offered the strangest partnership and April bemoans the partnership that can never be. From little acorns ... the willowy Laurel Ellis leaves Clayton wanting more.

The Snooker Machine
At first it seemed just an amusing idea - why not teach a robot to play snooker? A little eccentric perhaps, but good for a laugh. Soon it became a project of startling technical complexity.
Koorosh Khodabandehloo tells the story of how, with the help of Professor Richard Gregory , world champion Steve Davis and a team of computer experts, he painstakingly gave a mechanical arm sufficient artificial intelligence to challenge snooker commentator Ted Lowe to a match he will not easily forget.
