In the last programme in the series, Lenny Henry is Clive James 's studio guest. The crucial comedian's wild sense of humour remains in perfect working order in spite of receiving star treatment in Hollywood when he was filming True Identity, and going straight in the recent BBCtv production Alive and Kicking. James takes a wry look at the world's small screens and gives his own unique interpretations of the week's international news, while commentators and celebrity guests beam in by satellite from around the world.

The final of the UK
Championship from the Guild Hall , reston.P David Vine presents frames 8 to 14, as the long struggle continues for one of snooker's most illustrious titles. At this stage in last year's final, Stephen Hendry had got off to a flying start taking six of the first seven frames.
However, it was not a true indicator of the drama to come: the Scot only clinching the title 16-15 in the deciding frame.
For the finalists, tonight's is the sixth match in two weeks of competition. Concentration, willpower and stamina are now as important as talent as they strive towards the 16 frames required for victory.
Comedy starring Leslie Phillips
Sir William Mainwaring Brown , MP, is a staunch defender of public decency and scourge of the permissive society. He also has two mistresses and an uncanny knack of losing his trousers at inopportune moments. This bedroom romp is based on the successful
London West End farce.
