The John Player League
Yorkshire v Nottinghamshire
Last season Yorkshire finished runners-up to Kent in the League and, while playing well enough to be in the upper regions of the table this season, they seem too far behind to catch the leaders and their struggle will be for the third place prize money. Notts on the other hand have had a singularly unsuccessful season, but any side that has the great GARY SOBERS playing for them is capable of many a surprise.

King Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago
Narrated by Andrew SALKEY
In the streets 100,000 people jumping up to the infectious rhythms of steelbands, in the costumes of Romans, clouds, Donald Ducks , stormtroopers, Zulus, devils, anything a fertile imagination can devise and skilled hands create - that's Carnival in Trinidad.
But beneath the fantastic spectacle there lies a history of cultural struggle. The influences of Europe, of India, and above all Africa are reflected in customs and ceremonies still alive in Trinidad today.
The insistent, joyful music, stunning costumes and immense crowds make it a perfect TV spectacle; Horace Ovi 's film shows it to be that, and much more ... (Sunday TIMES) Director HORACE ove Producer COLIN Luke
