Glass or pvc? Corrugated or plain? Barn or Cloche? Peter Seabrook and Arthur Billitt compare the pros and cons of some of the bewildering number of cloches now on the market, and put them to good use over early sowings of salad crops and other vegetables. In the greenhouse Peter takes cuttings of chrysanthemums and makes further sowings of summer bedding plants.

Suddenly there is an explosion in solar research. It began three years ago and is accelerating fast. Huge mirrors are collecting the sun in Tokyo and Denver. Giant windmills are beginning to turn in Ohio. Engineers are already testing the tools astronauts will use in space when they build a 50-square-mile satellite that will radiate solar power down to Earth. Most surprisingly, huge machines designed to sit in the tropical seas and extract power from the hot water are about to be built. Much of the work is in America and Japan but Britain is closely involved - we have, it seems, already developed the necessary technology.
But can any of these techniques be ready for when oil becomes scarce in 15 or 20 years? Will any of them be cheap enough to displace nuclear power or coal from our energy future? Some of the answers are dazzling!

in conversation with lain Johnstone
Since she sprang to prominence 13 years ago in the Broadway musical Funny Girl, Miss Streisand's career has been a combination of success and controversy.
Golden Discs, Golden Globes, an Oscar for Best Acitress, vast audiences and often unprecedented hysteria have accompanied her continuing rise. But also a reputa'tion for being fractious, aloof, autocratic, and less than lovable.
In her latest film, A Star is Born, she had a much-'publicised row with her director who in turn wrote a venomous article about her and her boyfriend Jon Peters , whom she made executive producer.
In this interview, she talks about these and other matters.
