' When we take cricket too seriously we would do well to remember that it's only a game. But we should also remember that it's probably the best loved game of all.' (JOHN ARLOTT ) Well loved as cricket is, it is not immune from change. On the surface all is well, but a number of developments - not least the spread of sponsorship, increasing commercialisation and the advent of the much-publicised touring ' circus ' - mean that cricket's future might be beset with problems ...

A journey in three parts by Thomas Ellice
Maggie, Charity and Nanette try to come to terms with the life of the boaters on the Grand Union Canal. War has brought them together and as they try to adapt themselves to this hardworking alien world, they find that relationships of many kinds are less simple than they thought.

'History will absolve me' wrote Fidel Castro (above, in 1955) in a Cuban jail after his first abortive attempt to overthrow the government. The document was smuggled out, much of it in tiny writing and rolled up inside cigars, and established Castro as leader of the Cuban liberation movement.
Now, in a unique filmed interview, Fidel Castro justifies his claim, recalling, with the aid of filmed reconstructions and archive material, events of the last 20 years which led to the establishment of Cuba's revolutionary government. The Cuban leader also explains his country's special affinity with Angola and comments on other aspects of Cuba's foreign relations.
