Voyager to Uranus
The Voyager 2 probe bypassed the planet Uranus on 24 January. Though it was discovered in 1781, not much has been found out about
Uranus, and in many ways it is a mysterious world, with a strange axial tilt and a system of dark rings.
Patrick Moore is at the space headquarters in Pasadena for the encounter, and in this special Sky at Night programme he is joined by the leading NASA experts to give the latest news and pictures of what Voyager 2 has to tell us about this mysterious green world.

The magazine of the arts and media presented by Russell Davies including
Photography: an interview with Alfred Eisenstaedt who has been called both the founding father and the master of modern photojournalism. This week the first major British retrospective exhibition of his work opened at the National Theatre.
Theatre: Doug Lucie is one of Britain's leading young playwrights whose work has been performed in fringe theatres and on television.
Tonight is his commercial theatre debut, with the opening of Progress at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith. Print: Joseph Lelyveld , for many years an American newspaper man in South Africa, talks about his experiences there. His book Move Your Shadow, published this week, is an inside account of how apartheid is maintained.
Media: in Amusing Ourselves to Death Neil Postman argues that television, as the world's primary means of communication, is a trivialising, distracting medium that fits Huxley's vision of a Brave New World where control is maintained by inflicting pleasure.
Saturday Review - a mere television programme - takes up the arguments of Postman's book.

The Embassy World Indoor Bowls Championship
DOUGIE DONNELLY introduces highlights from the second semi-final played tonight at the Coatbridge Indoor Club. With the finalists now known, the adrenalin has started to flow for tomorrow's live match worth Ell,000 to the 1986 champion.
(Final tomorrow live at 2.30pm)
Bona idolises Gardo, a handsome young actor, and is overwhelmed when he condescends to notice her. Defying her respectable family, she moves into Gardo's home. Life with a movie star, however, is hardly the romance that Bona imagines.
Lino Brocka made his name at home as a prolific director of box office successes but has won international recognition for his acutely observed stories from contemporary Philippine life. Bona is a sharply realistic portrait of a young woman in love and, incidentally, pokes fun at the Philippine film industry.
Written by CENEN RAMONES Directed by UNO BROCKA
(A Philippine film with English subtitles. First showing on British television)
