Brisk, ill-tempered, brilliant barrister
Sir Wilfrid Robarts is persuaded to take on the case of one Leonard Vole , accused of murdering a wealthy widow. Circumstantial evidence against him is strong, his only defence being an alibi hinging on his wife's testimony. The trial, however, takes a dramatic turn when Vole's wife appears not as a defence witness, but as a witness for the prosecution....

The Story of Saturn
When the planet Saturn was first examined telescopically in 1610, it was believed by Galileo to be a triple world. Only later was it found that Saturn has rings.
Patrick Moore looks back at some of the strange old ideas, and shows what can be seen this month with a small telescope when Saturn is best placed - with its rings wide open. Producer PIETER MORPURGO

Embassy World Professional Snooker Championship Second Semi-final
(Frames 23-31) Conclusion One finalist is known. The other will be revealed this evening. STEVE DAVIS was supposed to be the favourite - but not according to CLIFF THORBURN.
DAVID VINE introduces the frames that mean the most at an expectant Crucible Theatre, Sheffield.
Tonight Arena shows again its unique television interview with the writer
Jean Genet who died in Paris last month. Genet's first novel, Our Lady of the Flowers, written in prison, moved Jean-Paul Sartre to declare him a saint and martyr. At 75, Genet remained a self-declared outcast, unrepentant about his past as a thief and prostitute, still questioning society's expectations. In an impassioned outburst, he denounced even the interview itself as 'a piece of bad theatre' and turned the tables on his interrogators. Directed by NIGEL WILLIAMS CHARLES CHABOT (R)
