Lions of the African Night Narrated by Martin Jarvis The lion, the king of beasts, is a nocturnal prowler. He lazes away the day, and most of his activity is hidden behind a cloak of darkness. But now the award-winning wildlife camera-team of David and Carol Hughes reveals the night-shift in the Kruger National Park. Their film, which took over three years to make, follows the fortunes of a large pride of 30 lionesses and cubs in their nightly quest for food. The lions' encounters with wart hog, porcupine, wildebeest and zebra in the velvet blackness of the Bushveld are set against a cast of lesser creatures - an orgy of foam-nesting frogs, a frog-eating spider, a cricket which uses leaves as 'loud speakers' and a ferocious ant-lion.

The Dunhill Cup
Highlights of the final day with HARRY CARPENTER
Lou, an ageing crook with delusions about his past grandeur,
'works' with increasing difficulty in Atlantic
City, USA. By chance he encounters Dave, a hoodlum who has a small fortune in stolen cocaine, and together they decide to push the drug. Unfortunately the original owners have other plans.
Interwoven with this story is the bitter-sweet love affair between Lou and the beautiful Sally, and a haunting portrait of a faded city. Louis Malle 's film has established itself as a classic of the 1980s, and Burt Lancaster gives one of the greatest performances of his distinguished career.
