Introduced by Jonathan King The last time this show was aired, someone wrote saying that the city looked so nice he was leaving the UK to go and live there. Hopefully he made the right decision - it's a great city but it can get very cold. In winter the temperature falls to 40 degrees below and you can get frostbite just walking the streets - so JK had to keep his mouth shut for a change. He meets (inside, of course) Bon Jovi , and the hottest producers in the US, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis , and goes in search of Prince.
Plus new videos, movie clips, new news and the famous chicken commercial. Producer GORDON ELSBURY
Brass Tacks on Sport
Britain's chances of winning medals at the Seoul Olympics could be endangered because of this country's selection policy. That's the view of Sebastian Coe , who features in one of the reports in tonight's programme, in which David Taylor and Kathy Tayler explore the issues behind the sporting headlines.
The programme also examines some extravagant claims made about golf equipment and reports on how a disorder known as the 'yips' has turned triumph into tragedy for a number of sports figures.
