Live coverage from one of today's NatWest Bank Trophy second round matches.
Northants are current holders of the premier one-day trophy: it's a 60-over contest leading to a Lord's final on 4 September. There were no giant-killers in the first round, when 11 minor counties plus teams from
Scotland, Ireland and Wales took on the big boys, and by evening had been put in their place. No more so than
Oxfordshire, who were treated to a vintage Viv Richards innings of 162 not out: he is determined, in his final season, to steer Glamorgan to the final. Of the first-class counties Middlesex and Lancashire are already out, beaten by Kent and Northants respectively.
Commentary by Richie Benaud , Ray Illingworth and Jack Bannister. Introduced by Tony Lewis.
TV presentation Mike Adley and Alan Griffiths
Man and Mountain. The story of Joss Naylor , a Cumberland sheep farmer, who was nearly crippled when young, and had three discs removed from his spine when he was 21. To get himself in shape he used to run up to 50 miles a day and ended up as a champion mountain runner. His farm borders
Westwater, a picturesque neighbourhood which boasts "the deepest lake in England, the highest mountain, the smallest church".
Further puppet adventures with Scarecrow, Dandelion,
Burdock, Trundle the Tractor, Portly the pig and their friends. Today, they find out who eats what and someone who eats too much. With the voices of Bob Peck and Anna Carteret.

This bird needs no introduction - a welcome guest in any garden, no bird table or nest box is complete without one. The blue tit really is the bird next door, but this programme shows what blue tits get up to when no one is looking.
It tells how one particular pair live out their year - how the male feeds and cares for his mate, how their first tiny nestling is bom, how the young face the hazards of cat and sparrowhawk. It's a story full of event and excitement, yet the hero and heroine weigh scarcely more than a t coin.

(including his mistress, Lida Baarova ), this programme reveals the film techniques of Hitler's minister for popular enlightenment and propaganda in Nazi Germany. A keen student of Hollywood cinema - one of his favourite films was
Gone with the Wind- Goebbels believed that entertainment provided the best form of propaganda. He ordered the production of the film Baron
Munchausen in 1943 and also made a big- budget film about the sinking of the Titanic in which the aristocratic English officers were blamed.

Presented by Jeremy Paxman.
The multi-cultural debate programme returns for a second six-week series. Each week a selection of people from a range of ethnic backgrounds discuss a controversial topical issue.
Proposed subjects for debate include the extent to which sport could both reinforce racial stereotypes and break down barriers, and whether religion could be said to do more harm than good.
The studio audience of people is chosen to reflect the nation as a whole in terms of culture, class, age, sex, religion and ethnic origin. Presented by Trevor Phillips.
Producer Nelson Mews
Written by Wole Soyinka.
A dark and compelling, but also richly ironic, play about a civil war and its aftermath.
