â– Jess Burgess:
David Gower 's news, interviews and features magazine programme returns to reflect upon the serious and light-hearted issues from the cricket world.
This season's regular new items include typically forthright views from Geoffrey Boycott on the issues of the month, and one player's video diary that provides a unique record of the events behind closed doors in a county cricket club. The first man behind the camera is Dermot Reeve , captain of county champions Warwickshire.
The programme also talks to
Ray Illingworth , Mike Atherton and David Lloyd about the possible paths to success ahead forthe beleaguered English cricket team after a disappointing winter on tour; news of the intriguing ways some cricketers fill the long close season, a review of the dramatic climax to the recent one-day World Cup, and the important changes affecting the new domestic season.

This Life 9.45pm BBC2
Legal whizzkid Warren has been leading a double life - persuading his family back home in Wales that he just hasn't met the right girl yet, while actually living as a gay man in London. The game's up tonight when his pushy cousin Kira accidentally catches him in flagrante with another man, prompting Warren to confess all. Meanwhile Egg has made the big break - he's left the law, and is trying to get a job as a sports journalist. So far, however, his great new plan hasn't amounted to much: he spends all day sitting in front of the television watching football videos.
Man in parle:
With Jeremy Paxman.
The day's highlights include the conclusion of the match involving
Steve Davis and Willie Thorne and a progress report on Crucible first-timer Anthony Hamilton 's match against
