Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motor sport
with Michael Frostick and Maxwell Boyd

The twisting two-mile circuit 'round the houses' at Monte Carlo makes the Monaco Grand Prix the hardest event of its kind in the world. By Formula One standards, the lap record is slow at 79.8 m.p.h. But an error of judgment can send a driver through a shop window or drop him in the harbour.
Before the 1969 race last Sunday, world champion Graham Hill had won at Monaco four times - beating the record of Moss, Fangio, and Trintignant. Why have so few drivers been able to approach Hill's success at Monaco? Why is it the most spectacular event of the Grand Prix season?

Riots, miracles, apparitions-all were everyday events in the extraordinary life of Ignatius the Monk. Victorian England was divided: some applauded his attempt to inject the spirit of the fifth century into the chaos of their religious life; others, like the extreme Protestants, tried to destroy him, physically and mentally. Gladstone called him 'the greatest orator of our day,' but he ended his days in isolation, convinced that the Earth was flat and that the Americans were the lost tribes of Israel
The story of Joseph Leycester Lyne enthusiast and eccentric, self-styled Abbot of Elm Hill (Norwich) and Llanthony (Wales)

The weekly arts magazine

David Copperfield
Southwold on the Suffolk coast is now the headquarters of a film company making a new version of the Dickens classic for the centenary of the author's death next year. Frederick Brogger is the producer and Delbert Mann the director. Between bursts of sunshine and rain they and some of the stars - Susan Hampshire, Nicholas Pennell, Corin Redgrave, and Robin Phillips who plays the title role-talk about bringing David Copperfield into 1970.

'A Single-Handed British Avant-Garde'
So spoke one critic of Geoff Moore, twenty-three, ex-art student, stage manager, choreographer, and creator of Moving Being-one of the most promising experimental dance groups in Britain. They have been performing this week at the I.C.A. in London. Their work is startling, strange, full of humour and irony as well as pathos; a mixture of speech and movement, films, projections, music and silence. They are a young group with young ideas, but in the broadest sense, as the name implies, they are concerned with everyone's experience of being alive.
