The John Player League featuring today
Kent v Northamptonshire
Kent's hopes of taking the League title for the third year in succession took a severe blow when they lost to Yorkshire two weeks ago. They now must not only rely on their own abilities to win their remaining matches but also on the opponents of leaders Leicestershire to administer a defeat.
Northamptonshire are currently fourth in the table and Kent can afford no lapse in concentration this afternoon.

The Other Iceland
Cod wars and volcanic eruptions have put Iceland on the front page: but there's another Iceland behind those headlines, the story of a people with a toe-hold on an inhospitable rock where only 1 per cent. is farmable. Living against these odds they've been forced to exploit: eider ducks, seabirds, whales and fish. But in general, over a thousand years, they've established a balance of which they're fiercely proud.

The world-famous singer talks to Bernard Levin about the career which started in a church choir in St Louis and led her to the major opera houses and concert halls of the world. It has been said: ' Bumbry can keep audiences thrilled just standing still.'
She has recently changed from mezzo to soprano and in the programme will be heard in some of her new operatic roles.
