Lancashire v Durham
The stands of Twickenham are a long way from the north of England and consequently the County championship takes on a special importance for both players and spectators in the area. Yesterday's clash in the Northern Division was important to both sides in their endeavour to qualify for the semi-finals. Lancashire have been champions nine times and in their centenary year Durham will wish to add to their seven titles.

The story of three truckers and their journey from Portland in Oregon to Phoenix, Arizona. Lead driver Karl Weber says:
' The small independent-operator hasn't only got to fight the government bureaucratic machine and the big trucking companies, but also his own union - the Teamsters. And to keep in business, he's just got to keep on truckin'.'
