Motor Racing from Italy
The San Marino Grand Prix
To say that Italy expects, is putting it mildly. The red favours of the Ferrari supporters re-define the countryside of Imola, where success for the Prancing Horse does not mean coming second. Ferrari and Brabham have won here twice in recent times. Suffice to say a home win in the tie-break would be best received. MURRAY WALKER and JAMES HUNT watch as avidly, but contribute less vociferously.

World Snooker

World Professional Snooker Championship from the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield
The Final
With apologies, this really is the big one, or at least the continuation of it. Loitering behind the best table in the world, the constant reminder of what all this has been about - the World Champion's Cup.
4.30
Gymnastics from Bucharest
Every now and again sport produces a personality that conditions the public's thinking and awareness. In this discipline there have been several in recent years, but the enigma and brilliance of the sullen-faced NADIA comaneci has compelled millions to follow and some to doubt the expressionless gaze. In the Olympic year it is fitting that the world's finest exponents have come together to pay tribute to her athletic example and witness her receipt of the Silver Order for achievement by the President of the International Olympic Committee.
Some time during the afternoon you will be able to see the best football from yesterday's Rugby League Cup Final. So can we advise you all to keep watching?

My Dinner with Louis
Tonight Arena profiles the French film director Louis Malle. Malle is a director who has never let himself be tied down to one style of film making. The Lovers, with Jeanne Moreau , shocked the conservative public in 1958 and his Indian documentaries were candid enough to concern the Indian government. Even in the permissive 70s, Malle found ways to provoke, depicting child prostitution in Pretty Baby with Brooke Shields , and corruption in Lacombe Lucien , about a collaborator in wartime France.
Wallace Shawn, the American playwright and actor, first worked with Louis Malle in Atlantic City, USA. They became friends and Malle directed a film that Shawn had written called My Dinner with Andre.
Arena took LOUIS MALLE and WALLACE SHAWN back to Atlantic City.

The Embassy
World Professional Snooker Championship from the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield
Sixteenth day
The Final (frames 8-16)
The most important snooker match of the year is well under way as the finalists play nine more frames of the 35. So far these two men will have played a fortnight of the toughest and most mentally and physically demanding snooker, and the winner may well be the man who can call on the biggest reserve of energy and concentration. DAVID VINE has the latest news of this afternoon's first session as well as highlights of this evening's frames. Commentators TED LOWE
