One of the most passionate and engaging advocates of the 20th-century environment, its design and architecture, died in March this year at the age of 66. As a tribute to
Reyner Banham , architect Norman Foster introduces this 1972 film from the One Pair of Eyes series, in which
Banham argued the case for the much-maligned Los Angeles. He saw it as a great and significant city, he truly fell in love with it.

1988 Formula One
World Championship
San Marino Grand Prix
It's a month since the opening Grand Prix in Brazil which ALAIN PROST won with team-mate AYRTON SENNA running a strong race until disqualified. The non-turbo cars didn't show up too well but expect them to do better here where fuel consumption has always ' been a real problem. If that's the case NIGEL MANSELL could open his account for 1988.
