Show Jumping from Hickstead: Dubai Olympic Cup
On paper, this is one round and a jump-off away from Seoul in September, ie the final British team trial.
BRIAN BARRON describes what's in store for them from Korea with RAYMOND BROOKS-WARD and STEPHEN HADLEY in Sussex.

Motor Racing from Hockenheim: German Grand Prix
Fifty years ago to the day British driver Richard Semen won this race. Chances might seem remote for an anniversary success in view of the invincibility of McLaren's French and Brazilian pilots. Commentators MURRAY WALKER ; JAMES HUNT

Motorcycling from Mallory Park: British Road Racing Championship
At its best a graceful, seat-of the-leathers affair, frequently exciting, always dangerous. Commentator BARRY NUTLEY

Cricket from Cardiff: Refuge Assurance League: Glamorgan v Yorkshire
Only ten wins between them last season. It was five each, so it may be close.
Commentators PETER WALKER and RALPH DELLOR

Rock Racing from South Yorkshire
One of the very few sports you can do going upwards against the clock, with minimal assistance.

Narrated by Glenn Close
A chance meeting aboard the QE2 between Glenn 'Fatal Attraction' Close and director Jon Blair resulted in their collaboration on this documentary, telling the story of a year in the life of the tiny cow-town of Big Piney, Wyoming. When
Close's parents settled there 12 years ago, she would occasionally accompany her father, who became the town's doctor, on his rounds. She thus encountered a host of people whose recollections she became determined to record on film before they and their way of life died out completely.

The 1988 Formula One Championship
German Grand Prix
A win for McLaren here would give them the best winning sequence for 35 years, and after
AYRTON SENNA 'S dominant
Silverstone performance two weeks ago who would bet against that happening?
British fans will be hoping that NIGEL MANSELL 'S stirring performance can be repeated, and watch out for the March and the Benetton teams on a circuit which should suit the non-turbo cars.
