The BBC Good Food Cooking and Eating Show

Gone are the days (alas) when Marguerite Patten toured the country with something she had prepared earlier. This grievous gap has now been filled by the BBC which has persuaded 34 chefs to cook live at this food 'n' drink fest.

10.45am-6pm, National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham (0121-780 4133)

THE FILM

Rope

John Dall and Farley Granger smoulder as a murdersome twosome in Hitchcock's version of the stage play inspired by the Twenties Leopold & Loeb murder case. Filmed on a single set in extraordinary 10-minute takes.

8pm, Hull Film Theatre (01482-883015)

THE RECITAL

Avoid the rush-hour by nipping into London's finest concert hall for this early evening recital by soprano Claron McFadden of songs by Britten, Bernstein's delicious "La Bonne Cuisine" and four of Copland's glorious Emily Dickinson settings.
