Golf: Torrance falters

SAM TORRANCE, the Graham Gooch of golf, is still using the long handle to good effect and is on course here to kick- start his Ryder Cup career. Not everyone, at such an early stage, wants to talk about the biennial showstopper between Europe and the United States, but Torrance is not among them. He has played - not all that successfully it has to be said - in the last seven Cup matches and is determined to make it eight.

TELEVISION / Oranges have never been the only fruit

IN SOME distant century the journals of Camille Paglia will fall into the hands of a brilliant decoder. Hitherto known as a fin- de-millennium in-yer-face lesbian syntax- mangler, with a little meticulous unscrambling Paglia will be revealed unclothed: 'Stayed in again and watched a new programme last night. It was about a 19th-century woman from Halifax called Anne Lister, who wrote a secret diary about her love for women. Disgusting] Surely such practices are just make-believe? Must get Mr P to write a letter of complaint to the people who put out this offensive tripe.'

Motoring: Me & my motor: The naughty boy racer at 68: Judge Pickles is car-crazy - and a Chevrolet Corvette is his latest love. In the first of a new series, Matthew Gwyther goes for a ride

JUDGE JAMES PICKLES is being a naughty boy again, this time in his car. We are strapped into the judge's 5.7-litre Chevrolet Corvette and storming down a dual carriageway outside his home town of Halifax at 92mph. 'Just look at that,' says His Honour, pointing at the dashboard. 'Ninety-two and only 2,300 rpm. It's not turning over fast at all.' We are passed by a Porsche 911 Turbo and Pickles's nostrils flare, although he declines to take up the gauntlet and put his foot down in pursuit. 'Don't like Porsches,' he snorts. 'Got the engine at the wrong end.'

Obituary: Ferruccio Lamborghini

Ferruccio Lamborghini, car maker, born near Ferrara 28 April 1916, died Perugia 20 February 1993.

Lamborghini dies

Perugia (AP) - Ferruccio Lamborghini, founder of the luxury car company bearing his name, has died aged 76 after suffering a heart attack earlier this month. He began his career making tractors out of German tanks left behind at the end of the Second World War. By the late 1960s Lamborghini had an industrial empire producing heaters, tractors, car parts and 'super cars'.

THEATRE / Not like that, like this: If you want to be 'authentick', then, whatever happens, you must not rehearse before walking on stage. Georgina Brown meets the players doing it Shakespeare's way

A month ago, six actors met and cast Twelfe Night (sic), the first-folio version of Shakespeare's comedy. Tomorrow night, that company, many of them strangers to one another, will dress up in heavy Elizabethan costumes and perform together for the first time. Each actor has had four weeks to learn a 'cue script' - that is, a three-word cue plus their own part in isolation from the rest of the play, which they have promised not to read. But, with the exception of the fights and the dance, they have never rehearsed the play before. The prompter has rarely felt so wanted. It's hard to know who is crazier: the audience who will pay pounds 5, or the performers who confess to a state of mild terror. But What You Will Theatre Company claims that there is method in their madness. This, they insist, is 'authentic' Shakespeare.
