THE BRITISH soprano Victoria Sladen, who sang with Sadler's Wells Opera (now English National Opera) and Covent Garden Opera (now the Royal Opera) in the 1940s and 1950s, excelled in roles such as Tosca, in which her outstanding good looks as well as her fine voice were displayed to best advantage.

Obituary: Ernest Gold

THE COMPOSER Ernest Gold's soaring score for Exodus, Otto Preminger's epic film about the formation of the state of Israel, won him the 1960 Academy Award as well as two Grammys. The stately main theme also became a hit for such pop stars as Pat Boone, reaching second place on the popular music charts - to the surprise of the composer, who considered the theme "too serious and too long-hair for popular appeal".

Sports Letters: Ugly truth

Sir: A letter (27 January) referred to sport being a source of pleasure... not warfare by other means. Sadly the word sport is quite discredited. We hear much of drug-enhanced performance and the endemic power of money, but baser instincts reveal themselves in excessive triumphalism.
