Entrapment (12)

Leading Article: Acting our age

AFTER FOUR years, over 1,000 performances, 10 different casts and the report that even Tom Cruise is applying to join the next change of actors, the play Art at London's Wyndhams Theatre could truly be said to be the Mousetrap of our times.

Digital, Cable and Satellite Television: Pick of the Day

AFTER SOME heavy-duty hype at the recent Cannes film festival - only the new Austin Powers film, The Spy Who Shagged Me, was hawked around the market more - Entrapment finally opens across the country tomorrow. Tonight, in Barry Norman's Film Night (10pm Sky Premier), Bazza gets to do what's known in the trade as a "Sean Connery", that is, drool in an old-enough-to-be-your-father fashion over one of its stars, Catherine Zeta-Jones (right). He also casts a wry, middle-aged eye over two new British films, a comedy called Virtual Sexuality, directed by Nick Hurran, and a thriller entitled All the Little Animals, which stars John Hurt and Christian Bale.

Brian Viner's Icons of the 20th Century No 7: James Bond

Following their cold-blooded execution of News at Ten, ITV chiefs have now unveiled their secret plan to conquer the schedules - running all the James Bond films in chronological order. With Trevor McDonald, otherwise known as agent 22.00, no longer posing a problem, 007 must now deal with the twin agents 21.00, aka Peter Sissons and Michael Buerk. If his mission is successful, the BBC may be forced to kill off the 9pm News.

CAPTAIN MOONLIGHT: Tourism flagging? Play hunt the car-park

GREETINGS! Here we are again, happy as can be, all devolved and dusted! But, wait: is this a shadow falling across the rump that is England? Yes, sadly, it seems, tourism is in trouble. Visits down, spending down, attractions not attracting, all to do with the strong pound and the bad weather. But never fear: The Captain Can Help. Here follow my favourite five ideas for new attractions that will also underline our English identity at this vital time: 1) Bluelakeside. This will be an entirely new concept in theme parks: yes, the theme is shops, 550 of them, all together, and set in beautifully landscaped grounds with those wood chippings on all the flower beds. 2) Car Park. Use all your skill and guile to find one of the few spaces remaining and evade payment in our specially constructed 2,399 space Car Park, set in beautifully landscaped grounds with those wood chippings on all the flowerbeds. 3) Bloomsbury. Tweeds compulsory, a bit of a libido an advantage. Try our To The Lighthouse dark ride - if you dare! 4) Bomber Command. Explore one of our gifts to the world at this former American air base set in beautifully landscaped grounds, etc. Children will particularly enjoy the "hands-on experience" feature where they get the chance to crush their own tinpot dictator into submission with balsa wood stealth bombers. 5) Commons. Entry limited, normally, to every five years, and requires incredible nerve. Curiously beguiling mixture of waxworks, community care, and olde tyme music hall. (Sister attraction, Lords, currently being revamped for new season.) Next!

Voting for a new Britain: Campaigns Briefing 3 Days to Go

MARGARET COOK, the former wife of Foreign Secretary Robin Cook, intends to cast a vote for the SNP in protest at her ex-husband's policy on Kosovo. Mrs Cook said she "abhorred" the Nato bombing and was increasingly sympathetic to SNP leader Alex Salmond's condemnation of it. However, Mrs Cook does not support Scottish independence and will cast her constituency vote for the Liberal Democrats.

Racing: McManus' last hopes in Istabraq

ISTABRAQ, IN today's Shell Champion Hurdle can surely ease the pain for J P McManus who has endured a miserable Punchestown Festival week. On Wednesday his top novice hurdler Joe Mac collapsed and died, while yesterday his expensive French import Le Coudray had to be pulled up in the Champion Stayers' Hurdle behind David Nicholson's Anzum.
