hen the normally loyal Conservative press turns on its own government, something pretty serious is up. The Prime Minister was incensed to read in the Daily Telegraph, of all papers, that the country was 'waiting to feel the smack of firm government'. That was in January 1956 and it produced a considerable sensation, and foreshadowed a change of tenant at 10 Downing Street before 12 months were out.

A POLYESTER jockstrap has been designed by researchers from Egypt as a new method of contraception for men. Writing in Contraception, they report that the garment can temporarily abolish sperm production. The jockstrap is tailored to fit, worn day and night and changed only when soiled. The researchers found that the sperm counts of 14 volunteers dropped to infertile levels after an average 140 days' wear. None of their partners conceived during the 12-month study. The men's sperm counts climbed back to normal an average of 157 days after discarding the sling.
FILM / Director's Cut: Riddle of the sands: Lawrence Kasdan describes the identity crisis that provides the pivotal scene of Lawrence of Arabia
Friday 10 July 1992
There is a moment in Lawrence of Arabia that I love. Lawrence has crossed the Sinai with two boys and has lost one. They reach the Suez Canal - he's going back to Cairo after taking Aqaba. He's covered with dust and has become the Arab he has always wanted to be, at great cost to himself. And a British officer on the other side of the Suez spots him and yells across: 'Who are you? Who are you?' That's the central question of the movie, perfectly stated in dramatic terms: the question that everybody has to answer. It's the question that interests me too: who we are, what kind of people we're going to be, how we define ourselves. It's central to Grand Canyon, but also to my first film - Body Heat is the story of a man who has to decide how to be: whether to live by his ideals or by his desires. That's the issue in all my movies.
