PARTIES of various stripes in South Africa may well be feeling apprehensive when the appeal by Winnie Mandela - who is staring at six years in jail - opens on Wednesday. Mrs Mandela, convicted in 1991 on charges of kidnapping and being an accessory in the death of young Stompie Seipei Moeketsi, has been free on bail since her conviction. She will probably not turn up in person at the Bloemfontein courtroom.

The pop star Whitney Houston has sung her way into the record books with her latest hit single, 'I Will Always Love You'. Yesterday it remained at the top of the UK charts for a ninth consecutive weeks, to beat the record of eight weeks by a female artist, notched up in 1954 by Doris Day with 'Secret Love'. The song, taken from Houston's film debut The Bodyguard, which also stars Kevin Costner, is top of the pops in several other countries.

WHY trust haircuts? They seem such frivolous things, mere chop and change, yet they remain one of the most accurate guides to cinema. Photographs of Harpo Marx at home show a mild, ordinary man; add the wig, however, and all hell breaks loose - a burst of blond bubbles, suggesting that his brain was made of bath foam. It was. Brando grew his hair long for Last Tango in Paris, which suited the louche old goat he was playing; then razed it off for Apocalypse Now, which was perfect for his bloated Buddha. But even he got it wrong with the white locks of Superman: most people thought he had just spent five minutes under a Mr Whippy dispenser. One glimpse, and you knew the film was a no-no.

TONIGHT, Radio 1 will unveil the Christmas number one. This year there is little suspense - Whitney Houston's 'I Will Always Love You' has been number one since 29 November and is outselling the current number two, 'Heal The World' by Michael Jackson, by two to one.

I AGREE with Annie Lennox when she wrote (Letters, 6 December) that Sinead O'Connor is uniquely talented, and I was sad to read that she felt my tongue-in- cheek gesture during the Brits was puerile and embarrassing. Playing Whitney Houston's version of 'The Star Spangled Banner' as a tribute was a mildly witty way of expressing displeasure at Sinead's lack of professionalism in cancelling an appearance (and performance) at the last moment.

I WAS surprised to discover in the piece about Sinead O'Connor ('The life of Saint Sinead', Review, 29 November) that I had reportedly 'whooped with laughter' along with (supposed pop cronies - give me a break]) Rick Astley and Roger Daltrey, while Simon Bates played a cynical 'tribute to Sinead' in the form of Whitney Houston singing 'The Star Spangled Banner'.
