His­tory ride on Iron Age char­iot

TUES­DAY Gold bul­lets and corkscrew jumps

Sunday Sport - - SPORT CLASSIFIED -

THE fifth day at the Bar­bican Cen­tre in York, fea­tur­ing matches in the sec­ond round of the rank­ing event.

There are 16 matches sched­uled to take place across the ta­bles to­day, which will see the line- up for the third round con­firmed.

Most of the seeded play­ers pro­gressed with ease at this stage last year, but Judd Trump and Stu­art Bingham were two high- pro­file ca­su­al­ties.

Hazel Irvine presents. Snooker on a Sun­day af­ter­noon. Per­fect post- roast en­ter­tain­ment. THE his­to­rian re­veals a story of in­va­sion in Bri­tain span­ning mil­len­nia, beginning with him felling a tree with a flint axe in Kent and rid­ing an Iron Age char­iot.

Sam Wil­lis also searches for clues of in­va­sion at Sils­bury Hill and tracks down ev­i­dence of the Beaker peo­ple, who brought ceramics, met­al­work and beakers to Bri­tain.

In­ter­est­ing enough, but Wil­lis strikes me as a bit of a dick. DER­MOT O’Leary in­tro­duces the cli­max of this year’s tal­ent con­test. The re­sults of last night’s per­for­mance at Wem­b­ley Arena are in and one of the three fi­nal­ists has been elim­i­nated from the con­test. The two re­main­ing acts must give one fi­nal per­for­mance to im­press the view­ing pub­lic and the judges, be­fore one is crowned this year’s win­ner.

Aaaaand, re­lax! It’s over for another year! JAMES Bond’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the death of a worl­drenowned sci­en­tist work­ing on so­lar tech­nol­ogy draws him into a bat­tle of wits with a stealthy as­sas­sin who dis­patches his vic­tims with a golden bul­let and has the Bri­tish se­cret agent next in his sights.

If you’re won­der­ing, it’s the one with the car do­ing that corkscrew jump.

Spy adventure star­ring Roger Moore, Christo­pher Lee, Britt Ek­land and Maud Adams. FOOTAGE of an­i­mals that live on the coast, in­clud­ing sea lions work­ing in packs to hunt tuna in the shal­lows and mo­ray eels that ven­ture out of the wa­ter to seek out food on dry rocks.

Puffins must brave preda­tors to bring a mouth­ful of food back to their young, and king pen­guins must avoid ele­phant seals and go with­out food for a month while they moult.

Plus, footage of the bizarre Leap­ing Blenny, a fish that hates the wa­ter.

Christ, this se­ries is good!
