Folk singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn often wrote about his Christian faith in the 70s, but in a non-preachy way that emphasised his care for fellow humankind. His songs became more political in the 80s, most notably when he released the angry "If I Had A Rocket Launcher" after visiting a Guatamalan refugee camp on behalf of Oxfam.

The great white shark and the killer whale are the most formidable predators in the sea. These animals are so dangerous that they would never challenge each other…or so we thought. One morning, off the Californian coast, a boatload of tourists witnessed the ultimate clash of the titans: an unexpected killing challenges the great white shark's supremacy as the ultimate predator when one became prey to a killer whale.

You want sharks? We’ve got sharks, because… SHARK WEEK is back! Returning to Discovery Channel screens from 10-16th August, Shark Week features a raft of programmes on the razor-toothed predators. Highlights include Airjaws Finding Colossus, in which shark experts Chris Fallows and Jeff Kurr visit the legendary Seal island in South Africa in search of Great Whites; Mythbuster Jawsome, which counts down the 25th biggest shark myths of all time and Sharkpocalypse, which explores the alarming trend of sharks moving closer to shorelines and its link to the increase in shark attacks. This year also features Megalodon, which scored a huge hit in the US exploring the myth around the massive prehistoric shark. Did it die out 200 million years ago, or is it still alive today?

This set was a change of pace for tenor saxophonist Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis. Backed by three trumpeters (Clark Terry gets some solos), a rhythm section (pianist Lloyd Mayers, bassist Larry Gales and drummer Ben Riley) and a percussion section led by Ray Barretto, Lockjaw performs four compositions by Gil Lopez (who arranged all of the selections) plus "Tin Tin Deo," "Star Eyes" and his own "Afro-Jaws." The Afro-Cuban setting is perfect for the tough-toned tenor, who romps through the infectious tunes.
