The John Player League featuring
Hampshire v Kent
Test calls will undoubtedly rob Hampshire of West Indian stars Gordon Greenidge and Malcolm Marshall , but in the past five years the county have won the John Player League twice. Trevor Jesty , although missing several games through injury, completed 1,000 runs last season and under captain Nick Pocock much will be expected of him and all-rounder John Rice.
Kent saw the trophy snatched from their hands in last year's exciting televised finish. But any side able to call upon the services of Derek Underwood , Asif Iqbal , Bob Woolmer and young Graham Dilley will surely be in the prize money again.
PETER WALKER introduces the programme, which includes news of today's other fixtures.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
