The 87th Varsity Match
(38 wins) v.
(35 wins)
Last season's match, ending in an 8-0 win for Cambridge, came as a bitter disappointment to Oxford skipper Bob Phillips who had led his cosmopolitan side, including International players from Ireland and South Africa, into this match : as firm favourites. This season
Phillips brings to Twickenham a j team built around the formidable talents of Chris Laidlaw, scrum- 1 half of the fabulous 1966/67 touring All Blacks. But can one man, however talented, swing the fine balance of a match universally acknowledged as one of the rare examples of British competitive rugby?
Direct from Twickenham
Cliff Morgan introduces the occasion, the captains, the players-and discusses with both past and present Blues their attitudes to these games which have achieved a unique place in British sporting history.

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.
