Scotland v Wales
Live coverage of the Royal
Bank of Scotland international in the Five Nations championship from
Murrayfield, Edinburgh (kick-off at 2.30pm).
After the thrilling Welsh victory over the English in Cardiff a fortnight ago, the result of this match is certain to be vital to the outcome of the championship, with both teams able to win the Triple Crown. Wales won last season's encounter in Cardiff and now travel to Murrayfield in search of their first victory on Scottish soil since 1985. A Welsh win would also see them enjoy back-to-back victories over the Scots for the first time in seven years.
Scotland's record at home in the championship in recent seasons is second to none. They will hope to stretch that record and register not only their fourth successive victory over Wales at Murrayfield, but also their fifth win in seven games between the sides.
Commentary by Bill McLaren and Eddie . Butler Irelandv France
From Lansdowne Road, Dublin. Highlights at 4.00pm of the Digital international. Ireland's first outing in the championship since their opening weekend defeat at Murrayfield against Scotland sees them entertain
France, who have enjoyed their recent excursions to Dublin.
A French victory would not only be their eighth in a row over the Irish but would also be their fourth consecutive win at
Lansdowne Road.
Ireland have to go back ten years for their last win over France. Winger Moss Finn , with two tries, was the hero in 1983. A repeat performance today would prevent the French achieving their greatest period of dominance ever in this fixture.
Commentary by Nigel Starmer -Smith and Hugo MacNeill.

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.
