: app... A Running Commentary on the SCOTLAND v. WALES

International Rugby Match, by Mr. J. M' MACLENNAN
S.B. from Edinburgh
IN its short history as a Rugby International venue, the Murrayfield ground has already acquired a great reputation as the scene of memorable matches, and there is every prospect of another being added to the list this afternoon. The odds. of course, are on Scotland. Always very hard to beat at home, they bid fair to be as formidable a team this year as they were last season, when they shared the Championship with Ireland. In beating the all-conquering Waratahs they gave indications of form that no country in the championship can disregard, and their victory at Colombes, though not of equal significance, was another reassuring sign for their supporters. Wales, on the other hand, are a team whose possibihtcs cannot yet be accurately judged, but even on the firm turf of Murrayfield they are always liable to spring a surprise, and no Scotsman in the stands can feel quite happy about the result until the final whistle blows. English sportsmen will feel particularly interested in today's game, as it will give a very good lino on form for the Calcutta Cup match at Twickenham on March 17.

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.
