Bank Holiday Grandstand
1.0 to 5.25
Introduced by Harry Carpenter
From 1.10 Cricket: Sussex v. Middlesex
Second day's play from Hove
Hove is one of the most attractive county grounds, and holiday games there generally draw good crowds. Today is the second day of a match between two teams which have performed unremarkably so far this season-despite the fact that in Ted Dexter and Fred Titmus each has a cricketer capable of swinging the fortunes of any game. At the moment neither team seems likely to have much say in the final argument for the Championship which looks like belonging to one of the two Midland sides, Warwickshire or Worcestershire, this year. But both Sussex and Middlesex have the ability to play dashing, attractive cricket on occasion.

From 2.0 Athletics: International Invitation Meeting
(Organised by the B.A.A.B. in conjunction with the 'News of the World')
At the White City Stadium
This afternoon's International Invitation Meeting promises to provide stern competition from several European countries - notably France and Poland - for British athletes. There will be a full programme of metric distances and British performances will be carefully scrutinised by the Olympic selectors who will announce their team for Tokyo in a fortnight's time. The meeting was arranged in a hurry after the Hungarian team, which was to have competed against Britain today, was forced to withdraw. Despite the relatively short notice the response received from other European countries has been very satisfactory.
Commentators: David Coleman and Norris McWhirter
