Presented by Richard Tilling
Editor, Lawrie Higgins

Today's Triple Crown match at Cardiff Arms Park presents a special occasion. For the first time in rugby history Wales and England meet in the last and not the first International of the season. For England the supreme prize; for Wales a 'face-saving operation.' And so the scene is set for a tremendous battle between an English side that has improved in every game this season, and a Welsh side that promised so much but never quite made it.
England has taken the Triple Crown more times than any other country - thirteen times - the last occasion being the great year of Dickie Jeeps as Captain; the year of the new boy Richard Sharp, who swept through every defence in majestic fashion. He was undoubtedly the player of the year in the 1959-60 season, which was also a championship year for England, who shared the honour with France.
It will be extremely difficult for Phil Judd to inspire his side to a win at Cardiff Arms Park today, despite the fact that Wales are at a low ebb. The team spirit and loyalty that Judd has created will be matched by the electric, sometimes terrifying atmosphere of Wales's national ground. England will be faced not only by a Welsh fifteen but by 50,000 Welsh fans gripped with rugby fever and longing for a Welsh rugby revival. (Cliff Morgan)

(There will also be commentaries in the Welsh Home Service and in the Sports Service. Recorded highlights can be seen tonight at 7.30 on BBC-2 and tomorrow afternoon on BBC Wales.)

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
