12.45 Grandstand
Introduced by David Coleman
From Cardiff Arms Park
Featuring International Rugby Union: Wales v. France
Today's final match in the International Championship - on BBC1 and BBC Wales, and in colour on BBC2. Commentary on Radio 3 and 2 and Radio 4 Welsh Home Service.

France come to Cardiff Arms Park for today's rugby union clash knowing that victory over Wales will give them their first-ever International Championship 'grand slam' - they have already beaten England, Scotland and Ireland.
England did the last grand slam - in 1956-57.
Despite their successes, this is not a great French side. They snatched a narrow victory over the Scots in the last seconds of the match; they were rarely convincing against an Irish team who had two men injured; and England led them at half-time.
The French have made many changes in a winning side this season - but almost certain to be playing are the Camberabero brothers, Guy and Lilian - the 'mini halves': neither tops the five foot mark by more than three or four inches.
Wales are short of their greatness of some earlier years, but they are never easy to beat, particularly when playing at home before 60,000 Welshmen. And the record book is on their side. In 1955 France were even closer to the grand slam. They had only to win their last match. at home to Wales. The Welshmen went to Paris - and won 16-11.

: The Saturday Thriller: Criss Cross

Feature films with suspense, danger, excitement.

Perhaps the most stylish thriller of its period, Criss Cross tells the story of Steve Thompson, an armoured-car driver, who gets caught up in a big pay-roll robbery. The story is told largely in flashback - as Steve drives to a rendezvous with the thugs, he remembers how he came to be involved. He remembers, too, how he returned to Los Angeles to find his attractive ex-wife Anna. When they met again, she still seemed to be in love with him.
But Pete Ramirez, a detective friend of Steve's, warned him off, on the grounds that Anna was involved with Slim Dundee, a notorious hoodlum. But Steve didn't heed his warning ...

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.
