The second day's play direct from the All England Club
The First Round of the Ladies' Singles
The richest Wimbledon in history offers over E100,000 in prize money, and the Ladies' Champion will collect £7,000 -a far cry from the £750 reward for winning the first ' Open ' in 1968. Is BILLIE JEAN KING Still the girl they all have to beat, and can she collect her sixth title? The answers will be provided during the next two weeks of this fascinating championship.

Next week is Henley Week. Of all the events which use sport as an excuse to ease out the champagne corks and have a social junket-Ascot, Wimbledon, Lord's, Cowes-the most exquisitely English is Henley Royal Regatta. The course is English to the point of idiosyncrasy: it doesn'conform to international standards for one inch of its beautiful length. Yet every oarsman in the world wants to row on it. Even the Russians send their best men to heave and sweat past the Stewards' enclosure, where the English upper classes relax in deck-chairs, wear dazzling boat-club blazers, sip champagne, gossip with pretty women, and clap politely.
Jack Pizzey was at Henley last summer, mingling with the crowds and looking behind the scenes of this most English occasion.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in

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.
