An Exhibition of Play by Horace Lindrum and Willie Smith.
This is the first television demonstration of snooker. Both the players are expert professionals. Horace Lindrum, a nephew of the great Walter Lindrum, comes from Australia and is one of the few snooker players who can rival Joe Davis, the champion.

A display of various types of daffodils from the Daffodil Show to be held on April 15 and 16 under the auspices of the Royal Horticultural Society in the New Hall, Elverton Street. The blooms will be described by one of the exhibitors.
Alfredo Tomasini is a notable addition to the celebrities who have already appeared in the "Music Makers" series. He was born in Winnipeg (his real name is Young) and before becoming a professional singer he had a half-share in a drug store. Both he and his partner were keen on singing, however, and nowadays he can afford to smile when he remembers how the shop used to be closed every afternoon so they could study. But if Tomasini was not a good shopkeeper, he made up for it with his voice. Since 1932, when he joined an operatic company in Italy, he has been in the public eye as a baritone of fine quality in Europe, the United States, and Canada.
In the afternoon at 3.10 viewers saw some beautiful specimens from the Daffodil Show to be held at the New Horticultural Hall tomorrow and the day after. This evening two well-known market growers will describe the art of growing daffodils in England. An interesting addition to the discussion will be a film illustrating the various stages of growth to the final process of packing.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a

- not those of today.
