A relay from the Challenge Round of the Davis Cup at Wimbledon.
In addition, the programmes between 3.0 and 4.0 will be interrupted for short relays from Wimbledon.
"In my opinion, much of the fascination of television, and to a great extent its future, is bound up with actuality, a virtue which it alone possesses, and which the news-reel, with its time-lag, misses. In direct television the viewer will learn and appreciate that the picture he is watching in his home is the picture he would be seeing at that very moment were he with the camera, and not one that has already taken place." These words of the Director of Television, written in April, have had particular significance during the last few weeks, when transmissions of tennis from Wimbledon have been a regular feature of the programmes.
Viewers are reminded that on July 26 and July 27, when normal programmes have been suspended, there will be transmissions from Wimbledon of the Davis Cup between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., with, if necessary, an extension to 4.30 p.m. This means, therefore, that viewers will have an opportunity of seeing something of all three days of the Davis Cup Challenge Round, instead of the first day only, as was originally contemplated.

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.
