Middlesex, S.E. Division Champions v. Warwickshire, Midland Division Champions
Keith Macklin reports from Twickenham.
Warwickshire are favourites to regain the championship they won no less than seven times between 1958 and 1965. Middlesex can be impressive, but they were a little lucky to beat Durham in the semi-final. They will be hard pushed to match Warwickshire's formidable all-round talents.

Tolkien in Oxford
A film about The Lord of the Rings.
In Europe and Asia it's a school set book. In America it's a craze bigger than Batman: one million copies sold in 1967 alone. In Britain a lot of people have never even heard of it. J.R.R. Tolkien, seventy-six, retired Oxford don, talks about his major work. Readers in Oxford try to explain the phenomenon of the lord of the hobbits, the orcs, and the elves. A literary masterpiece or a pleasant donnish joke?

Peter Weston, a songwriter, finds himself the unwilling owner of Daisy, an alligator. After his efforts to dispose of her are thwarted - there is a delightful scene with Margaret Rutherford as a cranky pet-shop owner who, like Dr. Dolittle, can talk to the animals - Peter decides he will keep his increasingly endearing pet. However, he is then faced with his fiancee's challenge: "Either the alligator goes, or I do".
