The first of the Quarter-Finals: Rochdale Hornets (blue with red and white V) v. Wigan (cherry and white hoops)
for the BBC-2 Trophy
The Floodlit Rugby League competition has had a most successful first round. There will be a new name on the trophy before the competition ends as Castleford, winners for the last three times, did not get past the first round. In the quarter-finals Rochdale Hornets are at home to Wigan. Rochdale have an enthusiastic lot of supporters, but Wigan are currently at the head of the league table. Wigan led by Eric Ashton, their manager, player, and coach, start with certain advantages. Some weeks ago they signed Keri Jones, of the British R.U. Lions, and they have a top scorer so far this season in full-back Colin Tyrar in their side.

Tales of the Twenties
Thark is a haunted house, purchased by the formidable Mrs. Frush from Sir Hector Benbow, a gay old dog with an eye for the ladies. Mistaken identities and misunderstandings pile one on the other, and as confusion multiplies, the scene moves from London to Thark for a chaotic confrontation with the supernatural.
Sir Hector Benbow:
Wherever it's happening-the television teams of Europe are there reporting and commenting. How did they see us-the others-themselves? Europa supplements and questions the home television diet by bringing each week 'The World Through European Eyes'.
Tonight's programme looks at an island in the sun-at the Iron Fist in the Iron Glove-at life in Haiti under 'Papa Doc' Duvalier
Introduced by Olivier Todd
The story of the Tate Gallery
How did this famous and unique collection of painting and sculpture come into being? What is in it, and why? Why does so much remain in store unseen?
Tonight's film argues, on the evidence of this famous collection, that the greatest artists are the inventors and not the imitators of the taste of their time.
Norman Reid, the present Director, explains his gallery's policy and purpose, and the nature of its problems in a period of controversy and change.
