The seventy-sixth Calcutta Cup match was played today. On the last occasion at Twickenham (in 1967) this fixture produced no less than 41 points with England winning 27-14.
Scotland have not won at Twickenham since 1938 and last year at Murrayfield Scottish Rugby reached despair yet again when England came from behind after being six points down to snatch victory and leave Scotland with the "wooden spoon".
Today's fixture matched an England XV supremely confident after their impressive victory over France against a Scottish side who after their promising win in Paris in the first International of the season later succumbed to the superior talents of Wales and Ireland.

John Coast author and ex-P.O.W. goes back to Thailand to Return to the River Kwai
In company with three of his former Japanese captors, John Coast revisits the scenes of his enforced labour along the banks of the River Kwai. Here, twenty-five years ago, thousands of British lives were sacrificed by the Japanese to drive a railway line through the jungle from Bangkok to Burma.
If it had not been for the now famous film "The Bridge on the River Kwai" few people would remember their epic struggle for survival. But ironically, just because of the film, fact and fiction have become somewhat confused.
Tonight's film is a personal and evocative account of just what did happen during the building of this infamous railway.

Rembrandt - Painter of Man
1969 is the third centenary of Rembrandt's death. The first of a series of exhibitions to mark the occasion opens at the British Museum on Thursday.
Release takes this opportunity to show the distinguished film about Rembrandt's life and work directed by the Dutch film-maker Bert Haanstra.
"The most important British playwright to emerge in the 1960s" is how The Observer's Theatre Critic described Edward Bond whose season of plays is now running at the Royal Court Theatre in London. Yet he is perhaps best known as the author of Saved which caused violent revulsion in some critics and members of the public and provoked an unprecedented summons by the Director of Public Prosecutions.
His latest play "Early Morning" opened last Thursday, and a scene from it will be shown in this Release item in which Bond talks to Ronald Eyre.
