A forty-over match for a purse of Â£50 between
Cambridge University (Past and Present) and Oxford University (Past and Present)
The history of cricket will forever acknowledge the contribution made to the game by our two premier universities. 'The Parks' at Oxford and 'Fenners' at Cambridge have produced some of the most illustrious cricketers of all time -

The commentators at Fenners: John Arlott, Peter West, Jim Laker

The death mask of the poet stands on a pedestal in the National Museum of Wales, and in the galleries about it there are paintings and pieces of sculpture-and exhibits in the departments of Natural History and Archaeology -that are as a counterpoint to Thomas's basic themes: love, war, and death, and the loss of childhood innocence.
In this film, images of these exhibits together with pictures of West Wales where the poet spent the most fruitful years of his life accompany...
