Today BBC-2 colour cameras visit the West Country for the first time in this series. In the charming rural setting of the Brislington Cricket Club on the outskirts of Bristol, Somerset, led by their new captain Brian Langford, are hosts to Surrey whose 1969 aspirations must have been checked by the premature retirement of Ken Barrington. Today, however, he joins the BBC commentary team of Peter West and Neil Durden Smith to provide constructive comment on the performances of his recent fellow players.
Today's other fixtures: Essex v. Middlesex, Hampshire v. Yorkshire, Kent v. Warwickshire, Leicestershire v. Gloucestershire, Northamptonshire v. Lancashire

A portrait of Alun Lewis, poet and soldier
Before he died in Burma in 1944 Lewis wrote some of the most moving and memorable poems to come out of the Second World War. His character was paradoxical: a pacifist who became a soldier, a lieutenant happier with the rank and file than in the officers' mess, a man of action who often suffered intense periods of withdrawal.
Tonight's film, which contains passages from unpublished journals, includes accounts of Lewis by his mother, his wife, and Lord Chalfont, a brother officer in the South Wales Borderers. Side by side with his poems these contributions make an examination of what Lewis once called 'the fragile universe of self.'
