: Sunday Cricket: The Player's County League: Gloucestershire v. Sussex

from Lydney in the Forest of Dean
Introduced by David Vine

Gloucestershire will always have a place in cricket history as being the county of two of the finest batsmen ever-Dr. W. G. Grace and Walter Hammond. Although its fortunes in recent years have been less than memorable, the arrival this year of Geoff Pullar and the tenacious-ness of its new captain Tony Brown will undoubtedly strengthen a very able side.
The visitors this afternoon, Sussex, are building a reputation for providing an exciting finish in this competition, losing to Yorkshire and Kent by only seven and ten runs respectively and winning by the narrow margin of six against Warwickshire in their last televised match in May.
Today's other fixtures: Derbyshire v. Northamptonshire, Hampshire v. Warwickshire, Kent v. Lancashire, Leicestershire v. Essex, Yorkshire v. Worcestershire

: The World About Us: The Golden State

A series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet and the creatures that live on it
Oranges, sunshine, surfing, Hollywood-that's modern California. But it's also smog, garbage, overcrowded roads, and sprawling cities. A thousand people a day pour in to add to the twenty million already there. From the highest snowy mountains to the lowest hottest deserts man's impact has been felt... by sea elephants, snow geese, Californian condors, sea otters, and the grey whales that spend half their life on an amazing migration.

: Piano with Many Strings

The art of Ceri Richards
His ability to draw resembles that of a Renaissance old master.
Born the son of a South Wales tinplater, and as a boy apprenticed to an electrician, Ceri Richards has achieved an international reputation-not least by rich and complex pictures that have their starting points in musical themes.
An accomplished musician himself, he was nine when in 1912 the Russian Kandinsky wrote 'The soul is a piano with many strings. Colour is a keyboard. The artist is the hand that plays on them.'
Ceri Richards's art bears out that thought.



Subject: Ceri Richards
Narrated and produced by: John Ormond

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
