The Player's County League
GLOUCESTERSHIRE v. SUSSEX from Lydney in the Forest of Dean
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.

THE GOLDEN STATE
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.

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.
Narrated and produced by JOHN ORMOND
