The Player's County League featuring today
WARWICKSHIRE v. SURREY
Warwickshire is host to Surrey and the BBC cameras at its magnificent County Ground, Edgbaston, for the first time in this competition.
The entertaining struggle for supremacy in the Sunday League is now very much under way, producing each week surprise results, close finishes, and brilliant personal performances. One thing assured in today's match is that, given the weather, the wicket prepared under the supervision of that expert groundsman Bernard Flack should be fast, true, and yield a prolific run rate.

A series of films from all over the world about our astonishing planet and the people who live on it.
Two hundred miles south of Timbuctu lies a vast plateau of sandstone. After rising gently for 150 miles it suddenly drops sheer for over 900 feet, the result of a gigantic disturbance in the earth's crust. At the foot of this vast cliff live the Dogon-one of the most mysterious tribes in the continent of Africa.
One of the complex ideas which the Dogon hold on life is that each human being is mirrored by a twin in the animal kingdom. As a result, a man is forbidden to kill the animal with whom he shares a part of his soul, but if by accident or design he does so, then he kills part of himself.

A joint BBC-tv-SR production
Charles Gray as Inspector Waugh in three plays by Arden Winch.
In which a dead girl is waiting to be found in a dingy terrace house in London and Inspector Waugh begins asking questions ...
"I thoroughly recommend this; in Inspector Waugh Mr. Winch has created a detective who combines a Holmes-like omniscience with a splendidly sour, disgruntled wit. Addicts of the genre should catch on to this while there is still time." (The Times)
"Charles Gray's Inspector, all tweeds, turn-ups, waistcoat, and large expansive manner is immensely stylish." (Daily Mirror)
"The triumph of the exciting whodunit was that the corpse was irrelevant." (Daily Sketch)
