Devon, a county too long in the doldrums of rugby, have this year adopted a positive coaching policy and today's side will be chosen from an initially selected squad of 35 players. Their game is based on fast, open rugby and built round a light but mobile pack. A win today against a strong Somerset side could give them the confidence in their endeavour to eclipse their more renowned Cornish neighbours in the South-Western Division of the Championship.
In 1922 Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon came upon one of the most spectacular of all archaeological discoveries, the almost untouched tomb of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. After four years' intensive work the treasure was removed to the National Museum in Cairo, but the mummy of the pharaoh was resealed in its coffin in the tomb.
Now, for the first time since 1926, the coffin has been reopened so that a scientific X-ray study of the mummy could be made by a team led by Professor R. G. Harrison of the Department of Human Anatomy, Liverpool University.
The whole of the reopening, the X-ray process, and the interpretation of the results was filmed, to add yet another chapter to the extraordinary story of the young king who was buried some 3,300 years ago in mysterious circumstances in the Valley of Kings in Egypt.

It is not generally known that Oscar Peterson is a Canadian, or that also he has a very high regard for the music of another Canadian, Robert Farnon. Tonight these two giants of music meet for the first time in a television studio to pay mutual respect to each other's talent.
Oscar Peterson and Robert Farnon have selected a varied programme, ranging from familiar standards and recent popular music to a world premiere performance of a work by Farnon specially written for Oscar Peterson, featuring the trio and a 51-piece orchestra.

Renaissance: A new pop group, but with a difference. Renaissance is made up of people from older, first generation groups, who joined forces, they say, so as to make their money in greater personal freedom. The result is some splendid music.
Poet at Work: Britain's most illustrious poet, W. H. Auden, comes to the Review studio to read from his latest work.
Eighty Years On: Novelist and playwright Enid Bagnold, who talks to James Mossman, broke the taboo of upperclass Edwardian England. Today at 80 she is still as free in her mind as many of those who might think they have left her behind.
