The John Player League featuring
Derbyshire v Warwickshire
Warwickshire finished sixth in the John Player League last season and Derbyshire ninth. Although both teams will inevitably suffer through loss of Test players, there is plenty of strength still available with highest-paid cricketer Eddie Barlow for Derbyshire, and, if not selected for the Test team, Dennis Amiss , out to prove he should not be overlooked.
PETER WALKER introduces the programme which includes news of today's other fixtures:
Essex v Nottinghamshire Middlesex v Lancashire
Northamptonshire v Gloucestershire
Surrey v Glamorgan
Sussex v Worcestershire
Commentators at Chesterfield JOHN ARLOTT and JIM LAKER

: The World About Us

The Circus Moves On - In Calabria The old traditions of travelling players live on in Southern Italy. The Circus EmbeUriva is made up of seven families who never play a town for longer than three days before moving on. ' We need new audiences; we need the variety; the change of landscape, the change of people around us, as we need the air we breathe. We would die if we were settled.'
The backstage life, the travelling, the tent up, the tent down, the animals, the heat, the troubles, are all to be found in this film.
An outstanding documentary that conveys the texture and even smell of the people and places. (SUNDAY TIMES)

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.
