The John Player League Somerset v Yorkshire
Last season Viv Richards scored 26 sixes in the John Player League for Somerset, and set up a new league record which will take a lot of beating.
The prize for the fastest 50 went to Jim Love of Yorkshire who took just 41 balls to make it.
With batting of this standard this should be a very high-scoring match indeed.
Peter Walker introduces the programme which includes news of today's other fixtures:
Essex v Hampshire
Gloucestershire v Worcestershire Lancashire v Glamorgan

Countdown for Leviathan
Can the whales survive the numbers game?
Last year, over 20,000 whales were slaughtered to help provide leather softeners, lubricating oils, cosmetics and crayons. Britain has banned the import of some whale products. But last year we imported 5,000 metric tonnes of sperm whale oil worth two million pounds.
Tomorrow, the International Whaling Commission meet in London. They will decide whether to ban whaling for ten years to allow stocks to recover or to set new catch levels for next season.
This programme shows how man's new concern for the whale conflicts with the commercial values of the whaling industry whose interests are protected by the iwc. Narrated by DEREK JONES

The Prospects, the Players
This year's Championships could well start their second century on a historic note with Bjorn Borg going for his third consecutive title.
On the eve of this year's Wimbledon John Barrett talks to the leading players to try to find out if anyone can beat Borg, if Virginia Wade can win for the second year and if it is Evonne Cawley 's turn to regain the title she first won in 1971 at the age of 19, together with the latest news from the All England Club and details of the matches you can see on BBC television tomorrow.
Eleanor Parker , William Bendix
In the second movie starring Kirk Douglas , he plays a characteristically tough role as Det Jim McLeod -a ruthlessly efficient New York policeman. The story centres on the dramatic happenings of one day in the life of the policeman and the 21st Precinct police station.
