Wales v Scotland France v Ireland
NIGEL STARMER-SMITH introduces highlights from the opening matches of the International Championship.
Wales are still recovering from their defeat by Romania in November, but Scotland have shown, in their draw with New Zealand, the form that took them to the historic 34-18 victory on their last visit to Cardiff.
Ireland and France shared the Championship last season, but Ireland, led by Lions' Captain Ciaran Fitzgerald and helped by the boot of Ollie Campbell, were the only side to defeat the French. Commentators BILL MCLAREN and NIGEL STARMER-SMITH

The Men's Downhill and Men's Slalom from Kitzbuehel, Austria
The classic Hahnenkamm races are a highspot of the alpine ski-ing season - even in the Olympic year. The spectacular 'Streif downhill course provides the most dramatic and daring ski-racing in the World Cup calendar, while the festival atmosphere of this fashionable Tyrolean resort is obviously enjoyed by the Canadian team. Former champion STEVE PODBORSKI has finished first or second in four of the last five downhills here and TODD BROOKER was crowned king of the Hahnenkamm 12 months ago. Commentator DAVID VINE

by ALAN BENNETT starring Alan Bates with Coral Browne and Charles Gray
When a mysterious Englishman appears in her dressing-room, Coral Browne assumes he is attached to the Embassy, but if so, why are his trousers out at the knees? And what does he want with her face-powder? An invitation to lunch will perhaps explain, though the lunch consists of one tomato.

The Benson and Hedges Masters from the Wembley
Ray Reardon v John Virgo
Both RAY REARDON and JOHN VIRGO have had disappointing seasons so far, neither of them being in the big money. Reardon - six times World Champion - will be all the more determined to begin the new year with some successes, while John Virgo , widely regarded as one of the most talented players on the circuit, must surely return to his form of a few years ago when he won the UK Championship.
DAVID ICKE introduces highlights of this best-of-9-frame match.
