BBC2 Invitation Pairs Crown Green Bowling Tournament from the Mitchells and Butler Sports and Social Club, Birmingham.
The defending champions ROY ARMSON and NOEL BURROWS enter the fray tonight - strongly fancied to become the first pairing to retain the BBC2 Top Crown Trophy. But they face possibly the best pairing from the Midlands in PETER VARNEY and BOB GILFILLAN. Though new faces to this particular tournament, they have a host of individual Midlands' titles to their credit, and they could provide something of an upset if they play to form. RICHARD DUCKENFIELD introduces the action.

In 1974, producer Paul Watson introduced to television the Wilkins family of Reading. They were filmed day and night. Their prejudices, thoughts, hopes, fears and disappointments became public knowledge. It was the first time that the private life of an English family had been exposed with such candour and intimacy. This is a chance to see again a series that helped to change documentary film, and to evaluate from today's perspective the ups and downs of an urban family, who knew nothing of Thatcherism, yuppies, the Princess of Wales and Neighbours.
