Today listeners are to hear from Murrayfield a running commentary on the first international match this year against the All Blacks, without exception the most brilliant Rugby football team the world has ever seen.
It is a curious fact that the only men who have beaten them in Great Britain are the men of Wales. In their first visit here in 1905 they were only beaten once-by Wales. In their second visit in 1924 they were not beaten at all, and the only team to draw with them was Wales. This year they were beaten for the first time since their first triumphant visit-by Swansea.
On their first visit they scored 868 points in the internationals and only forty-seven were scored against them. On their second visit they scored 721 points against 112.
The remaining internationals will be broadcast as follows:
December 7 versus Ireland; December 21 versus Wales; January 4 versus England.

presented by BORIS YVAIN in Songs and Dances with CARMEN DEL Rio
Boris Yvain 's orchestra, which specialises in tangos, rumbas, Viennese waltzes and gypsy music, has won great popularity since its first broadcast last May. The combination of the Continentals consists of two pianos, piano accordion, two violins and guitar. Their repertoire, which is extensive, includes music that has been specially collected and arranged from national songs and dances all over the world, particularly Argentine music. The vocalist and announcer is the beautiful and gifted Carmen del Rio, who, herself half South American, has sung all over South America, and was the first woman to broadcast out there, from Buenos Aires.

The Referee Talks Back
A. E. FOGG
When the referee's decision agrees with the wish of the crowd he is a jolly good fellow ; but the wish of the crowd does not always coincide with the laws of football. How many spectators at a match know the rule governing the handling of the ball ? How many know the off-side law ? This talk by one of the most respected referees in first-class football today is illuminating.
It may well be the opinion of listeners that A. E. Fogg has the same qualities at the microphone as he shows on the football field. He knows his job. There are no trimmings to his talk and there are no flourishes about his refereeing.
At the last Cup Final he was far and away the shortest man on the ground, but he exercised superb control. One warning throughout the whole game, and hardly a dissent from any of his verdicts. A few weeks ago he refereed the match between Arsenal and Chelsea, with a record attendance for any League match ever played in England.

This Gala Programme very much lives up to its title, for acts famous in the theatre and on the air are to broadcast with stars of international fame. Elsie and Doris Waters are to do a new Gert and Daisy act--a gala in itself. Ivy St. Helier is as good at the microphone as she is on the stage, as she proved in the radio versions of La Vie Parisienne and Florodora.
The one and only Elisabeth Welch comes from Drury Lane to broadcast tonight.
An interesting first broadcast in this country is that of Rawicz and Landaucr. These brilliant pianists have been famous broadcasters in Vienna for some time, and were both of them originally professors of music.
Then American stars are represented by the Four Yacht Club Boys, one of the greatest entertainment acts ever to visit this country, while Riccio, the Italian singer, is a topliner in the United States.
