The Lighter Side of County Cricket, by JOHN CLAY this is the first of a series of talks appropriate to the summer, and though it will deal with cricket and be given by a first-class cricketer, it will touch on the lighter side of the game. Not John C. Clay leading his men into the Glammorgan field nor, with determined face, taking his run to the wicket, but Clay in the humorous vein he showed when he wandered into the Royal Welsh Show at Aberystwyth and gave over the air a delightful account of his adventures. Cricket lovers will foregather at the microphone in the evenings to laugh over the game they played so seriously on Saturday afternoon.

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.
