Three well-known cricket enthusiasts get together to discuss the recent M.C.C. tour in Australia and recall some of its highlights with the aid of film.
Those taking part include R. W. V. Robins, Brian Johnston, and Crawford White, who reported the series for the News Chronicle.
It is also hoped that one or two members of the victorious M.C.C. team just back from Australia will drop in.

[Featuring] The Norwegian Ballet
A series of Biblical pictures devised by Ivo Cramer to music by Handel and Gluck.

This 'series of Biblical pictures' depicts the manger, Herod raging in his palace, the slaughter of the Innocents, the flight into Egypt, and later the Sermon on the Mount, the betrayal, Peter's denial, and the climax of Golgotha.

Two of the most remarkable and contrasted roles, those of Herod (pictured above) and of John the Apostle, are danced by Ivo Cramer, choreographer of The Message and a former pupil of Kurt Jooss. The company comes to London from Oslo specially for this performance, and this will be their first television appearance in this country.
At 10.0

(The Norwegian Ballet Company appears by arrangement with the Det Nye Theatre, Oslo)
