Next Saturday sees the beginning of this season's International Championship, and what chances lie therein for the players chosen for these the most important matches in the Rugby Union calendar. To play for one's country in the singular season of the Rugby Union Centenary would be pleasing in itself; to have also the opportunity of 'making' the Lions Tour of New Zealand next summer will be a dazzling challenge to the selected players.

Tonight's programme reviews the happenings of the last season and uses them as a preview of the teams and individuals who will be featured in Rugby Special in the coming weeks.

Alien's Return ...is how George Mikes describes his journey back to his native Hungary in this series of highly personal films.

A generation of Communist rule changes many things - but not the real character of the people.
George Mikes, writer, humorist, and traveller, left his native country in 1938 and settled in London. Since then he has gone back three times, including a visit in 1956 when he wrote a first-hand account of the unsuccessful attempt to overthrow the Communist regime.
In tonight's film the author of How To Be an Alien returns to look at today's Hungary in his own idiosyncratic way.
