94 Not Out
Wilfred Rhodes has become a legend in his own lifetime. He played in his first Test match - which was W. G. Grace's last - in 1899; his last in 1926, when he was 48. He is now 94. John Arlott visits him and accompanies him to a match.

Also... a few minutes before the vast television coverage of the Munich Games begins, Welland and Wooldridge turn a critical eye on the Olympic Movement.

Otto Klemperer conducts Symphony No 9, in D minor
with Teresa Zylis-Gara (soprano), Janet Baker (mezzo-soprano), George Shirley (tenor), Theo Adam (bass)
New Philharmonia Chorus
Chorus-master Wilhelm Pitz
New Philharmonia Orchestra
leader Emanuel Hurwitz

Tonight's programme was recorded at a public concert in the Royal Festival Hall in 1970, the Beethoven bicentenary year. It completes the cycle of symphonies conducted by Otto Klemperer, the leading Beethoven conductor of our day, when he was 85 years old. It was the last time he conducted all nine symphonies, for earlier this year he announced his retirement from the concert platform.
Commentary spoken by Richard Baker

"The series has been as valuable in its own way as Kenneth Clark's Civilisation" (Daily Mail)
