The John Player League featuring
Lancashire v Leicestershire
There is no doubt about the ability of these two teams in the one-day game. Lancashire were Champions in 1969 and 1970, and Leicestershire League winners in 1974 and equal second last year.
In the second televised match this season Leicestershire came from behind to beat Worcestershire in a dramatic finish in the final over.
Similarly, when today's teams met last year, Higgs snatched victory for Leicestershire when he took four wickets for 13 runs. PETER WALKER introduces the programme which includes news of today's other fixtures. Commentators at Old Trafford JOHN ARLOTT and JIM LAKER

The Hang-Glider Man
For centuries men dreamed of flying like birds - now they can; and do; and sometimes kill themselves in the process. Hang-gliding is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world and one which feeds on some of man's oldest dreams. Mike Harker is one of the professionals for whom hang-gliding has become a way of life. In this very personal film he speaks of its excitements, its dangers and his passion for it. We see him making breath-taking descents from Mount Fuji in Japan, from mountains in Italy and from cliff-tops in Hawaii. Presented by SIMON NORMANTON

In Sutri, near Rome, the Feast of Corpus Christi is celebrated Italian-style. The procession winds through ancient streets carpeted with flower petals: bishop, mayor, naughty altar boys, little girl angels, band, banners and crucifixes. It's a riot of colour in which the whole community takes part.

L. S. Lowry , R.A., died 16 months ago at the age of 89, just as the Royal Academy was preparing an exhibition of his life's work.
John Read , who first made a film about the artist 21 years ago, re-assesses the paintings and drawings of a man whose sense of loneliness and isolation nevertheless made him one of the most popular English painters of his time despite 40 years of critical neglect.

starring
Alan Bates , Janet Suzman
Peter Nichols , who is himself the father of a handicapped child, wrote this screen version of his powerful and controversial play, showing the effect of the severely handicapped on the lives of those close to them. Brian and Sheila have invented a character for their daughter since she will never have one of her own, and the desperate, bitter humour with which they involve her in their conversations ill conceals the strain on their marriage. One evening, their pretence of leading a natural life is shattered.
