France v England Ireland v Scotland
Last season saw a revival of England's rugby fortunes and third place in the Championship after three years of 'the wooden spoon.' The opening international this season against the champions, France, in Paris, must be their hardest task but a win could revitalise a side that for too long has flattered to deceive.
Scotland have won the last three matches against Ireland and must be slight favourites against a side undergoing a re-building process under new coach Noel Murphy. At Pare des Princes, Paris: commentator BILL MCLAREN

Vienna: The Mask of Gold
A personal documentary written and presented by Michael Frayn.
At the turn of the century. Vienna was still one of the world's great Imperial capitals. Seventy years on. all that remains of the golden mask of Viennese culture are the heavy imperial fagades, the tourist attractions and a nostalgia for past greatness.
Playwright, novelist and journalist, MICHAEL FRAYN explores the cultural legacy of those years. Behind the uniforms and rigid moral codes of court life, he examines the new world that was being born -the erotic world of the painters Klimt and Schiele, the world of the unconscious mapped by Freud, the new musical worlds of Mahler and Schoenberg. This film is an attempt to evoke the vanished civilisation that has shaped our lives.
A bewitching essay ... packed with beautiful things to look at and awash with glorious things to hear. (THE TIMES) A television achievement (9BSERVER)

The series of films featuring the re-discovered work of amateur cameramen and ' home-movie' makers of the 20s and 30s.
Introduced by James Cameron
' A home-made film ' says the title at the beginning of this reel, bought in a junkshop. It's a film portrait of the village of St Boswells in the Scottish Lowlands -or rather a portrait of the villagers themselves and its simple. direct style builds up a moving picture of its subjects' lives, to establish its unknown maker as something of a naive genius of the cinema.
