A Running Commentary on the County Championship Match, relayed from Lord's Cricket
Ground
Commentator : Mr. P. F. WARNER
DURING the intervals in the commentary. music will be broadcast from the Studio by THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND, conducted by Lieut. B. WALTON O'DONNELL, and VIOLET OPENSHAW (Contralto) and WATCYN WATCYNS (Baritone).
THIS is the first day of a match in which North
-L meets South, a match that often has an important bearing on the County Championship. It is a meeting of the giants, where Test Match players whose names will live in cricket history face each other. Moreover, this is the first occasion of a broadcast from Lord's, the headquarters of the game, the most famous cricket-ground in the world.
The descriptive account will follow the same lines as the first of its kind-the Rev. F. H. Gillingham 's story of the match between Essex and New Zealand at Leyton last month. After a resume of the morning's play, the B.B.C.'s narrator will give a further description at hourly intervals, unless any especially exciting event occurs, in which case the microphone at Lord's will be put through to Savoy Hill, and the message will be inserted into the afternoon programme from the Studio.
The narrator on this occasion is Mr. P. F.
Warner, the former captain of Middlesex and England, whose brilliant playing career is still fresh in the memories of cricket-lovers. He is now one of the leading experts and writers on the game.
The score will be given at 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, and 6 o'clock.

Mr. L. DU GARDE PEACH
' On Running Commentaries '
THE running commentary on sporting events has become a regular and recognized feature of the broadcast programmes, and thus it is fair game for a burlesque. Tonight Mr. L. du Garde Peach-well known to listeners as the author of Heterodyned History and to readers of Punch as L. du G.-will give an impression of the running commentary as it might easily be.
