Classified Football Results at
5.0 and 5.50
A LOT has happened in sport since Grimsby Town played Derby County in the First Division, since Sir Donald Bradman said farewell to Test cricket in England, and we welcomed that brilliant young Australian Neil Harvey ; since Joe Louis was world heavyweight champion and Bruce Woodcock the British champion; since the Olympics came to Wembley. But Sports Report, that faithful friend of sportsmen and spectators ahke. can remember them all. This long-standing programme, now in its twentieth season, is once more wrapping up a week of sport expertly and with authority every Saturday night in the Sports Service.
But just as sport has itself changed radically through the years, so has Sports Report. There will be something controversial, something entertaining, plenty worth commenting on and always something new in this season's shows. What it will be, nobody knows-not even the producer Angus Mackay. Because Sports Report prides itself on its pace and, above all, its flexibility. It's a ' live ' show-and you know what's coming next almost as soon as we do ourselves

Four talks on the impact of painting on English poetry in the mid-nineteenth century 2: Dante Gabriel Rossetti by EDWARD LUCIE-SMITH
Mr. Lucie-Smith illustrates his concept of the interaction between Rossetti's aims as poet and painter. He argues that in comparison with the verse of the Nineties poets, the work of Rossetti is both flawed and redeemed by a kind of enriching vulgarity.
