Our farmer friend had been having a good old root around and a clear out in one of his buildings when he unearthed a little bit of bygone ephemera from 1948. A copy of the Radio Times from April 25 - May 1. Nowadays they would call it a Collectors Edition or some such nonsense, in most cases it was probably a fire lighter in those days.

How about an illustrated talk on the radio? That's right up there with Peter Brough and Archie Andrews, a ventriloquist and his dummy on the radio? Then there's Mr Cricket himself, John Arlott, in a supporting role so it's obviously early in his career.
There is also a commentary by Raymond Glendenning on an important Football League match.
I can guarantee it wouldn't be Middlesbrough being featured, or Ipswich.
