The Daily Mirror TV critic reports on the previous evenings documentary on This Week which was about the dangers of smoking. There were a couple such TV documentaries around in 1974-75. Very little was known/reported at the time of the perils of passive smoking.

Season One of the Waltons on BBC2 had started a couple of months before. It would stay in this slot until the end of Season Three in 1976, before moving to BBC 1 (on a Sunday iirc)as its popularity increased.
A Monday evening slot on BBC2 was used from the late 60s to mid 70s for other US TV productions, Alias Smith & Jones & The High Chaparral.

A first in the modern era, a FA Cup Semi on a Sunday. Coventry v Leeds at Hillsborough was a delayed broadcast. KO 1215.
The KO was delayed by 15 minutes due to congestion at the Leppings Lane entrance. There was heavy overcrowding on the terrace amongst the Leeds contingent. Warnings about the issues post match went unheeded.

It was a great match 3-2(aet) infront of 51,000. I think most of us had a inkling that this was going to be Coventry’s year in the FA Cup Final.

The days of international boxing on terrestrial TV.

Former Essex Fire Brigade Fireman, Terry Marsh on in the afternoon. Marsh was unbeaten in his professional career(his amateur one was pretty good too) finishing as World Welterweight Champion before a diagnosis of epilepsy finished his career.
He was quite a big well know name of the era. it was a bit of a shock when he was arrested for the attempted murder of promoter Frank Warren in 1989, who was shot by a hooded gunman. No positive id, just bad blood between Marsh & Warren as a motive plus Marsh’s familiarity with guns after a stint in the RM serving in Ulsters bandit country around Crossmaglen. Marsh spent nearly a year on Remand before being acquitted in Court.

A bit of an upset in the second fight featured there as Horace Notice stopped Hughroy Currie in the sixth round. Notice was still British and Commonwealth Champion when they had a rematch 18 months and 5 fights later, this time stopping Currie in the 10th. Unfortunately for Horace that was his last fight as he was forced to retire with a detached retina and so ended 16-0. He was looking to step up to Frank Bruno's old European title but it wasn't to be.

Watching this. A lot has changed and a lot hasn't! Seen that one train was going to call at Tavistock!

Was appropriate for today as soon few trains going in and out of Waterloo due to a major signalling problem.

Interesting that wresting had moved to a lunch-time slot from its 4'oclock time. It was always good to watch wresting with the football scores scrolling accross thebottom of the screen. I presume World of Sport had been scrapped by 1989?
