Polo - The 1979 British Open Championship Final from Cowdray Park

Following on from the previous post, here is the coverage by Southern Television of the final of the 1979 Gold Cup.

Day By Day Special (1979) Cowdray Park

From the GH video collection this item from the much loved and greatly missed Southern Television.

An episode of the evening magazine programme Day By Day. It was originally intended to be broadcast entirely live from Cowdray Park but on the day this was not possible due to "technical issues" (most likely, given this is 1979, industrial action). So Fred Dinenage is in the Southampton studios with David Bobin reporting from Midhurst - or more accurately of course, Easebourne.
