    SPORT: ATHLETICS
    N.B. This dopesheet had to be written without sight of the film and entirely from the German lists of results attached hereto and from the notes scribbled thereon by Magny. The dopesheet was, however, read over to Magny on the telephone this evening when he said that it accorded with what he remembered of the RTF transmission of the film at 13.00 today.
    If N.T.S. decide to hold the film for transmission tomorrow, instead of using it tonight, as is likely, I will telex you. Then, if you should find, on viewing the film, that any changes should be made in the dopesheet, will you please telex them to me, in order that I may inform N.T.S.
