Background: Visnews was at Cambridge Feb 26 to film the first official inter-university tiddly winks match between Oxford and Cambridge. After a two hour battle, Cambridge University smashed a first-class Oxford side to become the all-England Tiddlywinks champions.
The Cambridge team - already world champions after their fighting victory last year over the Goons (members of the radio programme cast of the Goon Show) won by 64 points to 48.
