RT. Commentator deduced from Radio Times listing (barring last minute changes of plan)
1. Part of "Match of the Day Special" with Athletics
2. RT lists David Coleman and Barry Davies, Coleman probably scheduled for postponed game
3. Part of "Match of the Day Special" with Show Jumping
4. Three games originally scheduled (thought to include Southend v Liverpool and Nottm Forest v Aston Villa)
    but only 4 Cup games were played due to poor weather. Coleman, Davies and Motson listed in RT.
5. BBC Radio Bristol reporter drafted in at short notice thanks to numerous postponements (thanks David!),
    RT original listing has John Motson on a Div1 game and Barry Davies on a top of the table Div2 game
6. Scheduled FA Cup games postponed; RT originally lists Coleman, Davies and Motson on Cup games
7. RT originally lists Coleman and Davies but Motson's book has him at Derby; Davies probably at Pompey
8. Scheduled 70m FA Cup episode cancelled: Ipswich v Liverpool and WBA v Soton, Davies & Motson in RT
