With 200 or more constituencies still to declare their results on the day after polling, the nation may be in for a 'cliff-hanger' climax determining the size of the next Governments overall majority. The odds are that one or other Party will tick up the magic 315th seat sometime after midday.

Whether on your domestic set, a car radio, or a transistor where you work. Radio 4 invites you to keep in touch with the latest results with the least possible disturbance to what vou have to do.

As in the'overnight operation. Radio 4s special Election team concentrates on flashes from constituencies of special interest and interviews with leading Partv spokesmen.
