The Services Tournament, held at one time at the Stadium Club, has taken place in recent years at various Service centres, such as Portsmouth, Aldershot, and Uxbridge (where it was held last year). This is the first time it has been staged at the Empress Hall, Earls Court.
One team each will compete from the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Boxing Association, the Army Boxing Association, the Royal Air Force Boxing Association, and the Territorial Army Boxing Association. Each team consists of six officers, one at each weight from feather to heavy, and eight other ranks or ratings, one at each weight from fly to heavy. The team winning the largest number of points is awarded the coveted trophy presented by the Imperial Services Boxing Association.
The semi-finals were held at

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
