The First Test Match
England v. South Africa
A commentary on the closing overs of the day and a summary of the first day's play, by E. W. Swanton, from the Wanderers' Cricket Ground,
Johannesburg
For the first time in history descriptions of the closing overs and a short account of each day's play in all five Test matches will be broadcast from South Africa. The broadcasts have been arranged in co-operation with the South African Broadcasting Corporation, and E. W. Swanton, who will undertake them, is the well-known Middlesex cricketer and sports writer. Today he will come to the microphone with his opening broadcast at the Wanderers' Ground, Johannesburg, where, six thousand feet above sea level, the English cricketers will be striving to reverse the defeat they suffered when South Africa last visited London in 1935.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
