W. R. HAMMOND, of the Gloucestershire XI: Cricket


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
THE most remarkable feature of the present JL cricket season has been the rise to the very first rank of Walter Hammond , the young Gloucester cricketer. Two years ago he first made his mark in county cricket, and in the winter of 1925-6 he did great things with the M.C.C. team in the West Indies; but last year illness kept him out of the game. This summer he went right off with a bang and beat Dr. W. G. Grace 's record by the speed with which he scored his first thousand runs. Since then he has continued his fine form, and received duo recognition by being chosen to play for England against the Rest. All followers of cricket will welcome the chance to hear him talk.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
