Sports Talk, Sir HAROLD BOWDEN: 'Cycling tor Health and Pleasure '


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.
CYCLING has passed through many phases-first an eccentricity, then a craze, then a past fashion, until now it has settled down into a very popular sport, a still more popular pastime and a means of locomotion that makes the country habitable for many people to whom the automobile has not yet become possible. Nobody has ever denied the value of cycling from the point of view of health, and as there are said to be ten million cyclists in the country, the influence of the push-bike on the national health must have been immense. Sir Harold Bowden , who is now the head of a firm that employs 3,500 people making bicycles, has been in the trade all his life, and there is not much about the cycling habit that he does not know.

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.
