Eye-Witness Account of the Senior T.T. Race by ' Ixion ' of The Motor Cycle. S.B. from Liverpool


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.
FOR those who like thrills, there are plenty of places in which to seek them. Crook plays, the movies, steeplechasing, prize-fights— all provide their quota ; but for real genuine hair-raising excitement, one thrill following so fast on the next that one never gets one's breath back at all, nothing can beat the Tourist Trophy races in the Isle of Man, when racing motor-cycles flash along the roads and skid round corners at an incredible number of miles an hour. And, of course, the races serve a very useful purpose in providing a test for the manufacturers, and giving British riders and British machines a chance to show their powers in competition with their rivals from abroad. This eye-witness account will be given by an expert, whose name carries weight in all the circles where motor-cycle racing and production are discussed.


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.
