Col. PHILIP TREVOR: 'Prospects for the Coming Season '


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.
TO the cricketer, the approach of May means one thing and one thing only-the return of what he secretly regards as the only real game to play. At this time of the year the air is full of promise, and everywhere bats are being unwrapped and flannels restored to the lisht of day ; grounds reawaken, and at the nets the knock of bat on ball is heard again. And to the non-playing cricketer Wisden becomes not merely the solace of a desolate winter, but a live reference book again ; the county table is open for reshuffling, individual records lose their security, and the book of cricket history lies open at a fair page. This evening Colonel Philip Trevor , one of the leading writers on the game, will give an authoritative survey of the prospects for 1928.


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.
