The first day's play in the SURREY versus HAMPSHIRE Match at the Oval, described by Mr. P. F. WARNER
THE first cricket match of the season began at the Oval to-day, when Surrey met
Hampshire in the County Championship. The opening of the season at the Oval is always an event for Surrey's supporters, whose number is legion and whose enthusiasm is unbounded, and for London's cricket fans generally. This evening all of them who could not enjoy the match from under the shadow of the historic gas-works will be able to hear it described by one of the most famous of living cricketers, who is also one of the most expert critics of the game. Mr.
P. F. Warner's playing career ended only a few years ago. and in the course of it he won a world-wide reputation as a batsman and captain. Besides captaining Middlesex for many years, he led M.C.C. teams in South Africa and in Australia, where his teams won the Ashes in 1903-4 and 1911-12.


Unknown: Mr. P. F. Warner

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.
