A description of the North v. South match at Sheffield, broadcast from the ground by Mr. P. F. Warner
S.B. from Sheffield
Although we have no Australians to keep English cricket up to concert pitch this year, and the New Zealanders are playing no Test Matches, there is plenty of international rivalry to come in the near future. An English team is to tour South Africa this winter, and the West Indies will visit England next year. There is, therefore, a very practical reason for the three Test Trials fixed for this summer (of which this is the first), as well as the invariable appeal of representative matches, and the value to younger cricketers of experience in company of such class.
This match is to be described by Mr. P. F. Warner, who did the Middlesex match with Nottinghamshire at Lord's on June 1. No cricketer now living has a greater playing record as a captain and batsman than Mr. Warner, and since his recent retirement from first-class cricket he has become famous as a writer on the game.

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.
