BERNARD DARWIN : The New Amateur
Golf Champion'
Relayed from the Club House, Prestwick, Ayrshire
THE SPEAKER tonight has been in the front flight of amateur golfers for the last thirty years. He has twice reached the semi-final of the Amateur Cham-pionship, has represented England in eight International matches, and Britain v. America at Long Island, in 1922. Among his trophies are the Don Memorial Cup, won on three occasions ; the Gold Vase, 1919 ; and the President's Putter of Oxford and Cambridge Golfing Society, 1924.
He has just had the honour of being made captain elect of the Royal and Ancient Club of St. Andrews, and is to drive himself into office at the next autumn medal in September. He will rank among the very few Englishmen, who have been captain of the first golf club in the world to receive the designation ' Royal ', King William the Fourth bestowing the honour.
Mr. Bernard Darwin is a well-known writer on golf, and also a well-known broadcaster; it will be remembered that he gave eye-witness accounts of the play in the Walker Cup. He was one of the selectors of the British team.

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.
