The Police of Great Britain v.
The Combined Services
A commentary on some of the fights by Dan Titchener from
Harringay Arena Here is a chance for those who either respect or fear the guardians nf law and order to see how the police constable fares when he really gets going with the gloves on. This is the thirteenth contest between the Police and the Combined Services, and so far the Bobbies have been unbeaten. They will put a formidable array of constabular flesh into the ring. Their team will include W. Gallagher of the Ulster Constabulary, formerly Irish and Scottish Welterweight Champion, and J. Mc. Mullen, the present Irish Heavyweight Champion. The Services, it is expected, will feel the loss of the four Air Force boxers who were killed in an air crash in Northern Rhodesia in April this year. Dan Titchener , who will give the commentary, will be remembered for past broadcasts in which he has given commentaries on various London matches. He is closely associated with arhateur boxing as a trainer and referee.

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.
