Roar of the Crowd: The Caddies


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.
The series in which sports personalities talk about themselves and express their opinions against a backcloth of action looks at a less glamorous side of the professional golf circuit.
Caddies have been referred to as 'layabouts', 'vagrants', 'bums', and 'the travelling brewery'. But the top caddies feel that the professional golf stars could not get along without them and the advice and comfort they give when the pressure is on. Some golfers agree with them; others regard them as outdoor valets who should be seen, preferably in a smart boiler suit, but definitely not heard.
"The caddie and the golfer become a team .. my caddie knows me better than any other man on the face of the earth." (Billy Casper)

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.
