The Senior Manx Grand Prix

Synopsis

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.
A Running Commentary on the Senior
Amateur Tourist Trophy Race
Relayed from the Isle of Man
Commentators:
At the Grand Stand, GRAHAM WALKER At Ramsay Hairpin, VICTOR SMYTHE
(Copyright, see notice on page 645)
The thrills of Manx motor-cycle racing have been enjoyed for some years past by listeners throughout the country, but attention has hitherto been confined to professional events. This is the first running commentary ever broadcast from the Isle of Man on an amateur motor-cycle race—the Senior Manx Grand Prix, for machines with a maximum engine capacity of 500 c.c. The young men who take part in this (and in the Junior race for machines not exceeding 350 c.c.) do so for the sport of the thing alone. They tackle the ' T.T.' course under ' T.T.' conditions, but without the support that the motor-cycle trade gives to its riders. They ride standard machines, and those that can be bought from any agent. Manufacturers do not provide them with works staffs; if their machines break down, they must have them repaired at their own headquarters and at their own expense. The winner gets no big money prize; there is no trade bonus, and comparatively little publicity.

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.
