Sports Talk : Major L. R. Tosswill: The Coming Rugby Season


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.
Some three weeks after Association football has come in with a roar, 'Rugger' less obtrusively takes the field. There is no 'grand kick-off' when hundreds of whistles release thousands of players on the ball; but here and there the deserted stands of Rugby grounds fill up; the new-marked touchline is peopled with little groups of spectators; the teams come out, all looking a little plumper as to the person, a little cleaner as to the clothing, than one remembers them last year; and then, in five minutes, a mighty kick has taken the ball over the stand, the forwards have jumped at a line-out, and there they are again in the scrum, pushing and heeling in the well-remembered way. At this appropriate moment Major Tosswill will talk on this year's prospects for the leading clubs.

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.
