And a running Commentary on the Cinder Track Race Meeting
At Stamford Bridge
Under the Auspices of the Motor
Track Racing Association,
Relayed from Stamford Bridge
T IKE greyhound racing, motorcycle racing on cinder tracks is a recent importation into this country, and one that has immediately won the enthusiasm of English sport-lovers. The thrills of the ' dirt track,' ghastly in the strange white rays of the floodlights, where the crack riders come roaring and skidding round the hairpin bends, have gripped the Londoner thoroughly, and Stamford Bridge, the home of football and athletics and the London headquarters of baseball, has added another success to its list. Tonight these thrills will be communicated-vicariously-to the great body of listeners who live out of reach of Stamford Bridge.


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.
