: Mr. ALBERT THEAKER. Cycle Racing : The Five Mile Championship

CYCLE-RACING has never become quite so popular in England as it has in some foreign countries, notably France, where it is practically the national sport, and the winner of the Six Jours ranks with the Carpentiers, Borotras and Pellotier d'Oisys in popular esteem. But amongst those who have discovered it, it is regarded as one of the most thrilling sports to watch, and one that demands a high combination of strength and skill. The championships of the N.C.U. are the recognized British titles, and there is always a large and enthusiastic crowd to watch the struggle for them at Herne Hill.

: INDOOR GAMES

IF you find your repertoire of indoor games getting a shade threadbare— if you find it more and more difficult to find anything new and interesting to do in the wet evenings-then you may get some useful ideas from the series of broadcasts that starts tonight.
This first broadcast will take the form of a Letter Charade or Hidden Sentence, which will relate to a subject well known to all B.B.C. listeners. Clues will be broadcast, but the solution will not be given until The Radio Times of August 26.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
