: SURREY v. YORKSHIRE

A Running Commentary on play in the County
Championship Match
Relayed from Kennington Oval
WHEN Surrey visited Yorkshire on the Leeds ground, at the end of May this year, they got completely thrashed. Beaten by ten wickets, in fact—a most humiliating defeat for the pride of the South, the county that gave English cricket its Hayward and its Hobbs, and that still commands a batting strength remarkable even in this free-scoring age. So the match that starts at the Oval today will bo a needle match, with Surrey all out for revenge, and Yorkshire fighting hard to work their way back towards the position at the top of the championship table. which a few years ago seemed to be theirs by right.

: WRITERS OF TODAY: Mr. OSBERT SITWELL reading an extract from ' Discursions '

SOME ten years ago the Sitwell family began consistently and conscientiously to shock the* world of letters with their writings, their sayings and their general pose of contempt for the whole corpus of literature and the writings of any authors but themselves. That congenial attitude they have not yet abandoned, but Mr. Osbert Sitwell , who broadcasts tonight, has won an assured place amongst the writers of the day in spite of it. Listeners will remember Mr. Sitwell's particularly brilliant contributions to the broadcast debate on Opera last month.

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.
