: A HAND AT BRIDGE

BY co-operation between the B.B.C. and two national newspapers it was possible last spring to play and expound several hands in such a way that bridge-players, from Aberdeen to Plymouth, were able to take part in the same game simultaneously, to hear it discussed, and to read a review the following day. It was a development new to British broadcasting, and an aid to the game of thousands of keen players.
In tonight's broadcast, which is again undertaken by arrangement between the B.B.C., the Evening Standard, and Daily Express, the following players are taking part :-
The Marchioness of Winchester, a keen student and player of auction bridge.
Mr. A. E. Manning Foster. Major H. S. Browning.
Mr. S. B. Harris , of the Evening Standard.
The last three are all known as regular writers on the game.
These four will be dealt a hand which will present fascinating problems in bidding and in play. To ensure that it shall contain striking features and to allow readers preliminary study—invaluable to the close follower of the broadcast — the deal has been made in advance, and is printed below.
To derive the maximum benefit, listeners are urged not to rcqd it at once, but to make up tables of four and play the hand for themselves ' in the dark." A fifth person should be asked to make the deal so that each player may know only his own hand.
During the broadcast listeners, sitting round the table, should join in the play enrd by card, and compare their conclusions with those of the players at 2LO. Comment from the studio immediately afterwards and a review of the play in the' Daily Express and the Evening Standard next day will drive home the lessons of the hand. The deal is as follows :-








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.
