A Commentary on the Athletic Meeting by Mr. H. M. ABRAHAMS
Relayed from Fenner's, Cambridge
With Interludes by the WIRELESS
MTLITARY BAND with FRANK Foxon (Baritone) and the B.B.C. DANCE ORCHESTRA
Personally conducted by JACK PAYNE
THIS afternoon's athletic meeting has more interest than the usual contest between a University and an outside club. Since the war Cambridge has supplied an unusually high proportion of athletes to the British Olympic teams, and Fenner's is now recognized as one of the most likely places to which to look for cracks capable of holding their own in the best company the world can provide.
So this year the meeting between the Varsity and the Amateur Athletic Association has been arranged as a sort of Olympic test. Cambridge are to be strengthened by the addition of some of the star products of recent years, and their team will include such famous athletes as H. B. Stallard , the miler and half-miler, D. G. A. Lowe, who has already run for Great Britain at Colombes, C. T. van Geyzel, the high jumper from Ceylon, and those two fine hurdlers, Lord Burghley and G. C. Weightmann-Smith . The encounter between these cracks and the stiong team brought down by the A.A.A. should make a most thrilling afternoon's sport, which listeners will hear described by Mr. H. M. Abrahams, himself an old Cambridge runner, and a former victor in the Olympic Game?, an article by whom on this afternoon's meeting will be found on page 425.

BRAHMS' PIANO WORKS
Played by HOWARD JONES
Intermezzo in E Minor (Op. 119, No. 2)
Rhapsody in E Flat (Op. 119, No. 4)
IN the first piece we admire the resource which transforms the opening theme, with its quietly urgent rhythm, into a middle-section tune in the style of an old German dance of the waltz persuasion.
The E Flat Rhapsody is the last solo pianoforte piece Brahms wrote. The magnificent energy and breadth of the march-like opening and the delightful airy grace of the middle section have made it a great favourite.
Its variety of resource is stimulating, and the minor-key ending comes as a curious and powerful stroke of exhilarating effect.

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.
