Arranged by Major A. W. Lupton. Captain of the YORKSHIRE Crickkt Club
Announced by JOHN HENRY
THE traditional rivalry of the Roses-so sanguinary four and a half centuries ago. and so intense, though friendly, today — now finds its keenest expression in the Lancashire-and-Yorkshire cricket match at Whitsuntide. This afternoon the match was broadcast ; tonight the counties will have a chance to show what they can do in other spheres. Judging from the array of talent on both sides, it is not improbable that this evening's contest will end in a draw.

EARLIER this evening Yorkshire had its eluuwe to show whether it could do as well over the microphone as it always does on the ('riekct,field. As the visitors. Major Lupton's nide had the rather doubtful honour of going in first, and for once Major Green and his merry men had no chance to keep down the score. But now comes their innings, and on paper their team seems strong enough. One thing is certain — whatever the result may be, the crowd will have a fine evening's sport.

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.
