This scene comprises an opening talk on the history and value of the famous Isle of Man Races.
Following immediately will be a descriptive Fantasia of the Senior Race, including the start of the first man, happenings during the race and the winner passing the Grand Stand. Announcements regarding the incidents of the race will be made by the Clerk of the Course during its progress.
Music will be played during the Scene by THE STATION ORCHESTRA, including
"The King" (on arrival of the Governor of the Isle of Man), and "See the Conquering Hero Comes" (as the Winner passes the Grand Stand).
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
