: THE OXFORD v. CAMBRIDGE RELAY RACES

A Running Commentary on the Inter-'Varsity
Contest by Mr. H. M. ABRAHAMS
Relayed from Oxford
An article by Mr. Abrahams and a plan of the track will be found on page 453.
RELAY races are quite a modem vogue, but they become more popular every year.
A good relay race, with a well-contested finish, can provide a sort of cumulative thrill that can never come from single races of the kind that make up the programme of, for instance, the ordinarv 'Varsity Sports. This afternoon's meeting at the IffleyRoad (they are held here and at Fenner's in alternate years) will be described by Mr. Harold Abrahams , the Olympic sprint title-holder, who was himself until a few years ago a pillar of the Cambridge relay teams.

A T Christmas time, Smith field Market really
A comes into its own. Despite all the attacks of foreign fashions, the Englishman isstill at heart carnivorous, and at this season he reverts to type.

In preparation for the crisis, a fat-stock show is held every year, when the future diner can, if Ire likes, see his Christmas dinner in its natural state. Mr. Haddon, who will talk about Christmas preparations at Smithfield, is editor of Smithfield's own paper—The Farmer and Stockbreeder.

: OLD FAVOURITES

THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOHN ANSELL
ERIC MARSHALL (Baritone)
THE Opera The Prophet deals with the Anabaptists, who made a great commotion in Europe in the early part of the sixteenth century. John of Leyden, the so-called Prophet of the sect, was crowned at Münster Cathedral, and this March, in the Opera of Meyerbeer, accompanies the ceremony.
BERLIOZ was rather severe on Herold, who, he declared, lacked a style of his own. He dismissed Zampa as not real French, German, or Italian music—only ' Parisian music.'
The favourite Overture to Zampa is made out of tunes from the Opera, rather loosely strung together.

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.
