: The Arsenal v. Blackburn Rovers

A Running Commentary on the Semi-final tie of the F.A. Cup Competition. Relayed from the Leicester City Football Ground.
Commentator, Mr George F. Allison.
S.B. from Nottingham.

(Note : Manchester, Leeds-Bradford, Sheffield, and Hull Stations will broadcast a running commentary by Mr F. Stacey Lintott on the second semi-final—Sheffield United v. Huddersfield Town.)
The broadcasting of the semi-final ties of the F.A. Cup will be particularly welcome because the matches are played in neutral areas. Thus, in the match at Leicester, London will be vastly interested in her sole representative, The Arsenal, and Lancashire equally keen to follow the fate of their opponents, Blackburn Rovers.
Two Yorkshire clubs, Sheffield United and Huddersfield Town, meet in the other tie and have to leave their county to play at Manchester. This match, by the way, is regarded in football circles as a foregone conclusion—and therefore the more likely to produce, the inevitable 'Cup surprise'. There have been teams in the past as great as are Huddersfield today, who have been bundled out of the Cup competition in a manner totally incomprehensible. This season in a League match Huddersfield have beaten the Sheffield side by 7-1, and recent history indicates that Huddersfield can beat them when and how they like. Yet these certainties have a habit of mysteriously collapsing, and it is a fact that, by the genius of their captain, Gillespie, Sheffield United won the Cup three years ago with a team inferior to that of today.
The Arsenal are the only club of the four who have never won the Cup, while the Rovers have won it five times. The recent Cup experience of the London team, however, who reached Wembley last April to lose by a goal, should be very valuable.

Eye-witness account of the Oxford v. Cambridge Sports The inter-Varsity sports, which took place at Queen's Club this afternoon, are a great occasion for members of the two older Universities, and one of the most important athletic meetings held in England. From the Varsity teams, in fact, and from their joint offspring, the Achilles Club, are drawn many of the men who represent Great Britain in international contests and at the Olympic Games. This year's results will be described by Mr. H. M. Abrahams, the Cambridge sprinter, who won the hundred metres for Britain at the last games in 1924.

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.
