A Running Commentary on the Final of the King's Prize by C'apt. E. H. ROBINSON Relayed from the 1,000 Yards Range. Bisley Camp
THE King's Prize at Bisley is. quite strictly speaking. the ' blue riband ' of the world of marksmanship. It is to rifle-shooting what the Wimbledon Singles Championship is to lawn tennis ; what the Diamonds is to sculling: what the American Cup is to yacht-racing. Bisley brings together marksmen— picked marksmen-from all over the world, and the cream of them compete in the battle royal for the King's Prize. Its winner, one'may be certain, has attained the highest possible excellence of marksmanship. This afternoon the final of the King's Prize will be contested at Bisley. and the first news of the result, with an account of all the preceding events, will be broadcast by Captain E. H. Robinson , late R.A.F., who himself won the King's Prize in 1923.

Directed by ALFRED BONDT
ALTHOUGH Johann Strauss , the younger gave names to most of his dance tunes, very few of them really mean anything, and this is no more descriptive of a night in Venice than of a night anywhere else.
The eldest son of Johann Strauss the elder, he succeeded his father in 1863 as music master of the Court Balls in Vienna. At that time he had already a great reputation as a bandmaster and as composer of light and sparkling music, some of which is clearly destined to take its place among the immortal master-pieces of all time.
The elder Johann was anxious that none of his sons should follow a musical career, and the younger Johann began life as a banker. But, like two of his brothers, who were also destined for other professions, he found the call of music too strong and made it abundantly clear that he had inherited a very large share of the family gifts.

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.
