: THE CESAREWITCH

Commentaries by Archie Stock on the Devil's Dyke and Raymond Glendenning at the winning post, assisted by race-readers at each point, from the July Course, Newmarket
In spite of seventy-three entries for this year's wartime Cesarewitch-second leg of the autumn double-this famous long-distance autumn handicap will be run as one race, unlike the Cambridgeshire of a fortnight ago, which was run in two classes. Peacetime values are a thing of the past ; this year's race will be a plate of 500 sovs.-425 sovs. to the winner, 50 sovs. to the second, 25 sovs. to the third. It will start on the old course, which will be followed for one mile down to the dip, where the field will take a right-handed turn on to the summer course ... and so to the finish. But the distance will be shortened from
21 miles to 2 miles and 24 yards. Devil's Dyke is near the junction of the two courses.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
