: ASSOCIATION FOOTBALL

Luton Town v. Coventry City
A commentary during the second half of the Regional League Competition match, by Raymond Glendenning , from the Town Ground,
Luton
Raymond Glendenning, who gave the commentaries on this year's Cambridgeshire and Cesarewitch, was a radio actor at the Cardiff Station of the BBC for five years before he joined the staff in 1932 as an announcer. In 1935 he was transferred to Belfast as Outside Broadcasts assistant and so came into touch with sport on the air. In due course he was giving fluent commentaries on water-polo, point-to-points, steeplechasing and flat racing. Badminton, table-tennis, darts, lawn tennis, and Association football.
Among his big sports commentaries have been: the R.A.C. Tourist
Trophy Race, 1936 (Ulster) and 1937 (Donington), the Ulster Grand Prix Motor Cycle Race, 1936, 1937, and 1939, the 'North West 200' Motor Cycle Race, 1938 and 1939, the Ulster Derby, 1938 and 1939, the first Ulster Grand National, 1939, and the Cesarewitch, 1938, apart from this year's big back-end handicaps already mentioned.
As to Association football, he gave no fewer than twenty commentaries on matches in the Irish League throughout the season 1938-39, approximately one a fortnight, also several Internationals.

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.
