: FROM CRICKET TO THE CARIBBEAN

A conversation between
Learie Constantine and Sir Hilary Blood
Learie Constantine , internationally famous as a cricketer, who lived in this country for more than twenty years, is now Minister of Transport in the Government of Trinidad, his native home. He returned to England for a visit this summer a few days before Sir Hilary Blood left to undertake work on the constitution of British Honduras.
Sir Hilary spent a great part of his
Colonial Service in the British West Indies, being at one time Governor of Barbados. He is a devoted cricket fan and in this conversation, recorded during the brief period when they were both in England, the speakers range over two subjects mutually absorbing to them.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
