Weatherman: Peter Walker

: Whoosh!

Rick Jones, Dawn MacDonald, Jonathan Collins invite you to follow them to a place where anything can happen.

Canadian-born Rick Jones has been a great favourite with young viewers of Play School for four years now. Children who now miss Play School because they're at school will be especially delighted to see him every week in Whoosh! 'The main difference,' says Rick, 'is that Play School left children with something to do. Whoosh! leaves them with something to dream about.'

Introduced by FRANK BOUGH

FEATURING Racing ... Motoring ... Gymnastics ... Test Cricket and the Rugby League Cup Semi-Final from Swinton LEEDS v. WIGAN
Commentator, Eddie Waring
Television presentation by Ray Lakeland
Wigan have a happy knack of reaching Wembley. They won the first-ever Challenge Cup final at Wembley back in 1929 by beating Dewsbury, and if they get there again this year it will be for the seventh time in the last eleven seasons.
But they could hardly be confronted by a more formidable hurdle than Leeds. The Yorkghiremen are the present League leaders and will be seeking revenge for their defeat when they met Wigan in the semi-finals two years ago.
Wigan, whose last six Wembley appearances have brought them three wins and three defeats, expect to have two stalwarts in their team — Eric Ash-ton, 33-year-old captain and coach, and Billy Boston, who will be on the right wing.
One Leeds star to watch — the former Rugby Union ace Bev Risman, the League's leading goal-kicker, who will be at full-back.
The final will be at Wembley on May 11 between today's winners and the victors of last week's semi-final between Wake-field and Huddersfield.

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.
