International Swimming from Coventry: Great Britain v. Canada

This international is a vital part of the pre-Olympics build-up for both countries. Each event will be contested by one swimmer from each country-but Britain will also have a number of other Olympic hopefuls taking part, who will have the chance to prove they can outswim the 'official' competitors.
Among the British swimmers to watch out for is one established star-Scotland's Bobby McGregor, world 110 yds. free-style record-holder, and three names newer to headline-making.
They are Ray Terrell, a fifteen-year-old from Southampton who recently smashed the British 220 yds. individual medley record; seventeen-year-old Martyn Woodroffe, a Welsh boy who has made tremendous progress in the butterfly events; and the Isle of Man wonder girl, fifteen-year-old Alex Jackson, who has twice equalled Diana Wilkinson's British record for the 110 yds. free-style.
Canada's Marion Lay is likely to be the toughest opposition young Alex has yet encountered and could well spur the British girl to a record time.
Canada will also have Elaine Tanner, who, as a fourteen-year-old, won the Amateur Swimming Association's 110 yds. butterfly title at Blackpool in 1965. Later Elaine switched to backstroke and held the world records at 100 metres and 200 metres - titles she subsequently lost to South Africa's Karen Muir and which she is out to regain.

: Dance Date: The British Open Championship

The highlights of this major international event in the world of professional dancing from the Empress Ballroom Blackpool.

This championship is the climax to Blackpool's Dance Festival week. It has a truly international flavour with competitors coming from as far afield as Japan and the United States. They are judged over four dances-the waltz, foxtrot, quickstep, and tango.
The spectators are almost as international in make-up as the competitors, and every seat and standing space in the ballroom has been booked for months.


Music: Charles Barlow
Compere: Peter Wheeler

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.
