: Performing Alsatians

Miss B. Kelly and Mr. M. Snapper bring their team of jumping Alsatians to the camera.
Introduced by Cecil Lewis.

This team consists of four dogs, who possess what must be truly called canine genius. Viewers will see them jump a fence and do the usual hoop stunts. Two of them, Coona and Mikeve, are particularly clever: the former can recognise the letters of the alphabet and the latter would be the envy of an Olympic games athlete - he can jump nine feet six inches high and a length of thirty feet.


Trainer: Miss B. Kelly
Trainer: Mr. M. Snapper
Presenter: Cecil Lewis

: Show Pony Jumping

Major Faudel-Phillips gives a demonstration of Show Pony Jumping.
Introduced by Cecil Lewis.

Show pony jumping at its best is a beautiful sight, and this afternoon viewers will see three or four clever child riders. Major Faudel-Phillips has broadcast in the Children's Hour, and listeners will remember his expert commentaries during the last three years at the Olympia Horse Show.

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.
