: Golfers in Action: 1

Bernard Darwin interviews C. A. Whitcombe.
This is the first of a new series of golfing broadcasts in which Bernard Darwin, the well-known amateur golfer and writer on golf, will introduce famous professionals. The 'pros' will demonstrate a variety of shots on the miniature golf links in Alexandra Park.
The first professional to appear in this series, C.A. Whitcombe of Crews Hill Golf Club, is the second of the remarkable trio of golfer brothers. He has won the West of England Professional Championship three times, the Northern Professional Championship once, the News of the World Tournament twice, was third in the Open Championship in 1935, and has played for Great Britain on a number of occasions.

: St. David's Day: Clara Novello-Davies's Royal Welsh Ladies Choir

This famous choir, which is to give a special St. David's Day programme, has won the highest honours at the World Fair in Chicago and the Paris Exhibition. As far back as 1894, when Queen Victoria was on the throne, it was taken under royal patronage. The singers usually perform in traditional Welsh costume.
Its founder and conductor, Madame Clara Novello-Davies, is now seventy-five years of age. She has specialised for many years in voice-building and breath control, and has written several books on these subjects. And like her son, Ivor Novello, she has composed a good deal of music.

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.
