Challenge Match at Leicester Square Hall, London
Walter Donaldson (World Snooker Champion 1946-7, 1949-50)
Albert Brown (World Snooker semi-finalist, 1951-52)
This match should be a particularly interesting one, for it is something of a return contest: Donaldson beat Brown by the slender margin of one frame in the semi-final of this year's World Match Play Championship.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

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.
