: Children's Television: Children's Ice Time

Outside broadcast cameras visit the Westover Ice Rink in Bournemouth to watch children learning to skate and working for proficiency tests.
Commentator, John Neal General Manager of the Rink and organiser of the children's classes

These classes aim to provide children up to the age of sixteen with a grounding in the necessary rudiments of skating. The pupils can enter for three graded proficiency tests, for which they are awarded certificates, and when they have obtained these they are ready to go ahead with preparation for the more difficult national tests.
Mr. Neal has found that children learn much better and more quickly en masse than with individual tuition.
Naturally they do not all learn at the same rate, some taking much longer than others to get balance and coordination, but generally speaking the younger the child the quicker he or she learns, and the classes usually include several three- and four-year-olds.

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.
