: 'AT HOME TO SPORTSMEN'

A magazine programme of sports, sports gossip, prospects, and reminiscences
Introduced by R. F. Dunnett
Today's issue of 'At Home to Sportsmen' has an all-Scottish i flavour. R. F. Dunnett , who comperes it, is well known to listeners for his commentaries on boxing and; football, as well as for his wartime accounts of the Canadians arriving' and other exciting events north of the Border.
Andrew Wemyss , who will also be at the microphone, is a favourite broadcaster who is now in the Army.
Although blinded in one eye in the last war, Wemyss recovered sufficiently to win International caps at Rugby and become an outstanding sports figure in Scotland.
On Wednesday Scotland played the Army, and it is hoped that some outstanding player in this match will come to the microphone, and also, if possible, a member of the Scottish Cup Final teams.

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.
