: THE BOAT RACE

Putney to Mortlake
Oxford challenges Cambridge
Commentary by John Snagge , assisted by G. D. Clapperton and Paul Massey , former Oxford and Cambridge Blues respectively, from a launch following the race
The increase in the cost of staging the Boat Race confronts both Boat Clubs today with a serious problem. Unlike most sporting events, no gate can be charged, and in 1947 an Official Souvenir Programme was introduced. The revenue from this programme is of great importance to both clubs This year's programme is of special significance because it is a historic souvenir of the one hundredth race. It has 40 pages with) a large number of illustrations spanning the years since the first race in 1829, and contains several articles, group photographs, caricatures, pen-pictures and facsimile signatures of the crews. The statistical information includes the results of all previous races. Copies can be obtained 'price Is. 2d., poM paid) from Programme Publications, 19 Clarges Street, London,

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.
