: The King's Cup Air Race

(Held under the competition rules of the Royal Aero Club)
A Running Commentary by Squadron-Leader Helmore, relayed from HESTON AIR PARK, HOUNSLOW
The race starts at 7.0 a.m. and is limited to bona-fide civil aircraft entirely constructed in the British Empire which can attain a speed of at least one hundred miles an hour. All the handicap allowances are made at the start at Heston.
The competitors subsequently pass through five control points at each of which each machine must wait forty minutes—Norwich (106 miles), Leeds (385. miles), Hooton (566 miles), Heston (731 miles), Bristol (888 miles). The finish is back at Heston again (982 miles) Our commentary will be given at the fourth control point, when competitors are again at Heston.
The full route is as follows:
Heston (Start) ; Leicester (86 miles) ; Norwich (Control pt. 196 m.); .Nottingham (299 m.); Brough (358 m.) ; Leeds (Control pt. 385 m.) ; Birmingham (476 m.) ; Woodford (534 m.) ; Hooton (Control pt. 566 m.) ; Heston (Control pt. 731 m.) ; Shoreham (777 m.) ; Hamble (821 m.) ; Bristol (Control pt. 888 m.); Heston (Finish 982 m.)

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.
