Mr. JAMES JACKSON: Football as a Profession
FEW men could be better qualified than
' Parson ' Jackson to present the viewpoint of the professional footballer in this in-1 cresting symposium. He has been associated with the professional game for fourteen years. During that time lie played for Motherwoll, Aberdeen, and Liverpool. For two and a half years he captained the Liverpool team, only relinquishing that position last year, when he went up to Westminster College, Cambridge, to complete his studies in preparation for entering the Presbyterian Church of England.
WlTHOUT being asked to leave our comfortable Saturday night armchairs, we are again all empanelled as jurymenâ€”and this time, we come up with a jolt against a particularly ticklish case of alleged murder. The full particulars of Rex v. Chilpenny will be found on the previous page. When the insurance clerk, in a car borrowed without permission, gave chase to his runaway wife and her rich lover, did ho deliberately cause a smash, or was it an accident? Hear what counsel for defence and prosecution have to say, follow the summing tip of Mr. Justice Stareleigh (let us hope he has mellowed since the days of Bardell v. Piclnvick)â€”and 'Consider your Verdict.'

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.
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.
