: 'THE KING'S PRIZE'

A Running Commentary by Capt. E. H. ROBINSON on the final stage of the Competition for the King's Prize
Relayed from Bisley Ranges
(Copyright. See notice on page 94)
The King's Prize of E250, a gold medal, and gold badge is the rifleman's championship of the Empire. It is shot for in three stages. The first stage, for which between a thousand and twelve hundred serving and ex-service men of H.M. Forces enter, consists of seven shots at 200, seven shots at 500, and seven shots at 600 yards. The leading 300 pass on to the second stage. This is at 300, 500 and 600 yards, ten shots being fired at each distance. The leading hundred in ' The King's Hundred ' shoot the final stage this afternoon, at 900 and 1,000 yards. Fifteen shots are fired at each range, a most searching test of marksmanship. The running commentary catches up with the contest soon after firing has commenced at 1,000 yards, and listeners can follow the fortunes of the leading marksmen of the Empire.

G.C.V.O. : ' St. Simon-A Famous Race-horse'
Memories of St. Simon, one of the outstanding horses in Turf history, will be recalled in this talk by the Duke of Portland. It is exactly fifty years since St. Simon won his first race at Good- wood, and the owner's account of his career, both as race-horse and sire, should be a fascinating one, even to those only remotely interested in horse-

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.

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.
