: Sports Talk: Mr. Joe Davis: Billiards as a Profession

Joe Davis won the Professional Snooker Championship of 1932, beating Clark McConachy; and, during the match, made the record snooker break of 109, potting thirty-two consecutive balls. He won the Championship again this year, beating Willie Smith. He is at present playing exhibition games round London. In his talk tonight, Joe Davis will touch on billiards as a profession, on the various conditions governing the game, and how he came into it. As he also won the Professional Billiards Championship last year, enthusiasts can look forward to a fascinating quarter of an hour with the Gordon Richards of the cue.

Mr. THOMAS GRANT: 'The Sinking of the Sontay'
Mr. Thomas Grant is one of three famous brothers, all of them photographers of long standing on The Daily Mirror. It has been said of him that he is the world's most travelled photographer. Among many of his eventful journeys was that to Japan in 1912, when the Mikado became seriously ill. Upon the Emperor's death, Mr. Grant showed his amazing resourcefulness. No one was permitted to take photographs of the funeral except the Court photographer; Mr. Grant promptly arranged to become his assistant. The funeral procession, in accordance with custom, took place after dark, and, though he had to be in position twelve hours beforehand, he was compelled to wear evening clothes and a silk hat. But he got his photographs. Tonight he tells listeners of his thrilling experience on board the French troopship, Sontay, when she was sunk during the War. He had been official photographer with the Allied Forces in Salonica, and was on his way home. She was torpedoed, and, actually only four minutes elapsed before she went to the bottom, yet, again, he got his photographs. He tells a gripping story of the French captain who, before going down with his ship, climbed to the highest point of the stern, and, waving his cap, cried defiantly: ' Vive la France' !

: In Town Tonight

A Topical Supplement of the Week's Programmes
The second of the new Saturday 'Stop Press' programmes, featuring items of topical interest which have come to hand too late for inclusion in the printed programmes of the Press or The Radio Times. "In Town Tonight" has been started experimentally as a weekly framework for the various 'surprise items' which have been hitherto scattered about the programmes, often at times inconvenient to the ordinary listener.

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.
