: An Eye-witness account by Bernard Darwin of the First Day's Play in the Walker Cup Match

EXACTLY what the Walker Cup is must be known to all golfers, but it is certainly not known to a large number of listeners who take a catholic interest in all news on the air.
The Walker Cup, then, is to amateur golfers what the better-known Ryder Cup is to professionals. It is played for every two years between British and American amateur golfers, and alternately with the Ryder Cup. This year it is to be competed for at St. Andrews ; in two years' time the British team will have to cross the Atlantic, and it will be 1938 before it is played for in Britain again.
The team is selected by the Royal and Ancient Club of St. Andrews, and consists of ten members. Among those playing today are Roger Wethered, the Hon. Michael Scott (winner of the Amateur Championship last 'year and today's; captain), H. G. Bentley , Cyril Tolley and Jack McLean.
Today foursomes are to be played, and singles tomorrow. This evening and again tomorrow at 9.12 (or 21.12) Bernard Darwin will describe the day's play.
An article on the history of the Walker Cup, by Peter Lawless (' Vagrant' of The Morning Post), will be found on page 341.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
