: Sports Talk ' Cricket in the Seven Seas '

Lt.-Commander R. WOODROOFFE
IT does not fall to the lot of many of us to play cricket in the South Seas, in China, in Africa, at Gibraltar and at Malta, in Egypt, and on small islands off the Greek coast. Few but a sailor could have had the opportunity, and none but a sailor could talk about, it in so breezy and entertaining a way.
Games played in such different quarters of the globe are full of variety. The islands of the Pacific with the native Queen and her court watching the match from the houses of parliament, on the tin roof of which the balls kept bouncing, and with pigs for the after-match feast roasting on the boundary, .Again nearly a thousand miles up the Yangtse River, with all the ground a graveyard, Chinese gentlemen carrying a singing bird in a cage as they take their recreation on the city walls, and files of coolies passing by with merchandise, completely contemptuous of the madness of the cricketers. Again, Commander Woodrooffe will tell of a small town in West Africa where an elephant trampled down the pavilion in the night, and of the craft of some Greeks who put the visiting team in to bat first ' out of courtesv '-but made sure that it was no advantage on that particular pitch.

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.
