: THE ST. LEGER

A Running Commentary by R. C. LYLE Relayed from Town Moor Racecourse, Doncaster
(Copyright. See notice on page 645)
For the eighth year in succession; a running commentary on the race for the St. Leger Stakes is relayed from Town Moor, Doncaster. The course has been equipped with a public address system, and with loudspeakers at various points. This equipment is used by the Course Executive to give racegoers a start-to-finish description of every race. The commentator will have the use of the observation box on the roof of the grand stand, normally used by the official commentator for the course.
Certain innovations in the saddling paddock will displace some of the existing buildings, and these are now being rebuilt alongside the Great North Road.
The full scheme includes the diversion of. the road adjoining the racecourse, and the inclusion of a large area at the back of the stand. A considerable amount of building will be required, including a new luncheon room, care-taker's house, turnstile building, etc. In front of the enclosures, behind the stands, there will be a new road 100 feet wide, which will make the race traffic easier to handle.

: THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND

Conducted by CHARLES LEGGETT
PATRICIA ROSSBOROUGH
(pianoforte)
Patricia Rossborough has had a varied career which began (not so very long ago) in her student days. Quite early she made piano playing her profession, and, most unusually, decided to become proficient as a player of both classical and jazz music. But it is the way she has applied her gift to the jazz side of her reportory that has made her so successful and popular as a broadcaster. Listeners by now know with what skill and imagination she will seize a tune and metamorphose it into something brilliant and musically interesting. This idea, ' Tunes of the Moment is her own. She takes five topically popular tunes, five which every listener knows well, and develops them very cleverly into a kind of concert fantasia. The idea appears to be a fascinating one-Miss Rossborough will give proof that it actually is so.

Have you ever considered how much depends on your signing on the dotted line ? Almost everything one does-from birth onwards is governed by signatures : birth certificates, cheques, wireless licences, mortgages, wills, and season tickets for the railway. Even if you want a life afloat, you have to sign on the dotted line,' as you will hear in this novel broadcast, the special incidental music to which is by George Barker , a well-known broadcaster, who wrote the score for Playing the Game.

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.

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.
