: Sports Talk: Football: Playing for a French League Team: Alex Cheyne

It is comparatively rare for an English professional football player to sign on with a French team and play football in France. But it was the experience of Alex Cheyne.
Born at Glasgow, he played for Shettleston as a junior and then went up to Aberdeen. Then Chelsea secured him, and after a season or two with them he was tempted away by 'The Sporting Club de Nimes' to play for their first team and to coach their second. He stayed a year or two, but now he is back again with Chelsea.
Whilst with the Nimes Club he travelled a good deal, playing matches in Paris and Lille, in the south of France, and even one at Bilbao in Spain against an Italian team. He has some amusing stories to tell about the difference between League football on the Continent and in England. He is glad to be back, but he had a good time out in France, a great many laughs, and he learnt the language.

The presence of Claude Dampier in a programme is a guarantee of laughter. He has toured the world with his act, and he had a big name in the Dominions before he came into prominence over here.
Rich and Silva return to the air for the first time since their broadcast in Variety in June. Vic Oliver is an American comedian on his fourth visit here, and just off home again. Whilst Will Fyffe will present the ever-popular brand of Scottish humour. He has just finished a film, Rolling Home, and has received a big offer to make one in Hollywood.
Trevor Watkins has not broadcast in a Variety programme for about two years. He has been playing in Frederica and The Dubarry (on tour with Binnie Hale ). This summer he scored a big hit with an act that he wrote himself, called ' Schubert Fantasy'.

The American composers in this programme range from Stephen Foster -who wrote most of his songs, including Old Folks at Home, nearly a hundred years ago-right up to Gershwin, Groft, and Savino, some of those who are engaged in livening up New York today and the rest of the world the day after. In between is Sousa, who, for popularity, could in his time have given points to most of the others in this programme.

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.
