10-' The Story of Buddha '
RHODA POWER
Last week you were told something about the great Indian teacher Gautama, called the Buddha, who lived from about 560 to 480 B.C., and today in a dramatic interlude you are to hear about his life. It will be all the more interesting if you remember that the religion he taught has millions of followers in our own day.

: WALTER NEUSEL versus LEN HARVEY

A Running Commentary on the International Heavy-weight Contest by LIONEL SECCOMBE
Relayed from Wembley
(Copyright. See notice on page 658)
Tonight is the opening night of a series of boxing events at the Empire Pool and Sports Arena, Wembley
Tonight's contest will appeal to a wide circle of enthusiasts. Len Harvey has become something of an enigma since he first entered the heavyweight division and captured its crown. This fight, the first in which he has taken part for some considerable time, will give him his chance to show how far he has recovered the form that took him to the top. In his long career Harvey has given abundant proof of his boxing skill, his ring generalship, and his capacity for planning his fights, and in experience he has few rivals.
As for his opponent, Walter Neusel has already many friends amongst boxing patrons in this country. This tall, fair-haired young German has shown us his quality in more than one contest in London, and he is always an interesting fighter, though, like Harvey, he has not always shown consistent form. For him, too, this match provides an opportunity for a come-back, as he is eager to avenge his recent defeat in Germany by Max Schmelling , formerly champion of the world.
There will be no doubt, therefore, that the contest will be keenly fought and Lionel Seccombe is likely to have plenty of action to describe. Listeners will welcome the chance to hear one of his ringside commentaries again.
All Nationals, except Droitwich, will closdown at 11.15

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.
