KENSINGTON Moir : ' Motor Racing from the Pit Manager's Point of View '
Up to now all the speakers on motor r: cing have been well-known drivers, such as Sir Malcolm Campbell , S. C. H. Davis , Earl Howe. But this evening listeners are to have a new angle on the sport; they are to hear what it is like to be waiting in the pit of a racing track for the next casualty whilst a race is going on. The suspense is terrific, and when the manager and his mechanics are called on they have to work against time to save a race just as a surgeon must to save a life during an operation. One thinks of the leisurely remedy applied to an ordinary breakdown on the road. But the breakdown to be adjusted during * race, the car to be refuelled, the tyre to be changed-these things must be done in seconds.
Mr. Kensington Moir has been in charge of pits at Brooklands and on all the big tracks in Europe.

Elsie and Doris Walters received more letters of congratulation for their broadcast in Christmas Party than they have ever had before.
Al and Bob Harvey are amongst
Canada's most successful broadcasters.
Have you heard about Clapham's dog ? It slipped its collar one day whilst he was working out some business on the way to St. George's Hall, and he walked in trailing a lead with no dog attached to it. Dwyer found it in the kitchen at Broadcasting House.
Charles Austin , of' Parker P.C.' fame, is to give his first broadcast since he was Chairman of Old-time Music Halls, and Phyllis Robins her first in a Variety programme since Radiolympia. A. C. Astor was the first ventriloquist on the air.

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.
