Racing: from the Trainer's Point of View'
JACK JARVIS
Here is a great opportunity for lovers of racing who are to hear a Sports Talk by one of the most successful trainers in England-Jack Jarvis , third in the list of winning trainers last year. He was born at Newmarket in 1887, the son of William Jarvis , who trained Cyllene, sire of four Derby winners. Jack Jai-vis 's two brothers are W. R. Jarvis , trainer, to His Majesty the King, and B. E. Jarvis. who trained Papyrus, winner of the Derby.
As a jockey he had considerable success, riding many winners, including Hackler's Pride, winner of the' Cambridgeshire in 1903, which was one of the biggest coups ever brought off on the Turf.
He started training in the spring of 1914, but closed down owing to the War and joined the Army. After the War he started at Park Lodge, and in 1922 he took over the late Lord Rosebery's horses and the following year won for him the Two Thousand Guineas with Ellangowan, and in 1924 the One Thousand with Plack. For the present Earl he won the St. Leger with Sandwich, and the Eclipse with Miracle. He has at present the largest string of horses in Newmarket.

: 'Weather Forecast'

Written by R. A. WATSON WATT and JOHN SALT
Produced by JOHN SALT
In the Bible, in Shakespeare, in German, French, and Italian proverb the weather is told by the sky. From earliest times man's interest has centred in foretelling the weather because his crops and even his life depend on it.
Men have seen how the wasps collect in the evening, and what sort of winter follows after ; how the flocks of cranes come early if the winter is to be early, too; how the dog scratches when rain is coming, and when a tempest is on the way how crabs run out of the sea. Insect and bird and beast were the first barometers.
In this imaginative feature programme, radio technique will not only show listeners a sort of saga of man's interest in the weather and his increasing skill at forecasting it, but will convey the average man's joy in the sunshine and depression in the rain..... But there are. those who, because of their callings, are conversely affected.... Man's cunning devised instruments of incredible accuracy, and made him so clever that today he can even manufacture the weather.
The weather up to date. Modern weather maps and weather forecasts that flash in code all over the world..... And, finally, a little interlude about some people who would glide, but have to be content with dancing because of the rain.
A gale warning..... But that will be followed up in another broadcast next week.

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.
