' The Boat Race-a Conflict of Styles '
G. 0. NICKALLS
The point about the Boat Race this year is that for the first time one of the crews will admittedly be rowing in the style that has been made famous by Jesus College , Cambridge, and the other will be rowing in the old orthodox style. Hitherto both crews have rowed orthodox. The situation is made even more interesting by the fact that Mr. Peter Haig Thomas , who has coached Cambridge to victory for the last eleven years, has left them this year because they want to row in the Fairbairn style (that is the. Jesus style), and is, coaching Oxford instead.
G. 0. Nickalls, who is giving the talk, is peculiarly well qualified to discuss the two styles. since he has rowed in both styles with first-class crews.

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.
