' 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.

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.
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.
