: Sports Talk

' The Mechanics of Motor Racing'
P. E. THOMAS
In this vivid and exciting talk, P. E. Thomas , who is personal mechanic to I'arl Howe, is to describe some of his interesting experiences and hairbreadth escapes.
The mere spectator, eyes set on the cars that are still in the running, hardly realises the difficulties of the mechanics attending to the car that has broken down.
Wheels, tyres, brake drums so hot that nobody can touch them without being burnt, hands covered in oil, and not a split second to spare unless all is to be lost.
Thomas has been passenger mechanic to Lord Howe as well as personal mechanic. He will describe a narrow escape they had In the Ulster T.T. in i ()28 ; a breakdown in a Double Twelve Race at Brooklands; the Dublin Grand Prix of 1030, during which he and Lord Howe put in thirty-five nations of petrol in thirty-nine seconds ; a nasty crash in the Italian Mille Miglia when Lotd Howe was knocked unconscious.
Some listeners may remember that a year ago a Sports Talk was given by Kensington Moir on motor racing from the pitman's point of view. He then described' a T.T. race in Belfast in which Lord Howe was driving a Talbot, and Moir was looking after their team.
Towards the end of the race a wheel had to be changed. One of the mechanics to do it in the astonishingly short time of a little over twenty-two seconds was Thomas, who is giving the talk this evening.

THE B.B.C. VARIETY ORCHESTRA
Directed by KNEALE KELLEY
In keeping with the second great Bank Holiday week-end of the year, Music-Hall presents a gala programme.
Names that singly could pack most music-halls in the country are concentrated here in an all-star bill.
For the third time since he left the BBC Dance Orchestra, Les Allen returns to the medium that made his name... In the recent controversy on the Listeners' Letter page 'Order of Merit' it was proved that absence makes the heart grow fonder, for Les Allen retains his great popularity though no longer regularly on the air.
The Western Brothers with their 'Good evening, cads' wilt make laughter in St. George's Hall again; and Marconi-House-Savoy-Hill Tommy Handley is to revive by request the irresistibly funny sketch he produced on the air in December, 1932. Next week, by the way. he is" to broadcast in ' The White Coons '.
Bertha Wilmott. of ' Old Music-Hall' fame; 'Bunch' Keys who has proved the incomparable revue artist he is every month this year ; Mabel Constanduros. ———What names they are!
And suddenly one pauses at a name as familiar as any in the theatre and on the screen, and wonders why on earth Gordon Harker has not broadcast before.
A Buggins sketch ; a new character the Lodger, and Gordon Harker in the role. Listeners to Music-Hall are to sit down to a Whitsun feast.

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.
