: The Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy Motor Race

Over the Ards Circuit, near Belfast
A Running Commentary by JOHN T. SUTTHERY at the Grand Stand
JOHN SNAGGE at Newtownards and HENRY McMULLAN at Comber
(From Northern Ireland)
With its thirty-seven entries, the Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy Race promises this year to be as exciting as any struggle in the history of the event.
Commentators will be stationed at three points on the twelve and a half miles of the Ards Circuit: John T. Sutthery snugly stowed in a box in a pit in front of the Grand Stand, John Snagge overlooking the celebrated Newtownards Town Hall Corner, and Henry McMullan perched high above the heads of the spectators in Comber Square, to describe the cornering at the difficult right angle leading into the town.
A short article on this year's contest well be found on page 14.

' Women and Cricket'
MARJORIE POLLARD
Dr. Johnson once likened a woman's preaching to a dog's walking on its hind legs. ' It is not done well, but you are surprised to find it done at all.' Probably the majority of men feel much the same about women's cricket. And it is this male delusion that Miss Pollard, who is the editor of Women's Cricket, proposes to demolish this evening. She will come to the microphone armed with facts, figures, and anecdotes. She will tell you something of the history of the W.C.A.—we leave the Watsons among our readers to deduce the meaning of those initials-an Association that now includes no fewer than a hundred clubs, with a hundred affiliated schools, and five hundred individual members. And (this is likely to be the heaviest blow of all to the conservative male) she will tell listeners of the forthcoming ' Women's Tests '. For the W.C.A. arranges tours in Australia, and in 1937 an Australian women's team is coming to England and two three-day ' Test Matches' have been arranged at Northampton and the Oval.

Symphonic Poem, Don Juan
Richard Strauss
' Don Juan ' was the first of Strauss's tone poems that showed his genius. The music is based on the poem by Lenau, describing the adventures of Don Juan in his search for his ideal. There are four principal themes heard at the outset, all glowing with the youthful ardour of the quest. The second section of the poem, which is quoted in the score, tells of disillusionment. The closing section represents Don Juan 's death and his despair in realising that life has lost its charm for him, that nothing is left but ' the cold and dark ash-strewn hearth '.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
