A Running Commentary on the International Rugby Union Football
Match by Captain H. B. T. WAKELAM
Relayed from Twickenham
The match described this afternoon may not prove to be an exhibition ot
Rugby football at its most scientific, but it will probably be an extremely
exciting and hard-fought game. There are at least two reasons. One is that the losing side will suffer the ignominy of holding the ' wooden spoon ' ; the other reason is that this International-the last of the season-is played every year for the Calcutta Cup, a trophy that England holds at present because of her victory last year. The Cup was presented to the Rugby Football Union by the Calcutta Football Club in 1878, and has been keenly contested ever since.

'The Grand National'
F. C. HITCHCOCK , M.C.
Next Friday, at Aintree, is to be run one of the best-known races in the world, for the result of the Grand National is as eagerly awaited in remote corners of the earth as the result of the Derby. Today Captain F. C. Hitchcock , who has trained jumpers himself and is the author of the well-known book on horses and riding, ' Saddle Up ', is to talk about the race and the course and some of the horses that will be competing.
Listeners will hear all about those formidable and celebrated jumps-Becher's Brook and Valentine's ; and what is more important, and the more i extraordinary in view of the size of the obstacles and the frequency of falls, they will learn that no jockey has lost his life in the last twenty-five years and not more than two horses have lost theirs in the last ten years.
The National is for horses of six years old and upwards, all tried jumpers and stayers, for a horse must have finished in the first three in a steeplechase of three miles or upwards, worth £200 to the winner, before he is eligible to compete.

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.
