A Running Commentary on the match between White City and Harringay by R. T. BOWMAN
From White City Stadium
(Copyright. See notice on page 32)
If for no other reason, this broadcast should be notable because it is the first time that the American national game has been broadcast by the BBC. The purpose of this twenty minutes is not so much to follow the progress of the match between Harringay and White City as to give listeners the general ' atmosphere ' of baseball.
The commentator is R. T. Bowman , a Canadian, who will be remembered for several previous sporting broadcasts, notably his running commentary on the last period of the Ice Hockey contests in the Olympic Games from Garmisch in February last. Besides being an expert on ice hockey, he played both baseball and cricket in Canada before he came to this country two years ago. An article by him, entitled ' Baseball Stories ', will be found on page I I.

: Sports Talk ' Polo '

In the past the playing of polo in England has been the privilege of the few. And until recent years it was the interest of the few. Nowadays the position is changed : thousands of people who are not rich can afford to ride, and it is the ambition of nearly every keen rider to handle a polo stick. This talk is of particular interest at the moment for this week the United States team, captained by R. E. Strawbridge , is in England preparing for the Westchester Cup contests. Three matches will be played, on June 10, 13, and 20, at Hurlingham Club, London. Offered for competition in 1886, the Cup has been won seven times by America, and four times by England. Until this year the matches have always been played in the country of the holders.

Alec Rowley 's ' The Walking Tune and Marching Tune' is a characteristic, well-orchestrated composition, the title of which adequately describes the music. The ' Hornpipe from a suite called ' Scenes of Old England', is by Percy Godfrey , a former music master of King's School, Canterbury. who has written many clever and original works.
Another new work is Gilbert Vinter 's
Suite, ' Lincoln Green '. The composer is a bassoon player in the BBC Military Band, was formerly a choir boy at Lincoln Cathedral under the late Dr. G. J. Bennett ; then a student at Kneller Hall , and later he won a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music, where he studied composition under Corder and bassoon under Richard Newton. ' Lincoln Green ' consists of three short sketches of Robin Hood 's ' Merrie Men '.

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.
