: Saturday Off

The First Test Match—Lord's
Lawn Tennis Championships,
Wimbledon
R.A.F. Air Pageant, Hendon
Cycling Championships, Herne Hilt
This afternoon we are taking listeners to some of the outdoor events that are happening in and around London
Here are some of the times of which you can be fairly certain :
3.0-3.10 Cricket from Lord's-First
Test Match
3.10-3.20 Hendon Air Pageant
3.50-4.5 Back to Hendon
4.5-4.10 One Mile Tandem National
Championship-Herne Hill
4.10-4.20 Hendon Air Pageant
4.25-4.35 Cricket-Lord's
4.50-5.O Bsck to Herne Hill, for the Start of the 50-mile Tandem Paced National Championship
At any time even during the Dance Music from 5.15 to 6.0 we may go over to Wimbledon or Lord's
This is a grand afternoon for sport. Who can broadcast a running commentary on cricket better than Howard Marshall , who is to describe the play in the first Test Match at Lord's ? Who can broadcast a running commentary on the Hendon Air Pageant better than Wing-Commander W. Hel morc, who described the Fly Past at Duxford on the occasion of King George's Jubilee and has described every Hendon Air Pageant that has been broadcast ? Then Colonel Brand and Captain Wakelam are unsurpassed at describing the lawn tennis championships at Wimbledon. And finally, an expert is to describe the cycling championships at Herne Hill.

' Swimming Championship, 1936'
A. J. PERRING
Last year our National Swimming Championships, organised by the Amateur Swimming Association, were centralised for the first time and were swum for at Blackpool under the auspices of the Northern Counties' Amateur Swimming Association. This year they are to be held at the Empire Pool, Wembley, under the auspices of the Southern Counties' Amateur Swimming Association, and will be swum for next week from Wednesday, July 1, to Saturday, July 4. Next year they will be held in one or other of the remaining three districts-Midland, West, and North-East. They are of the utmost importance to our swimming world because through them we shall be choosing our Olympic swimming and diving team.
This evening Mr. A. J. Perring ,
Chairman of the Committee of the Southern Counties' Amateur Swimming Association, is to talk about Championships and especially about next week's events. On Saturday, July 4, many of the finals will be decided.

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.

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