: THE CAMBRIDGESHIRE

A Running Commentary on the Race
At the start, TOM WALLS At the finish, R. C. LYLE from Newmarket
The Cambridgeshire has been run at Newmarket every year for nearly a century ; for three centuries there has been racing at Newmarket. In 1634 Charles I and his court were there for the spring meeting. In 1675 Charles II won a plate ' by sheer ability in the saddle'. Three years later he won another, and Nell Gwynn was present-And Newmarket is still the metropolis of racing.
There are more trainers, racehorses, stables, gallops there than anywhere in the world. It is the headquarters of the Jockey Club, founded about 1750, and is allotted eight meetings a year, of which the Houghton meeting held this week is the last.
The great attraction is the Cambridgeshire (1 mile, 1 furlong), a handicap that is a complement to the Cesarewitch (2 miles, 2 furlongs), run at Newmarket a fortnight ago. Today's race, run over a peculiar distance, too long for a sprinter, too short for a stayer, is one of the most difficult to win. Not since Christmas Daisy won it in 1909 and 1910 has it been won by the same horse two years in succession.
Today R. C. Lyle and Tom Walls , owner of April the Fifth, are to give the first commentaries on the Cambridgeshire, and the first from Newmarket.

: Act II of Johann Strauss's Opera Die Fledermaus (The Bat)

from Sadler's Wells Theatre
Scene : Ballroom at Prince Orlofsky's
Cast in order of appearance
Conductor, Warwick Braithwaite
Producer, Clive Carey
Chorus Master, Geoffrey Corbett
The scene of Act II is a fancy-dress ball. It is chiefly concerned with a violent flirtation between Rosalinda and her own husband, who has failed to penetrate her disguise. Before that, in front of her very eyes, he has been flirting with her own maid, whom he has also failed to recognise. One of the big songs in this act is a czardas, sung by Rosalinda, who is dressed as a Hungarian Countess. It is in the traditional Hungarian style, alternating between the slow Lassan and the brilliant excitement of the Frischka.

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.
