Commentaries by: AIDAN CRAWLEY (Racquets)
THELMA CARPENTER (Billiards)
P. N. S. CREEK (Football)
Today's commentaries are full of contrast-men, women, and boys. Public school men playing racquets, women playing billiards, boys playing football.
As to racquets, the commentary is on the final of the Noel-Bruce Cup (Public Schools Racquets Doubles) and the commentator is Aidan Crawley , a very great player himself, both at Harrow and since, who reached championship class.
As to billiards, Ruth Harrison is as much above snooker players of her sex as is Joyce Gardner above billiards players. Both are World Champions. The two girls often meet in competition and beat each other regularly. Today's match is for one thousand points up, for a substantial prize. The commentary will be given by Thelma Carpenter , of Bournemouth, an ex-Women's Billiards champion who joined the ranks of the professional players two or three years ago.
And as to football, both teams are drawn from secondary schools. The ground at Willesden holds 15,000 spectators, and no doubt some of them will be on the look out for promising players to represent their countries in the schoolboys' internationals later in the season. The commentator is F. N. S. Creek , the famous Corinthian player, who made his radio debut as a commentator in last year's Varsity Soccer match, and shared with Ivan Sharpe the description of the Cup Final.

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.
