: THE CHESTER CUP

A running commentary by R. C. Lyle , at the Grandstand
R. C. Long, at the Paddock
The start described by Richard North from the Roodeye Race Course,
Chester
The Chester Cup Stakes is a handicap run over the old Cup Course, about two miles and a quarter, which means slightly more than two circuits of the cramped, basin-shaped track on the Roodeve. It is worth about
£2,500 to the winner, and the owners of the first, second, and third horses each receive, by long tradition, a Champion Cheshire Cheese ' of the value of 5 sovs.'.
Last year's winner was Cho-Sen.
This year's winner will be duly recorded by R. C. Lyle. R. C. Long, who is to describe the scene from the paddock before the race, is the well-known racing journalist 'Augur' of The Sporting Life. Richard North , who is to describe the start, performed the same service for the broadcast of the Grand National.

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.

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