: BACKGROUND TO SPORT

' Famous Races and Race Courses '
A talk by ' Capt. Eric Rickman and Freddie Fox
It is good news for racing enthusiasts that Captain Eric Rickman (' Robin Goodfellow ' of the Daily Mail) is to bring to the microphone one of the best-known jockeys of modern times in the person of Freddie Fox , who was Champion Jockey in 1930-the year he won the 2,000 Guineas on Diolite. The following year he won the Derby on Cameronian, arid won it for a second time on Bahram in 1935. Fox started to ride in 1907, his first important winner being Yentoi, owned by Lady de Bathe (Lily Langtry , who raced under the name of ' Mr. Jersey '), on, which he won the Cesarewitch. Among other big races he won the 1,000 Guineas in 1911 on Atmah, the St. Leger in 1932 on Firdaussi, and the 2,000 Guineas on Bahram in 1935. He would have also won the St. Leger on the Aga Khan's unbeaten three-year-old that year, and so have completed the Triple Crown, but for an accident the day before the race.
Fox retired at the end of last season and is now assisting Captain Gooch, the well-known trainer, in Berkshire. He is known as the Mayor of Wantage', having lived there so long.

: THE FABLES OF LA FONTAINE

A reading by H. S. Ede from the translation of Edward Marsh
On June 28 H. S. Ede read a selection from the Fables of La Fontaine in the translation by Sir Edward Marsh , which is well known for the clever and exceedingly amusing way in which the fables have been freely adapted for everyday speech. Tonight he is to read a further selection, the fables being : — ' Cat into Lady ', ' The Drunkard and his Wife', 'The Gardener and the Squire ', ' The Lion and the Gnat', ' The Old Man and the Three Youths ', ' The Oak and the Reed '. He will give yet another reading on July 17.

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.
