3.15 THE A.A.A. CHAMPIONSHIPS
A running commentary on the 3 miles, the 220 yards, the 120 yards hurdles, the mile, and other events by H. M. ABRAHAMS from White City Stadium
See the article on page 10
The well-known commentator, H. M. Abrahams , great athlete and Cam-bridge man, is to be helped in the commentary by Jack Lovelock , a New Zealander and Oxford man, winner of the 1,500 metres at the Olympic Games and the most famous miler in the world.
It is proposed to interrupt the broadcast at about 3.30 to take listeners over to Maze Racecourse, Down Royal, to hear something of R. C. Lyle 's commentary (to be given in full on the Northern Ireland wavelength) on the second year of the Ulster Derby. Like the Blue Ribbon of the Turf run on Epsom Downs, it is open to three-year-olds, but, unlike it, geldings may run as well as entire colts and fillies, and winners are penalised. The distance is 1 mile 3 furlongs 110 yards, as against 1½ miles.

: Palace of Varieties

(Seventh visit to this popular theatre)
So excellently managed is that West-end house, the Palace of Varieties, and so high is the standard of its Variety bills, that broadcasts are to be given from it every other Saturday night from the middle of September.
In tonight's programme listeners are to hear Charles Penrose, the popular laughing comedian and one of the earliest of broadcasters; Suzette Tarri, character comedienne, whose quaint and humorous personality always gets over;
G.H. Elliott , the original Chocolate Coloured Coon; Eddie Windsor, teamed up with 'Monsewer' Eddie Gray, that droll fugitive from the Crazy Gang, who has never broadcast before, except in a Henry Hall Guest Night; Robert D'Albini, Continental operatic baritone, the immortal Bransby Williams, in a selection from his repertoire; Jay Laurier, the famous Yorkshire comedian, in some of his old-time successes; and Payne and Hilliard, who will probably do their celebrated Napoleon sketch.
The programme will be described from the stalls by Ralph Truman and Bertha Ricardo.

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.
