at Shelsley Walsh
A running commentary on the first part of the afternoon's programme by F. J. Findon and Alan Hess
F. J. Findon has a long record of broadcasts from Shelsley Walsh ; both he and Alan Hess are well-known motoring journalists. Hess won the Brooklands Relay Race in 1933, was a member of the winning team in the 1935 Brooklands 500-mile relay race, and finished fourth in the recent twelve-hours race at Donington Park.
The record for the Shelsley Walsh climb, which has two tricky hairpin bends at steep gradients in its 1,000 yards, is held by Raymond Mays.

: KING'S CUP AIR RACE

A commentary on the scene at the finish by R. Bennett from Hatfield Aerodrome
The King's Cup Air Race, for which there are 31 entrants this year, starts and finishes at Hatfield. The course for the eliminating contest flown on Friday, is: Hatfield, Cam-bridge, Skegness, York, Scarborough, Whitby, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Portpatrick, Newtownards, Dublin. The course for today's final is: Dublin, Newtownards, Portpatrick, Carlisle, St. Bees Head, Blackpool, Stoke-on-Trent, Leicester, Cardiff, Hatfield.
To avoid accidents, the fastest machine will leave Hatfield first on Friday. But in the final the starting order is reversed, so that the first machine to cross the finishing line today will be the winner.

: Another Famous Trial THE TRIAL OF LORD MOHUN

Research by George Wright
Production by H. L. Morrow
Dissolute rakes were common enough in the Stuart peerage, but the seventeen-year-old villain of this trial before the House of Lords in 1693 was, in his way, unique. Twice tried and twice acquitted of murder by his peers, Mohun ended his short life in a savage duel. The main facts of his career are told in a short article on page 12.

: CHAMBER MUSIC

The Lyra Quartet:
Gordon Walker (flute) ; David Wise (violin) ; Anthony Collins (viola) ;
John Cockerill (harp)
The broadcasts of the Lyra Quartet have now become a regular and highly popular feature. Apart from the fact that they provide listeners with the opportunity of hearing many chamber works for unusual combinations of instruments, the actual quality of their playing is always of a super standard. This is brought about by the fact that, in addition to numerous rehearsals, each member of the combination is a master of his instrument.
Gordon Walker , the founder of the Quartet, is principal flute of the London Symphony Orchestra, and was for ten years the principal flute at Covent Garden. He has appeared as soloist in Mozart Concertos at the ' Proms and is also a member, with Robert Murchie , of the famous London Flute Quartet. The violinist, David Wise , is well known as a chamber music player-he was once a member of the Brosa String Quartet-and he is often heard in recitals over the air. Anthony Collins was principal viola of the London Symphony Orchestra, but is now devoting most of his time to conducting and composition. John Cockerill is one of the finest harpists in the country, and is principal harpist of the London Symphony Orchestra.

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.
