: THE OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE BOAT RACE

A running commentary by John Snagge from the launch Magician, following the crews
John Snagge , expert broadcaster and prince of boat-race commentators, will have with him in the launch two expert oarsmen whom he may call upon at any moment-To A. Brocklebank , who stroked the Cambridge boat to victory three years in succession, and E. G. Tomlin , who rowed for Oxford in 1935. Another expert broadcaster in Thomas Woodrooffe will be on the roof of Harrod's warehouse to tell listeners the distance between the boats, a distance which those in the launch behind can only guess at.

at Crowle
The Worcestershire Hunt
Point-to-Point
A running commentary on the race for Lady Dudley's Cup by Major G. Phipps-Hornby from Crowle
It is of interest that this meeting is held at Crowle Green, a few miles from Droitwich. The race for Lady Dudley's Cup is one of the most famous point-to-point races in the country. The gallop is over four miles of grass and hunting fences, and it is a condition of the race that every entry has been hunted regularly during the season. Major Geoffrey Phipps-Hornby , who described the race last year, will be in the paddock, which will give him a commanding view of the whole course.

: Motor Racing THE CORONATION TROPHY

A commentary on the first heat by F. J. Findon at the Grand Stand and Michael Standing at the Pond
Hairpin from the Crystal Palace Road Racing
Circuit
The specially constructed road circuit at the Crystal Palace, London,
[Continued overleaf
will be the scene of two exciting heats (the first to be broadcast at 3.40, the second at 4.20), and prpbably an even more exciting final when the Coronation Trophy Race organised by the Road Racing Club is run off. (This will be broadcast at 5.45.)Each heat will consist of 20 miles, that is, 10 laps of the two-mile circuit, but the final will be extended to 32 miles. At the time of writing the entry includes two of Lord Austin's racing ' Sevens ', Bira, driving Prince Chula's E.R.A., Arthur Dobson in a similar make of car, four Delahayes, and that popular Midland sportsman, Percy Maclure, at the wheel of a Riley. F. J. Findon, editor of The Light Car, will be at the Grand Stand. His commentating box overlooks the starting line, and the cars will roar past within two or three feet of the microphone. On the far side, at Pond Hairpin, Michael Standing will be in a position to see the cars race along the Terrace Straight. He will lose them in the Glade to see them again rushing towards him at Fisherman's Rise to negotiate the tricky corner where he will he stationed. Findon will pick them up again coming down New Zealand Hill towards Stadium Dip, opposite the Grand Stand. Thus listeners will hear the continuous progress of the race.

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.
