' In May I go a-walking
To hear the sweet birds sing, The blackbird and the throstle A-praising God the King.
It cheers the heart to hear them As I go on my way
With warble. and with pleasant pipe Upon the trees sit they.'

: SIX-DAY BICYCLE RACE

@ The First Day
A commentary by Stewart MacPherson from the Empire Pool and Sports Arena , Wembley
This annual race started at midnight yesterday, May 1, and is due to finish at 11 p.m. next Saturday, May 7. There will be three broadcast commentaries by Stewart MacPherson-the first this afternoon, the second on Wednesday (Regional) at 3.25, and the third on Saturday (National) at 10.50—the last covering the result of the race.
A specially banked track has been constructed over the Wembley Pool ; and MacPherson will convey to listeners something of the unusual atmosphere.
A technical word which may often be used in the commentaries may perhaps need explaining-the word ' jam '. This means that both riders of a team join in and endeavour to steal a lap on the rest of the field. A ' jam ' may start at any time. Frequently at the most unexpected moment when the field is loafing round the track. This naturally puts sudden life into the race and makes for excitement.

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.
