: PARACHUTE JUMPING

by Ray Clark and Bruce Williams from an aircraft flying over Northolt
Aerodrome described by S. J. de Lotbiniere from the air and Thomas Woodrooffe from the ground broadcast from Northolt Aerodrome
It must be clearly understood that this programme will be broadcast weather permitting: low clouds will spoil things just as much as a gale. But if all is well, listeners should hear something of the experiences of two parachute jumpers from the time they go up in an aeroplane to the time they jump out, float down, and return to earth.
To begin with, listeners will hear
Thomas Woodrooffe talking to the parachute jumpers, Bruce Williams and a woman parachutist, Ray Clark , a few moments before they get into the plane. S. J. de Lotbiniere , Director of Outside Broadcasts, is to go up with them, and he will try to keep listeners in touch with all that goes on in the aeroplane. Before leaving the ground it is the job of the parachute jumper to give orders to the pilot, as to the height he is to ascend, the direction he is to take, and so forth ; but last minute orders may be given in the air, and these de Lotbiniere will pass on to listeners.
The big moment of the programme will be when the parachutists leave the aeroplane in turn, each trying to see who can land nearest a given spot on Northolt Aerodrome. Woodrooffe, on the ground, will describe their descent and landing.
This programme is not a stunt. It represents the sort of jump that any parachutist may have to make in the course of the day's work.

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.
