: MANCHESTER NOVEMBER HANDICAP

A commentary on the race by Victor Smythe , with J. Lawson Topham as race-reader at the Grand Stand, and Richard North at the Half Mile Post from Castle Irwell, Manchester
Year after year the flat season is wound up at Manchester, and once again listeners are to hear a running commentary on the last important handicap on the flat until the Lincoln starts the new season next spring.
The Manchester November Handicap is run over 1 mile 4 furlongs at Castle Irwell, the course right-handed, a straight run-in of five and a half furlongs, the going generally soft.
Provided visibility is good (mists at this time of year are to be expected, and before now the race has been abandoned through fog), it is an admirable race from a commentator's point of view, because from his position on top of the Grand Stand he can see all round the course. The start is on the far side, opposite the Grand Stand. A second commentator will be stationed at a point five furlongs from the 'finish.
Last year's race was won by Solitaire from Velvet Cushion and Marcus Superbus.

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.
