Horace Lindrum v. Willie Smith
A commentary during play, by Joe Davis from Thurston's Hall
When he describes this afternoon's snooker match between Horace Lindrum and Willie Smith in the Daily Mail Gold Cup Tournament, Joe Davis will be giving his first broadcast commentary. He will be reversing the usual order of things. for Willie Smith , whose play he will be describing, has many times broadcast descriptions of Davis's play.
Davis. who has been world snooker champion for twelve years, and world billiards champion for nine, has had many battles with the Australian wizard, Horace Lindrum , nephew of the great Walter.
Horace is regarded as next best player to Davis, though he will have a difficult nut to crack in veteran Willie Smith , who is still one of the hardest men in the game to beat. A week or two ago Davis made the world's record snooker break of 138. He has won the Daily Mail Tournament for the last two years.

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.
