: THE OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE BOAT RACE

seen from the river and the air
A commentary by John Snagge from the laungh Comma following the crews and by S. J. de Lotbiniere from an aeroplane overhead
See the air- photo plan on page 9
This year, as explained on page 8, a Boat Race commentator will take wings, for S. J. de Lotbiniere , lookipg down on the river from a circling aeroplane, will bring listeners a comprehensive bird's-eye view of the whole occasion. Hitherto a commentator has been stationed on the roof of Harrods Depository, a position that will not be taken up this year.
John Snagge , who since 1931 has followed the race from the launch Magician, will be hard in the wake of the crews once more, this time aboard the Consuta. This famous launch has been used for many years by Henley umpires and the coaches of the varsity crews. It was used by the Duke of Windsor, when he was Prince of Wales, on the last occasion that he followed the Boat Race just after the war.
There will be few preliminaries this year, and the broadcast will start more or less from the ' off '.
Snagge, by the way, is an Oxford man, while Lotbiniere comes from the rival university.

: MOTOR RACING AT DONINGTON

British Empire Trophy Race
Organised by the British Racing
Drivers' Club
A commentary by F. J. Findon and Alan Hess from Donington Park
Flashing round the twisting Donington Course this afternoon, at average speeds of between 60 and 80 m.p.h., will be an array of crack British and Continental drivers competing in the first road race of the season for the handsome British
Empire trophy. The entries are divided into three groups, according to their engine capacity, and handicapping is done on a system of credit laps—that is to say, all the competitors get off from the mark together, the smaller cars starting with three or four credit laps in hand.
The mass start makes a particularly exciting spectacle for the commentator to describe, and he will have a fine view of it from his position in the Grand Stand.

: INTERNATIONAL CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIP

A commentary on the start by Harold Abrahams from the Ely Race Course, Cardiff
The International Cross-Country Race, which is run over a total distance of nine miles-two laps of the Ely Race Course and then three laps of two miles each in the surrounding country-is one of the most formidable tasks that face the long-distance runner.
Teams from England, Wales,
Scotland, Northern Ireland, Eire, Belgium, and France will be competing in this, the thirty-second race. England have won twenty-five times and have been second the other six times. France is the only other country ever to be successful.

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.
