: THE WORLD'S OPENRACQUETS CHAMPIONSHIP

D. S. Milford (holder) v.
Alf Cooper
A commentary during the first seriet
. of seven games by Thomas Woodrooffe from Queen's Club, London
Thomas Woodrooffe is to give a commentary today during the first series of seven games between D. S. Milford, the holder (an amateur), and Alf Cooper (a professional), the challenger; and on Saturday he will give a commentary during the second series of seven games between them.
The championship was in abeyance for some years until Setzler challenged Milford in 1937 over fourteen games-seven to be played in New York, and seven in London. Milford won by seven games to four. Later Alf Cooper was matched with Setzler, and beat him fairly easily.
Cooper was the professional at
Queen's Club for a good many years, and went last year as professional to Eton. During his career he has won both the Professional and the Open Championships.

Nicholas Hannen in Specially written for broadcasting by Peter Cheyney
No. 5-' A Double Double-Cross'
Cast
The action of the play takes place in the North Side, Chicago, apartment of Jake Perelli
Production by John Richmond
In the course of his exploits Alonzo MacTavish certainly gets about the world, and this week you will meet him in a new crime environment, namely, that of American gangsterdom. The issue at stake on this occasion is the Scarsfield Emerald, and the double-cross that is carried out between Jake Perelli and Alonzo certainly leaves nothing to be desired from the dramatic point of view.

: QUESTIONS IN THE AIR

' Empire Migration'
George Gibson
The aim of this new series, talks in which will be given every Tuesday for some weeks to come, is to present, from the lips of authoritative speakers, surveys of some of the more important questions of the day. The questions selected will all be topical in character, though not necessarily of last-minute topicality. Empire migration, for example, has for some time been a ' question in the air ', owing to the steady decrease of migration from this country to the Empire during recent years. In 1913 over 280,000 emigrants left Britain to settle overseas, but between September, 1937, and September, 1938, only a tenth of that number left this country. George Gibson is a member of the Overseas Settlement Board.

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.
