: COUNTY CRICKET

Surrey v. Somerset and Gloucester v. Lancashire
Commentaries during play by Howard Marshall from Kennington Oval and P. G. H. Fender from the County Ground, Gloucester
County cricket started earlier this week, but the microphones are today out by the green sward for the first time this season. An ambitious scheme for broadcasting cricket matches has been prepared, and for the first time it is the BBC's intention to cover by broadcast commentaries every county taking part in the championship. It will not be possible to bring accounts from each county's home ground in every case, though there should not be a cricket fan in any part of the country who will be unable to follow, at some time or another, the fortunes of his home team.
Howard Marshall ,
P. G. H. Fender , E. W. Swanton, and Michael Standing will, as previously, share the cricket commentaries among them. Programme timing for cricket broadcasts will be from 1.0 to 1.30 and 5.30 to 6.0 when two matches are being described, and 1.15 to 1.30 and 5.45 to 6.0 for single matches. A popular feature of this year's cricket season will be the visit of the West Indies team, which can always be relied upon to produce cricket at its liveliest and best.

leave for the Dominion of Canada
A description of the Royal drive through Portsmouth and the departure of H.M.S. Repulse from Portsmouth
The Royal Train should reach Portsmouth Town Station about
2.15, and the King and Queen will be received by the Lord Mayor before setting out on their drive to Farewell Jetty. There will be three observers: one overlooking the steps of the Guildhall opposite the Station ; one on the Semaphore Tower overlooking the dockyard ; and one-Thomas Woodrooffe-on the jetty itself. As H.M.S. Repulse moves off on her voyage to Canada with Their Majesties on board, the last sound to be heard will be music played by the ship's band on the quarterdeck.

The Hard Court Championships of Great Britain
A commentary during one of the final matches by F. H. Grisewood from Melville Park, Bournemouth
The British Hard Court Championships are an annual event important enough in themselves, doubly important in that they are a kind of warming up for Wimbledon. Players show their paces in the first big open-air tournament of the season, and form is judged, and choices for later honours are forecast.
F. H. Grisewood , who will be beside the court to describe part of the match for the men's finals, has given commentaries on this event in previous years. Last year the championships were not broadcast, but Grisewood gave an eye-witness account in the news the same night. It is difficult to say who will be the likely finalist, though one thing is certain, namely, that Kho-Sin-Kie, the brilliant young Chinese player who beat Austin in the final last year, will defend his title with spirit.

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.
