: CRICKET

Oxford v. Cambridge
A commentary during the first day's play, by E. W. Swanton, from Lord's Today the rival universities start on their second century of matches. Last year's game was the hundredth, and of these hundred Cambridge have won 46, Oxford 38, and 16 have been left drawn. It is an interesting, if somewhat disquieting, reflection on modern cricket that of these sixteen drawn matches five have occurred during the last ten years, and a similar tendency has been noticed in the Eton v. Harrow matches. All the same 'Varsity cricket is usually cricket at its best, with both sides all out to win, and the match this year should prove to be a closely fought game.
The 'Varsity match is generally regarded as a testing ground for future amateur county cricketers, and more than a few who have proved themselves in this game at Lord's have gone on to win higher honours. Among these might be mentioned C. B. Fry , A. P. F. Chapman , E. Crawley. E. R. T. Holmes , R. W. V. Robins , Norman Yardley , P. A. Gibb , and the wizard Duleepsinjhi.

: SIDNEY TORCH

at the Organ of the Gaumont State,
Kilbum
Sydney Torch studied the piano as a child and got his first job in a cinema at E3 a week. In 1927 he was a pianist with the orchestra that played at the Broadway Cinema, Stratford. There was an organ there -probably one of the first cinema organs in the country-and he would creep in and practise it when there was no one about. This brought him a reprimand, but also the job as assistant organist when the talkies came in and the orchestra was scrapped.
Later Torch became assistant organist to Quentin Maclean at the Regal, Marble Arch, and subsequently to Reginald Foort. When Foort left he took over the job of organist at the Regal. It was then that he dropped piano-playing and made a full-time job of the organ. He spent the five years from 1929 to 1934 at the Regai, and declares that he learnt a great deal about the technique of organ-playing from his association with Maclean and Foort. At the end of 1934 he went to the Edmonton Regal, and was soon heard broadcasting from there. Leaving Edmonton, he joined Harold Ramsay for a short time, and eventually went to his present post at Kilburn, from where he frequently broadcasts.

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.
