3.0 Shooting at Bisley
The King's Prize
The final stage described by Captain E. H. Robinson and S. J. de
Lotbiniere
When the broadcast starts, competitors will just have moved back from the 900-yards mark to begin the final stage of the shooting. In the fifteen rounds at 1,000 yards may well lie the difference between defeat and victory. The King's Prize - it was the Queen's Prize from the year it was founded, in 1860, until 1901 - attracts marksmen from all over the Empire. The shooting is invariably remarkable. Last year's winner, Captain J. A. Barlow , West Yorkshire Regiment, only dropped thirteen points, gaining 287 out of a possible 300. And unless the wind is high or visibility bad, such a feat may well be achieved again or even beaten.
This coveted prize has been won by all ranks from the first winner, Private Ross of the 7th North Yorkshire Regiment, in 1860 to Lieutenant-Colonel Blair of the Sea forth Highlanders in 1929.

3.45 app. Athletics at the White City
Oxford and Cambridge v. Harvard and Yale described by Harold Abrahams (with occasional gramophone records from the studio)
This match, the fourteenth of its kind, consists of twelve events. The first match was held in 1899. Since. 1921 there has been a regular series of matches every other year alternately in the U.S.A. and England. Oxford and Cambridge have won the match five times, Harvard and Yale seven. The last contest held in England, in 1935, ended in a tie. Two years ago Oxford and Cambridge gained their first American victory in the series.
The English Universities' best competitors this year will be A. Pennington in the 440 yards (two years ago he won the 100 and 220 in this match in the U.S.A., the latter in the record time of 21.3 sec. - he and the Cambridge President, R.A. Palmer, are the only Englishmen who competed in the last match in 1937); J.O. Moreton in the 880 yards; J. K. Hawkey and R. A. B. Clough in the 3 miles; J. N. Irwin in the 220 yards low hurdles; and H. Sivertsen in the weight. Harvard and Yale are certain to be strong in the field events, and have as usual 13 ft. pole vaulter.
Harold M. Abrahams competed in these matches in 1921 and 1923.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
