: 'I COLLECT—'

4—'Two Million Cigarette Cards '
Frederick Bason
Collectors of today who have to gather modest sets of twenty-five or fifty have no idea of the difficulties of the old-timer such as Mr. Bason. One series of Guinea Gold cards issued about forty years ago consisted of six thousand ; no collector has a complete set.
Mr. Bason also collects autographs
-he has ten thousand-and is the author of a Somerset Maugham bibliography and the ' Cigarette Card Handbook '.

: BICYCLE POLO

A challenge match
Midlands v. South
A commentary by Stewart Mac-Pherson, from Addiscombe Recreation
Ground, Croydon
Listeners are to hear the broadcast of a game that was invented as a form of pleasant exercise by a racing cyclist, who had retired — Richard R. Mecredy — in 1891, enjoyed its day and died out ; and then, curiously enough, was rediscovered by another racing cyclist, who had retired-Cyril S. Scott , though he had never heard of the game.
In 1929 the Bicycle Polo Association was formed for the second time, and the game flourishes. Over one hundred clubs are affiliated to it, representing 170 teams, and the game has upwards of a thousand players.
The South of England will be captained by George Brake , Hon. Secretary of the Association. In his team will be ' Ching' Allin, one of the greatest players, Dick Ong ley, star forward of the Norwood Paragons (the English Champions), and Wally Foxwell , who has partnered Brake for Wren Wheelers for the last ten years. The Midlands will be captained by ' Bunny' Webster, of the Polytechnic Cycling Club, and playing for him will be Richard Kirby , who plays for
Oxford City, H. Carlton , the ' Welsh Wizard' (Welsh International captain), Jimmy Duffin (Oxford City), and W. E. Jones , one of the pioneers of the game in the Midlands.

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.

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