'I would do almost anything to be there. If the Lord spares me, I'll find the money to get there every year until they put me in a box and slam down the lid.' For 362 days a year,
Cheltenham is a sleepy, dignified spa town, but for the remaining three it's more like
Dawson City at the height of the gold rush. Thousands of Irishmen descend on the town for the National Hunt Festival. They spend like lords, back
Irish horses, laugh, sing, curse and revel in the glorious anarchy of it all.

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.
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.
