A Running Commentary by R. T. BOWMAN on the last period of The International Ice Hockey Match
Relayed from The Empire Pool and Sports Arena, Wembley
(Copyright. See notice on page 71)
This is the third of the four international matches against England. The first was played at Streatham on Wednesday, the second at Queen's Road, Bays-water, yesterday, whilst the fourth will be decided at Richmond on Tuesday next.
Canada is represented by Winnipeg
Monarchs, late world champions ; and apart from the excitement and fastness of the game-often too fast for the eye to follow-the broadcast is notable for two things. Listeners are to hear a running commentary on Canada's national sport and it is to be given by a Canadian and as seen from a Canadian's point of view.
There will be an article on ice hockey by R. T. Bowman in next week's RADIO TIMES, on sale on Friday, March 8-the day preceding this broadcast.
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.
