: ICE HOCKEY

World Championship Series
A commentary during play by Stewart MacPherson from the Zimni Stadium, Prague
Today, and again on February 19, listeners are to hear a commentary on the Ice Hockey World Championship, to be played this year at Prague from today until February 19. Last year the Championship was played in England, and Canada won-the winning team, the Kimberley Dyna-r miters, carrying all before them. The year before it was played in Germany, at the Olympic Games at Garmisch. Owing to the complicated ' pool ' system, it will probably not be known which game will be broadcast, but it is hoped that listeners will hear something of the play between Great Britain and Canada.
The Canadian team, entered this year, are called the Sudbury Wolves. They have already started their tour of exhibition matches, have beaten Diisseldorf 3-nil and Bern 5-2, and have drawn with Switzerland. Some think that the Sudbury Wolves may emulate the achievements of the Kimberley Dynamiters. Canada will hear the broadcast. The rink of the Zimni Stadium is an open-air rink of regulation dimensions and is regarded as one of the finest ice-hockey surfaces in Europe. A covered stand to hold over 11,000 people has been built. Stewart MacPherson , who will be broadcasting from the roof of this stand (about 70 feet high), should get an excellent view of the game. He is staying at the same hotel as the British team, and will thus be in constant touch.
MacPherson arrived in England from Canada two years ago, and made his radio debut with a commentary on the occasion of the Lions v. Streatham ice hockey match.

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.
