Open Freak Hill Climb for Motor-Cycles
(Under the auspices of the Birmingham Motor Cycle Club)
A running commentary by Graham Walker from Red Marley, Worcestershire
Annually on Easter Monday the Red Marley Hill Climb for motor-cycles draws large crowds to the Abberley Hills in Worcestershire: The event is organised by the Birmingham Motor Cycle Club, and was first held in 1928. Many famous riders take part, ascending this freak hill in pairs. In the middle is a stretch with the terrifying gradient of I in 1 1/2, as steep as the roof of a house!

: SPAIN. BOTH SIDES OF THE LINE

The war in Spain is still headline news, and much curiosity is expressed about what is actually happening both at the front and behind the lines. So once again two Englishmen who have recently been in Spain are to come to the microphone to describe what they have seen, one from the Government side, the other from the Insurgents' side. As in the former talk, on March 25, the order in which they will speak will be decided by the toss of a coin in the studio immediately after the announcement.
The speakers' object is to give a glimpse of the actual conditions of civil warfare, and their talks will be based on their own personal observat'on and experience.

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.
