: INTERNATIONAL ATHLETICS

A commentary on the 120 yards hurdles, 880 yards, 440 yards, and 440 yards hurdles, by H. M. Abrahams , from the White City
Stadium
Athletes from the U.S.A., Belgium, Canada, Eire, Estonia, France, Hungary, Italy, Norway, and Poland are to meet the best athletes in Great Britain in thirteen events.
The Americans include
Perrin Walker , over 6 ft. 5 in. in height, one of the tallest sprinters in the world ; Melvin Walker , their Negro high-jump champion who last year cleared 6 ft. 10 in.; Chuck Fenske , second to the great Glenn Cunning -ham in the American Championships this July and credited with inside 4 min. 1 1 sec. for the mile ; and Cornelius Warmerdam , who has vaulted 14 ft. 6 in.—4 inches higher than the British record.
Outstanding among the Europeans is M. Szaho who holds the European record for 1,500 metres and the world's record for two miles.
Donald Finlay will have to try conclusions with Allan Tolinich , who was second in the American Championships. The world's record-holder, S. C. Wooderson , will not compete in his star event, the mile, but will be running in the 880 yards. In addition to commentaries on the 120 yards hurdles, 880 yards, 440 yards, and 440 yards hurdles, listeners will probably hear accounts of the other events.

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.
