: THE EBOR HANDICAP

A commentary on the race by Richard North , with a Race Reader,
J. L. Topham from the Knavesmire Racecourse,
York
The time-honoured Ebor Handicap (to be broadcast for the first time) is one of the big prizes of the York August meeting, which opened yesterday and closes tomorrow, and in point of quality might be called the Ascot of the North.
The Ebor is a Plate of 2.350 sovs. (this year's value), second to receive 250 sovs., and third 100 sovs. The course is left-handed and quite flat, I4 miles of galloping over the historic Knavesmire, one of the fairest courses in the world, the draw giving no material advantage to any runner.
Since the war the race has only once been won by the same horse in successive years-Flint Jack, in 1922 and 1923. It was won last year by Sir Abe Bailey 's Weather-vane.

: TERRITORIAL CAMPSING SONG

A visit to the 53rd (London) Medium
Brigade in camp at Larkhill
During the Territorial Army camping period some 100.000 men of all ranks and classes spend a fortnight under canvas either in the country or at the seaside in order to put a practical polish on the training carried out at their ordinary headquarters...
This evening the microphone will visit a typical Territorial camp, and listeners will hear part of a sing-song from the canteen. If any member of the brigade can provide a good solo turn he may be included in the programme, but no special talent will be imported.
It is also possible that listeners will hear a few minutes of night-practice on the ranges.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
