: THE GRAND NATIONAL

A commentary on the race from the Grand Stand by Thomas Woodrooffe assisted by a race-reader from near the Canal Turn by Richard North assisted by a race-reader and at the start by Victor Smythe from Aintree Racecourse
The Grand National, blue riband of chasing, run over two circuits of the stiffest course In the world, is an event of international interest, second only perhaps to the Derby. The course is 4 miles, 856 yards, and the horse that can jump the fences and stay the distance is a ' good 'un ', whatever his luck may be.
In 1934 the great Golden Miller won it, and though he valiantly tried to win it a second time, he never succeeded, and has won his well-earned rest. His owner's colours, however-blue and yellow—will be carried by the favourite Kilstar, if all goes well, and loud will be the cheers at Aintree if Miss Dorothy Paget wins the National again.
New observation posts for the commentators are being arranged this year to give them a better view of the race, and therefore to give listeners a better idea of it. Thomas Woodrooffe will be somewhere on the Grand Stand, Richard North somewhere near the Canal Turn, and Victor Smythe at the start.

Dvorak's Third Symphony
Like Brahms, Dvorak did not venture upon the difficult task of writing a symphony until he felt sure of his powers. His first three symphonies were composed during the years 1874-5. They show a remarkable maturity of technique and thought and spontaneity of inventir.
No. 3 in F is a happily conceived work full of melodic charm and rhythmic vigour. It is dedicated to Hans von Billow, who, in a letter of thanks to the composer, said : ' A dedication from you who-next to Brahms-are the most God-inspired composer of the day, is a higher distinction than any kind of decoration bestowed by a prince ; I accept this honour with the heartiest thanks.'

Johan Svendsen (1840-1911), second only to Grieg on the roll of nineteenth-century Scandinavian composers, is now remembered for his orchestral pieces ' Carnival in Paris ', the legend ' Zorahayda ' (written in 1895 and based on Washington Irving's ' Rose of the Alhambra '), the ' Norwegian Artists' Carnival ' (1909), and the four Norwegian Rhapsodies. The latter were composed in 1897-9 and given their first performance in Copenhagen under the composer himself in 1899.

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.
