: SIX-DAY BICYCLE RACE

The First Day
A commentary by Stewart MacPher son from the Empire Pool and Sports
Arena, Wembley
Listeners are to hear a broadcast every night this week of this exciting, non-stop race which began last night at midnight and will finish at
11.5 p.m. next Saturday.
Stewart MacPherson , who is to give each of the commentaries, will be stationed at the edge of the track, on one of the banked-up corners, on the official platform. Tomorrow night he hopes to slip down to the ' bunks where the riders rest and are refreshed and sustained when they are out of the saddle. He will describe what is going on there.
Among interesting riders in the twelve teams of two which are competing are last year's winners, the Belgians, Buysse and Billiet ; the French brothers, Seres ; the Belgian, Karol Kaers , world champion over many distances ; the two great sprinters, the Belgian, Scherens, and the Dutch rider, Van Vliet ; the Englishman, Syd Cozens , who won the first race at Olympia in 1935 ; and the Dutch rider, Piet Van Kempen, world champion for years, the Steve Donoghue of the game, who will be making his farewell.

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.
