: National Swimming Championships of England

A commentary on the Final of the 100 yards Free-Style Men's Championship of England and the 200 yards Breast-Stroke Men's Championship of England by R.G. Jordan and Stewart MacPherson from the Minehead Swimming Pool.
The English Amateur Swimming Association annually holds a three- or four-day meeting, at which the principal English Championships are held. In view of the Olympic Games in 1940, the present championships, the fifth of the series, are of special interest, as at this meeting swimmers will have to prove their claims to consideration for inclusion in the Olympic swimming team. The championships are being held in the West for the first time.

: ' 'MUSICAL BOXES'

A. J. A. Symons
A. J. A. Symons 's collection of 118 musical boxes is the largest in the world. The boxes range in size from two inches to six feet, from those that play a single tune to others that play as many as 240 tunes. Symons- has studied every detail of their manufacture, and has extensive knowledge of the tunes of their period, but in many instances the tune-list originally supplied with the musical noxes has ' vanished, and some of the tunes have proved beyond his powers of recognition. In his broadcast tonight he is going to ask listeners to help him in his task of identifying some of the tunes which have hitherto defied his efforts.

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.
