THE LORD MAYOR OF LEICESTER and W. LINDSAY EVERARD, M.P. followed by a Commentary on the Proceedings and the Air Display by E. C. BROWN and Squadron-Leader H. J. SAKER , R.A.F.
Relayed from Leicester Airport Leicester is among the first Midland cities to have an aerodrome of its own. The opening ceremony was to have been last year and a relay had been arranged, but the drought affected the grass so adversely that the function was postponed. Mr. Lindsay Everard , M.P. for the Melton Division, has been largely responsible for the arrangement of the series of broadcast talks and discussions, ' Looking to the Air '.
Squadron-Leader H. J.
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.
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.
