Presented by Denis Morris
This programme will consist of an account of a village cricket match, an interview with a famous player, and impressions of a county match. The village match will be between two old rivals, Moreton-in-the-Marsh, in the Cotswolds, and Shipston-on-Stour. The commentator will be Percy Dewey , of Chipping Campden, who has frequently broadcast and took part in the first Midland broadcast on village cricket. Denis Morris , who is presenting the ' Cricket Interval ' series, will interview at the microphone, R. J. Crisp , the old South African fast bowler, on touring in England. R. J. Crisp now plays with Sir Julien Cahn 's XI and is doing journalistic work in Nottingham. A. W. Carr, the old
Nottinghamshire cricket captain, will give his impressions of whichever first-class match in the Midlands provides the most interesting cricket.

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
