The Warwickshire County Finals
Coventry v. Aston
A commentary by Harry Walker from the Priory Street Baths,
A water-polo team consists of seven players. Only the goalkeeper is allowed to use both hands at once and to stand when playing the ball. Seven minutes' actual play in each direction makes a match ; time for tricks, penalties, and stoppages not being reckoned. The goalkeeper may not go outside the four-yard line, and the two-yard line represents the offside area.
Coventry have held the Warwickshire County Championship since 1926, have won the Midland District Championship six times, and were Club Champions in 1933. They have two international players, Roy Baker and Arthur Wood. Aston have been Birmingham and District Champions twelve times and have held the Midland district title four times since the war. They too have an international in ' Baby ' Hill.
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

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
