Commentaries by S. B. Carter and David Gretton
Ploughing Competitions at Moreton-in-the-Marsh began in 1933, the Moreton branch of the National Farmers Union having felt that they would improve the standard of work in the district. The Gloucester County Council assisted the movement by lending ploughing and hedging experts. Entries have grown to well over a hundred, and classes have been added for dry-walling, root crops, sheep, and sheep-dog trials. This broadcast, however, will be confined to ploughing.
The chief award is the George Mitchell Challenge Cup, named after a Cotswold man who was twice champion ploughman of England.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
