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.

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.
