The ' Sheffield Independent' an eye-witness account of the final of the Men's Individual Championship, by Charles Rockliff
That the Sheffield Independent championship is a great event in the crown bowls world is evident from the fact that this year entries have almost reached the huge total of 6,000. For some years the candidates have represented clubs from many areas in Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire, and Derbyshire. Important games such as the one listeners will hear described this evening are played at Millhouses, Sheffield, and this particular competition is under the rules of the British Crown Green Amateur Bowling Association.
Charles Rockliff , who is to give this talk, is a Leeds man who is a great authority on bowls and bowling greens.
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,
