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.

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

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.
