an eye-witness account by Graham Walker from Douglas, Isle of Man
At the time of writing, the record number of 139 entries has been received for the Manx Grand Prix road races. Last year the riders totalled 127, when the weather behaved itself rather badly with a great deal of mist over the mountain section. The course is as follows: The start is at a point near Douglas and then the road goes via Ballacraine, Kirkmichael, Ballaugh, and Sulby Bridge to Ramsey. It is from Ramsey that the real mountain section begins. Bray Hill, Ramsey Hairpin , The Gooseneck, East Snaefel Gate, and The Bungalow are then the stages of a seven-mile climb followed by a descent back to the start by way of Keppel Gate, Craig-ny-Baa, and Governor's Bridge. The six laps cover in all 226 miles 760 yards.
The Junior event proves a valuable training ground for riders who intend to compete later in the Tourist Trophy races.
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.
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

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.
