G. N. Osborne
Northern sport, with its many historic games and famous players, comes into radio news with this new series of Saturday-night broadcasts. It is hoped to cover at least thirty sports week by week through the autumn and winter-such pastimes as curling and darts as well as the better-known ones. The high-lights of many a game will be picked out in what promises to be a really bright and ' newsy ' collection of talks ; and personal anecdote as well as authoritative information will have a place. Tonight's hockey talk follows Association and Rugby football on the list.

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.
