' Long-Distance Running'
A discussion between J. E. Maync and Ernest Harper
Association Football
Everton v. Middlesbrough
An eye-witness account by H. D. Davies
An unusual feature of this evening's ' Spotlight ' will be the discussion on running. J. E. Mayne , a Leeds cross-country runner and authority on long-distance running, has broadcast before on this fascinating sport, which he considers the greatest in the world.
Ernie Harper , who lives in the Sheffield district in a house presented to him by his admirers, has gained many national and international championships and records. At Glasgow in 1932, for instance, he gained the world's record for two hours' running, during which he covered nearly twenty-one miles ; he has been in Olympic and international teams; and one of his notable achievements was the gaining of second place in the Olympic Games Marathon at Berlin two years ago.
He tells of how early in this race one runner set a tremendous pace and forged well ahead. A Japanese entrant began to strain to catch the leader. Harper, running nearby, counselled : ' He can't keep up this pace-he will run himself out. Stick by me for a bit and "save" yourself.' The leader had, indeed, made his bid too early, and this race was won by the Japanese, Harper coming in second.

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
