: Billiards TOM REECE versus HORACE LINDRUM

A Running Commentary by JOHN GOUGH
Relayed from the Nile Billiard Rooms,
Glasgow
In December, 1934, the first billiards running commentary in the history of British broadcasting took place in this famous billiards match room in West Nile Street, Glasgow. On this occasion Tom Reece , beloved veteran of British billiards, and young Horace Lindrum , nephew of the great Walter, will be playing their match in the Daily Mail Gold Cup competition. For twenty minutes listeners will hear all about the play.
John Gough , who does the commentary, is feature programme writer in the Scottish region, and has a long tale of broadcast successes to his credit. Last of these was the James Watt bi-centenary programme.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
