: TONGUE-TWISTER BEE

, Teams:
Scots v. English
Chief Twister, P. I. Keith Murray
Twist Reader, Paul Ellingham
This is another variation of the spelling-bee idea that has proved so popular with listeners. Paul Ellingham, of the studio staff in Edinburgh, whose idea this programme is, has been for the last few weeks ferreting out and learning to repeat all the most difficult sentences in the English language-the sort of traps that make sober people feel they could never by any chance pass a test at the police station!
On investigation it proved that the range of tongue-twisters is quite narrow, and listeners will probably meet a few old friends such as ' The Leith Police......' and ' Truly Rural' in the course of the programme.
The scoring rules will be explained at the beginning of the broadcast.

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.
