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.

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.
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.
