The story of Bowling in Scotland
Written by Jack House
Produced by R. F. Dunnett
The title for this programme on bowling is taken from an invocation : ' May the bowler's foot never gang weary or the eye grow dim that follows the biased ball as it courses up the green! And may thf last shot of all find every one of us up *o the mark.'
It follows the same lines as the radio-magazine reviews of sport in Scotland that have been produced by R. F. Dunnett under the title of ' Fan Fare '.
The programme will trace the beginning of bowling north of the Tweed to its progress at the present day, when its devotees are numbered in thousands of men and women.
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.
