A programme recalling past races on the eve of the Norwegian challenge to Scotland on the Clyde this year
Original script by Guy Christie
Adapted and produced by R. F. Dunnet
The Seawanhaka Cup, the oldest-established international challenge trophy for small yacht racing, derives its name from a sailing club with headquarters on Long Island Sound, U.S.A. It was originally awarded to the winner of a race between an English-owned small yacht and an American,
The trophy was first brought to the Clyde in 1922 by the late Fred J. Stephen with his yacht Coila III ; he held the Cup until 1925. Subsequently the trophy was won by Norwegian and American yachtsmen and in recent years the contest has more or less been a three-cornered one between Americans, Norwegians, and British. Last year, on September 17, 18, and 19 in Oyster Bay, U.S.A., J. Herbert Thorn , representing the Royal Northern Yacht Club of Scotland, won the Cup back from America by defeating the representative of the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club of the United States, who were then the holders.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
