A review of Saturday's sport in Wales
Tonight's special feature: Cricket-
Northampton r. Glamorgan at
This Saturday's talk is one of a series started on Saturday, May 7, of this year. The series, to judge from correspondence, appears to have caught on very well. On several occasions since ' Summer Sport' began, special speakers have been brought into the studio to give their
Comments on some matter of topical interest.
Outstanding features have been a description of the Empire Air Display from Cardiff Airport; a talk on bowls by G. W. Gibson ; Norman Tucker chatting about camping ; and E. W. O'Donnell on the Welsh A.A.A. Championships at Pontypridd.
One of the main interests, of course, is cricket, and Glamorgan supporters who have been unable to get to Pontypridd today will be able to get some idea of the match from tonight's talk. Next week there will be an account of the Glamorgan v. Somerset match and another special feature will be S. W. Rees on baseball.

Bessie Davies of Tonyrefail carried off the gold medal and silver trophy for the Open Ladies' Silver Cup, the silver cup for the Open Operatic Solo, and a special trophy at the recent Bristol Festival. She won her first prize at the age of six and has since had numerous successes. She attributes her success as a child singer to the tuition she received as a member of the Nantyffyllon Juvenile Choir. Her first National Eisteddfod success was secured at Corwen in 1919, which followed over two hundred prizes in local Eisteddfodau.

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.
