: Cricket as she is played '

The Lighter Side of County Cricket, by JOHN CLAY this is the first of a series of talks appropriate to the summer, and though it will deal with cricket and be given by a first-class cricketer, it will touch on the lighter side of the game. Not John C. Clay leading his men into the Glammorgan field nor, with determined face, taking his run to the wicket, but Clay in the humorous vein he showed when he wandered into the Royal Welsh Show at Aberystwyth and gave over the air a delightful account of his adventures. Cricket lovers will foregather at the microphone in the evenings to laugh over the game they played so seriously on Saturday afternoon.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
