A commentary on the race by Thomas Woodrooffe, assisted by a race reader from Prestbury Park, Cheltenham
This meeting is the outstanding social and sporting event of the jumping season, Gold Cup day at Cheltenham being the equivalent of Gold Cup day at Ascot. The race is run over a distance of 3 miles and about 2 furlongs, and over twenty jumps, and has never been broadcast before. Woodrooffe's first horse-race commentary is likely to be on the most exciting steeplechase for many a winter, the interest lying in the rivalry of two horses, Golden Miller and Macaulay, both certain runners, barring accident.
At Park meetings the Miller is a giant, but at Cheltenham he is a giant and a half, having won the race five years in succession. On the other hand, Macaulay, the younger horse, beat the Miller at level weights over 3 miles at Hurst Park three weeks ago' (they are to meet at level weights again). Will the extra distance and the uphill finish give the race to Golden Miller ? Will the younger horse win? Or an outsider turn up?
Woodrooffe will have a race reader with him, the idea being to combine in one voice two pairs of eyes, and the experience of a race reader with that of an expert commentator.

Oxford v. Cambridge
A commentary during the match by Lionel Seccombe from the Corn Exchange, Cambridge
The Oxford boxing Blue, Lionel Seccombe , giving the commentary in the Corn Exchange, Cambridge, tonight, will have vivid memories of 'Varsity boxing there thirteen years ago. In 1925 there were seven fights and the Universities were 3-all when it came to the final. Seccombe, after only a week's training, lost after a gallant fight. It is hoped that listeners will hear something as exciting tonight.
