A broadcast from Roker Park, Sunderland by John Polwarth, Sal Sturgeon, Ewart Kempson.
Last year more than 15,000 people passed through Roker Park each evening. One night the officials had to cope with a crowd of 37,000. On the occasion of the last broadcast it was impossible for the commentator to move through the crowd quickly enough to describe everything in the time given. So in an attempt to avoid the same dilemma this year three commentators, stationed at different points, will try to do justice to this scene, which can justly be described as the peak point of Sunderland's holiday season.
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.
