The verse narration spoken by VERNON SCANNELL
Vernon Scannell was once a first-class amateur boxer. In this programme he remembers the nervous ordeal that he faced as a youth of sixteen waiting to box in the final bout of the Junior Amateur Championships held in a famous London stadium of the thirties. He remembers, too, another fight: the conflict between two aspects of his temperament-the aspiring poet and the aspiring pugilist. Produced by RAYNER HEPPENSTALL Third broadcast

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
