: The Lord Mayor's Show

'I have chosen a nautical theme for this year's
Lord Mayor's Show because it is a subject in which I am deeply interested, having spent
17 years at sea with the Canadian Pacific Line after attending the Nautical College,
Pangbourne.The floats will reflect the interest and involvement of the City's financial institutions with shipping and Britain's sea trade. Also included are bands and marching contingents of Royal sea-going organisations. I am particularly pleased that for the first time in more than a century the River Thames will feature as part of the Show illustrating the tunning of the Port and the various organisations involved with the river.' The Lord Mayor of London
London's great free show takes place today when the new Lord Mayor, Alderman Sir Robin Gillett, Bt, leaves the Mansion House in his Golden State Coach and drives in a splendid procession through the City streets to the Royal Courts of Justice.
Listen to the bands!
See the carnival floats! And look out for Keith Chegwin!
He'll be there - somewhere Commentator

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
