: Jubilee 77

The Silver Jubilee Celebrations of HM The Queen provided the perfect opportunity for the British to show the world that when it comes to organising great ceremonial events, we do it with a flair and style which is unique.
But beyond the pomp and ceremony the people of Britain had something very special to celebrate. They wanted to show the depth of their affection for their Queen. The pageantry was colourful and dignified; the people's response was personal, warm and uninhibited.
There were dozens of celebrations up and down the land, but in this programme Eric Robson recalls the ones we all shared: the windswept night of the bonfires, when Windsor was besieged; the Thames fireworks; the service reviews; and Jubilee Day, the memorable 7 June.

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.

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.
