THE TROOPING OF THE COLOUR

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Relayed from THE HORSE GUARDS PARADE
The Trooping of the King's Colour is the most impressive display of military ceremonial that London sees during the year. The Ordinary Trooping of the Colour, that takes place every morning on the Horse Guards Parade is itself an imposing spectacle, and today's performance is carried out on a far grander scale by guards drawn from the whole Brigade of Guards.
The B.B.C.'s commentators will be in an ideal position, over the Horse Guards arch leading from Whitehall to the Parade. Directly below them will be the King himself, and the whole of the ceremony takes place under their eyes. The sharp words of command shouted across the square, the clang of rifle-butts and jingling of harness, and the music of the massed hands will all, it is hoped, come into the microphone, as well as the running commentary itself.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
