The Band of His Majesty's Coldstream Guards


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.
(By permission of Colonel Arthur Smith , D.S.O., M.C., Commanding Coldstream Guards)
Conducted by Lieut. J. CAUSLEY WINDRAM,
Director of Music Coldstream Guards
A Coldstream Guards Band existed as early as 1742. Many of the early bands were composed of civilians; but in 1783 a petition was made for the regiment to have a military band of its own, and one was enlisted in Hanover by the Duke of York. It consisted of 12 players. The number was augmented to 20 in 1815, and the Band was in Paris during the occupation by the Allies. A hundred and fifteen years later, the Coldstream Guards Band represented British Army bands at the funeral of Marshal Foch.

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.
