Royal Family

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.
To mark the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Queen's Accession to the Throne, a special showing of the celebrated film by Richard Cawston
When this film was first shown on BBC1 in June 1969 it made television history with its unique picture of a year in the life of the Queen and her family. Since then it has been seen by record audiences throughout the world. This is the original full-length version for the benefit of viewers who would like to see it again or in colour for the first time, or for children who haven't been able to see it before.
A joint BBC/ITV production

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.
