Party at the Palace


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.
Live from the gardens of Buckingham Palace, an incredible array of national and international singing stars take part in an historic concert of a lifetime -the culmination of BBC Music Live - followed by a street party in the Mall and a fireworks display.
In front of the 12,000 lucky people invited by the Queen through a national ballot, and in the presence of Her Majesty, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, Princes William and Harry, the Princess Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Wessex and other members of the royal family, this unrivalled musical celebration of the Golden Jubilee includes performances by Paul McCartney , Elton John , S Club 7, Will Young, Ricky Martin , Tom Jones , Blue, Queen, Cliff Richard , Eric Clapton , Shirley Bassey , Phil Collins ,
Mis-Teeq, Atomic Kitten, former Beach Boy Brian Wilson , Ozzy Osbourne , Tony Bennett , and many more. The proceedings are hosted by, among others, Ben Elton and Lenny Henry , with a special guest appearance by one of Her Majesty's most loyal subjects - Dame Edna Everage.
At 10.30 the Queen leaves Buckingham Palace to join the party in the Mall, David Dimbleby describes the scenes as Her Majesty lights a beacon, the last link in a chain of flares lit across the Commonwealth and the UK earlier today. The beacon will, in turn, ignite a spectacular fireworks display from the roof of Buckingham Palace.

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.
