Children's Party at the Palace 6.00pm BBC1, CBBC
The Queen is holding a huge 80th birthday party in the garden of Buckingham Palace when the handbag containing her speech goes missing. No need to worry, though - it's just the plot of an extravaganza being staged by more than 30 stars of stage and screen, alongside 80 of Britain's best-loved children's literary characters.
Winnie the Pooh, Postman Pat, Peter Pan and the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) will be rubbing shoulders with the likes of Julie Walters, Jonathan Ross, Harry Hill, Sophie Dahl, Bradley Walsh and four stars from the Harry Potter films, watched by 3,000 young guests. As well as the Queen, of course - enjoying the performance with her handbag safely by her side. (Jane Rackham)

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.
