The Children's Royal Variety Performance


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.
Imagine you had a gadget that let you travel to any point in history. Then imagine you could put together a bill of your favourite comedians, pop stars and even cartoon characters.
That will give you some idea of this year's Children's Royal
Variety Performance, An Adventure through Time.
Joseph star Darren Day is the host for a spectacular performance recorded last night at the London Palladium in the presence of HRH Princess Margaret. The show moves through history from the stone age to the space age, with musical guests including Bad Boys Inc, Dina Carroll, Eternal and The Italia Conti Academy Choir. Shane Richie , Mickey Hutton (who wrote the script) and Mr Blobby are on hand to provide the laughs,
Noel Edmonds will be gunging some mystery celebrities, and a host of Disney characters appear in a musical medley from The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book and Aladdin.
And it's all in a good cause: proceeds go to the NSPCC. Producer Kevin Bishop Director John L Spencer

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.
