Live coverage from Horse Guards Parade, London, as Her Majesty the Queen takes the salute on the occasion of her official birthday. David Dimbleby describes the scene, as more than 1,000 guardsmen and officers of the Household Division parade before their Sovereign and Colonel-in-Chief. Her
Majesty is accompanied by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, Colonel
Grenadier Guards; HRH the Prince of Wales,
Colonel Welsh Guards; HRH the Duke of Kent, Colonel Scots Guards;
HRH the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, Colonel
Irish Guards. This year, the Queen's Colour of the 2nd Battalion Grenadier Guards is being trooped on the parade, which, by tradition, is in five parts:

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.
